Life without Anorexia

My motto is
'Dont let the sadness of your past & the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present'

I am a generally happy girl who loves running, going to the gym and eating food!! Though my life has been very different.
I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia & purging tendencies & over exercising. I was depressed and self harmed. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
After alot of struggles, lots of ups and downs, suicide attempts, tears, anxiety, panic and never thinking i would be healthy.
I am now declared healthy from anorexia nervosia.

I have been blogging for 4 years, and my whole journey is written in my posts. I now represent healthy and happiness. I want to show anyone struggling that it is possible to recover, no matter how hard it may seem.

I am happy and healthy and living my life. Going to school, meeting friends and trying to find myself in this world.

I write about my daily life, but also try to write posts about how it was when i was sick, advice and tips.
I am open and friendly, so dont be scared about writing a post or sending me an email at:

Positive April

Happy April the 1st :)

A new month has arrived and that means closer to summer and graduation. Infact its almost a little scary how close to graduation it really is, even if at times it feels so far off. Though something i can say with absaloute certainty and honesty is that I am longing so badly!! In Sweden there are alot of old traditions regarding graduation - which i will talk more about closer to the time - and it's so exciting thinking about them!
My graduation was however not the main aim or focus of this post, but about being positive. Making the best of this month!! April is the month when it generally begins to go from cold/winter to spring/summer... by the end of April it's usually a little warmer, which i am hoping will happen this year so that we don't have to wait until May for the sun to start shining properly :) But to get through these next weeks i have decided that For the whole of April (I.e 30 days) i am going to try to write 1-5 (or more) positive things about the day. So everyday that i post i am going to make sure i write something positive about the day, to really appreciate live. To appreciate the moment and the day.
(And if i forget some day, which i am sure will happen, hopefully one of my readers will remind me!!!)

I am also planning on setting goals for myself this month, as i have barely set or followed goals at all this whole year and i am feeling its time to have some small part goals to aim for. Such as actually writing my CV and starting to apply for jobs - i am pretty sure most summer jobs have already been filled by this stage :( Among other goals! If you are curious i can write out my goals for this month :)

With that being said, I am going to make April an awesome month and stay as positive as i can!!! I am 99% positive most of the time anyway, but now i want to share that positivity and i wan YOU to also join in. To write ATLEAST one positive thing about each day. Or to atleast think about something positive that might have happened!!

If you hate positivity and think that positive things each day will get  boring, repetitive and old... well then i am sorry for you, and you can just skip my positives of the day!! XD


  1. The difference between having a bad day and a good attitude!

  2. Yes! I´m in with the setting goals for this month and positives of the day:)
    My goal for April to finally get rid of my habit and compulsion (and obsession) to exercise before, during and after eating and also not take pauses from studying to do exercises.

    And positive thing today I really felt I learnt something in school :D and it isn´t raining anymore.

    Have a great day!

    1. These are great goals!! Trust me, if you work hard on these goals and getting rid of your habits/obsession, alot can change in these 4 weeks! And those are great positives!

  3. Great idea Izzy! My positive is the perfect sunny weather and getting to study outside :)

    1. Sounds lovely, i cant wait until its warm enough to study outside!!

  4. I'd love to hear what your goals are Izzy if that's alright! Xxx
