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:

You are NOT your eating disorder

When you are sick it is easy to identify yourself as the sick person. The person with an eating disorder or the silent/distant person.. but that is not YOU. You are so much more than that and you need to remember that. You are not your eating disorder, you are your personality, your interests and hobbies, your future etc

Find out who YOU are. What you like doing, what you want to do with your life!

What i would like all of YOU to do Right Now, is to write a comment below with 2-5+ things that describe who you are or things you like doing which DONT relate to your eating disorder.


  1. Hey Izzy *_*
    Such a lovely idea to keep yourself motivated especially in recovery ;) I love doing such things so I enjoy giving it a try ;) I hate being reduced on my illness, like it often is done by other people: "Oh look there is the anorexic girl" this always frustrates me :(
    Soooo I am a girl who loves:
    -going on a party
    -makes jokes about herself or others
    -can do sports
    -loves driving her car
    -enjoys traveling to other countries and see different places ;)

  2. Hi Izzy!
    Being identified as the sick one is so irritating and a bit disturbing too. You feel like you can´t change your habits because you are expected to be a certain way.
    Things about me:
    -I´m funny and social (small talk is my superpower ;) )
    -I´ve always been very determined of what I want, I work hard on my goals
    -I´ve always loved cooking and food
    -I love to dance
    -I have a secret love for superheros ;D

    Have a great day and weekend!


  3. Hi Izzy! So yeah, i'm the weird geeky vegan girl who's too shy to ask for a sheet of paper, but i enjoy cooking and making so much and love giving my made goods to other people!!! I also love helping other people and animals too! We need more looooooove in this world :P

  4. I enjoy horse riding. I like writing and drawing. I love my dogs. I like walks in nature. I love sleeping. I am a little bit weird and random.

    Okay, I am NOT my eating disorder... I am a girl who loves horse riding, writing, reading, singing/ music and being outdoors.

  7. I'm a GOOD mum
