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:

Mothers day brunch

Hello :)
And wow time passes by quickly! I picked up my phone moments ago an saw that it was almost 3pm. .. but it feels like it was 9am just a short while ago? Time has just flown by today!!!
My day started with a powerwalk in the forest with a podcast in my ears and then a strange breakfast which consisted partly of salad!! My boyfriend must think I am crazy when I ate salad as part of breakfast (but I didn't want it to go to waste,  so I thought I might as well eat it along with my normal breakfast! )

Then he drove me home and I began preparing brunch as it's mothers day in Sweden. The plan was that my sister would help as well, but she was sick so it was all up to me. But I didn't mind, I prefer to prepare brunches and things on my own as I know what to do and can then rush about in the kitchen, make a mess and not worry about someone in the way!!! So in 90 minutes I managed to boil eggs, make normal waffles, gluten free waffles, scrambled eggs, scones, fruit salad and whipped cream!! A little proud of myself as well as it all tasted delicious :)
  I  think brunches are my favourite thing to make and eat!!

^^This is the true me... I might as well be truly honest on here. hahah
I can never be normal in photos!

^My beautiful mum... i gave her chocolate and flowers as well

^They are so cute!!

 I should start a tradition of brunch every sunday!! I definitely wouldn't complain!!! :)
This afternoon the plans are to take some photos of me wearing me in my graduation dress and hat. But as the weather is all grey and rainy, I'll wait and see if it gets better!!! :)
Now I need to let the brunch digest because I am super full - which is a nice feeling because yesterday my stomach was a black hole. I just felt constantly hungry and no amount of food could still it!! So its nice to have a satisfied and full feeling :)

^^This is how i make my dog love me... i have to hold on to her so she doesnt run away!


  1. Such a beautiful happy people:) You definitely have your mothers smile and you do look alike in these pictures.

    1. Haha alot of people say this, but i dont personally see it!!

  2. You look so much like your mum! You seem to be a happy, happy family :) the photo in which you're looking at the food is so funny and spontaneous, made me laugh and think of what it's like to be fully recovered ;>

    1. Thank you :):) being fully recovered is pretty amazing - so dont give up on that goal!


    After reading this I am so motivated to stop counting calories and begin intuitive eating! I think you are a great role model Izzy! You are a great example of healthy, and someone who eats acording to the body's needs. This article pretty much sums up what I've learned about healthy eating from your blog. The body is in fact so very capable of regulating itself :) Maybe this is someting for your readers to see (the artice I mean)? Have a great day
