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:

Recovery Reminders

Obsessively trying to eat strictly healthy food and micromanaging all your meals is NOT healthy. Being absolutely terrified of certain foods because they are not 100% “clean” is NOT healthy. Feeling bad for enjoying food, regardless of its nutritional value, is NOT HEALTHY.

looking healthy does not mean:

 petite, curvy, small, large,muscular, slim, pretty, well dressed, sweating from the gym…etc

looking healthy means:

 eyes sparkling, real smiling and laughter, skin that glows, a functioning alert body and radiating contentment and positivity about yourself.


  1. Hi Izzy, so I just have a comment/statement to make... I noticed that many girls are making a sort of 're-make' of your blog. The same type of lay out, same type of posts in the same format and even the photographs and food they post are a remake of the type of things you post. Do you ever feel the same way and does it bother you? You are a great inspiration so I'm sure many girls want what you have and the same amount of recognition and followers that you have... So they create similar blogs with similar stories and posts. I just feel people should remember that you are unique and they should be too.

    1. Yeah I've noticed this... but as they say, "copying is the highest form of flattery" (or something like that.). I'm sure they aren't doing it on purpose and even if they are I guess it doesn't matter so much... as long as they don't try to replace me, hahah :) :) but thank you for mentioning it!!
