Life without Anorexia

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

My life at the moment is completely different to how it once was. I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia and depression as well as struggling with self harm and overexercising. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
And since 2012 i have been declared healthy from my eating disorder.

I have been blogging for 7 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 now blog about recovery, my life, veganism and positivity!

Answers part 1 - eating when not hungry, getting your period back, my first summer with a healthy body weight

1. What should I do if I don't feel hunger at all? And I haven't done it in 2 months. 

I would suggest that you try to follow a meal plan where you eat regular meal times and you eat enough energy everyday. Try to eat more high calorie foods so that you dont have to eat as big amounts. Keep eating and try to get your metabolism to work so that you get your hunger and fullness feelings back.

2. How can my period come back? Do I need to gain weigh, eat something special etc 

To get your period back you need to have a healthy weight (=healthy BMI) & a healthy fat procent. Also getting enough energy each day and not over exercising. If you begin exercising too early during weight gain/recovery then your body never gets time to rest and really repair itself and your body feels stressed. Which often leads to a delay in getting your period back. But also you might need to weigh more than before your eating disorder, for your body to feel safe enough to get your period back.

3. Tell us about your first summer as recovered, aka showing yourself in bikini and so on 
I was declared healthy August 2012, and i had just reached my healthy goal weight. At that time i was still learning to accept and love my body. I had struggled ALOT spring 2012, when i was still in relapsing and was binging, purging and restricting as well as trying to find balance with exercise. At the start of 2012 i had around 5kg to gain until my goal wieght and i struggled like crazy to gain them both physically and mentally... but gaining them actually gave me more body confidence and i felt good in my body :) Summer 2012 i felt pretty good in my body :) Though of course, there are ups and downs.

4. What's your fave books?

I love reading though havent been able to read alot recently. My favourites are all Jodi Picoult books, Gone Girl, One Day, Harry Potter series and the Mortal Instruments. But i've read a crazy amount of books and i can never remember the names of the books, so i am sure there are many awesome books which ive read but cant remember the names :)

5. Do you've siblings?

I have an older sister, younger half brother, younger step sister and 2 older twin step brothers :) And in the future i might have another younger step sister (??) but i dont know if i would count her as a step sister as i dont even know her.


  1. Thank you for your advice :)

  2. I love all of this books as well Izzy- especially the Mortal Instruments series! I have yet to read gone girl however, I have heard great things about it! Out of curiosity, do you read the majority of your books in english or swedish? Do you prefer one over the other?

    1. Gone girl was a great book, read it in 2 or 3 days :) Have you seen the film? I recommend to read the book first!!
      I read almost all my books in english, though i should read more in Swedish to improve my written Swedish!
