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:

Be honest with yourself

I believe that one of the factors of a healthy and happy life is being honest with yourself. If you can't be honest with yourself how can you be honest to others... but also that means knowing what you want, what yiu like and don't like. What you want to do or don't want to do. It means being kind to yourself and knowing when you need to make changes because the way you are living life or the choices you are making aren't benefiting you or making you happy. And when you realise this and are honest about it you can make changes and feel happier.  But it also makes for better relationships when you can be honest to others because you are honest to yourself.

So try being open and honest to yourself.... do things need to change? Can you do something differently to make you happier or is there something you need to tell someone which will make things better eventually? Lying to yourself won't make anything better!!


  1. Please Izzy, don t get it in the wrong way but I was wondering if you have a normal body fat because you have abs and I ve always thought that once i ll be weight restored i won t have them anymore neithr when i flex. What i mean is also that i d like to know if i will have them or not, i know that everyone is different but you give me hope. Not just about this but you re really inspiring under several point of view. You don t have to answer if you don t want to anyway.

    1. I have a normal body fat procent ;);) and if you saw my picture on IG that is not how I usually look. And the way a person looks is based on many different things. And remember I've been going to the gym for 3+ years so my body has changed alot from how it was when I was recovered. However I now weigh 6kg more than my goal recovery weight :) you will look the way your body looks at a healthy weight when you reach that weight. Though exercise can change your body. (And p.s the way my stomach looks when I flex is very different from when it's not flexed).:)

    2. Thanks for answering������ i asked you that question as i ve been going to the gym for two years now and i started to see some definition on abs when flexing but now i m gaining and i have to increase my body fat and it seems like i have lost all my progresses, but i guess i ll just have to be patient and wait for my body to find a "balance" ������
      Really thank you XXX

  2. I know this is out of the blue, but ... :p
    once I wrote a so called 'triggering' comment (or so the person who read it taught) so I deleted it. You did not see what I wrote and were a bit confused so you said : I am not quite sure what happened here but let's just keep the comments positive. (or something similar). So I was just wondering... you said you like honesty^, so why arent I allowed to say something that is true? I mean there are some triggering things that should not be said here, I understand that. But what if that is the ugly truth? I a sorry if this bothers you, I dont mean anything bad

    1. Well i dont really know what the comment was... but if its triggering its best to not be posted on here. Of course i like honesty but not everything has to be said either? Even if it is the ugly truth not everything has to be said... sometimes the truth is best said person to person and not just posted online? But i dont know what the comment was so it makes it difficult to say anything.
