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:

ED recovery problems

"Why do you think you relapse?"





  1. Izzy, i hope you see this. Yesterday my therapist told me she is happy for me to finish sessions with her. I cant believe it made it this far. You helped me so much - i have read your blog since last year and it really helped lift my mood so many times. Your attitude to life and problems is inspirational. Thank you so much Izzy! To others who are struggling - recovery is HARD and sometimes it feels like nothing is happening but some day it will all click. Once you are recovered it not all perfect either but there are more good days than bad - before (for me) there were only bad days. Life is to be lived, i personally only believe we live once so we need to make the most of it! I wish you all the best in recovering and living your lives. Izzy - thank you, you are an amazing young woman. You dont know how many people you are helping. -Amie

    1. I am so happy for you!! :) I am still working towards recovery but I believe you when you say it is much better to be recovered. Congratulations on recovering from what was probably (and I hope) one of the hardest phases of your life.

    2. Naaw thank you so much. I am so happy to hear that I have helped and we'll done on all your hard work and recovery. Because remember it's YOU who has done all the hard work and gotten through all the bad days!! And that is very true, life has its ups and downs but there are definitely more ups once you have recovered! !! It made me so happy to read your comment, thank you!!
