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!

If you have any questions leave them in the comment section as i am much quicker at answering there, otherwise you can always send an email: lifewithoutanorexia@hotmail.com

Quality time with my family

Today has been a day of quality time with my family, which has been very nice :) I dont spend alot of time with my family, so when i do its always extra nice. I spent the whole morning with my sister before we bought some lunch and then went to our aunts place to eat lunch and sit and talk and have some coffee and dessert. ( Some type of frozen mango cake thing!)




The time flew away while we were there and before we knew it, it was almost 5pm and we had been there almost 3 hours. So we began to make our way home again where i then ate some cake from yesterday for my snack (not all 3 pieces ;))



My plans had been to spend the evening with my boyfriend, but by the time i came home i just felt tired... even if it is lovely to spend time with other people it can also drain me of energy. So this evening its time for myself with tea, colouring and series (watching True Detective now .)). And also varying my sitting position by sitting in the kitchen and not in my bedroom :):)
   Drinking some tea and eating some proteinfluff (Dont ask for the recipe because i dont recommend it to anyone in recovery - if you want to try it just because, then you can email me)!! Spending my Sunday evening this way has never felt better :) I need my alone time to function properly... anyone else like this? Its good to find balance though with being social and spending time alone... too much of either isnt good according to me!

  1. Hy Izzy!

    Yesterday i was so happy, because my dad bought me 2 portions (28 gramms) whey protein. Today i decided to make one of them (the vanillia) with rasberries. I made it, but it was so terrible. It had a hard taint. I am so sad, because it looks so good:)

    1. Do yiu mean proteinfluff? Some.protein flavours taste sort of weird... The brand i use is delicious ;) and I make my protein fluff wuth casein, not whey... so that might be why ;) try adding sweetner or try another protein powder. However I only use casein when I make protein fluff, otherwise I don't use any other protein powders as I don't find them necessary and it's better to eat food :)

  2. What kind of tea do you drink? Caffeine or herbal? I have heart murmurs-partially from the ed :( so I mainly do decaf. Roibos teas are so good, you should try them. Do they have "republic of tea" brand in Sweden? They make a lot of fun decaf flavors. I love relaxing nights where you can just re group and not have to think about anything like exams or other stressors.
