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 is about change

Absolutely nothing about recovery is easy or comfortable. But it's worth it. That's the difference. #recovery

Part of recovery is change! It is scary, maybe not something you want to do... but you need to. You cant expect to recover doing the same thing you are doing now. I actually remember when i was sick i said, I'll recover, but i wont eat.
  Those 2 meanings dont even go together... there is no possible way to recover but not eat. That was my ED talking.

You need to change.You need to face fears. Go against the voice in your head. Fight the anxiety. Because anxiety doesnt kill you, and that is important to remember.

Make a change today!! Just do it.
  Whether its that you dont exercise, or you eat extra or actually eat that morning snack, or drink that glass of juice. Just do it. Fight the anxiety and know that you will be ok!! Trust me, you will be. You are fighting the ED.
What doesnt kill you makes you stronger. And its the tough times that make you stronger.
Recovery~ could be from drugs, alcohol, an eating disorder or just about anything~ love it


  1. Thank you izzy i really needed this. Im battling at the moment with the fear to change and being able to give myself permission to eat more and allowing my weight to go up. It's so hard and I'm so scared it feels out of control. i don't know how to deal with the anxiety or giving up a way of life that I've used for so long x

  2. Recovery feels so scary at first!! But treat it like a fear of heights. Slowly increase your tolerance to fears you have around food. And when you feel the anxiety building up... talk. Let it out. Or cry. Crying is normal and okay!! Emotions are okay to feel!! Stay strong!! :)
