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!

Recovery motivation & reminders


  1. Hello Izzy, I've a quick question. You (and other professionals) say that at a healthy weight, you can maintain your weight without calorie restriction. Yet this is my second time reaching a healthy weight, and I need to eat carefully to maintain otherwise I gain. I'm exercising too. What am I doing wrong? Thank you for reading this :)

    1. It could be for many different reasons, such as your metabolism not being fully recovered so that you can't eat a normal amount. This can also be if you exercised during recovery and so you ate very little and your body and metabolism never recovered. But it could also be that maybe the weight you are at is not your actual healthy weight, that maybe you need to gain a little more to be a healthy weight and your body will want to stay there. It could be other reasons such as your body gains weight easier, but most often it's one of those two after a restrictive eating disorder.

    2. Thank you Izzy for replying :) yes it's true, I ate very little during recovery (ca 1500kcal) and exercised. And the doctor mentioned that if I don't get my periods back in the next 3 months, I might have to gain more. I'm so scared, if I will I'll weigh more than ever before. But I'll leave it here, as you might not be able to help me through the Internet haha. By the way I love your blog <3
