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:

Peanut butter time

It feels like forever ago since i last had peanut butter. I used to eat it all the time back in 2013 i think, but then i felt that i prefered to just eat nuts as they were and i consumed far too much peanut butter so i just got tired of it. But ive been craving it recently so when my parents went food shopping yesterday that was something i asked if they could buy!!

This mornings brekafast was magical! Yoghurt with muslie, salted peanuts, raspberries and peanut butter & 1 egg & 1 egg white and black coffee. Mmmmmmmm

Today we are taking the boat out the island so I am hoping that it will be good weather :)

Do you have any weekend plans? :)


  1. Wow izzy that looks amazing!! I LOVE peanut butter but unfortunately I haven't been able to have it is a fear food of mine because it has such high calorie content:'(
    If I could just ask a quick question. If yoy have any advice. I usually eat the same meals for every meal (or certain ones I know of so it slightly varies) but that is because I know the total calorie content to eat meal. So for the longest time my breakfast has to be x amount of calories, snack x amount, lunch x amount, and so on. So whenever I get my food ready I don't have what I necessarily want but what l fit that calorie number and it can't go above. The reason is I'm scared I'll gain weight too quickly as I want it to be gradual. But it has been lije this for a looong time but I want to get out of it but I can't. I don't want to reach my goal weight and still have to count these calories and make sure every meal is the same. But then I'll gain weight if I don't aND go over. What do j do?

    1. I am going to answer you in a post coming up today, hopefully :)
