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

There is a life beyond counting calories and going to the gym. In 30 years from now, you won’t remember how many grams of sugar that muffin had, or how many minutes you spent on the treadmill. What you will remember is all the birthday dinners you missed out on because you were too concerned with gaining weight. A life controlled by disordered thoughts is not a life at all.
— my early morning thoughts (via roasy)

Your body is not a bank.
Stop treating calories like currency. 
You do not need earn them.
You do not need to save them.
You do not need to swap them.
You do not need to count them. 
Just stop.


  1. Thank you, Izzy, and thank you for embodying this. You are an inspiration :) and I am so grateful you are there...

  2. thanks so much for these, really helped my motivation. i need to eat more (I'm told) and I'm feeling hungry all the time just don't know where to begin but i know i wanna beat this! just how thou yikes?

    1. Focus on eating several times per day, increasing your portions a little each week, getting your body used to the food and eating. Begin with food you like and then add in fear foods and increase your calories to help your body recover. Stay focused on your recovery goals and find healthy coping mechanisms to deal with your anxiety or guilt if you get those. Stay strong and each day fight for recovery, make choices that bring you closer towards recovery.
