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 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.
