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:

Sunday and a day of rest

Sunday and the day after my race.

Even if it was just 10km I could feel it in my body today.  My whole body saying rest!! So that's exactly what I'm doing today. It's cold and rainy outside so what better way to spend the day than with series and snacks with my boyfriend.

Though I have a pounding headache, very tired and just feeling low.  But I'm going to try to enjoy the day as much as possible and am looking forward to a new week.  Have alot of things to fix before I leave so need to make sure I get them done :) and also going to hopefully get around to scheduling posts. Just need to make time for it! !  :)

I hope the weather is better where you are and you all have a great day. Eat something yummy and listen to your body. Make sure to take care of yourself!


  1. Just letting you know You have helped me so much and I cannot thank you enough. I know this time between graduating and going to study and become extra independent is always an overwhelming time. But things will always workout and I to believe you will have a fantastic future! You are extremely intelligent and strong, and those traits will take a a long long way, You are helpful, caring, and have always taken the time to push others to keep going, So I hope you also keep going with this little rocky time. You deserve all the chocolate, nuts, Ben and jerrys, and all the others of your favorite foods ( even if none of this is even Ed related of course ), and happiness you can get, so I'm sending positivity and happiness your way! You've got this!

    1. Thank you so much. I'm glad to hear that I have helped. It's a tough and weirs stage of my life and I know that things will get better. I just need to keep going :) I hope you have had a good week!

  2. Hope you have nice rest! :)

    ..that's so weird -- I got the same chocolate for parts of my snacks today!

    1. Thank you!! The chocolate flavours are so delicious, enjoy them!

  3. Try drinking a ton of water today to help with the headache. You're so awesome and have so much to look forward to (Lisbon, more fun times with your family friends bf etc) you'll get through this. Also, I took a lot of time off between school and career. At first I was sad, bc all my friends were in jobs or more school, but then I learned so much about myself and got a lot more opportunities bc I took the extra time to find something I would truly enjoy. Good luck with everything! Hang in there! Xo

    1. Thank you :) I drink plenty of water but it's a good reminder. It is a tough stage in my life, but it's more than that and not just a phase :/

  4. Thank you for being honest about the tough bits. I was just reading one of your old posts on depression and you know, you *seem* to be so much stronger in managing it now? But I know that people can seem strong and be breaking on the inside. Don't break, Izzy, you are precious and you are never alone. Thank you for being a friend to so many. I am glad you have your family and boyfriend around you, keep safe, stay strong x
