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:

Wake up with a goal each day

One of the hardest things is to wake up in the morning and want to get up out of bed when you have no goal for the day. Then it just feels useless to get up. .m because you have nothing to do, no where to be. Granted if you are always busy and always have a schedule to follow then it's nice to have days where you have absaloutly nothing to do and nowhere to be. That can be relaxing, but when that is your life then it's not relaxing and actually becomes a sort of stress.

For me personally I need goals each day.... even if it's just a goal to go to the gym. Which is something I love and would do anyway,  but that can be my only goal for the day and it makes me get out of bed and more importantly leave the house. I believe it's important to leave the house everyday, do something, see something different.  If you just spend your whole day inside of your apartment or house it makes you feel even more unmotivated and you become trapped in your own thoughts which can make you feel worse.

So your goal for the day can be to go for a walk or go sit outside for a while... just make sure to leave the house. Download some new music or a podcast and listen to that, or maybe bring with you a notebook or some paper and pens and do some writing or drawing while sitting outside.

It's important to have goals. And if you have one big goal,then have small daily or weekly goals which will bring you to the final big goal. This is also important in recovery,  have weekly goals which bring you closer to recovery.  Decide that every week  you will try 3 fear foods or try do something that scares you or holds you back from true recovery. Keep pushing forward and focus on your goal of recovery wuth the smaller goals. I.e you can't just get up one morning and run a marathon and not have done any training previously. You need to focus on the smaller goals which bring you forward and mean you reach your bigger goal!!


  1. Lovely, lovely post. Thank you, Izzy.

  2. I agree- staying in all day is bad news for me. By the end of it I'm irritable and moody and will wake up that way the following morning too.
