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:

Dealing with weight gain - while already a healthy weight (masterpost)

would you maybe do a post on gaining weight when you are already in the healthy range? Maybe because of age, strength training, or just fluctuations? And how to mentally avoid relapsing because of them?

At the moment i dont really have time to write a full post about this - though i can if anyone wants me to later on. So i thought instead i would link to some old posts which might be helpful and answer your question :)

Fear of continuing to gain weight after reaching a healthy weight

Healthy set point

Weight gain while strength training

How to cope with weight gain

How to deal with weight gain

How to maintain your healthy weight

Accept your weight gain and love yourself

Disproportionate and rapid weight gain

Stress of weight gain

Overcoming weight barriers (question)

If i look big now, how will i look when i gain even more weight

Fear of weight gain and reaching goal weight

Binging and gaining weight after weight restoration

Weight distribution and how to gain weight   (old post)

It is also important to remember that weight fluctuates all the time. From morning to night you will weigh more and during stressful times or during that time of month for girls you often weigh more due to water retention. DONT focus so much on the scale, its better to focus on health and happiness rather than getting attached to a number. Because you cant stay a certain weight forever.

  1. thanks izzy these are all really helpful posts, i am struggling so much with eating more and gaining weight, i have so much anxiety. i feel I'm up against all sorts of barriers, i want to gain weight to get better but seeing my body change and the numbers on the scales is all too much and so i feel stuck and don't know what to do. i just wish i could let go and say goodbye to ed for good
