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:

Its national chocolate day (& wednesday update)

I have to start off this post by saying its national chocolate day today....  So .... go eat some chocolate :):):) hahahah, i mean do what you want.. but why miss an oppertunity like this to eat chocolate on a wednesday to celebrate the chocolate day? :)

After little sleep last night because 1) I was up late finding my book and 2) the ending of the book left me irritated and 3) not doing anything left me restless sl I tossed and turned until I fell asleep sometime after 2am and then up at 5.45am...  usch. But I did wake up anyway and that's the good thing as I thought I would sleep past my alarm.

I got to school and after giving myself a 20 minute pepp talk of "I can do this... I can do this", I felt a little motivated and ready. And that lasted until half way through the class, I. E after 2 hours. Then the tiredness hit and I began thinking about everything  I head learnt. After 20 minutes break and it was just 2 hours left.

My plan was to go to extra maths help afterwards but I had reached that state of mental exhaustion and mental capacity. Hahah. When you have learnt so much new stuff that you know that you can't learn anything more. .. that you just need a break. And doing almost 6 hours of maths in a row... It just didn't feel beneficial so instead I headed home and fell asleep for a few hours!! They say that taking a nap after you learn something new helps you to remember and understand it better? So maybe it works!! I'm going to look over the information again this afternoon and then tomorrow it's time to out all the formulas and such into practise.

For lunch it was roast vegetables, simple, delicious,  nutritious and filling and i also got to try the new pumpkin pie questbar!! A friend and reader sent me a package - a little birthday package - filled with chocolate and questbars. It put a huge smile on my face :) Chocolate and questbars are two favourites of mine and is always a good way to cheer me up!!

(Apparently its national chocolate day so of course i had to eat chocolate, even if i have consumed far too much chocolate recently XD And this one was super delicious!!!)

What was my opinion on the questbar? It was kind of dry, but i am going to try heat up the remaining half and see if it tastes better :)

Have you tried the new flavour? Did you think it was any good?
Also want to mention... when you know you can run 10km and feel fine but taking the stairs in school leaves you breathless.... not so good!! It's a good thing with a few days rest, haha!!

  1. Hi Izzy! I've just started my recovery and therefore also been diagnosed with anorexia. Although i am not dangerously underweight, 45kg to 160 cm, i need to gain weight. I am wondering how I am supposed to eat? Is 2000 kcal a day enough? I have not been able to excerise do to pain in my hips and my low energy level but i walk alot! Approximately 20 000 steps every day. What do you think i should do?

    I love your blog and it has made me see why i should recover and why i want to recover!

    Hope you are well and understand my question!
