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:

Positives of the day

To move on from the previous negative post, I thought i would make this a positive one with some positives of the day!!

Fresh figs = my latest addiction. They are soo good and so much better than dried figs!

My snacks while spending several hours infront of the computer, until my eyes started to hurt from staring at the computer a little too long!

A short gym session. Very short and mostly stretching, but i love just being there!

My family are going food shopping today = lots of food at home!!

The evening autumn sun. Even if it is freezing at the moment, its nice to take some moments while the sun is shining and just get some fresh air and vitamin D. And take the dog for a walk at the same time = triple win!

Newly washed hair!! Though the whole drying process is less fun XD

Buying lipbalm XD My lips are super dry and cracked, so lipbalm is like a miracle!

And lastly... finding this online. Hahahaha. WHy do i feel so personally attacked? (Maybe because i have like 3 out of the 5 options. Though i am surprised that the neck wasnt one of the options as that is a very tupical "girl" tattoo!) But seriously... its hard to be original with tattoos now a days.
And that wasnt my aim with my tattoos. I choose them because i like them and because they have a meaning and where i placed them are good places according to me. I.e i can hide them when necessary. But of course i guess unconscioulsy you get a little affected by trends and society etc I mean getting a skull or naked woman tattooed on my body isnt exactly a goal of mine, haha.

If you have any positives about today, share them!!


  1. When I read your answer...I had a question about not being able to eat a lot in the evening...and just addad another question...
    I am also happy to feel sometimes not alone, that somebody is "with me", really cares, takes time...thank you ,Izzy!
