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:

One behaviour leads to the next

Step off that scale. Go eat your dinner. Get away from the mirror. Put the diet pills down. Leave the bathroom. Get off the treadmill.
One behavior leads to another and next thing you know, you’re in a full-blown relapse. Remember that relapsing means
  • Having to go through weight restoration (again)
  • Wasting precious time that you’re never getting back 
  • Being miserable and sad and angry and confused all at the same time
  • Having to go (back) to treatment 
  • Causing irreversible damage to your health
  • Losing your friends’ and family’s trust
  • Isolating yourself and feeling alone 
  • Having to start this whole recovery process all over again (which will include uncomfortable bloating, stomach pains, rigid meal plans, endless tears, inner battles, and a hell of a lot more therapy)
And if all else fails you might actually 
  • Die
Please keep that in mind. It’s not “just one meal” or “just one purge,” it’s making the decision to choose between living your life or surrendering it to your eating disorder. 
So step off the scale. 


  1. Thanks again for this perfectly timed post. I am struggling at the moment and cutting corners on my prescribed eating plan. Not sure if I have the strength to stop cutting them yet, but I am working on it and reminders like this give me help x

    1. I am sorry that you are struggling but remember that your meal plan is going to help you and you need to follow it. You can't cut corners or try to eat less,you need to eat the amount your body needs. It's tough but each day try to eat what your meal plan says, it will get easier :)

    2. thank you for replying, you are an inspiration and I really hope you are feeling good x

  2. Hope you are looking after yourself too, Izzy.
    I know you're not posting so much on your own struggles just now, while you fight them, but please don't think that we stop caring just because nothing is said!
