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:

Afternoon snack

When it comes go studying it is so important to fuel yiur body and mind right. Many think that just because they are sitting down whole studying that they shouldn't eat or shouldn't eat enough, but the brain uses so much energy when studying. That tiredness you feel after studying is 1) because of all the new information and 2) your brain has worked so hard. It is important for your brain and body to get the right energy so that you can concentrate and study your best :) for me personally I can't study if I am hungry, then my stomach just takes control and til I'm satisfied I'm not so good at taking in new information, haha. So today's after study snack (only a few hours stuydy after school today) was some berries, passion fruit and dates with peanut butter! ! And my favourite True :) a super delicious snack (though that wasn't all I ate, yoghurt wuth muslie and some carrot bread as well :) )

So remember to fuel your body and mind properly :) what are you eating as a snack today? :)


  1. I love peanutbutter and salted nuts stuffed dates and coffee on the side - perfect combination.

  2. Thank you so much for this post! I have a really hard time getting myself to eat while studying and not being physically active, because I feel like I don't need much food and end up eating fruit and veggies instead of something more filling! I'm in the middle of a relapse so I'm really scared to eat more carbs and fats (I'm not underweight, though)

  3. I would definitely relate to the Anonymous above. Izzy, please, could you make a post about eating while studying and attach this to the subject of activity. Many recovering struggle with seeing studying as being lazy, when in fact it is the opposite - like you've said the brain consumes so much energy! And need LOADS of calories!

  4. My study snacks today-- fruit/ berries with Greek yogurt, cereal bars and chocolate :) I cannot concentrate without eating and keeping drinking water (or fruit tea).
