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:

Change can be made whenever

Good morning :)

It feels like many people expect January 1st to be some sort of special and revolutionary day. The day everything changes and is different but that isn't always the case. You still wake up with the same problems and maybe the same mindset. Habits and behaviours aren't just gone because it's a new year though if you stick to your goal of change maybe by next year those habits and behaviors will be gone.

Change doesn't just happen because you want it to. But because you make it happen. You have a goal and even if you have wins and failures you keep trying to reach that goal.

But I just wanted to say that even if today doesn't go as planned, you still resorted to certain behaviours then know that you can change that now... don't wait for tomorrow. If you skipped lunch then eat extra for dinner. If you worked out today but knew you shouldn't then make sure to rest tomorrow. If you binged or purged then try to eat a normal portion of food and keep it down for your next meal, not restricting or compensating.

Even if today doesn't go as planned you still have tomorrow.  Just focus on taking one step forward each day. Do one thing each day that brings you closer to your goal. It will be worth it, a year from now you might look back and see how much you have changed,  whether it's for the good or the bad. ... that's up to the choices you make.

But focus on one day at a time. Small goals or long term goals. It's a process and takes time no matter what goal you have!!!

I wish you all a great day and a great year :)

  1. thanks so much for this post Izzy, was much needed today..last night felt super positive and ready to take on the world for the 1st day of the new year. of course, it was never going to turn out quite as well I had hoped, and tonight I was beginning to feel disheartened and angry with myself for the "slip ups" I made today, despite last night's resolutions to "never again give in to my eating disorder" . But tomorrow is a new day I suppose. Thank you Izzy xxx
