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:

Materialistic happiness

Combined with an inner happiness there was also some materialistic happiness! !

First off I bought some new products I've wanted to try (and 2 protein puddings which I love!!). And so far I've tried both of the bars and I can say, they didn't taste good. They left a nasty aftertaste and not something I want to eat again. I also tried the mulberry/pomegranate energy drink and that was not to my liking at all... usch, i drank 25% and three rhe rest away.  A nasty taste. But i've tried it now anyway and who knows, maybe the mojito is better :) and then the protein puddings I'm saving for the weekend, but I've eaten them before and I love them!!

And then I also got a package.  A Christmas present from my dad (well, he gave me money and I designed the shirts.) 3 tanktops and i choose the wording and placing (I used the site ). I was worried about the size because sometimes they are small in size and sometimes they ate big in size... but I choose small in all of them and they are still a little poofy. So not so tight fighting as I would have liked. But I love the shirts... I love tops with cool text, haha. I can't wait until my next workout so I can wear one of them.... but u want to wear all of them at once, haha. But it depends whether I run or lift during my next workout. ... anyway, it made me super happy to receive the package finally! ! Sometimes all you need is some materialistic happiness. ... of course, happiness comes from the inside and I'm not a materialistic person, but the things I do have and buy make me super happy! !


  1. I love the printed tops Izzy - especially the "running is cheaper than therapy" - hope you get to wear them soon!
    Buying things always makes me happy too. Just getting a wanted book arrive from Amazon cheers me up! Does`nt have to be big or expensive, just geting something I have wanted or liked - like a new colouring book - makes my day!

    1. Thank you :) I love colouring books, so therapeutic and destressing!!
