Life without Anorexia

My motto is
'Dont let the sadness of your past & the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present'

My life at the moment is completely different to how it once was. I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia and depression as well as struggling with self harm and overexercising. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
And since 2012 i have been declared healthy from my eating disorder.

I have been blogging for 7 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 now blog about recovery, my life, veganism and positivity!

Monday and life update

Somedays you just need to sit on the floor, stare into space and get absaloutly nothing done.... that was pretty much my day today. Or well not really... it was one or two hours of my day anyway. I know it may seem like i am one of the laziest people who does nothing during the days and just watches series, but that is not the case its just that i dont mention all the other things i do during the days. Such as filling in papers, sending letters, university research and documents to fill in, emails answered, picking up packages, doing the dishwasher, taking my dog for a walk, making food etc etc so even if i say that all i did was watch series or sit and stare into space, that is not infact the case... haha. I just thought i should clear that up, especially as i dont want anyone to think "Ohh she can watch series but not answer my comments" (Yes, ive gotten emails wondering this), but i do more in my day than what i write about. Also the fact that i dont want to spend all my time on the internet and staring at screens and i dont have the energy or time to answer all questions, but i do try my best.... so once i have finished writing this post i am going to try to answer your questions and comments (now that i have computer access for a little while :))

So... only a week until university begins, im nervous!!! It also doesnt help that my friends are writing messages such as they want to cry from the workload they have from university, hahah... not so much fun to hear about just before beginning my own studies XD But i know university is tough and means alot of work... its not just sitting and listening and it being a walk in the park. Well not for the majority of people anyway!! But hopefully i can balance things out, i have no other option really.

Anyway, i really dont have anything special to write about apart from the fact that my diet changes are in place since today... well i began yesterday, and i am craving chocolate and bread :( I mean i can still eat them if i want to, but for now i need to make certain changes to help my body eliminate infeciton and inflammation as well as my body having alot of digestion problems (CF related), and well the first two days in a long time where i havent had any stomach ache so i mean its something positive even if all i want right now is certain cravings.....  Though i am not someone who can be so strict with my diet, i .e why i could never go on a restrictive diet because i dont like restricting my diet. I dont like thinking there are certain foods i cant eat, so this isnt anything strict and if i really want something i will eat it. But that is pretty much what i have done the past 6 months and left me with alot of stomach ache and had to cancel alot of plans as i have eaten things and my body hasnt been able to digest them. But enough talk about that, its not necessary on here, its certain changes i am making at the moment for myself and my body and hopefully it will help!!

And to finish this post... .look at these 2 cute dogs..... i want one, hahahah!! So cute and they look so angry, like a constant "resting bitch face"... just like me. They are so cute, according to me anyway. Neither my family or my boyfriend agree with me, but who cares everyone has their own preferances :)

^^Hahahah, accurate representation 


  1. All the best of luck with your course :) X

    One thing I've always felt --everything happens in life for a reason. Everything works out as it is meant to and I believe that you deserve all good things X

  2. Hello izzy! I've been following your blog for years now and have seen such a shift in the energy of your posts and I want you to know you are still awesome and inspiring and beautiful! New chapters are scary but I believe in you ok? Before you know it you will look back on this tougher time and smile because you got through it. Your personality and help for all of us are just fantastic! You've got this I promise! You'll settle in soon enough and go with the flow. I believe in you ok?

  3. What is the term schedule in Sweden? Here in England the new school year begins in September and ends in July. If you are only just starting next week your schedule is different?
    Good luck anyway for next week - I`m sure you`ll do just fine once the strangeness wears off. Just think of all the new opportunities open to you!
    I`ve been having to make changes to my diet too. Theres certain foods I seem to not to be able to tolerate and its hard to cut them out even though they cause you pain, but its got to be better than suffering. I`m thinking of having a food intolerance test done because I seem to be getting reactions to foods that before my ed I was ok with, so its really to see if theres a real intolerance going on or whether its just my stomach playing up in recovery. be interesting to find out.

  4. Any advice on how to tell your significant other about your eating disorder? I feel like he knows something is going on, or at least suspects something, but I'm not totally sure how to talk to him about it. How did you tell your boyfriend?
