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!

Friday 18th March

Friday and it feels like spring is just around the corner. Plus degrees and sunshine and a motivation to be outside! However i have spent most of my day inside. Feeling tired and both mentally and physically "Out of it". Hard to explain, but it is like i am not fully present.... strange to try to describe.

There is a lack of concentration and focus today and i am fighting my way through one powerpoint (though its more than 60 slides... so understandable that it takes some time!) and after that i am going to put my studying aside for the day as i am not going to learn so much with my lack of focus!

My focus and concentration may be at 0%, but my hunger is making up for it by being at 200%. Or maybe its boredom hunger as well, but its like i have had 200 different cravings hit me and so many different types of cravings. But my lunch was amazing anyway!! I ate it far too quickly, infact i dont think i have ever eaten lunch so quickly in my life.... like one second the food was there and the next it was gone. XD

This evening i am going out with my friends and i am looking forward to it. A chance for me to dress up and wear heels, and also meet my friends again!! I dont often go out on Fridays or the weekend, but today i am looking forward to it :) I am going to bring my camera with me and ill see if i get any good pictures - as it is an ice bar, so i think we will get capes and gloves as it will be minus degrees in there!! (I am pretty sure we will freeze, so not sure how long we will be there!!).

Anyway, for now... i am going to work through the last 20 slides and then rest up!!

Below... yesterdays Taco dinner which tasted amazing!!!


  1. Hi Izzy, I just wanted to let you know that today I've been feeling exactly the same way! Lack of focus/motivation and constant hunger and cravings :D In my case it's probably because I've been pushing myself too hard in the past couple of days so I think it's my body trying to make me rest. So I listened to my body and gave up exercise and ate more for today and I just hope my body knows what it's doing (I have some lingering ED issues and tend to ignore my hunger and tiredness) :D

  2. Are you living back with your parents again? (I see daisy in the pic) also, a while ago you said you read up sugar addiction as part of your studies. I'm interested in knowing what you learned and took away from it and what you recommend when it comes to sugar.
