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:

Back to reality

Good morning!

At the moment it feels very much like summer in Sweden and as I have been away on island and haven't had any school it feels like it's summer and like I have no more school. .. but that's not the case. Instead I woke up this morning and realised it's Monday and I have a test in 3 days as well as other school work to prepare for. I had my few days break which was necessary though if anything it's made me a little less motivated to work.... as i don't want to just lock myself in a library to study and I can't seem to study outside. Anyway...  the plan today is to head home to my own apartment and get some study done!

Before I end this post I thought I would post a few photos from the island... as i haven't done so much so not point making a post just about that. My step dad has his own boat so first we travel to the "bigger island" where my "step grandad" lives and then during the days we travel out with the boat to smaller islands which become are our sort of private island, haha! I'm actually a little scared of being on boats and water so I don't like getting on or off the boat but I've gotten a bit better at it this time round anyway, I'm pretty sure I panicked alot last year ^-^ otherwise... I'm sunburnt like usual, not good at all. But it's hard to avoid the sun when you are on an island with the sun blaring down on you, but at least I'll have a few days away from the sun now! Below are a few photos. .. and also my food when I got home!! I've had to eat what I could without getting stomach pain these past few days and it's been different eating times and such but I've made rhe best of it, but it felt pretty good to come home and just eat a filling and delicious meal!  I.e salad (I ate 300g of salad!!), a mini avocado, baked sweet potato and 2 types of potatoe & tomatoes sauce & 2 brocolli and quinoa burgers (soo good.  They ate store bought but I'm going to load up on them as they are so good!)

I can't say I'm ready for this week or to go back to reality but soon it's summer for real, only a few weeks to go! :)


  1. Hello Izzy! Is that cheese on your plate with the corn, salad and tuna? Also what is that saucey-thing with corn? They look good, I would try them! :) Have a nice day! Victoria

    1. It's halloumi;) usually you grill it but we couldn't so I ate it just as it was. And the sauce is a fish with fish pieces (cod or something I think)

  2. Ohh it's awful to be sunburnt. Don't you use sun lotion? O.o

    1. I did. But it was only spf 30 and I spent a little too much time in the sun, so I only have myself to blame.

  3. The photos look great - it looks a lovely place to be.
    I`m with you on the sun burn thing - I burn so easily and I never tan.
    It may be hard coming back to the realities of everyday life again but you have your memories of the weekend to cherish - and of course summer is on its way:)
    Hope you have a good week!

    1. It seems to be an irish/English thing to burn first, haha! I hope you have a good week and manage to stick to your meal plan :)

  4. OMG You look so skinny

    1. I don't really take this as a good thing... but I'm a healthy weight and a healthy mind.
