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!

If you have any questions leave them in the comment section as i am much quicker at answering there, otherwise you can always send an email:

18 things i want to do this summer

Have my first swim in the water for this summer season. I am not much of a water person and 99% of the time dont go into the water to swim/bathe, but it feels like i have to atleast go waist deep into the water each summer, hahah.

I want to eat at Hälsocafet (You can see their food HERE)  I live rather close so it isnt distance stopping me, i just havent gone there, hahah. But when i do go there i want to order many different things because it all looks so good!

I want to eat at the cafe Good store and try their mylkshakes!

I want to go to a strawberry farm (?) and pick strawberries.

Pick fresh blueberries when they begin to grow.

I want to go on a roadtrip somewhere.

I want to sit at a fancy bar and drink cocktails outside with my friends.

I want to get up and watch the sunrise one morning.

I want to hike up a mountain.

I want to have a picnic somewhere!

I want to go exploring somewhere new whether its a new part of Stockholm, another city or just a new route in the forest i live by!

I want to make my own home made sushi.

I want to start and finish reading a book this summer... though this feels like a little optimistic with my lack of time at the moment, haha.

I want to spend a week in a summer cottage with good weather the whole week, where i can just go for runs and walks, be with my family, lie on the beach, eat good food and have a "summer get away". ( This is a goal, but i dont think it will happen this year)

I want to watch a movie during the outside cinema with my friends!

I want to have a weekend away with my friends at a summer cottage.

I want to travel away somewhere for just a few days!

I want to go to a spa and get a massage and just relax in warm pools and the spa atmosphere!


  1. Your goals for summer sound great! We have outdoor cinemas here occasionally - weather permitting - and they are always popular. You either sit out and have a picnic or watch the film as a drive in.
    The restaurant food you want to visit looks awesome, you should definitely go if you get the chance :)
    Hope your dreams for summer come true for you :)

  2. Hi Izzy - can I ask you how you cope with living with a long term health problem? ie in your case your CF or your stomach pains for example? What effect does it have day to day in general and how does it effect your relationship with others when you are sick? Are people sympathetic and understanding or do they just don`t "get it"?
    I ask because I need some advice. I have been ill so much just recently and I know people around me are getting fed up with me. Even to the extent of getting nasty comments about how I look or feel.Some evenings my partner will go the whole time not even bothering to talk to me because I am feeling ill again.
    I just wondered how you cope.
    If this is too personal a question I`ll understand.

  3. Sounds like your going to have a busy summer!
    I hope you have fun :)
