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!

Ed recovery problems

When your body uses all of its energy to repair your organs that it doesn’t have enough to keep you awake


  1. Brilliant, just spot on.

  2. Hey Izzy! Thank you for being soo inspirational. We are the same age but I look up to you anyways :)

    I have two questions I don't think you have broughten up, which probably also would be interesting for others to hear your point of view. (I'm so sorry for my bad english btw)

    1. I'm now moving to my own home where I live by myself from the treatmentcenter and I keep wondering how I will do with cooking. Here it's just served and for me to eat. But now I have to do the foodstoreshooping, the cooking and planing and everything and I just don't know how to do it right.

    Like should I plan the week what I should buy and cook or is that disorderd? If I don't do this i'm afraid all my days will go spending worrying and planing what to eat. But if I already have a weekplan I know and might not think and plan as much since it's already planned. And what should I do when I plan, should I plan for it to be the most "scary" or what I think I crave or what's healthy? This is so confusing for me honestly... Can I eat the same meal to lunch and dinner and more in one day a week. How much varity does it have to be you think for it to be normal? What is a good weekly plan you think?

    Should I also plan my snacks and breakfasts? Because I have a mealplan but with diffrent options on it and I'm thinking to much about what's the "right choise" of afraidness of regreting later what I choosed. I try to vary but it gives anxiety that I have so many options. I'm thinking if it's already plan from my side I don't have stand there and think so much and just do what I planned and stick to it.

    2. I have now reached a weight in the healthy-rage bmi. But I keep gaining on my mealplan. My treater says it will evens out on this with time but it's like between 2500-3000 calories and I keep gaining on it which make me think it's to high for me. I'm still not allowed to work out and i'm very quiet daily. Should I reduce my mealplan to a more normal amount (but still healthy of course) so my weight finally evens out? I don't wanna keep gaining and gaining but I don't think my weight will evens out on this amount of calories when i'm this quiet...

    Thank you so much again :)
