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:

We think that being confident, being happy, should be as easy as putting on a light switch. But self-love isn’t that easy. Living authentically, free of shame, is more like stumbling toward a motion sensor light in the dark. You have to advance forward, to a target you can’t see, but trust that you’ll ultimately get to. The only thing that will turn that light on is your movement, your action.

My actual goals are to be so successful & independent that I can spoil myself and my family and do what I love and go where I want whenever.

I do not share my sadness because I do not want it compared to yours.

I’m a firm believer that happiness makes people prettier. It’s a noticeable glow.

No single decision you ever made has led in a straight line to where you find yourself now. You peeked down some roads and took a few steps before turning back. You followed some roads that came to a dead end and others that got lost at too many intersections. Ultimately, all roads are connected to all other roads.""

"right now you might be in a situation that you think you won’t survive but six months ago you were in a situation that you didn’t think you’d survive and two years before that you were in a situation you didn’t think you’d survive and the point is you will always surprise yourself and you will always make it through"

"Don’t invalidate people’s struggles because you’ve been through worse. If someone is tired after working for 5 hours and you worked for 7, it doesn’t mean that they’re not allowed to be tired. It doesn’t mean they can’t feel what they’re feeling just because you’ve had it worse."

  1. Hey, Izzy, I was wondering how you overcame your rituals/behaviours? (If you had any?) they're a major part of my disorder, eg. eating with certain cutlery, eating for as long as possible, in certain places at certain times etc. I never went inpatient and all my parents really know about my anorexia was that I lost a lot of weight and they don't understand all the other things that went with it.
    Do you have any advice on how to stop using these rituals to calm my anxiety around eating?
