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!

Branching out with blogging and inspiring others.

As you may have noticed with my blog the past while it isnt just about eating disorders anymore, but instead it has branched out to other things as well, which i love! I know that pretty much all of my readers are suffering/have suffered with an eating disorder, so you are here to read my blog and get advice and help to recover from an eating disorder. And i want to try my best to do that - answer your questions, give advice and just try to inspire and motivate you to want to choose recovery. To inspire you to want to be healthy and free and to know that weight gain isnt the end of the world, and that you wont be "nothing" without your eating disorder, but most of all.... that life and happiness is possible after an eating disorder!

But recently there are other things in my life which i want to blog about as well. Blog about depression and depression recovery (becuase it is one thing to be depressed due to an eating disorder/malnutrition, and another thing to have "everything" in life and have a good life but still be depressed... its not the same type of depression according to me), but also veganism, sustainaibility and just life in general.

I love helping people and love knowing i make a difference in the world or within people. That brings me so much joy... so hearing that i have inspired people to want to eat more vegan meals or actually give veganism a go makes me SO happy... knowing i have made a difference. But also if i can blog about things like sustainability, things that everyone can do in their life to make a difference to the planet (of course i am not perfect, i leave the water running sometimes, i leave the fridge door open a little too long sometimes, and i still buy food with palmoil... so i am no angel, but i try my best and that is the important thing!).
    I want to branch out and inspire you in different ways. Inspire you to want to be healthy, want to be happy and to never give up no matter what you are struggling with. Want to inspire you to find balance and even inspire people to enjoy exercise. So many people force themselves to exercise and hate it, but that SHOULDNT be the case... .exercise should be fun, it should give you endorphines and you should feel happy!! And also inspire you to eat balance and healthy for YOU... what is healthy for one person might not be healthy for the other, so i want YOU to find YOUR OWN healhy diet and listen to your own body to know what is best for you :)

Life is about more than just calories, food, weight, execise, body image.... so i think that by blogging about other things or even blogging about my days/life can show you that there is more to life than worrying about your stomach or your bloating stomach. Get you focusing on other things in life and also get you inspired to be healthy!

My blog will just be a mix of things which i think are important to blog about. Eating disorders and help and advice, about mental illness, self esteem and confidence, body image dysmorphia, veganism, sustainability, depression and depression help, positivity, my life, being scared of the future, school motivation, life motivation etc etc  And then some vlogs and videos here and there :)

I like the mix and i am learning to post for my own sake and not just for the sake of blogging. I should enjoy blogging and not worry so much about whether it will be liked ornot, but blog when i have something to share!


  1. I actually think that your blog is amazing. Your honesty is the best thing about it. And I believe that always writing posts about recovery can be a little boring so your personal posts are entertaining :)

  2. YAya!! Best decision ever!! I want to read more about your daily life and your thoughts right now :D

  3. I absolutely love this new tendency of yours ;) It's really awesome to see what you've achieved so far and of course it feels better/ more natural for you right now to blog about what's going on in your life atm!! I mean i can relate as well - when you're less occupied by your ED thoughts you get more and more interested in other things and (well for me at least) it even starts to get hard sometimes to think back and remember how it all exactly felt like and why you did or didn't do certain things.. If you know what i mean :)
    So, well, i think it's great what you're doing and personally i am really looking forward a lot to more posts about your experiences with depression recovery.

  4. I'm so excited for your content! I really enjoy reading your blog and I always feel better and inspired by what you write and can really relate to your stuff on eating disorders and depression. It's a great idea to broaden your content - you're so right, reading about other topics can totally help forget about ED and it's important for you to talk about things you think are important! Can't wait!!



  5. Brilliant ideas for your blog, Izzy - you should write about things that are relevant in your life NOW rather than dwell on what was several years ago, after all you have moved on from all that and its only natural that you want to cover different things. I`m really excited to see the new content and have noticed how you have changed things lately.
    Good move and I`m all for it:) Have fun blogging - don`t worry about whether people will like it or not (its their choice to read it or not) and enjoy what you write!
    Hope you have a good week and uni goes well for you :)

  6. I've been reading yoyr blog every day for 3 years now and though it has changed a lot during those years I still enjoy reading your posts - somehow it doesn't seem to matter what you write about since no matter the topic you are so dedicated and that is what makes your blog so inspirering! :)

  7. I have found a really good vegan website, packed full of easy to use information. Its at It makes interesting browsing! So if you want to explore veganism further take a look.
    Izzy - it even has a section about being vegan whilst at university!
