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:

Eating disorder recovery motivation

Yes..but it doesn't feel like it right now:

Losing Weight

Recovery is not just a choice. It's choice you make every damn day. Every minute. You fight for it.:
(note... it does get easier to choose healthy and recovery choices)

An eating disorder is a killer-break free and survive, i am worth more, and so are you...:

And look at that the match lit that coal on fire. I'm on a downward spiral and there's no getting out of it.:


  1. I don`t know where you find these quotes from Izzy but they`re great! I could do with them being magnets so I could put them on my fridge door

  2. Hi Izzy
    I had anorexia for over 5 years now and in August I finally decided I would try to recover for the last time. I've been doing pretty well most days but as I'm approaching a healthy weight it's getting harder.
    How do you learn to be comfortable in your body when you are used to it being thin for so long? I hate how I associate thinness with success and beauty and being accepted, even though I know there is no logic to that I still can't shake the feeling of not being good enough anymore.... I keep thinking the answer is to start restricting again because now I have more fat on my body that voice is telling me I'm just being greedy if I continue to eat so much.. do you have any tips on dealing with this? I feel like I had a "honeymoon" period when I started eating more and I felt physically and mentally much brighter but over the last month I have just felt so tired and worn out, unhappy and unmotivated.
    Thank you so much :)

  3. I will be very interested to see Izzys reply to this as this is exactly how I felt when I last tried to recover - I have since had a bit of a relapse. I got so far and then all my desire to stay at normal weight left me and I went back to restricting again. Now I am at a lower weight than I was when I first tried recovery first time around. All my hard work was undone.
    How can I prevent this happening again if I try recovery again?
