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!

Recovery progres of the week

Sunday evening and time for recovery progress of the week (or year!! I didnt make this post last weekend, so now its been 2 weeks of 2017!)

Have you reached any of your 2017 goals? Stuck to your resolutions?
Have you found yourself motivated towards recovery?
What has helped you through the tough times? Do you have any rewards for your progresses?
Do you feel proud over your progress, or do you feel that maybe you arent doing so much to reach your goals or make progress?What can you do differently in that case?

2 weeks of the new year.... has anything changed, have you made any changes, or what changes do you want to make?

My progress of the year?
Happiness, less stress, feeling calm, more social, feeling proud of myself and knowing i can only do my best. 
Looking forward to the future, being onfident in myself and working towards my long term goals!!!

  1. The graphic at the end made me cry, but in a good way :')
    I've made some progress not bitting my nails... I still catch myself doing it, especially when I'm bored or stressed!
    I've definitely pushed myself to be around people more. I met a boy who is in 3 of the same classes as I am, so we sit together and it's kind of nice to have someone I can rely on! I'm also going out tonight to celebrate a friend's birthday! And tomorrow I start playing rec volleyball with one of my roommates :) those are all huge accomplishments for me!

    This week I struggled to find recovery motivation, but I pushed through each day and made sure I stuck as close to my meal plan as possible. I'm super crazy bloated all day, but I know that as long as I keep eating the bloat will subside eventually.
    I'm also really happy that I'm on top of all my homework! It's so easy to fall behind when no one is nagging you....but it feels so great to go to class and understand the lecture material.

    Have a great week Izzy!

  2. Not a 'goal' as such but more of a realization, in that I need to re-learn how with determination anything's possible.

  3. I made a conscious new year resolution to end some lingering ED behaviours- and I am happy to say I have practically achieved this with only one or two slip ups! So I am very pleased about that.

  4. One of my 2017 goals was to stop thinking about food and to develop healthy habits but it seems impossible.. I keep gaining weight and my clothes don't fit me. So, I'll stick to not eating carbs and eat anything else as I please.
    I started working as a teacher, so that's a great accomplishment to me.
    I wish my period would come back, because it's stressing me out to live without it but I think I need a huge mind shift and a radical change in my life to allow me to eat comfortably and be happy. I hope it changes, I really want it to.

    At last, I want to be stronger to defeat the voices in my head.

    Good luck everyone!

  5. Just an idea for a Friday post - look back on the week and share what has been your happiest/best moment?
