Spiritual vegan dating

My journey to health is just that – a journey – and each year has its ups and downs and different challenges along the way.One thing I do know for sure is that I’m at a much better place than I used to be.

I was juggling being a full-time Master’s student, writing a thesis, part-time teaching assistant, working at a new FT research job, and planning my wedding.

I defended my thesis at the end of July 2008 and we got married just one month later- all while working a stressful new position.

I still struggle with a negative mindset at times, but I’m better at dismissing those thoughts and sticking on this healthy & happier path.

Here are some pictures that document my journey over the past 10 years: My weight was steady around 125 pounds.

I dropped more weight and was really struggling on the inside.

However, it ended on a great note- we got engaged in December 2007 in Mexico.

:) I had gained about 20-25 pounds since 1st year university. My eating disorder, something I had been struggling with since 12 years old, surfaced a lot in 1st and second year university. ;) I also graduated university with an undergrad degree in social psychology.

Exam stress, living in a dorm, and new social opportunities led to late-night binges, alcohol, and unhealthy cafeteria food. I lost a bit of weight, but I was still struggling and going up and down on the scale. We moved to Toronto because I got accepted into graduate school for psychology.

I met Eric, my highschool sweetheart, when I moved to Ontario from New Brunswick with my mom.

We started dating just a month after I began at my new school.

It’s a common misconception that you have to be deathly thin to have an eating disorder.
