For the most part we tend to use Instagram to post pretty pictures and cute captions. I am guilty of this.
So I wanted to talk about something that I don’t really talk about to many people and certainly not strangers, but here it goes.
I am vegan, I think it’s pretty obvious, and most of you probably know this. What isn’t so obvious however is my unhealthy relationship with food. In recent months I have experienced anxiety like never before. What I mean by that, is that whenever I felt sad in the past I would over eat. Now, that is no longer the case, my anxiety makes me sick, literally. This has resulted in me not being hungry for long periods of time, skipping meals and sometimes not eating at all (because I do not feel hungry). When I do eat I seem to gravitate to poor nutritional value foods like instant noodles. I am very aware that these habits I’ve developed are unhealthy for my body and mind, but I do it anyways. This ‘lifestyle’ has led to low energy levels, getting ill easily and often and loosing weight as well as the gains I was finally making at the gym. Life is far from perfect and I know that photos can often be misleading. But I’m also taking the time to work on myself and creating a healthy relationship with food is now a priority for me. I am making it my mission to be more open on here with everyone that chooses to follow me, in the hopes that those who are going through something similar do not feel alone, and know it’s okay to not be okay but it will absolute get better x - 9 hours ago
