Update

I haven't posted in ages and thought I would explain a little more about my personal issues. I would like to re-start posting on my blog but feel that I need to be honest about what has been going on.

Basically, I have been diagnosed with an Eating Disorder. I have struggled with disordered eating on and off for the past 7 years. I don't think that I wanted to admit that I had a problem but things became particularly bad towards the end of the summer of last year and when I came away to university in October. I stopped posting on my blog because there was nothing interesting about the food that I was eating and I stopped enjoying food. I have recently seen a doctor and am now receiving treatment. I am determined to get to a place where I can eat healthily and enjoy food again.

I want to start posting again as I think it might help me in this journey. I know that my meals have never seemed especially exciting but I did used to like eating them!

Anyway sorry for waffling on!

It's great that you've accepted that you have an eating disorder and are seeking help for it. University is often a catalyst for borderline eating disorders to become full blown. It's a tough journey back to health, but you'll get there and you'll be stronger than you were before. The good thing about being vegan is that the majority of delicious food we eat is healthy as well as tastey. All the best with learning to love your body and becoming an empowered woman. It's great when you get there :) x
