A bit about me.
I began dancing at the age of 3. I had a healthy relationship with food until I was 6. I was vegetarian by age 11, and have been between vegetarian - vegan ever since.
By age 11, I was becoming severely anorexic.
I retired from Classical Ballet from a hospital bed. The 4th time I had ended up there with a feeding tube. A Dr's ultimatum. continue and die or eat and live. So, I figured it out.
So, between my Eating dis-orders - Extreme Exercise - Anxiety - etc...
I have tried my best to keep an even keel.
When my Mother passed away 5+ years ago I unraveled. I went to my Dr and told her I needed some help. She prescribed an anti-anxiety med. It helped me get thru the toughest part, but I knew that the answers were not medication. I needed to get myself together, so I have been doing a lot of self work.
During that time I gained weight from the meds, so an old demon reared its ugly head. I began taking diet pills.
I felt great! Looked great! But it was again, Not a lasting solution. And needless to say a real unhealthy path.
About 2+ years ago I started watching Freelee on YouTube. She spoke with knowledge and passion, looked strong healthy and fit.
The personal work has taken time. I will be completely anxiety med free by the first of 2015 and as far as the diet pills I am 3 months off them. I am nervous but looking forward to being strong and clean.
So, on the path...
I have been doing pretty well on HCRV.
I have tried the Raw Til-4.
I do best with the HCRV.
Doing my best everyday to be full of gratitude and health.
I realize the amount of betrayal I have committed to my Body will take time to heal and this is a journey. I look forward to learning and sharing it here in a constructive positive way.
