My name is Betty, I’m currently 19, in college/uni.
I created this blog because I have to trying to “be healthy” and “lose weight” for several years now. My highest weight was about 130 pounds, maybe more, but I can’t remember. This isn’t a lot, I realize, but to me, it was. Almost all of my friends when I was younger were thinner than I was. That wasn’t a good feeling, especially since I was the one who loved to eat candy and meat.
All those years I tried to be healthy & to lose weight, didn’t work out so well. I’d lose a few pounds, but would eventually gain it back. It was a yo-yo through being better and going back to where I started.
Sometime near the end of 2011, I found the film “Forks over Knives”, which talked about the benefits of living a vegan lifestyle. Then I found a bunch of animal slaughter videos, and ended up watching another film called “Earthlings”.
After those videos and films was when I decided to start living a vegetarian lifestyle and to start this tumblr blog (Nov 2011). This has been, by far, the most weight I’ve ever lost, and now the most happiest I’ve ever been about my body.
I am now (July 2012) trying to begin a vegan lifestyle. I slowly cut out all animal products from my diet. I do not eat meat, fish, eggs, dairy, and honey, nor do I wear animals products (with the exception of a few things in my closet I am trying to replace at the moment.
