i'm nicole . . . puggle mother, yoga rebel, and film snob! i blog to raise awareness about eating disorders. my little dog gwendolyn saved my life from 11 years of disordered eating, namely bulimia.
alicia's 'the kind diet' plays an important role in my life after bulimia, namely with respect to realising the need for kindness . . . and understanding the importance of a plant based diet. i loved alicia in clueless (was a HUGE fan in the 90s and shall forever be! haha!), in the aerosmith videos, and now in her role in this beautiful beautiful community!
please check out my blog if you want to read about my life after bulimia (it's not always peachy, so please beware!) . . . and perhaps if you're struggling from an eating disorder, it will help you. or, if you're just interested in hilarious videos and pictures of puggles, you might want to visit, too. :)
I have known one person bulimia and it did not look like it wasw any fun. I can't imagine doing that to myself even though I have had plenty of bad habits. Same thing though, just self destructive behavior. It is almost like you are here to destroy yourself. I have finally gotten my eating habits under control with vegetarian diet seems to help a lot of thing.
I love your blog... even the less peachy parts! I think I am beginning a struggle with bulimia. Well, it's been gradually coming on for a while. But since I separated and filed for divorce last summer, it has been rougher. And it is particularly bad when my kids act out and I eat 'naughty' foods and then throw them up to avoid feeling bad after eating them. And then my throat burns and my digestive tract gurgles... nothing you don't already know I guess. I don't want to take myself down this road!!! But lately it is harder and harder to stick to the 95% raw vegan diet I was on. Don't know why... It's a bit easier for me to eat macro, but I'm trying really hard to detox. Being vegan is second nature now, it has been 3.5 years for me and I was vegetarian before that. But I totally want junk food and martinis every night!!! I don't drink every night, because I'm with my kids and all, but I want to. And I want chocolate cake and ice cream and other junk that I just didn't eat the last few years. Any advice??
@ French Momma, I recognize you big time. I never eat much meat and since 2 months I dont eat meat at all any more and now i'm switching to be vegan. But lately, also because of some circumstances, I only want to eat again and yesterday day noon I drink to much, what I haven't done since the last half year. I know why I mus not do it and i'm punished big time (could not sleep, hyper etc) but I still did it! Dont be to though on yourself and if u feel like it, do it ones, because it will remember you why you dont want to eat bad stuff or drink alcohol etc, because the way your body reacts. I have bulimia since I'am a child and struggling all the time with it, specially in the months Jan and Feb, its dark cold etc. Do things that makes you happy and be sweet to yourself! Have a nice WK
hey nicole! just wanna say: you have a lovely blog. i was just able to read a little, but i am impressed and proud! as an ex-anorexic myself i know leaving an eating-disorder is so hard! but being vegan also helped me a lot! i will follow your blog, cause you are one amazing woman and you and your little dog are two wonderful cuties!!!
Hello everyone! Nicole, I love your blog! I am so glad to see things like this and people responding in positive ways. Like many here, I too struggled with an eating disorder (anorexia in high school). I still worry about weight almost constantly, but having the unconditional love of a pooch def helps! I have two beautiful greyhound girls that are adopted retired racers that I rescued. They keep me sane and stable. Also, the vegan lifestyle helps so much! Eat more, less guilt, yay! One thing I need to start doing more is yoga. I have a dvd, but I am too embarassed to go to a local class because I am so not limber and also very uncoordinated lol. Any tips for a beginner yogi?
