Hi, I am a 22 year old female. I went vegetarian at 13, and (nearly) vegan at about 20-21 (I had been eating vegan foods and rice milk, possibly, before that). I did it all predominantly for the animals. Even though I’m vegan (and I do eat things like vegetables, fruits and, sometimes, beans), I also have a weight issue. I’m on Olanzapine (for anxiety), which can turn off the part of your brain that tells you when you’re full. I’m also on Pregablin (also for anxiety), which can also cause weight gain. I often eat in between meals, even though I do set promises not to. I eat quite a bit of chocolate, sweets and cake (the one that I eat the most of out of those is chocolate). I have cravings and I want fancy chocolate. Exercise-wise, I go on walks (not every day, as much as I would like to), I have just started doing a yoga work-out following a video on YouTube, I occasionally walk around with my iPod on and I go swimming (when on holiday mainly. I also used to go swimming with my support group, I am on the Autistic Spectrum).
