jasmine George’s story
what made you decide you needed to change your life?
My journey began in 2012 after the birth my son. I suffered postnatal depression and had major body issues. It wasn’t just the appearance side, it was also how tired I felt; my body ached and I felt weak. I just did not feel like a person of my age should be feeling.
what steps did you take to improve your life?
I turned to exercise to not only get me out of the house but to rebuild my body so that daily movements were not so challenging. I began to research and follow plantbased organic living . . . and that was the start of my healthy plant based eating and when I really noticed my body changing and I began to feel really happy.
what motivates you keep on this path?
My almost 3 year old son and how I feel better each day I continue to follow this path.
what are you most proud of going thru this journey?
That I have overcome a lot throughout my two year journey whilst being a solo mama and a fulltime student
what futures goals do you have ?
I plan to finish my Commerce degree, compete in a show with my fellow vegan team mates (this coming june) and to also always improve my body from the previous year(s) whilst raising my son to be a bad ass vegan!
if you could share any advice or words of encourgement what would they be?
At times it’s not easy; it is not all plain sailing. There will be ups and down along the way, however life’s unexpected hiccups help you grow and make you stronger. I want to share with people that this took two years of healing. I used to get caught up on not getting the results I wanted in a few months – and now I realise it really does take time. But it is worth it.
