Jasmine George’s story
HCF: What made you decide you needed to change your life?
“My journey began in 2012 after the birth of 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.”
HCF: 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 plant-based 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.”
HCF: What motivates you to keep on this path?
“My almost 3-year-old son and how I feel better each day I continue to follow this path.”
HCF: What are you most proud of going through this journey?
“That I have overcome a lot throughout my two-year journey whilst being a solo mama and a full-time student”
HCF: What futures goals do you have?
“I plan to finish my Commerce degree, compete in a show with my fellow vegan teammates (this coming June) and to also always improve my body from the previous year(s) whilst raising my son to be a badass vegan!”
HCF: If you could share any advice or words of encouragement what would they be?
“At times it’s not easy; it is not all plain sailing. There will be ups and downs 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 realize it really does take time. But it is worth it.”
