I kind of agree with the above comment, but I do actually like the video and I think it'll help her stay grounded in a more positive outlook. I just hope for the best. Anyway, at first I thought 'oh, I'm tired of these kinds of videos' but then when I watched it I was quite happy with what I saw. The editing was really good and cute too. So I don't believe that she's better because as she said, that takes months and years, but I think she's finally on the right track. I expect slip ups just like before when she was posting happy positive stuff and then suicidal stuff after gaining a bit of weight, but that's OK. She will learn in time. And the main thing is that this is a positive influence and message for younger and more impressionable viewers. I think the message and the tips she gave are actually useful for others. What I don't agree with in these terms is her use of the word 'fat' because, well, I think she equates having fat with being fat which is not the case. She is really really far from being anywhere near fat. And also it is normal to carry a bit of fat because we are not designed to just be skin and bones. I hope that she comes to realise this.
Edit: sandy11, see facon, chuna and sheese, lol. But actually I don't think it really matters if one thing is called chicken steak, tuna steak, beef steak, or veggie steak. Pork sausage, chicken sausage, or tofu sausage. It's just a type of food. On to my actual point... I don't know why everyone is assuming she has gone vegan in order to lose weight. There's a lot more to it than that, it's not just another diet kind of thing. Plus, she hasn't really gone vegan, she's just trying it for a month, don't overreact like it's the worst thing ever and she's gonna die. P. S. I personally gained a lot of weight after going vegan initially. I have a history of eating disorders but I didn't go vegan for weight loss at all.
That Daily Mail article made me feel so desperately sad for her for some reason, even though I already knew this stuff from her video. I guess a newspaper article makes it feel more frighteningly real, I don't know why. I assume that she was interviewed for this but I wonder why she did it (to raise awareness?) and if she will mention it in the near future. I think it's very brave to let the general public into your life like that, including rather intimate photos.
I love this photo and the outfit, just had to say it. I wonder who has been telling her not to wear things like this though, when she's been wearing them for several years without issue from those around her lol. It seems to be her new things to be super positive in a badass kind of way. Again, just saying. I do like to see her happy.
BTW, I don't like double posting so I was waiting for someone else to bring this here, but no-one seems to be doing so, lol. She makes so many explanatory posts excusing other posts it can get annoyingly confusing, but at least we can probably say that they're just fine as a couple.
I don't really get it anyway. He didn't say she can't wear it at all, and in fact said she can wear it to see her friends. She has plenty of opportunities to dress up all cute with her new friends if she wants to, there's nothing stopping her. It seems a bit childish not only to post what she did about Manaki but also to not respect his opinions at all. He has supported her through way bigger things than this after all, so it is particularly childishly disrespectful and actually bratty, in the face of what he's been through for her. If my partner lied to me for two years about such a major thing as weight loss surgery and then complained to thousands of followers about me having opinions as if I'm some dictator, my partner would get no 'sorry' under their post from me. I hate to say it but I really don't like this side of Venus.
Honestly I'm shocked and sad that she didn't tell Manaki about the weight loss surgery and didn't listen to him when he said he didn't want her to do it. But I'm also really happy that she has learned so much from the experience and is more open. Now her video about being more honest with us makes a lot more sense, it's just the context was a long time coming. I hope she continues to get better and can put all this behind her.
Ah, that was such a sweet video. I mean, I would feel awkward to see a video like that about myself, but I would assume that they're both OK with it. I saw on Amber's Instagram that Venus had pledged to help buy a wheelchair, but I didn't know they were so close.
