Most of my life, I’ve been relatively weight conscious. In my late teen years I spent a lot of time working out every night before bed, and tried hard to eat healthy – even switching to a vegetarian lifestyle.
Now I’m in my late 20’s, vegan, with three kids and gaining weight. I stopped being health conscious when my family fell apart. Convenience became the norm, and then my kids Dad stopped feeding them healthy and they were no longer interested in healthful options.
I’m currently 155 lbs, at 5’5 and about 38.5 inches around the largest part of my waist/stomach. I have noticed new stretch marks appearing on my chest and some cellulite coming back around my thighs. Yesterday at work, a man and his wife asked me if I am expecting. I wanted to cry and never eat again.
So I am vowing to get my act together and toughen up. Right as soon as I buy groceries…
I’m putting this out into the world for accountability purposes. My hope is to stick to something between the McDougall diet and Raw Till Four.
(Information for both can be found below.)
Let’s do this.
I will also be using CRON-O-METER to keep track of my progress, nutrients and calories.
