130 Lbs To Lose.
Hi. I am 5' 9" and 295 lbs. I am going to lose 130 lbs before the end of the year. That gives me about 9 months to achieve this goal. I've been flirting with so many diets that my head is off wandering around looking for a vacation. I've come across so many regimented ideas, supplements, and regiments that I thought, "Ugh, I'll just stay fat." I think I finally know how I'm going to tackle this issue. See weight has so many factors to it that it's just not fair. It's the sugar that has made it's way into everything we eat to the easy processed chemically taste induced garbage we consume everyday.
I'm going to tackle my weight by doing what feels right to me and that is becoming vegan. I've flirted with the idea before and found it very yummy and easy on my body but then gave into the peer pressures from my family. This year I've realized that it's my body and my life. I wouldn't let someone pressure me about what was good for my children so why would it be okay about my body. I think its horrible that we are made to believe that losing weight is about sacrifice and we feel guilty for falling prey to the human condition.
I picked up Alicia Silverstone's The Kind Diet. It's really good so far.
