Its been 9 months living the weekday veg lifestyle, and I’ve lost over 60lbs! Consistently 2-3 pounds a week- since March 2013!
Recently, I’ve indulged in too many carbs, and been too lazy to cook- and definitely gained 3-5lbs (so if you’ve strayed from healthy- it’s ok- i do too!). Strangely, even though it was only a few pounds, my clothing fit weirdly, I didn’t feel comfortable, and I swear my face just didn’t look right!
What was different from the past, is that I didn’t ignore the gain, instead I immediately made the right changes to my ‘creeping in’ old habits- portion control and veggies veggies veggies! One week later- the lbs are gone, and the scale is going back in the right direction…DOWN!
I got a question about sagging skin- and no, I don’t have any. HOWEVER- I do have stretch marks (and no kid to show for it- just lots of past burgers). I have NOT put out a single pic of my bare skin, or my ‘sports bra and shorts’ before picture (from March 1, 2013- it’s unbelievable how big I was)…but, I’ll share this pic here…stretch marks and all…little steps, right?! And hopefully, some of you (especially the young) will be motivated to get healthy- BEFORE you permanently damage your body (inside AND out!).
