Hi. So about a year ago I put on thirty pounds. I was struggling with different diets until I decided that I want to be a vegan. I did my research, and I fell in love with the idea of knowing that everything that I put into my mouth is wholesome and good for me. Thus, in addition to cutting out animal products, I also cut out any processed sugar and flour.
So, for 4 months now I've been vegan and I lost about 15 pounds. I love being a vegan. Now that I am used to it, I can go to restaurants and find something on the menu that I can turn vegan. Also, I don't really count my calories because I mainly just focus on being healthy.
However, once I lost the 15 pounds I started to get greedy. I wanted to lose more and more. So I tried limiting my calories. This was a bad idea. My mind started playing tricks on me-- I started to rebel, going way over my alloted calorie limit and even eating processed sugar.
So now, I have decided that I must get back into my mindset of just eating for nutrients and not worrying about the weight or my calorie intake too much. Thats why I have now decided that I am not going to weigh myself for four months. I don't want to place pressure on myself to lose weight. I am also going to try not to inspect my body too much. I am a healthy weight right now and I do want to lose the next 15 pounds, but more importantly I want to be happy and healthy.
