Hell my name is Amanda and I have been yo-yo dieting/starving myself for years. Dealing with Chronic Acid Reflux, Obesity, Depression, Anxiety and general digestive issues has slowly been waking me up for a positive change. By chance, I happened to come across the documentary called "Fork over Knives" and it changed everything for me. I began embracing a whole plant-food based diet aka "Vegan" three days ago, and so far it has been great! Not only am I starting to feel better but I know if I work hard at it, the weight will begin to fall right off. After being fat a majority of my life, it's time that I make a LIFELONG change and start taking care of myself :P

Right now I am taking on a Vegan lifestyle. I'm slowly incorporating movement which is a big change for me since I almost never exercise or move around.
