Eat to Live... a new chapter!

I lost 75 pounds with Weight Watchers, then got fickle and flip-flopped with plans, and ended up gaining almost half of it back.

I've realized that no plan will work forever, and I'm ready to start over with a new way of eating: Eat to Live (book by Joel Fuhrman). I've been vegan for almost two years, but I was definately a "junk food vegan". I'm hoping that ETL will help me learn to love whole food eating!

Also, I'm hoping to finally reach my ultimate weight loss ...

Also, I'm hoping to finally reach my ultimate weight loss goal and get down to 135 and (please?) a size 8 or 10 jeans. Time will tell!

I started ETL on March 6, 2012.

My Program:
I follow a vegan diet, meaning that I consume no animal products.

Since May 2009, I have lost 75 pounds with Weight Watchers and veganism, plus learning to love exercise.

I'm now entering into maintenance, and I am re-learning Intuitive Eating. I'm planning to find my happy weight, meaning a healthy weight that I can maintain fairly easily.

Starting weight: 220
Current weight: 144.2
Goal weight: 144.0

I'm at a healthy BMI for the first time in several years.

Personal Information:
Hi everyone! My name is Leah, and I'm currently living and loving life in Memphis, TN, with a goal of moving to NYC within the next 3 years.

I'm a full time administrative assistant for a small engineering firm, as well as a full time student at the University of Memphis, studying Political Science and Womens Studies, with plans to go on to law school.

I am unmarried and child-free by CHOICE, and I live with my boyfriend of three years.

Anything else you want to know, feel free to ask! I'm an open book. :-)

Other Information:
Please check out my healthy living blog, especially if you are looking into either Weight Watchers or veganism!

emoticon for the comment on my blog about my magic shoes. I have a pair of cute running shoes, but they aren't nearly as magical...LOL. The one cool thing (that wasn't planned) is that my new shoes are red, white and blue, and my 5K is on the 4th of July. Grasping at straws huh?

Every time I look at your old pictures I am motivated. You have done amazingly well. Keep eating and living healthy.
