Just Keep Pushing!

Hi everyone!

Well, years of self-neglect takes its toll. I'm here to lose weight, but more importantly, I'm here to help support a major lifestyle change.

I started this journey last October, after spending a few days at Farm Sanctuary (and if you don't know what that is, you should look it up!). I had been a vegetarian (a fat, lazy vegetarian!) for years, but after my trip in October, I turned a psychological corner and made the decision to go vegan.

Hi everyone!

Well, years of self-neglect takes its toll. I'm here to lose weight, but more importantly, I'm here to help support a major lifestyle change.

I started this journey last October, after spending a few days at Farm Sanctuary (and if you don't know what that is, you should look it up!). I had been a vegetarian (a fat, lazy vegetarian!) for years, but after my trip in October, I turned a psychological corner and made the decision to go vegan.

As it turns out, this decision was key to starting a whole new life for me, and I haven't looked back. Now that I'm eating in a way that's more true to myself, I have been improving myself in other ways, too. I feel like I'm peeling layers off myself -- both physically and psychologically -- to reveal myself as I truly am underneath all the nonsense. It's very liberating.

I'm not naive enough to think this will always be easy; change, as cathartic as it is, can be a bit like single-handedly pushing a truck up an icy hill in the dark. That's why I'm here; I want to support this lifestyle change as much as possible. Like buttressing a building, I'm trying to create as many support systems as possible. I don't have a lot of support for this change in my own social circle, and I've met some great people on this site before. So... I'm always happy to hear from anyone!

Good luck on your journey!
