Here we go again...I"ve tried to switch to a vegan diet before, but always found it very difficult. Esp. when eating out, and most esp. when ordering for my kids. My new bf and her hubby and I started an 8 week vegan cooking class together tonight. We had tons of fun, and enjoyed sampling the recipes that were demonstrated (not crazy about some of them though, but my tastebuds will adapt). My husband is really pushing for us to change our lifestyle....I'm panicking a little but I think the class will at least help give me some ideas. I really hope we stick to it this time. I've been trying all week to get to the gym, but either he's been out of town, or the kids and I had plans during the little bit of time that he was home. He's away again tomorrow, but this should be the last day, so next week should be much better. He did physical outdoor work for a couple of weeks, while his Dad was feeding him a vegan diet, and he said he felt better than he ever has and he's lost a visible amount of weight. When I was out shopping at Superstore today (I didn't buy a single unhealthy thing) I passed the Joe clothing department and was wishing I could fit into a couple of things. And I thought one day I will, and I'll be able to shop for my husband there as well, and won't it feel great!

I got a dose of laughter and exercise, plus socialization with some really great people today. A big group of homeschoolers took our kids on a field trip to "Jurassic Forest" this morning. What a blast! I'm feeling truly great this afternoon despite being sleep deprived! I'm going to go have a healthy supper now and enjoy the evening with my kids. Friday we take the kids to our fabulous Science centre for the day and then over to my girlfriend's for play time/dinner/and hopefully a bible study. Life is good! I feel so blessed right now. My husband and I even got to go on a date yesterday!

My girlfriend called me the other day, apparently she wants to do something about her weight, and told me that there's an overeaters anonymous. I had no idea; we're planning to check out a meeting one of these days. I also mentioned to her that there are support groups on SP for compulsive eaters/emotional eaters, and articles too. Hopefully she'll check out the site. The ironic thing is she's the one who told me about Spark over 18 months ago, but I think she only logged on once or twice. I don't see her very often; she doesn't have any kids, and has been very focused on her career and planning her recent wedding. It would be great if we had something like this that we could do together!
On a sadder note, every time I hear OE Anonymous, it makes me think of my brother, he's an alchoholic, has recently lost his 2nd job in as many months and doesn't know how he's going to pay his rent. We're talking about doing an intervention. I'm scared to death.

It would have been an excellent day, I ate lots of fruits and veggies, had tons of fun at the park with the kids, and took a walk (should have put on sunscreen though!). And then....we went for ice cream, I should have made a smoothie! Ugh, now I'm 200+ calories over for today, I don't feel very good, and I set a bad example for the kids. But tomorrow is another day...I'm going to spend it cleaning and playing with my girls. Then it's off to tend our little community garden for 2 hours on Friday.

It is starting to sink in that this is really happening. I've NEVER lost this much weight before. And I feel completely confident that I'm going to lose it all (and keep it off.) The scale is going in the right direction! And I'm not even perfect all the time. I had 3 pieces of a 12" thin crust veggie pizza last week, (the best pizza I've ever had) and several 100 calorie granola bars another day. I'm not tempted to eat the kind/amount of junk that I used to. And now I'm almost at the 1/3 mark. It has taken me 7 months (my weight loss stalled out for about 2 months, but at least I didn't gain!). I'm not worried about it happening fast, as long as it's happening! And I don't feel at all like I'm depriving myself, so I don't believe that I'll gain it back. Of course it is all only because of the grace of God Almighty. I never thought to pray for God to help me lose weight before, but once I did it just started happening and He led me to various resouces including this site! He is soooo amazing and wonderful, I am so blessed and grateful. This is only the tip of the iceberg of what He has done for my family and I in the last couple of years. It has been a very rocky road along the way, but He carried us through. Prayer is so powerful, I am completely in awe and am falling more and more in love with Him with each passing day.
