Lost 12 pounds in 13 days!!

Sunday, May 15, 2011

So I've lost 12 pounds in 13 days! Never knew it was possible! I started this Vegan challenge not knowing what the outcome would be, but so far, I am loving every minute of it! Being Vegan is not at all bad! I eat!! ha... a lot of salads, beans, veggies and fruits! I also started walking everyday! I am up to 4 miles a day, plus an additional 30 minutes on elliptical. After the first week of walking, I began to actually enjoy it. And now, I wake up looking forward to it!! Who knew!!! The only problem I am having is I am actually burning more calories than I am eating, and am not quite sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing. Spark people says I should eat 1200-1550 calories daily, and burn up to 1900 calories a week. Well I burn 1900 in about 4 days, and am only eating 1000 calories!
I decided to treat myself and go and buy REAL walking sneakers.. I finally got rid of the Walmart sneaks, and went to the New Balance Outlet store, and bought an awesome pair for 30$!! Whoo-hoo! As soon, as I got home, I put those bad boys on and walked down to Dunkies for a nice coffee (1.18m), and my feet are enjoying every minute of it!
My friend started walking with me everyday, which is awesome! It definitely makes the time go by faster, and more enjoyable.!
After just coming home from walking, I want to go back...am I becoming obsessive? Well, I'd rather stay motivated than become tired and give up!
Looking forward to another day tomorrow!!
Good Luck Sparkers!!

    Great job Lauren! So proud of you...I am going to buckle down now too after the vacation! No excuses...vacations should not even be an excuse because you can eat healthy anywhere!

I am so happy that you are walking....that is great!

My doctor had told me to work up to 5 hours of walking per week...I think that was his recommendation...then eat within the range that Spark tells you.

Stephen gave me a recipe for a smoothie (he made it for me today), that was awesome! Do you like blueberries and mangos? I will tell you about it if you do!!

Love you so much,

Ellen
