Wow! I can't believe it's been 4 months since I last posted. I haven't stopped trying in that 4 months, I just haven't been active on SparkPeople. I have another weight-loss blog I've been doing a better job at keeping up on. I've been lacking motivation the past couple of weeks, so I'm trying to re-motivate myself by reading the message boards here. My husband and I did a one-month vegan experiment in June. I didn't lose any weight! I was trying to eat healthy too, but I didn't watch my portions. I basically ate as much as I wanted of the allowed foods. The good news is that I was on an all-you-can-eat diet and I didn't gain weight, but I really want to lose. Since that experiment ended, it seems like I've been trying to make up for all the foods we couldn't have during that month. I've gone a bit crazy and learned that I'm better off not completely banning foods because I'll make-up for it when I lift the ban. Now I'm just trying to eat healthy and watch the portions again. I'm down 10 pounds since I joined SparkPeople. I want to lose at least 40 more. I'm choosing healthy today!
