Are you really doing that again?

Sunday, June 30, 2013

Those were the words echoed by my husband and mother when I told them I was going to a vegan lifestyle again. My husband insists that if I just exercise I will lose weight (this is not the case) and I can eat whatever I want to (not really..lol). My mom claims I am being to restrictive and what is the point in eating that way.
My response to them has been that my body prefers to eat that way. Over the last week and a half since I made the commitment to eat vegan I have not had any stomach issues. While I hope that I lose weight through a plant-based diet, it is more about my body not having so many problems. It is discouraging not to have their support, but I have to move on for myself and my body. It just makes it more difficult when those closest to you do not support a healthy decision.

    It sounds like you are doing great and sometimes when you know you are feeling better, it is best to listen to yourself. Wishing you well on your journey ahead. emoticon emoticon emoticon
