I've been following a "whole food, plant based diet" since mid-May and I'm still going strong. It feels natural for me - I think I was always meant to eat this way. I don't miss meat and it turns out I have not missed any dairy products as I suspected I might.
I have reached my goal weight of 108 and I'm now weighing every other day or so with the goal of staying between 105-110 lbs. (I've also started using the bathroom scale which is not as accurate at the Wii, but so much easier to use and more than adequate at this stage. If it ever breaks, I'll purchase a more accurate model.) So far this seems to be much easier on a vegan lifestyle. Time will tell. I've been at this point several times in my lifetime, but it all starts falling apart after about a year. I'm hopeful that will not be the case this time, but only time will tell.
What I have not kept up with is daily exercise. I know I need to get back into a daily routine and I just have not been able to get there yet. I know I will at some point - I'm just not there yet.
