I'm Leslie, brand new to spark people. Not new to weight loss or vegetarianism (struggling with weight since childhood, vegetarian for three years), but always looking for new ways to motivate myself and regain my health.
I'm toying with veganism. I was recently diagnosed lactose intolerant, and I thought, why not just give that up too? I'd rather do that than take pills or chew tablets. That works for many, I'm sure, but I think I'd just rather take out animal products altogether.
I'm beginning a very long (familiar) journey to lose 100+ pounds. I lost 106 pounds in the past, but managed to put it all back on over the course of the last 3 years or so. It's really taken a toll on my health and how I live my life, and I just can't live like this anymore. So, here I am.
Anyway, hello to all you fellow vegetarians and vegans, I hope we can all learn a lot from each other!
