Hi Kath,

I'm new too.

I agree with you, plant based eating much better for us - but compassion for animals is a key motivator for me also.

Like you I snack for comfort and eat portions much too large. Got in the habit of eating husband sized meals. Anyway, hopefully this site will help us.

Hi Kath and welcome! I agree, I know of two women that lost a lot of weight with HCG but gained it all back when their doctors told them to give it up for the sake of their health. You're in a good place here with Spark People. emoticon

I believe in myself, I am a strong woman. I will reach my goals, NOTHING & NOBODY will hold me down. I will live my life with integrity and intention. I will set a good example for my daughters and my son. I will be a woman that makes my grand children proud when they look at pictures of me long after I've left this earth.

emoticon Welcome, Kath!

P. S. I just went and googled the HCG diet, I'd never heard about it before. According to the article I read, it is dangerous. I read that our Food and Drug Administration in the U.S. has advised people to avoid weight loss products that contain it. Stick with SparkPeople! Again, welcome!

Hi all,

I try to be vegetarian as i believe a plant based diet for me is healthier and i also i am also very compassionate towards animals, especially those who are bred solely for factory farming, although in saying that i occasionally will eat seafood.
I managed to lose 33 kilos last year, going from 109 to 76. This was tough and was 3 goes at a variation of the HCG diet through a naturopath.
Unfortunately, 12 kilos have crept back up and even though I have extremely healthy meals, my servings are too large and I tend to snack for comfort.
I want Spark to work for me as I don't want to go back to HCG.
I work in a busy stressful job, am married, and have 2 boys 18 and 15, plus a 33 year old step daughter .
I live in the Goulburn Valley, 2 hrs north of Melbourne.
