It's still all about calories in-calories out, regardless of what you're eating. Are you tracking your calories and your exercise so that you can see exactly how much is going in and how much is getting burned? Often we think we have it down when we really don't. That would be my first suggestion on the weight-loss front.

Hoping for health and happiness for us all ~Peach

Hi everyone! I am transitioning to vegan. I am managing vegetarian quite well, but I don't want to have any animal foods in my diet. My goal is to totally transition by Earth Day. My problem is not what I want to eat, but what my family will tolerate. They are supportive of me as long as it doesn't affect what they want to eat. lol So I'm trying to find good alternatives to dairy products that they will adapt to. Its mostly processed foods that we disagree on. For instance, they will only eat Quaker chewy chocolate/peanut butter granola bars. Which I guess is ok for a vegetarian diet, especially for the two of them who are naturally thin, but to me, its just a lot of sugar. That type of thing is the challenge I face in this. I'm perfectly happy living on veggies, whole grains and fruits. Still, I'm not doing something right. I've been working at this transition for a few weeks and although I'm seeing some improvements, I've not lost any weight. That's frustrating. But I want this to be how I eat the rest of my life. Its what my spirit has been trying to lead me to for years, and now I'm finally listening.

Blessings,
Enera
