Hi, I'm Linda, and I'm from Va. I've been fat all my life and tried every "diet" in existence! I've lost about 175 pounds over the past 6 years and I'm interested in eating more a vegetarian diet. I don't eat beef and I feel better eating less meat. I'm concerned about getting the nutrients I need by eliminating meat altogether. I have Crohn's disease so I do have quite a bit of difficulty keeping my nutritional values up. I am in remission but my small bowel is damaged to the point it doesn't absorb well. I also need to get more exercise.. and stay motivated to exercise!
