becoming vegan

Sunday, September 08, 2013

I am seeing results from seriously limiting meat and dairy. I'm not a vegan but I am eating vegan, or better plant strong. I still like meat and cheese, milk and eggs but choose not to eat them for health reasons. It's working for me. I have lost 40 pounds since January. Not fast but in a way that seems sustainable for the rest of my life. And that's what I am looking for. I have lost lots of weight in the past but have always regained and more. What I want now is a way of eating that promotes loss, is healthy and I can live with forever without feeling deprived. And this seems to be it. I am satisfied enough with my meals that I can manage temptation. Usually that means I have a bite or two of something and that's all I need. a taste of chicken tikka masala, a bite of cheesecake, one cookie. Not ever day but when I feel I can't walk away from temptation. I don't have to beat myself up over these treats which has often in the past led to abandoning any effort to lose as beyond me.
