So I changed my diet to vegan back in June, after several months I was off the bandwagon. Well I am tired of feeling bad and not losing weight like I would like too. So last week I went cold turkey vegan and I haven't cheated at all. I already use just mayo, the Just products are vegan. Well I decided to see if they had a website and low and behold they did. I found out they have a vegan ranch dressing, yay I can start eating spinach salads again. They also have cookies, which yes I did buy some, I do crave sweets every so often. Back in Oct I finally had my gallbladder removed, I have felt so much better since then. I have been eating well and exercising, losing a little here and there. But last week was great, I couldn't stop weighing myself and from Sun to Sat I had lost 9 lbs, I was so happy. This week I am hoping for some more weight loss, I haven't been able to get to the gym this week, bummer. I did start back to working, so that is some form of exercise, always on my feet walking somewhere. For lunch today my son and I went to Pizza Rev, so how did I eat a pizza easy. I had them put on very little vegan cheese, some vegan sausage, pineapples, mushrooms, and black olives. I only ate 3 small slices then gave the rest to my dad. Yesterday I bought some vegan eggs, I am really excited about trying them out and seeing how they taste. FOr how much I spent they better taste good. I bought a pressure cooker and an air fryer, really looking forward to using them. I am eager to make some black eyed peas, yummy. I even have a cranberry beans to try, never heard of them but willing to try them out. I got my lapband filled today and saw the dietician. She was glad that I went vegan, I was shocked. Last time I saw a dietician she was like no you need meat and milk, you get calcium from milk, yeah almond milk. I just wish I had a bigger support system, people I could workout with, or just talk to. People going through the same thing I am going through. Yes I have my best friend, but she doesn't understand. I am not giving up. I want to be able to take my kids to Universal Studios next summer and enjoy it. I also would like to date, finding a guy at my weight that isn't overweight is hard. I'm not trying to sound stuck up, but I want someone who eats healthy, like me and works out. If I were to find someone who wanted to lose weight like myself, then yes I would date him. Plus hanging out with someone besides my kids would be nice. I am really looking forward to buying new clothes, ones that don't make me look 9 months pregnant, ugh. I have a lot of clothes that I use to be able to wear, wearing those again will be great. I am happy to be where I am right now in life, I'm not going to quit, I am going to keep pushing forward.
