I'm new to this team and the app/website too.

I started the new year going vegan. I wanted to get healthier. I lasted 2 months and never cheated in that 2 months. Then I decided to quit because I was starting to think I had less energy throughout the day. Thought I think now the reason is because I was exercising and not adding more calories to my diet.

In those 2 months I lost 20 lbs and ever since I have stayed static at the same weight even though I was eating healthy. It's been tough. I also think I held myself to a standard that was too high. Too many friends and family just waiting for me to fall off this Vegan Train.

Now things are different; will be different. I have told nobody that I'm going vegan again. I'm just going to do it. I don't care what anyone else thinks.

It's not just for health but ethical concerns are a close 2nd to my personal health. So the combination of the two is why I am getting back on board.

I just wanted to share my story and say hello to everyone. Thanks!
