 Been vegan again for 1 month, minus Christmas day where I had a few bites of cheesey spinach dip and mashed potatoes because I partied the night before and was not strong enough for my vulnerabililty. Paid the price, and was reminded why I dont eat the stuff. It's bad for my body and the world.

I was vegan for almost an entire year and it was the best I'd ever felt in my life. Boundless energy, happiness, inspiration. So many healthful benefits. Not too mention, with the inclusion of fasts, 30-40 lbs lost. 

Went on a hiatus, and gained a lot of weight back, not all of, but half of it. Along with losing all those things I talked about (not completely).

cw:145 lbs
hw: 160 lbs
lw: 105 lbs
cgw: 125 lbs
ugw: 110 lbs
what-the-hell-are-you thinking weight: 105 lbs

I will get down to 110.

I fast, but I like to do it the *healthy* ways, in this case-- with lots of water, raw veggies (mostly salads without dressing, or a little vinegar for dressing), some fruits (mostly high water content varieties), and fresh juices (mostly veggie) and smoothies (for example, berries, spinach and flax).


I would love to have a buddy or two or three to help me stay strong, so leave a comment/message if that is something you are interested in.


I welcome support from others, and will support you in your journey to skinny and vegan. Stay lovely.

Congrats on being vegan so long. I slipped a bit on Christmas as well, but it was more intentional, since I didn't want to make any trouble for anyone (didn't eat meat though) and I also hadn't made anything to eat. I was very good on New Year's though. I made the traditional black-eyed peas into a flatbread wrap with fresh cabbage and tomatoes. Yummy!
Lately, I've become obsessed with tomatoes. I think I'm craving summer...I want guacamole too. :)
Next I'll be craving melons. Sigh.
So anyway, I'm in the wanna-lose-weight boat too. At least fifteen or twenty pounds. We'll see how it goes, but as for right now, I don't really care about weight loss - just being healthy. Haha.
I'll be checking on here occasionlly, and feel free to friend me if you like. I always like talking to other vegans. :3

Hi there! I'll be there to cheer you on if you need. I've recently returned full-time to veganism after realising that I'm so much healthier that way. My weight is an issue and very difficult to shift due to a medical condition, but I'm not giving up.

I've just started LJ after a big break so it would be nice to have some vegan friends. Please feel free to add me.

You will get to your target I'm sure!
