Hi all! Just wanted to update you on how I'm doing on my diet. I have to be honest and tell you I haven't weighed myself yet. I really couldn't do it two weeks ago but I'm getting ready to do it probably on Monday. I had to get myself ready to see the damage I have done after all that hard work a couple years ago when I reached my goal weight. I tried to go vegan and pretty much ate my way through a lot of carbs. While I'm not happier eating meat, I am happier with the results. I think I need to lose about 20 pounds. I'll know Monday. But I will tell you I feel sooooo much better today than I did two weeks ago. I've definitely lost maybe 5 pounds and I'm on my way again to a much happier me. Stick with it and let me know how I can help!
