On September 27, 2012 the scale read 239.

Today, that scale, and the body that stood on that scale, was 50 pounds lighter.

And that absolutely blows my mind.


I can remember thinking at some point, a long time ago, how it would be crazy to weigh 185. That I’d actually be happy with weighing 185. Well, now that I’m almost there, I can’t imagine being satisfied with that number. Not at all.

At this point, I’m halfway to my goal. And it’s getting harder, y’all. The scale is a stubborn cuss that likes to play with the same 5 pounds until she finally gives. It’s frustrating to say the least.

But I will keep at it…

Keep making healthy choices.

.        Keep exercising.

.                   Keep praying.

Because I can’t do this alone. And it’s not getting easier.

But this is totally happening.

Thanks for your support, friends.

    You know I don’t think I realized how recently you started all this- you lost 50 pounds FAST (I’m not saying “too fast”… and it may have felt slow, but in the grand scheme of things… that seems pretty quick)! Maybe I need to think twice about going vegan!!! 😉 Congrats!

      You know, it worried me at first, that it was too fast, but it’s been about ten pounds a month so roughly 2-3 lbs per week, which I think is okay. The more I lose, I suspect the slower it will come off. It is honestly the easiest thing I’ve ever done in terms of weight loss.

      But we chose to adopt a plant based diet for long term health reasons, and losing weight is a natural side effect. I have been thinking I ought to blog a bit more about how we got here, I’ve just been letting it brew. I’ll get to it eventually. Maybe.
