Just a quick update about my weight-loss efforts:
Since switching to a mostly-vegan diet, I’ve lost a few more pounds and an inch off my waist. Overall, I feel lighter and more energetic.
I haven’t lost as much fat as I’d like, but I can easily tell that what I need to do is simply stop the “cheating”. I tend to munch on cookies, chocolate, and other treats when I’m too busy or stressed. And I’ve noticed the difference right away when I have a little too much fat or sugar: I get bloated. Whenever I do this more than once or twice a week, I put on a pound or two. It’s very predictable.
So, I know what works and what doesn’t. My goal for the coming weeks is to avoid the junk food.
