Life Update and Ramble

I’ve been holding on to my 100 lb weight loss effortlessly, which is great but it’s time to get some weight shifting again lol! I have had no issues with maintaining my weight while eating vegan, in fact even when I have a binge day of vegan junk food, I still don’t have any issues of gaining weight (mainly because I rarely have major binge days).

Have I been eating mainly whole foods? Nope! In fact, I indulge in vegan mexican food at least once a day, no joke lol! I have been snacking a lot in the evening and have not been drinking a lot of water… those are my two trouble area’s so I’m aware of what I need to do in order to shift some pounds if I want to. A couple weeks ago I cut out after dinner snacking again and upped my water intake… it was like taking a magic pill, I dropped 2 lbs that week and didn’t change my meals at all. I need to get back in the habit of drinking X amount of water and cutting out after dinner munching, I always start off good each day… but then fall off wagon after dinner. Am I upset at myself? Nope! I wake up in the morning with a smile on my face and go to bed feeling awesome, that is what matters.

The other day I was thinking about where I am right now in my weight loss journey and I have to say, I’m very happy. I could stay this weight the rest of my life and be thrilled… but I have two vegan t-shirts I bought in a size smaller (large) that fit but aren’t as comfy fitting as I prefer so that is my current goal… to wear those shirts lol!! I know, seems like a dumb goal but they are cute tee’s lol!

I don’t feel like rereading this post to edit, so I apologize if it’s a bit rambled or makes no sense! It’s 7:30 in the morning and I have been awake for 2 hours so far… after laying in bed awake for another 1.5 hours (thanks to a sweet kitty on my neck, not sure if I mentioned our new furry addition to our family, her name is Olive).

I’m going on my 4th month of being vegan and I can’t even remember what it was like (or tasted like) to not be eating vegan, it just feels like I’ve been doing this for years… which is a great feeling! Not once have I had a craving for anything non-vegan or felt deprived like many think vegans feel. It’s not that I “can’t have” something… it’s that I “choose not to have” something. Veganism isn’t about being on a diet or something like that, it’s a way of living as cruelty free as it is possible.
