Welcome Threekitties1! I have gotten a little sloppy with my diet and have gained a few pounds. Time for me to join you with stricter food consumption.

Welcome. Cheese is an addictive substance. There are milk bi-products in most packaged phoodstuffs keeping us unnourished and hooked.

I'd recommend doing a thorough clean out of your kitchen.

Hello All!

My name is Melanie and I am new to the group. I've been toying around with gaining control of my weight since I gained about 100 lbs. in college. I was a lifelong competitive swimmer and was injured during my sophomore year. Turns out, you can't keep eating 5,000-7,000 calories per day and not gain weight when you don't workout 30 hours per week...go figure. So while I chalk up the last 20 years to lazy and unmotivated, I am finally ready to commit and make that permanent lifestyle change. I have tried to get people in my life to help support and motivate me, God love 'em, but it always seems too easy to give into temptation when someone wants to eat crappy food. Starting my "diet" tomorrow just never happens, right? So here I am, looking for support.

My family and I gave up all meat and dairy on January 16th of this year. It has been amazing, all the changes in my health. I've lost 15 lbs. (a drop in the bucket, but a start), my allergies have cleared - no more post-nasal drip, less joint pain, no more racing to the bathroom after every meal, more energy, and great improvement in my skin. All this said, I spent the month of March hopping back on the cheese wagon. Back came the constant stomach cramps and generalized feeling like crap. DONE. It just took that blatant example of exactly what dairy was doing to my body to make me recommit.

Excited to meet some intelligent, motivated vegan peeps here to keep me honest!
