Losing the worser half.

I need to lose 130lbs and I started at 260. That's losing half of myself. I am hoping that through tracking and getting back on track with exercise that I can get healthy. For my health, my self-esteem, my family, and my better half. Also hoping to find out more about my true self, and not the mopey, depressed person I am at my current weight. I use comedy as a shield, so I tend to make jokes at my own expense.

At ~220, my self-confidence started making a come-back. I'm learning to love my body, even though it's not perfect and will never be perfect. I realized I never learned how to style my hair or properly put on make-up. I want to remedy these things now that I'm starting to like my appearance.

I have found that My Fitness Pal is a lot more user friendly than Sparkpeople when it comes to logging. Hopefully I can just keep it up! I'm trying not to gain anything before the Diet Bet begins!

I like going to the gym because it gives my motivation. I'm a huge people watcher so I like to look at everyone while I lift and think about how awesome it's going to be when I get that ripped or think about how far I've come compared to that person just starting out. I can't get that at home.

As far as me being a vegetarian for my weight loss I think it had a huge impact. I don't think I could have done it without giving up the meat and I also think that that's a reason that I probably haven't lost anything since I started eating meat again. Portion control is so much easier when your a veg head. You can eat as much greens as you like and not gain weight. I didn't eat a lot of dairy to make up for the lack of meat too. Every once in a while I might make like a vegetarian pasta dish that called for a little bit of cheese but that's a bout it. I also ate a good bit of cottage cheese loafs which are packed with protein and I still find tasty to this day.

It was something I knew I could stick with because I was a Vegan in high school. Not a healthy one, but a vegan none the less. Cory and I try to go meatless now a few times a week because A: It's cheaper on the purse and B: It's FUN to try new things! I also LOVE tofu and know how to make a mean veggie sausage out of Vital Wheat Gluten. Cashew Cream is amazing in soups and also I will never drink dairy milk again. It doesn't agree with me.

If you decide to do it let me know and I can shoot you some recipes. I have a whole board on my Pinterest dedicated to Vegan meals!
