I’ve been a lacto-ovo vegetarian for 29 days. I’ve slipped up, but got right back on the wagon. Since switching, I’ve lost 8 pounds and I’m not as hungry as I used to be. Once I gain custody of my son Ezra again, he’ll be eating healthier too. Right now, I have absolutely no say in what he can and cannot eat.
Being overweight is the reason why I’ve gone back to being veg. Meat products have been linked to early puberty. If you don’t believe me, go to Yahoo.com and type in “meat linked to early puberty” and just read.
It won’t be easy to stick to my lifestyle/diet, because I live with an omnivore (someone who eats meat and dairy). But he respects my beliefs and won’t knock it. I will press on…by eating right, educating myself even more about the vegetarian lifestyle and….EXERCISE MORE. Right now, I ride my bike for about 15 minutes 7 days a week. Yesterday, I started doing Billy Blank’s BootCamp Cardio Live again. 29 minutes of fast-paced cardio and strength training.
I want to be back to a size 14 by the end of this year. I won’t fail at vegetarianism again. I can’t afford to.
