I have NO idea why or where all this is coming from, as once again the only change I have made in my life is the vegan diet to get this weight off! While I believe I have lost 5 pounds in three weeks I have to say I tend to weigh differently from morning to night etc... So I say I have lost this amount because I am weighing myself after my morning coffee, after going to the barn... and after my shower while I am dripping wet. SO ...
I have lost inches... lots of inches... and the energy is CRAZY!
I have had more and more trouble sleeping through the years. I thought it was my hormones getting out of wack, my husband snoring like a freight train, and getting older! Recently the husband has complained about MY snoring! but even last night when he woke me up more than 4 times I was able to get back to sleep (I have never been able to do that) BUT this could have been a fluke for only last night.
Having said all of that my knee pain is not as much as it was three weeks ago. I say this as MORE about the little bit of weight I have lost and not as related to the diet change itself.
These are ONLY MY results, nothing scientific here! only me, one person doing what I can when I can and how I can to get my weight off my bad leg, keep my life going forward in a way I am comfortable with, and I am NOT preaching or telling anyone else what they need to be doing.
I had an apple with almond butter and hemp for breakfast.
I had beets in orange and ginger, an avocado, and cauliflower in curry for lunch...
I had a banana with peanut butter and hemp for a snack later in the day...
and tonight I didn't crave a dinner so... that was my day... coffee with coconut milk when I got to work! (can't do that all the time it is too sweet of a creamer for me)
I had so much energy this morning I laid yet another few bricks before going to work!
