Vegan Challenge Day 1

V-Day is here!

Quick!  Before I chicken out! 

The photo is of my puffy morning face on Aug 1, 2011.

 

Stats that I know:

Cholesterol – 238 ON Zeitia (last year)

BMI – halfway between boxes 28/29.

 

Challenge Goals:

Loose 10 lbs. in 4-6 weeks

BMI of 27

Cholesterol at 199 or below

 

I’ll weigh in when I get home Wednesday morning, Aug 3.  I’ve been at my brother’s for 2 weeks and have been “kind of” on plan but slowly giving in to the indulgences.  Today is recommitment day.  My Engine 2 and Eat to Live books are at home, but until I get back I know the drill: eat fresh unprocessed foods (vegetables) when at all possible – cut out salt, sugar, oil, anything that has parents, a face or legs, and all by-products including dairy. Eat beans and some tofu/temphe for protein

 

The parts that will challenge me the most: coffee & occasional adult drinks (going to the books and recheck my options.  I know ETL nixes coffee and I have read it can affect cholesterol).

 

Good Luck Jonny O and all my Vegan Wanna Be friends who are also on the challenge wagon!

    Keep at it! You’ll be making and eating fabulous foods! You’ll feel lighter and healthier and discover you’re glowing! Post-menopausally, my cholesterol was 277. I’ve been plantstrong for three years; but, within three months as a vegan, my cholesterol went down to 119!
