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.
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!
