Eat to Live

I had bought this book last year  and tried to follow through with the plan. I  was really responding to being a Vegan. My hair, skin and nails was just beyond  strong shiny and healthy looking. But sadly finances and change of seasons made  getting the fresh fruits and veggies that I needed next to impossible. Okay well that was a cop out.. it made is impossible to buy all of the vegan processed (IE; grab and go)  food I liked. ** I had just quit smoking and I bet dirt would have tasted "good"!**
Yes Virgina... there is Vegan junk food.. and a lot of it. I did not lose much but then again I was not truly following the Eat to live plan. Really out side of a couple of salads that I added to my day I really wasn't following it at all. It was like I was this new wide eyed Vegan...looking out  at the new world of Satain and Soy Ice cream! Okay YUM. I had to get over the mind set of "Well, it say's Vegan so it HAS to be good for me .. right?? Um I  guess not....
So here I am yet again.
I am going to commit to the 6 weeks.. not necessarily because I want to lose weight. I will not complain if I do mind you, but I did like how good I felt.
So I will now  include the day one **before** picture.. don't say I didn't warn you LOL!

So today is day one.. I am 212.4 lbs in this picture.  I am what I am ;)Color Me Vegan: Maximize Your Nutrient Intake and Optimize Your Health by Eating Antioxidant-Rich, Fiber-Packed, Color-Intense Meals That Taste Great
