My Journey Towards a Healthy Life - Part 2


Awhile back, in Part 1, I talked about my journey towards being in better shape and living a healthy life. While I've made great progress that I'm quite proud of, I still have to deal with one more thing: my weight. I have lost 25 lbs, and for that I am also quite proud, but I have more to lose. After I lost the initial weight, I leveled off and I haven't lost a pound in a few months. I had to take stock of what I was eating and realized that although I was eating much better foods, I was eating too much of it!

Since weight loss is my last healthy goal, I decided to dust off the old My Fitness Pal and start taking account of what I eat. I hadn't used it since my last weight loss, so the evil app decided to chop more off my daily calorie consumption...the big jerk. I kid, but in all seriousness, I have my work cut out for me. Being a vegan has come in handy though, because all the crap in the food market at work that would normally tempt me is not vegan. This makes it easy to stay away from the ice cream, candy bars, and other calorie dense-low nutrition foods! I've found myself just eating more veggies so I can consume more food and not feel so hungry.

So, wish me luck! I need it, and I will keep you updated. Have you found any good methods that work for you? Leave me a comment.

Have a great day,

H.A. Larson
