I have proved to myself many times that I can lose weight. The problem for me is maintaining the weight loss. I firmly believe that my body wants to be bigger than what I am now, and will hold on to any calorie I eat to get there.
When I lost weight before, I was working out an hour and a half, but it was not every day. I was lucky to go every other day. When I was in high school, running track, practice averaged two and a half hours, 5 days a week. That is when I weighed 115, and because of the rigorous activity I could eat whatever I wanted. Except for this one time I ate hot dogs every meal for about a weak, needless to say I gained 5 lbs. Yuck, hot dogs; cheap, convenient, disgusting.
Hopefully, being vegan means I do not have to do two and a half hours hard cardio, five days a week to meet my goal. My plan is to do 30 minutes of exercise 5 days a week. If that does not work, I will raise it to 45 minutes, 60 minutes, etc. I have my fingers crossed. Stick with me and we can see results together.
