It's a Blog Tour! :)

1. Post a before picture.

My brother's wedding was my ah ha moment. As I talked to people that I hadn't seen for years I knew they were thinking, man, she has sure rounded out!

2. Post your most current after picture.

3. State the amount of weight you’ve lost.

I Have lost a total of 24 pounds since I started in Feb 2009. Over Christmas I gained 10 pounds back. Since starting Weight Watchers and VBD 3 weeks ago I have lost 6 pounds

4. If you are on a specific eating/exercise plan, what is it?

I am trying the Vegan Before Dinnertime Diet in conjunction with Weight Watchers. Basically, I stick to a pretty strict vegan diet until dinner when I can eat whatever I want. (But not really whatever I want because Weight Watchers helps me keep things in check.)

5. What is your favorite healthy snack?

Fruit! I always feel like I am cheating when I eat it. :)

6. What is the biggest life lesson you’ve learned on your journey?

Meat is NOT required at every meal!

7. What is the biggest strength you’ve discovered about yourself?

I can do anything if I put my mind to it.

8. What has been your toughest struggle?

Motivation...trying to do something with my day even though I am currently jobless. (There have been many days this year that I have stayed all day in bed. Since I have started my journey, those kind of days have been few and far between. :)

9. Who has been your biggest supporter and why?

My mom! She roots for me every second of the day and never forgets to tell me how good I'm looking. (I wish I could say my husband...but...well, that is another story for another time.)

10. When you get to goal, what will you do next?

I really really really really want to compete in a Triathlon Sprint!

11. What do you wish someone had told you when you first began?

That blogging rocks, and I should have started my blog earlier!

13. Now, go visit Julie! She is a true ROCK STAR!!!! .


  1. I want to eat the snack that you have on your page SO badly! It looks fabulous! :)

  2. YOU are a ROCK STAR too!!! I need to learn that not every meal needs meat! Hmmm... I think on it. :)

  3. Can't wait to see the pictures. I love that we don't have to have meat too. great

  4. Mmmmmm fruity snacks are awesome! (And so are YOU!)

  5. I agree! meat is not required for every meal!
    Great post!

  6. Ok I am so proud of you for posting the pics. Looking GREAT!

  7. I tried doing the vegetarian thing for the majority of the day. But, I realized that protien is what I crave when I crave something. But I have lost a good amount of weight cutting back on my meat. I love your before and currents! GOOD JOB!

  8. Vegan until dinner... now that's something I could contemplate. That's basically how today is about to turn out. You're awesome!

  9. I love having fruit for a snack too and your picture is making me crave some right now. :)
