My experience on this journey

I have been absent from blogging due multiple things going on, for one I am looking for a job. Well looking for a job is not easy in this economy so it demands alot of me. I have been working out more with my free time and I love it. Before I start this blog I was very overweight in fact I almost weigh about 290 at my highest, that was when I was very unhealthy.

It's took me about 1 year of learning how to get in a groove of wanting to get healthy. This year I will be able  to lose my weight and will be able to keep it off. This past year before I went vegan it was a very rough year or two. I went from being vegetarian to vegan overnight due high sensitive to milk and all milk products.

I really didn't understand until a few months ago what the exact healthy benefits where of a plant based diet (vegan). It was like overnight results and they are still continuing. The picture on the left is from November 2009 and the picture on the right is from November 2011.

I didn't really notice the different until I found my pictures on my camera from the past year's and noticed the weight different. However this is the only the begin I am going to continue to this process to lose weight, I am at 250 now. I know it's not the best weight but I have kept it off and I am continuing to lose the weight.

I am really putting myself out here to explain that my blog is going to be changing alot , after thinking this over. I am going to keep the name but however my focus on going to be primarily on weight loss journey while here in Texas. I am going to keep on doing reviews of everything that comes my way that is part of the plant based diet; notice that I am not really using the word vegan. I feel that it's way overused these days but yes I will consider myself vegan.

What do you think of my new direction for my blog? Be honest please I am open to feedback.


  1. I like called it a plant based diet because the word "vegan" sometimes get unexpected responses from friends and family.  

    By the way, you look great!  Keep up the working out.  I find working out addictive!
