How much did you lose (pounds, inches, dress/pants size)?

I lost two pounds per week for the first two weeks, then one pound for the next 15 weeks. All fat…

When did you become unhappy with your weight (were you overweight as a child or did you gain weight as an adult?

I enjoyed running in high school, so I was able to maintain a decent weight on my 5’7″ frame. Every year after, with work and less exercise, I put on about two pounds per year. I wanted to get back (or close to) my original weight I felt best at.


What was the most challenging thing you had to deal with during your weight loss journey?

The plant-based diet transition was the hardest. More so with cooking time. I used the meal plan online for quick snacks and breakfast, especially after training before work. I used the vegan cookbook for meals that I could spread out for a couple days or more since most recipes make more than the servings I need. Still experimenting but having fun with the process.
