So I posted yesterday about Weight Watchers and how I am moonlighting as a vegetarian for the month of June, (which caused QUITE a debate on my Facebook page for some reason!) and I want to give a quick update! I started this vegetarian journey on June 1, 2011 and after today's WW weigh in I lost 9.4 lbs!!!! Now I wouldnt normally post this kind of thing on this blog, I can brag about my efforts on Facebook if I want BUT, I thought yesterday's post needed some follow-up.
Now I'm sure JUST going veg wasn't the only factor here, I did step up my activity, ran/walked/biked etc. and it was the pre-"Time of the Month" week, and I cooked all my meals and didn't drink. I also had a Twix at one point and a couple of Ice Cream cones as well!
The point is deprivation is not required for weight loss! I've lost 35 lbs. in the past 6 months! (See the post Audition Dresses for a before photo)
