I just started my weight loss journey using whole foods and no processed crap. I had been on a downward spiral into Fast Food ****. I was buying double cheeseburgers and fries every day. Maybe for 2 meals of the day. Now I'm eating whole natural foods and feel amazing. I've only lost 2 pounds in the past few days but at least I'm not craving crap food, anymore. I'm currently in my 3rd week of my vegan diet. Yes, I have given up animal products of all kinds. I feel great.
I do look at other peoples carts and think to myself how sad it is to be eating that food, which I don't even want to call if "food" because its so over processed. Sad really.
I currently weigh 342 (highest was 344 or higher) and my ultimate goal is 150. But I'm only 5'2" so I really should be around 130 but I'll reevaluate my situation once I hit 150.
