Re: 1st contest

Failure at being VEGAN

Was doing great until my run today. Came home and out of tofu. My beans hadn't been soaked- still in the bag and I ended up running to the corner store by my house and buying a carton of eggs and proceeded to eat 2 of them. I feel horrible and a fake. I almost feel like giving up after this misstep....

Don't restrict calories too much if you're breastfeeding, and definitely don't go on a low-fat raw diet if you're breast feeding. Without sufficient calories and nutrients, you'll not only produce crappy milk, but you'll dry up too. Increase your caloric intake for your child's best interest. Worry...

Re: The "what I had for dinner" thread

Cheat day. Yeah!
Had a yummy tofu barbecue sandwich(all 600 calories!) with a vegan cupcake. Really high calories but I don't care. IT WAS so good.

Re: Trying hard and getting no where.

I trained and ran a whole marathon to lose weight. I went from 180 and when I was about down to your weight( I think I was 136 when I trained to run the Chicago Marathon) I didn't gain, but didn't lose and didn't see my abs and I thought for sure I was busting my butt. For me...when I was able to do...
