Hi Everyone! I recently ordered Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness and came across the 12 Day Challenge. I am in need of some motivation so this is a wonderful coincidence.

A little about myself: Female, early 30s. Went vegan in 2007, primarily for ethical and environmental reasons. Little did I know how much transitioning to a plant-based diet would positively impact my health. At the time I was an overworked, overstressed, overweight grad student. Actually, I was obese at 210 lbs on a 5’6’’ frame. By eliminating animal foods, gradually transitioning to a less processed, whole foods diet, and regularly walking I have lost over eighty pounds and maintain my weight with ease.

I enjoy keeping up-to-date on nutritional aspects of a plant-based diet; my real challenge is staying motivated with regard to exercise. I enjoy walking, and have added Pilates, sit-ups, and yoga to my regular physical activity. I also ‘lift’ liquid laundry detergent containers or whatever heavy item I can find around the house. I’m on a budget and try to stick with low or no-cost physical fitness options. One of my goals is to start running and I have signed up for a half-marathon training program that also includes access to a full-service fitness center.

I look forward to getting motivated and staying on track.

Sincerely,
m.
