I just want to thank you, Steffi, for emailing me and I am happy to be able to help in any way I can. I would just like to share with others reading this that one of the first things I do, (after listening to you tell me all you can about yourself, where you are in life, where you want to be, what challenges you the most, what your strengths are, etc.) is ask for a food journal. Preferably 5 days worth of journaling every bit of food and drink you consume. This is very helpful, even if you are looking to make changes on your own, to analyze your regular eating habits before attempting to make big changes.
The other important piece to work on right away is putting a solid support system in place. It is vital to surround yourself with people and groups who will help you along the way, whether it be friends, family, forums like this, groups on social media sites... FIND the support, its out there! And it will be a key component in your success in transitioning to a healthy, plant-based diet and fit lifestyle!
Hope this helps someone, and again, lots of good information on http://www.sexyfitvegan.com
