Even being a vegetarian for 17 years hasn’t prevented me from falling victim to one of America’s biggest problems – overeating and being overweight. I’m 6’1″ and my idea weight is around 175. At my heaviest I was over 210. No, that isn’t a huge deal, but it really slowed me down and made me feel bad about myself.
I got in the habit of eating for comfort and eating because I felt like it. Over the course of about 6 months, I lost over 35 pounds and got back down to 175. Since then, I have successfully kept the weight off and now manage to stay between 175 and 180. Adjust the numbers for your own height and body type, but I can share with you how I managed to lose my weight and keep it off. I found a nice, simple ideal weight calculator at this site.
Over the next few posts, I will share several of the best tips of things that have worked for me, including the one thing that I did that helped me shed 10 pounds in a matter of a few weeks. Also, I have some great observations on what has happened to my body and how it can traslate to helping you lose weight and keep it off.
