    Default Good riddance

    I've lost twenty pounds since switching to a plant-based diet at the end of August.

    I'm so happy.

    The problem is that none of my pants fit. I don't want to buy anything new because I plan to lose more.

    Good bye to the equivalent of 4 bags of sugar.

    Congrats!! What a wonderful feeling. What I did was buy just a few pants from thrift stores because I refuse to wear baggy pants to get me through. Then as I lost more I added a few more. And then donated them back. heh

    That is wonderful Sara! What I have done because I am losing a lot of weight too following a different diet plan than yours is that I wear elastic waist band pants and although the pants are rather baggy at least the elastic keeps them up for now. I, too plan on losing a lot more weight. Keep up the good work Sara. How is Gabe's weight loss going?

    woohoo! Great job! Have you thought of getting your clothes tailored to fit your new size? It may be cheaper than getting more clothes and will allow you to have stuff that fits you now.

    Just a suggestion for the clothes: if you have pants you really love, you could find a good seamstress to take them in. I've done this before and was happy to be able to keep some clothes I loved.

    Way to go on the weightloss and new healthy lifestyle!

    Gabe and I are plant-based. The kids are regular diet with an opportunity to eat more plant-based than usual.
