180 lbs down, 20 to go!





Hey everyone! My name is Mary, and I've lost 180 lbs by evolving into a plant based diet. I am from and live in gorgeous Southern California. I am passionate about the foods that I love, animals, being a dork, the beach, free thinkers, people with unique world views, people who want to make the world better, people who make me think, and the hope that maybe one day the vegan community can be a united front!

We all come into our choices in our own time, but my truth is that a plant based diet not only opened up my heart and mind, but freed me from food addiction and morbid obesity!

This blog is a way for me to be accountable, for me to be inspired by the journey of others, to express appreciation for the things that I love, to inspire, and to learn!

In 2008, I weighed 335 lbs. By the end of 2009, I weighed about 199 lbs. Since then, my weight had gotten back up to 267, and I stayed there for a hot minute. Anyway, 2011 ended and I realized that I spent most of the year dreaming about what I wanted to happen rather than making it happen. 2012 started with me meeting none of my 2011 goals. 2013 started with a weight loss of 60 lbs in 2012, and -128 lbs total. I am currently at a -180 lb weight loss!!!

September is a HUGE goal setting month, in my opinion.  Whether we like it or not, the New Year is when most of us panic, then binge workout for a couple of weeks Jan 1-14 and spend the rest of the year wishing we had that awesome feeling of accomplishment.  I did that for so long and failed for so long that I can’t stand that feeling.  So, I want to hit it hard now, so that I go into the New Year in inner awesomeness rather than wishing that I could have done a lot better.  
Plus, October 31st is usually a major milestone for me regarding the status of my goals!!
