Gaining weight Keto to Plant Based

Gaining weight Keto to Plant Based

I guess it was inevitable that once you put the carbs back the weight comes back as well. It didn’t take long and was actually a little alarming. At first I gained ever pound I lost within a week. That was disheartening but then it leveled off and I took off a couple of pounds. I’m still up five pounds but so be it. Why I changed? At first Keto was yummy. When you haven’t eaten cheese and butter for…

Joining weight watchers again

Joining weight watchers again

I made a decision yesterday to join weight watchers again. I’m up about 10 lbs from goal weight which isn’t terrible but that weight has been creeping up slowly since I stopped working out in June. Yes, vegans can gain weight. I’m just eating a lot of vegan crap and I can’t seem to get it under control on my own. I need the accountability of facing a scale each week. Unfortunately, sometimes when I’m on my own and I’m in…

Body perception and weight

Body perception and weight

In meditation and my prayers I’ve been trying to change the way I see myself, change my body image perception and my ideal goal numbers. I compare myself to everyone and never in a positive way. I am the most critical of myself and I am the most critical of myself in body image and weight.  I always have an answer, excuse a criticism when I look in the mirror, so I basically stopped looking from my neck down. I…

This is Jamie the raw and uncut version

This is Jamie the raw and uncut version

This is me, raw, no makeup, in my pjs, I may have brushed my hair. This is my blog. This is my journey. However, I always hope that I help someone. I hope somebody can relate to this. I hope I can connect. But in the end I write for me. Today this blog is about me. Today I’m setting forth my intentions in a contract to myself.  I wrote a blog not too long ago that me and my issues…

What I’d tell to my younger self if I could

What I’d tell to my younger self if I could

Yesterday I read a post by MerBear over at knocked over by a feather https://knockedoverbyafeather.wordpress.com/2017/04/18/an-easy-mark/. It was about those kids that teased us as children, the scars we carry because of it. Then she asked if we could go back in time, what would we say to them as adults. My reply was, if I can go back in time it was ME I’d be lecturing  not the bullies. If I could teach my younger self to eat right, work out, and…

Mid-section fat distribution

Mid-section fat distribution

If you follow my blog, you may have picked up by now that I’m scale obsessed. For anyone who just happened to stumble upon my blog, I’m scale obsessed. I keep a close enough eye on things to know I haven’t gained any significant weight. I bounce around a five pound mark but that’s about it. I’m not thin, by any means, but I’ve maintained my current weight and size for years. I’ve held my hourglass figure my whole life,…

The weight I am

The weight I am

I battled with my weight my entire life. I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1998. My neurologist’s letter to my primary care physician said, Jamie is a heavy set patient in her mid twenties, blah blah blah. I remember the physical therapy place I first went to had this computer bike. One time something wasn’t working right and the therapist said to another therapist that it happens only when a heavier person goes on. When I was in 6th…

Ideal Weight

Ideal Weight

I’ve had a number of what I should weigh in my head my entire life. I’ve had an image of what I should look like. I should have the perfect figure…36, 24, 36. I don’t even know what that looks like. This perfect woman isn’t anorexic, she looks great, but guess what, that’s not me.  I’m 5’2″ and I right now fluctuate between 145-150lbs. I use to fluctuate between 150-155lbs until I became vegan. My measurements are something like 36…
