Once upon a time I was relatively successful on Weight Watchers. And then I stopped following the program and BAM! The weight all came back. This is my fault, not the program.
I could easily follow Weight Watchers, but I can't seem to 'get there' these days. So, instead, I'm focusing on controlling food binges and shifting to a vegetarian diet. I'm not looking to lose weight right now. I am looking to make healthier food decisions and eat according to my values. I never thought I would do the vegetarian thing. Ever.
But then I saw a youtube video by the Beagle Freedom Project which showed animal-tested beagles experiencing freedom and grass for the first time.
It broke my heart and I made the decision to switch to cruelty-free products. I have been cruelty-free for a year.
Then a bunch of recalls came out for ground beef. It made me question why I eat beef, as I don't really like it. So it made sense to avoid beef. I didn't expect to take it any further than that....but I watched Food, Inc and decided to ditch the whole meat thing completely. I'm not perfect and I may eat meat down the road but right now, it's the right decision for me.
