So I’ve been thinking about changing how I’ve been doing things around here. I am still really wanting to help people find their way to a whole foods plant based diet but I’m thinking that I need to help bring people to it by working on myself as well.
I was going to do background but if I do that, I’ll never get this thing posted so I’m just going to jump in. Background can come later. My issue is that I want to lose weight. I’m about 15-20 pounds away from where I want to be. I’m not overweight per se but I’m definitely squishy. Here’s the thing though: I’ve had this goal for basically 10 years. I’ve been as low as 116 after a nasty stomach bug but tended to hang out around 122-124 for a long time. Now I’ve crept up to 130 and it’s sticking around. I’ve modified what I eat…kind of. I eat a WFPB diet, that’s not the issue. I do like sweets and I do like sauces so I think I’ve been indulging in them too much. Annnnnnd I think I have issues around food. Like a lot of people. But I’ve been guilty of thinking that I don’t have to make measurable changes to make measurable change. And I think I have other issues with goal setting that I’m going to explore. I’ve decided to make this blog my accountability. I want to see change in my body and for now that’s going to be a number. I know that what we weigh isn’t the be all end all of health. But I eat really healthy, just probably too much of it, KWIM? I’m going to be exploring my relationship with food, my struggles, my successes and I’m going to be really honest, in a way I haven’t been before.
Plant powered RN is still going to be a thing but I’m going to direct this power internally for a bit. I’ll post about what I’m eating, what I’m thinking about, really good food I’m eating, exercise I am doing (once my ankle heals), all that fun stuff. I hope it’ll inspire and motivate anyone who happens to find their way here.
