I thought I would use this post to brag on my hubby a little and to tell you all a wonderful success story. Several years ago, my husband began to develop some chronic medical issues due to an accident he was involved in, in 1996. What started as a few minor problems, grew into major issues partly due to the medications he was having to take. One of his main struggles was with his weight. Between not being able to exercise and taking prescriptions that cause weight gain, he had put on about 50 or 60 lbs. We had tried sooooo many things to bring his weight down, but we were told by the doctors that until he came off all of his meds and was able to begin a regular exercise routine, he would never lose the weight. This was very discouraging to both of us because it seemed as if it would take forever for him to come off even one of the medications completely. We were at a loss!!! Added weight equals added pain and more health issues (high blood pressure, cholesterol issues, etc...)
About a year ago, my 14 year old daughter made a decision to become a vegetarian- for animal rights reasons. ...
(I couldn't post the entire story due to the limited amount of characters -2000 I think-I can use for a post) To read the rest of the story, check out my vegan blog http://sointoveggies.blogspot.com/
Thanks for the blog! You truly are an amazing family! It's really hard when a family member who does something towards their health and doesn't get support from everybody. I've been flirting with being a vegetarian for the last 10 years or so and everybody in my family are total carnovoires so I either have to make 2 types of meals or just eat around theirs. I recently went vegan and I'm still making 2 types of meals. Doing not bad, I've been doing this for 3 weeks now, although the other day I had some fish for lunch, went to the wrong restaurant. Am back on the wagon now and feel much better.
