Not all vegetarians are string beans (har har) and some of us need a little help. There is no typical person that gets weight loss surgery, but it is a little challenging to stick with the bariatric diets when you are a vegetarian or a vegan. This is my journey as the gastric vegan and sometimes vegetarian.
What is this a picture of?? This is me just seconds after crossing the finish line for my very first road race. Not a 5K but a whole 5 miles!! I finished at 1 hour and 20 minutes. Not bad for someone that weighs 238 pounds!! (I gained a few during my 3 day carb loading binge) When I finished the run my Nike+ monitor showed that I burned 929 calories!! Wow!! I enjoyed my run so much and I feel super proud that I was able to complete it. I'm signed up for 2 5K races this summer and I can't wait to improve on my per mile pace!
