Weight Loss

I came across this post a few days ago from Steph at The Coexist Cafe: The Coexist Cafe: Vegetarians and Weight Loss.  Because one of the main reason that Dan (yes this was all Dan's idea) was interested in us trying a vegetarian / pescetarian diet was for health reason and mainly weight loss, I found Steph's post to be a great help to me.  Therefore, wanted to share it so it may help others that might also be interested in trying to change things up a bit.

Thus far, I haven't lost any weight (I was down three, then up two, then down one and back and forth for the last 3 weeks), but Steph provides some great information that will hopefully help me get a better grasp on what we need to do to create not only meat-free meals, but also healthy and figure friendly.  The main thing I have noticed in our first 21 or so days as pescetarians is that I feel better. That's it.. I just feel physically improved.  I'm not talking muscles or weight or tone or joints, just over-all.  How else can I explain it?... hmmmm....  You know how when you eat a big meal and you've probably eaten just a little more than you should have and you start feeling like sh*t kind of instantly?  The ones where you just want to lay down, or least undo your pants?  Yeah - I don't have that.  I'm still eating well and I am full (probably too full), but I don't feel bad.  I don't know.. maybe its just me.

So anyway, wanted to share Steph's post (yes, partly so I could easily refer to it myself).  Thank you Steph.  I've just stumbled upon your site recently and enjoy it greatly.  I've already leaned a lot from you in the past few weeks and look forward to more!

Hey there, Jesi! Thanks for the shout-out! :) I'm glad you found the post to be helpful, and that you're learning a lot!

I was pescetarian for a long time, too; actually, my husband Matt convinced me to go omni for a couple years, then I went pesce, and now back to veg. It's been quite a transition, and I'll fully admit there are times when I miss shrimp. I'm glad you're feeling an improvement as a pescetarian, that's wonderful!

Anyway, just wanted to let you know that I stopped by and will be following you. :) Good luck on your foodie journey!
