    How rewarding it is to see a graph of your progress!!!

    Need motivation? Get a smart scale like WiThings that plots your weight and bodyfat percentage. The WiThings scale in particular is very useful because ***you don't need to open an app to see a graph of your progress***. It tells you right on the scale while you are weighing yourself! See the difference in weight between today and yesterday, which is not even the most useful part, since water weight and the time you ate the previous night could throw things off. It plots the last 5 days on the scale's display so you can see if it is a *real trend* or just an anomaly for that day.

    What no one tells you in advance: there's a lot of farting involved with eating whole foods

    I went vegan and mainly plant based about 2 months ago, and lemme tell ya... if I don't develop a tolerance to these legumes soon, I'm afraid I may have to rent my butt out to the horns section of the Philharmonic.

    If it was just farting, I'd eat them. It's the pain and cramping and, ah, mess, that keeps them out of my diet.

    No one said (more like warned!) me that people would want to “feel” you. I’m not a touchy feely person, and this is making me extremely uncomfortable. And it’s coming from both sexes. It’s not sexual, it seems to be curiosity, it comes when I’m least expecting it so I can’t dodge, and it freaking creeps me out.

    I feel like one of those Stretch Armstrong toys.

    This happens way too often

    Since I’ve lost 20 pounds, my alcohol tolerance has changed dramatically. The other night I had two light beers and two whiskies and the next day I had the hangover I would have had from ten drinks before I lost the weight. Beyond just my body being smaller, I think part of it is that I stopped drinking at home since I’ve been dieting...and honestly, I don’t miss it at all!

    Yes to the low alcohol tolerance! At least it saves money, but I really have to be vigilant with eating some food and drinking water if I have even just one drink! The hangovers are miserable.

    Glad to see there's another vegan here. I've been vegan a while now and it has really helped with my overall wellbeing and weight maintenance. However the body does indeed go through a period of intestinal adjustment. Don't worry it does settle down after a while.

    Hello, and nice to meet you! Yes, the gas orchestra has been playing a little more on the "ritenuto" side now, so it's all good! Thanks!

    One thing I will state for certain: when done right, vegan and/or plant-based eating can work wonders for many people! I find it to be great!
