Hi Everyone!

My name is Meg. I used to use this site under a different account a few years ago, but I decided to start fresh with all of the "ups and downs" that have occurred over time.

Current Stats:
Age: 26
Height: 5'5"
HW: 263lb
CW: 224lb
GW: 125lb

I started using MFP again mid-June, and I'm at the point now where I would love to start connecting with more of you!

I found out last year that I am Type 2 Diabetic. I got on board with being healthy for about 2 weeks before I fell off the wagon again. I'm fully committed to this lifestyle change this time around! I recently decided to become vegan (15 days in) and I'm loving it so far. Anyone else out there vegan? I'd love to see what you're all eating and maybe share some recipes! I will also tell you that with no medication, exercising, and a plant-based diet, my blood sugar levels have dropped from the 500's to the mid-100's on their own. So THAT is progress!

I live on Long Island, so it would also be really cool to connect with some locals on here as well! Feel free to add me! I'll add you as well. Really just looking for like-minded people to share food, work-outs, progress, etc. with.

Much love <3

    Hi!!! My name is Bethany
    I'm vegan too! I haven't met too many others on here. I've been vegan for just over a year. I go to school in upstate NY, so still pretty far away haha. My go-to weight loss foods being vegan are beans, more beans, tons of frozen veggies (frozen cause they're way cheaper) and rice cause it's so filling. Personally, i'm just trying to do more whole foods and less processed junk.
    Anyway, nice to meet you!
