NOT Arch Nemesis... and looking for moto!

I am back on Spark so that I can find some motivation to get this weight off. I love this place!!! But the funny thing, my last blog was about my love for cheese. Since then I very quickly "got off" cheese. Actually all dairy, eggs and most meat.
Rewind to last year, my son has been a hardcore vegan for over 2 years. (No joke!) He would always tell me to try that lifestyle. So annoying that there was a point where I literally yelled... like screaming and hollering and tears, yelled at him. "NO BODY and I mean nobody can tell me I cannot eat cheese!!!!!! STOP with the Vegan!!!"
January 2017 labs came back with close to 300 cholesterol. BP was 178 / 100. GULP! I am only 45. I asked the doctor about about a plant based diet. PERFECT he said.
Fast forward to today... I have learned a TON about this diet and you would not believe how my digestive system has changed. It is better than it has been in 30 years. I quickly lost 11 pounds and started to move more.
I have learned so much that I now know how to substitute bad junk food, for Vegan bad junk food.... and some pounds were added on. Not all, but damn! Really?
I am not going back to eating cheese, dairy and meat, because I literally feel healthier than ever, despite my weight. Looking for motivation to continue to move forward and not continue to move backward as I have just recently started.
