progress : )

Almost one week and I’m already seeing progress!

Here is a graph showing my weight loss progress:

It’s amazing how much different I feel since giving up animal products. I really love it so far.

I was surprised to find how much I was able to find at my local Kroger. Being Vegan isn’t as hard as I thought it would be…

I came across this film the other day…

“The feature film Forks Over Knives examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods.”
