Day 7 Weigh-In

Hubby got home late last night after a birthday party feast….of grilled veggies! He even declined having the chocolate mousse birthday cake even though he had the option to have whatever he wanted! Well, then again, I did tell him no cheese, dairy or meat when he left so maybe I didn’t give him much of an option. He said it was quite hard to do all that at a Mexican restaurant. He did enjoy a lot of the chips and salsa.  I’m so proud of him! 

It wasn’t quite fair for him to do a weigh in after a huge meal. I was also drained by the time he got home and went to bed, though I did do my weigh in…after my vegan cupcake! So the verdict. I have lost 2-3 pounds and my hubby lost 1-2 pounds. It varies depending on the time of day. Let’s see if the scale continues to go down in the coming weeks. I have heard of people who gain weight when they go vegetarian/vegan because they eat so much of the good stuff. 

This week, I will try to incorporate some exercise once I feel back to my old self. I held up well yesterday until the end of the day. I had a huge headache and was so drained I was pretty much knocked out after 8pm. 

Looking forward to trying the pancake recipe for breakfast this morning and off to shopping for week 2!

  1. Keep on keeping on! I’m pretty impressed with your husbands restraint. It is hard to know how food is cooked in restaurants. I went to a Mexican restaurant recently and the menu had an asterisk and said they can serve vegan beans and rice with meal upon request. I think a lot of place cook with lard though.

    • Oh yes. He brought home leftover veggies and we had it for lunch today. I had a few bites and while it was good, I could see the grease and oil so it was less appetizing. I ended up finishing leftover salad from last night’s dinner. That was more refreshing.

  2. I find that weighing in the morning gives you a consistent number because you usually don’t have anything left in your stomach to throw it off. 6 Weeks in now and I’m consistently 10 pounds lighter than when I started, which is an awesome bonus because I wasn’t doing it for the weight. 🙂
