Meatless Man’s New Clothes

Days 314 & 315

Remember how I had to get a new suit a few months back?

Well, it only stood to reason that if a suit I bought just over a year ago was that loose on me then my regular clothes would be as well. And they soooooo were:

I donated them all to the Salvation Army. Just look at those piles of old clothes!

Hmmmm…what was I supposed to do with all that empty drawer space?

Why get some new threads of course!

And so in late June I went to Old Navy and Target:

And got new shirts and new pants that actually fit!!!!!


It feels good to be trim and now it my clothes fit better too!

Talk to you soon!

  1. Congratulations on the new wardrobe! You deserve it after a lot of hard work.

    I had a question I was hoping you could help me out with. Why are so many people unsupportive of vegetarianism? I started a strict diet about three months ago, and switched to full on vegetarian just two. Since then I have lost 15 lbs and I have not been exercising as much as I should yet. I find that my friends and siblings are very supportive but the people at work think I'm some sort of alien. At lunch, I am eating huge salads with all different kids of veggies, legumes, etc and if I use "dressing" it's salsa or hummus. I stop eating when I'm full. I don't understand why this makes people think I'm strange when I am in no way trying to convert them.

    Ok I have two questions. I have been a fan of you on facebook for some time but it just occurred to me that you have already been through my struggle and I should read your blog. From what I have gathered you have just made healthy vegetarian choices and tried to stick to a workout routine and your body changed itself. Is that right or is there any other advice you have for someone just starting out?

    Thanks in advance for your help,


  2. Dear Newbie,

    Sorry to take such a long time approving your comment, it has been a busy last few weeks.

    For someone just starting out being veggie I would say see your primary care physician and/or a dietician/nutritionist. Look at what you would have to cut out of you diet for vitamin and nutrients and see where your doctor recommends getting them from a non-animal source. And don't just take a look at cutting out meat, look at EVERYTHING you eat.

    Making healthier eating choices and sticking to a workout routine (5-7 times a week) was what changed my body. One has to decide to make the above changes in their life in the first place in order to bring about a lasting, healthy change.

    As for the lack of support for veggies, well...I want to address that in a near future entry. And I want to quote your comment to do it. I hope that is okay. :)


  3. Of course it's ok to quote anything I write in a future entry. Thank you for answering me.

    I do want to assure you that I am eating healthy across the board, no white flour (sprout bread is my friend), I cut out coffee until I didn't need it to wake up, I don't eat a lot of sugar until it is from fruit. My diet is almost completely vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, and a little veggie make believe meat here and there for kicks. I take calcium with vitamin d because I had cut out most dairy. So I am working on the healthy lasting change as well. The best part of all this is that it has not only helped me to go from 186 to 168 now (I'm 5'7") but I have clear skin, my mental state is better and I have much more energy.

    I want to eat healthy for life. I did this for myself and my future. I would like to take off another 20 pounds but that will come with time. I am glad that you have this blog out here, it is motivating when I don't feel like going for a run.

    Thank you,


  4. Dear Newbie,

    If you think this blog has helped you at all and could help others then please let them know about it. I am not a doctor, dietitian/nutritionist or exercise trainer. This is all coming from what I have discovered over the course of this past year. I want to inform people out there to an extent but, to me, it is a better aim to push them into experimenting with new eating habits and have them see for themselves the positive change.
