  1. I just became a follower of your blog today. It’s interesting to hear about how someone else became a vegetarian. I stopped eating red meat about a year and a half ago after reading “In Defense of Food”, and last spring a friend loaned me “Skinny Bitch”. I stopped eating meat that day and haven’t looked back.

    I am amazed at how many times I’ve been asked if I get enough protein. I officially became a runner last year after recovering from a lateral release in my left knee in February. I was never fat, but my weight was up around 150-155 (I am tall 5’8.5″), but that was about what I weighed when I had my twin girls in 2000. Weight always seemed like a battle to me, one day I would be fine, the next my clothes would be too tight by the end of the day.

    Well after about 9 months of no meat, I have lost about 25 lbs, have trained for and ran my first half marathon and am now in the best shape of my life. I had also been diagnosed with high cholesterol and at 36 I vowed to not be on meds that would damage my liver. I’ve gotten my cholesterol back under 200.

    Dealing with my family has been difficult, my husband is fine with it all but I have two sisters that think it’s weird that I don’t eat meat.

    I look forward to reading your blog. It’s nice to find like minded people out there!

  2. Hi Becky,
    Thanks so much for sharing your story! It’s wonderful that you have lost weight and have taken control of your cholesterol!
    I don’t hear enough success stories πŸ™‚ It’s great that your husband supports your decision, and maybe your sisters will come around? Even if they don’t understand your decision, the main thing is that they respect it.
    Great job on the half-marathon! You go girl πŸ˜€ Keep up the running, and thank you so much for reading!
    Stacey
