Am I Eating Too Much For Long Term Weight Loss?

Hello ^_^,So I just started this lifestyle a week ago. To be honest, my initial motivation for coming on this lifestyle is for weight loss in the long term. I know... it's superficial, but I'm just…Continue

I've been struggling to lose weight on several different diets since 2008. My diets barely qualify as diets really, I was just torturing myself. There were days when I drank a cup of coffee and exercised for 5 hours. Then few months down the road, I would binge and purge, which led to extreme weight gain in a short amount of time. The stress from getting on the scale every morning caused even worse eating habits and depression. I don't know why, but I didn't think to connect the actual substance of what I was eating to my depression. I thought it was just about the weight that stressed me out. I have decided to make this change after this spring break. I was depressed to the point of considering suicide. I hit rock bottom, and I scared a lot of people doing so. I am committed to change. I want to end this vicious cycle of dissatisfaction in myself. I want to love myself, take care of myself, and focus on other goals that are important to me. Also, I want to have the convenience in my heart and body to love others.

Progress: [vegan-lifestyle since March 18, 2014]

Posted on April 9, 2014 at 10:43pm 5 Comments

Today is April 9, 2014, and the 22nd day of being on a vegan-lifestyle. 

I know that no one on 30 Bananas a Day knows me personally, so I would like to share a little bit about myself, and hopefully encourage you, if you are a newcomer like me, to continue on in this lifestyle.

I am the prime example of someone who must have instant gratification. That's why every summer for about 3-4 years, I went on crazy diets and exercise regimes. I would go 2 weeks on one…


2 weeks

Here's an update:

After only two weeks, I feel as if I have been freed from a trap that I have been stuck in for 6 years. I even uttered the words, I haven't been so happy and satisfied with myself in years. Who knew that something as simple as what you put in your mouth could make such a difference. 

I'm pretty in concerned about my weight now. I feel so great that I can careless. To be honest, I do want to lose weight, but it's not on my mind 24/7 as it used to be. I…


Day 1: I've been [needing] it.

2. I am a Korean-American.

3. I joined the lifestyle on my 22nd birthday, March 18, 2014. 

My blog posts will mainly be a way of keeping track my journey on this lifestyle, but if something I say catches your eye, I'm open arms for dialogue. ^_^

My story:

It's nothing new. In 2008 I started thoughtless diets.…
