going veggie, slimmer this summer, fitblogger, and plus size challenges

that's me
a vegetarian

ok.. well.. one in training :)

I started Saturday..
it's been kinda easy so far.
not too many struggles..

other than wanting to cook that big ol turkey I've got in the freezer..

but.. I've done pretty well so far.
I have not even "needed" to eat anything with meat in it.
I made spaghetti last night.. and didn't even miss it.

I've stocked up on beans, tons and tons of veggies and lots of fruit to keep me happy.
I am able to stick to my Weight Watcher's plan easily and haven't felt deprived so far.

any suggestions or recipes?
I'm not big on tofu or anything weird.. just simple :)

so my goal this week.. for week 10 (seriously.. it's almost over) of fitblogger 's mytrak challenge.. is to continue with the healthy vegetarian alternative plan :)
simple as that..

I am also joining in on Debbi's Slimmer this summer challenge..

in addition to this vegetarian goal.. I am going to drink alllll my water.. and follow my WW's plan..
too much life may make it difficult to add much more right now.. I just have to take it a day at a time :)

aaaannd.. if that wasn't enough to keep me motivated..
let's join in the fun with plus size bloggers and their bye bye booties challenge..
to lose 15 pounds in 12 weeks..

did I need to remind you how competitive I am?
didn't think so..

not to mention the fact.. that I can't be left out lol..

so..let's get healthy!

Here is a link to all my vegetarian meals on my blog. I LOVE them. I don't miss meat on spaghetti either and I'm all about simple too!

I'm working on a menu now to go meatless. It's a little harder than I thought. I'm checking out Debbie's link above!!

I find that when I'm making a concentrated effort to lose weight, I naturally gravitate toward a vegetarian lifestyle. That's so weird for me because I grew up swearing I could never be a vegetarian. I don't really do potatoes, but I love steaming/grilling sweet potatoes. I have them plain all the time (with a little oil for grilling when I do it that way). Chickpeas can be a great addition to change things up, but only if your body is carb-friendly.
