    Re: Let's Get Fit and Healthy Together!

    Thought I'd do a random update:
    Weight this time last year: 163
    Now: 137
    According to my last doctor's visit I'm about 5'5 (not 5'3 as I thought), so that means my BMI is 22.8, down from 27.2. :)...

    Weight-loss folks:
    I've recently added a LOT of fresh fruit to my diet. Think 50% fruit, 30% vegs, and 20% grains. I'm averaging about 1300 calories a day, but am rarely hungry. Maybe this will help...

    Re: Getting a pudge!

    You might be losing muscle and gaining fat. Your weight could stay the same but the pudge would build up.
    And yes, eating a lot of calories, even vegan ones, will cause you to gain weight.
