Hi Everyone! My name is Kerri and I am so excited to be here!!! I am married, have a daughter and 2 four legged kids (pups). I have been vegetarian for many years. I have attempted to go vegan quite a few times without success. Over the years I have struggled with my weight and I have tried most diets while still following a vegetarian way of eating. About 4 months ago I made the decision to go whole food plant-based. I wanted to find a heathy way of eating that was a lifestyle – not a diet. In the beginning, I was doing well with my eating but more recently I have either been eating junk vegan food or foods such as cheese, mayonnaise, and sweets. I love eating plant-based and if I had someone to prepare the food for me I’d do fantastic! The prep is what causes me the most problems. I find it to be such a chore! I love when it is lunchtime and I realize I have healthy leftovers! (A WFPB personal chef is top on my list if I ever win the lottery!) Two other challenges that I face are; I am an emotional eater and my husband and daughter do not want to give up unhealthy foods, so they are in my cupboards. I know what I’m supposed to eat and what I’m not but I get lazy. There is no other word for it! I have joined FB groups and have read many books and articles but nothing has worked so far. I am looking forward to the support in this group and I am hoping this will help me get over the final hump and I will succeed at making WFPB my way of eating!
