Well, my journey is almost at an end. I turn 40 tomorrow, and that will officially end my 10-month vegan challenge.

For the next two days, I plan on enjoying a few of my previous favorite foods, such as: pizza, milk chocolate, cheesecake, and a hamburger.

Hopefully I won’t get too sick, but regardless, on Monday, I will again set aside animal products in favor of my new favorite way to eat: plant style!

I don’t care how tasty that cheesecake is….nothing is as rewarding as the feeling of good health!

After this weekend, I hope to have some current pictures of me to post on my blog. It will be fun to see the “before & after” pictures side by side! 🙂

See you all then!

Jackie

    YAYAYAYYY!!!!! 10 months was really starting to feel like a long time! 🙂 I’m so proud of us for sticking it out!! Like you, I’m considering partaking in some cheesy pizza soon, and maybe some prime rib from the Turtle Club, lol! I really feel like a changed person though, and plan on continuing to eat a plant based diet. Thanks again for challenging me to try this! Can’t wait to see your pictures. Have a great birthday!!!

      Wow Becky! I didn’t realize you had stuck it out this whole time. I am AWED!!! Talk about amazing….YOU are truly amazing! I can’t wait to hear all about it! About the “after party”……one word of caution…..take it slow! Don’t eat a whole steak right at first. Your system won’t be able to handle it, and you will be in agony! Keep me posted! 🙂

        Agony? Really? Now I’m a little worried. Was expecting a feeling in my stomach like I’d eaten a lead weight.
