Two months ago when I went full vegan for health reasons and dedicated myself to exercising every day, I committed to reaching a healthy weight. I started at almost 210 pounds with a goal of 170. I have not weighed less than 190 in over a decade. Today I weighed in at my lowest so far, 179.7lbs. I am excited by my progress and being able to see my goal from here.
If you are afraid, angry, or both, I hope you find the courage and the will to act. If you want someone to talk to about your concerns or anger, feel free to contact me.
I have been struggling to share this; I am terrified. I am blessed with an abundance of privilege, especially living in a traditionally strongly Democratic leaning state. I am still afraid of what may happen in the coming months. I am angry, too, and am trying to channel both into action. I am fortunate to have the means to make non-trivial donations to support key Senate races. I am spending my afternoon calling my Senators.
