Lately, I've been feeling fairly insecure about my weight. When I was a freshmen in high school, my grandma passed away..making me very depressed and throughout the summer and the first half of my sophomore year, I gained soooo much weight. Now, my mom passed away a little less than a year ago, and I don't want to go to the same route...not only does it just depress me more, but it's very unhealthy. So, I need help. To lose weight at a nice pace, what shall I do? I've thought about cutting back on carbs (I eat soooo much pasta and bread, etc.) but I was wondering because I'm a vegan if this is such a good choice. Any tips or diet experiences that were successful would be great. And just so you know, I try and walk/jog/run at least 3 times a week with low impact weight lifting twice a week. I am fairly active, so I'm not so sure that's the problem. Thanks guys.
