Hi gracelove, Welcome to VB <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
Are you new to vegetarianism? I think that you will find that you loose weight over time by just being vegetarian.<br><br><br><br>
If you want to speed the process try to go vegan for a while.<br><br><br><br>
But why do you want to loose weight ? Are you sure you are over weight ?

I would have to disagree with that. Maybe with veganism but not necessarily with vegetarianism. You still have to watch what you eat.

Hi, 1veg! yep. I am over 200lbs and I am only 5'6". I need to lose about 70lbs, believe it or not. I don't look it to people that know me, but I need to lose weight for health reasons for sure!

I've gained weight, but I eat what I want and haven't been exercising. Of course, those five pounds I gained merely put me into the "average" weight category for my height, and I've been stable at this weight for several months now. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I've lost 11 pounds since becoming a vegetarian.. 4 months. For the first one and a half months I was on a calorie reduced diet (with normal dairy intake) but I got sick of it and am eating normally now (however I eat very little dairy now, microscopic amounts actually!), and am still losing weight. Welcome!
