have a Nutty Banana Smoothie almost every work morning. It's so delicious and I'm not really a shake person - I don't even like bananas. Lol. The recipe is: 1 cup of almond milk or coconut milk, 1 cup ice, 1/2 frozen banana, 1 tbsp of almond butter, 1 scoop vanilla protein powder. I have dietary restrictions (no wheat, sugar, or dairy), so I can only have plant-based or vegan protein powders. I'm currently using Vega Protein & Greens which is pretty tasty. I was using Garden of Life Organic Greend and Protein Powder - Raw Protein with Probiotics/Enzymes. It isn't as good as the Vega, but it's much gentler on my stomach.

Macy - I feel like you are writing my story. I was always the really skinny one...until now. I too was thin growing up and even after I had 3 children. I enjoyed eating well and exercised a lot (I even taught group exercises classes for fun). Over the last five years, I have slowly gained weight. I now weigh 155, my highest weight ever. I sit all day with my job, have turned to quick meals (not always the healthiest), and I miss workouts because I am making excuses that I am too busy with family demands or tired. This craziest needs to stop as I know I can do better and I want to feel better physically. I am ready take control of my health. Thanks for sharing your story. I am cheering for you to feel good mentally and physically!

Thank you for sharing your story. We'll all be in this together. Looking forward to all of our progress. My only tip...meal prep. That will make the difference.
