I am recommending a book - besides Kim's and my book (which by the way is called It's Not Rocket Science: 52 Resolutions - in case you haven't bought it at http://www.fiftytworesolutions.com.) The other book I am recommending is Main Street Vegan: Everything You Need to Know to Eat Healthfully and Live Compassionately in the Real World by Victoria Moran.
Remember also that exercise not only helps you lose weight - it releases key anti-stress hormones and chemicals and will make you feel much better. Occasionally, like this week, I get off the exercise track and consequently, feel awful. Our bodies NEED exercise to not only burn calories but also to help us think clearly and combat stress. Next time you have a choice between being a couch potato and going to exercise - choose to exercise. You will not regret it!!
