Losing Weight

I have been vegan for a year, and in that time I have lost fifteen pounds. I feel great, look great and know what I'm doing is healthy, ethical, and safe for the environment. But now I could actually stand to gain some weight. The media would do everyone a favor if they would stop promoting thin as the only desirable attribute of a human being. I got so caught up in trying to look like Gwyneth Paltrow, Lara Flynn Boyle, or Calista Flockhart that instead of focusing my skills and ambition on a beneficial hobby, talent, or organization, I spent a year focusing just on my weight. Now I'm busy with getting a job. That's not very easy because of where I live, but at least I'm doing something besides constantly worrying about how much I weigh or believing that losing weight will make me a better person.
