Patience = Rewards

Posted by Amy Ostroff on Monday, June 4, 2012,
It's been a while since Jonny or I have posted, but please have no fear... we are still on a relatively righteous eating path, just really busy.  I thought I'd post from his blog so more people will see it.

We had a wonderful day today, but it didn't seem like it would be that way from the way it started.  

I had been meaning to try the vegan brunch at 7165 Lounge ever since Vance Lemkuhl wrote about it in his Daily News column in February.  Jonny and Charlie were both excited when I told them ...

75 Days...50 pounds!

Posted by Jonny V on Sunday, October 16, 2011,

Wednesday, October 12, Philadelphia Flyers Ice
Hockey,
Opening Night. Look closely, the little
guy in the orange/
black unitard is my 10 year old Charlie.

That's right, the Big Sexy is down 50 pounds in only 75 days. I have stuffed my pie hole with anything vegan I choose, exercised, and even with a couple of the bumps I've had in the past few weeks with my health...I'm leaner.....sexier...and back to exercising, feeling energized, loving my food and happy as shit to be healthy and thinner.

When we don't feel well, there's usually little that we can do to avoid the low grade fever, sore throat, cough.

The Plan

I've never felt better than I have since I started this journey....never. My first hospital admission last month turned out to be a weird muscle tear that healed in a fraction of the time they projected it would take.

Deja Vu All Over Again... Again

Posted by Jonny O on Sunday, October 2, 2011,


I'm sorry I disappeared. I'm embarrassed, emasculated even, to tell all of you that I've been admitted to the hospital again. I'm so upset I haven't even told my closest friends, siblings, etc. I guess this is the easiest way to just tell everyone.

Before this past month, I was in second grade the last time I was admitted to a hospital.

Last weekend, I took my beloved Uncle with me to see my daughter play field hockey, to be with her and to give him a tour of Charlottesville, VA, one of my ...
