I lost a bunch of weight when I went vegan as well - from about 138 to 128. Then a few months ago, I went on a "no added sugar" kick for a while, as well as missing a bunch of lunches but having healthy breakfasts around 10 am and a good dinner. I went down to 118. I was happy with this but my husband thought I was too skinny (I'm 5'6") and teased me about it. So I started eating some sweets and now I'm right in the middle at 124, and quite happy about it.
I eat more grains than I'd like and we're working on that. Unfortunately for the fruit angle, I was just diagnosed with IC (Interstitial Cystitis), a bladder disease which means I'm very reactive to acid, so I can't have much fruit. I can have apples, pears, and a few other low-acid fruits like blueberries. It also means no more vinegar or lemon juice on my salads
But back to the topic, cutting out those desserts REALLY helped those pounds. Everyone noticed. It's funny because I tried to do the same thing last year and couldn't make it. But this time, I didn't even try. I just didn't have dessert for a few nights, not on purpose, and then suddenly I realized that I didn't have that sweets craving any more. It was really nice. Now I'm eating some but I find that the sweet tooth is gone and often I don't have any dessert at all in the day. I also try to eat what fruits I can as dessert if I crave it. (Unfortunately there is this amazing baker who makes vegan bundt cakes...)
Now that I feel I'm at an idea weight, I have to start working on fitness in terms of muscles. I have wide hips/pelvis, but when I have a baby, I really want to try natural childbirth, and I want to get myself in the best shape as possible for both baby and me. Also, because I have so many health problems, I feel that the better shape I'm in, the less sick I'll be, which is better, especially because many of my medications can't be taken when pregnant.
I think that doing a lot of raw will really help your weight loss. Good luck with it!
