I was a strict vegan (dude, I didn't even eat refined sugars) for a year before regressing back to ovo-lacto last September. I still eat (ate) vegan the majority of the time, but would occasionally eat cheese, and I wasn't very picky about baked goods (containing eggs or diary), either. Of course, I wouldn't ever sit down and actually EAT an egg, or DRINK a glass of milk- but I would eat them in things. You know what I'm talking about. Anyway, last night I had this brilliant idea to make a milkshake. Well, I'm currently visiting my parents for the weekend and they were (obviously) without soymilk or Soy Delicious. So I got out the skimmed milk and ice cream and went to work.

I was okay with the ice cream but as soon as I opened up that carton of milk I felt my stomach turn. I haven't so much as looked at cow's milk in almost two years- and even growing up as an omnivore I was never a fan of it. It is so foul looking and smelling; ugh.

Anyway, in the end I ended up forcing the shake down (I HATE wasting food and I was the only person up in the house), and feeling horribly nauseous afterward . This event has forced me to start, once again, realizing the connection between milk and cheese, milk and ice cream, milk and butter, etc. Because I want nothing to do with milk, I don't see why I should want anything to do with other dairy products. I have decided that it is time to end my diet of convinience and once again head in the direction in which I know will end my guilt and will allow me to feel better about myself. I may not be ready to fully cut out refined sugars, again- but I am ready to completely cut out diary and eggs. I've done it before, but will hopefully stick to it this time around. Wish me luck!

I totally understand. A few little slips and it all seems to slide away. But the guilt and making the connection helps to bring you back to what you know is true.

I think re-reading books and articles that originally turned you onto veganism helps a lot ... it may even help to keep someone from sliding in the first place. Ultimately it is my favorite vegan cookbooks and recipes that bring me back in line.

Good luck. I know you can do it stellar26!

Don't beat yourself up. It's not worth it. Half the fun of reaching the destination is the journey.

Forget the past; it's done now. The present is what's important. Good luck.
