What a year it's been! In addition to making a bazillion new friends here on VB ( ), I've lost about 25 lbs (lost 35, gained back 10), and (if peta is to be believed) I've spared 91 animals an unwelcome trip to my stomach (something we both feel good about).

However, I don't think I could have done it without the continued support of my friends here. If it weren't for VB, I would have been absolutely alone in my veg*nism for the entire year. I really doubt I could have stayed enthused enough, and believed in my ability to stay vegan, if it weren't for the support of people here, and the examples set by some of the long term veg*ns. As in "if so and so has been vegan for 10 years, then I can do this." That kind of reinforcement is so important, in the face of all the anti-veg "evidence" that being vegan or vegetarian is bad for you, etc.

IOW, this place has been key to my success as a vegan, and I just wanted you all to share in some of the credit, and to give you all a well-earned "Thank You".

Viva VB!

The Rev

Congratulations! This is fantastic. You're such a gracious person and giving that I think you have gotten the best out of VB. I'm glad the support pushed you through!

Good for you, Rev!!

This board has helped keep me on the straight and narrow too and also made me a healthier veg*n.

So far, 455 animals NOT served!

WOW! Thats so great! It's people like you, sir, who inspire the rest of us in our journey...

I certainly have a long ways to go to reach that "vegan-for-a-year" status, but I agree, the people I've met here have absoluteloy been an inspiration and support to me!!

Happy VBversiary!

Wooohooo!!! I wonder--if married couples allegedly have more sex around their first anniversary to celebrate, what do veg*ns do around their first veg*nniversary? Eat more plant foods?

Q: How many poets does it take to change a light bulb? A: to change the bulb, 1000 to say it's already been done.

I know I am still a new member and many people are still just getting to know me, but I have to echo those thoughts. The support here is incredible.
