Going vegan

I started a "going Vegan" page on Facebook
Where you can watch me trying but not always succeeding to transition. The struggle is real!

I went vegetarian when I was 6 years old. But it wasn't really vegetarian. I went pescatarian. We ate fish about once a month for about two years. So I actually went vegetarian when I was 8 but I really feel like I went veg at age 6 because that's when I declared I wasn't eating animals anymore. Then when I was about 13 I went vegan. I stayed vegan for about a year. I finally caved and went back to being vegetarian, mostly because of peer pressure but also because time was different then. There wasn't the internet and I didn't know any other vegans my age. Also, there weren't very many specialty vegan products and none were actually labeled vegan, they were just "accidentally vegan." Finally I went vegan again when I was 30 years old. My husband and I did it together. We started by being vegan only at home and vegetarian when out to eat at restaurants. Then we took a weekend trip and decided to try to be vegan the whole trip. We were successful and so when we came home we declared ourselves vegan and stopped eating cheese or eggs at restaurants. There were a couple accidents and slip-ups in that first year but we navigated it OK. At this point we've been vegan for about 10 years

I have started taking vegan diet quite seriously for last 3-4 months, and I have felt much better improvement in my health and digestion. Earlier I had a flatulence problem and always felt uneasiness in my stomach , but now I feel quite lighter and better.
