I was MelanieC, but I wanted to use another name so I had my old one de-activated and thought I'd re-introduce myself.
I became a vegetarian on November 10, 2009 and I've been working on being vegan for a while (trying out non-dairy alternatives, giving up eggs, etc) and felt ready to make a more serious commitment 3 weeks ago on May 10, 2010. What's very strange and I didn't do this on purpose, nor did I notice till I just wrote it out is that I did that on the 6 month mark. I've been a little scared to say officially that I made the jump to vegan, but now that I've been doing this for 3 weeks I feel so much more confident about it and have done really well. It's been easier than I thought and I don't feel deprived at all.
