New! Recently decided to go vegan!

My name is MamiMo and today is my first day to be vegan. I'm excited because I like to feel different!

Well whatever your reason is, welcome to the world of veganism! I hope it ends up being as great of a change for you as it has been for me.

Yeah, often it comes with being vegan. Family and friends will try to convince you you will get sick and die without meat/dairy/eggs. Just let it go over your head. Once you share some awesome vegan dishes with them and get into the groove of your lifestyle and they see you aren't getting sick they will calm down. It took my family and friends a while to come around but they did.

You have more guts than I did. I chose to not tell anyone for a solid month after I went vegan before "coming out" so I could adjust to the changes and learn all I could without a lot of nagging and arguing going on from others. My husband always just eats what I put in front of him and I was making him vegan dinners every night (we make our own lunches and breakfasts for the most part) and he had no clue lol.

My usual answer: I have never heard a convincing reason to eat meat.
