Hey! I'm obviously new here. Just wanted to say hi, check out the site, and hopefully after some more reading begin posting soon.

I have only been a vegetarian since November 2004, but I have really been committed and I plan on making this a life long choice. I do eat dairy: eggs, milk (I couldn't survive w/o milk!), yogurt, and cheese (another must have!). But I don't any ANY meat whatsoever.

I'm looking for support because I'm tired of everyone asking "So why don't you eat meat?" "That is wierd" "I could never do that!"

Drives me crazy, and I haven't even been doing it that long. I come from a very meat eating family and they all think I'm nuts, so I was needing to chat with some others who are doing the same as me to keep me sane and going!

I can't wait to learn of new things to eat and how to cook new things to add to what I already eat!!

Welcome to VB Jen! Glad to have you aboard and congrats on going veg!

Whether it's casual chatting or serious discussion you want, you came to the right place.

*pointing* We've got a nice big overstuffed easy chair over here, right across from it a comfy sofa, over there are a couple of beanbag chairs, and in the corner we've thrown down some really large pillows to sit on. There's a coffee table with plenty of tea, soy lattes and pita and hummus to go around, so get comfy and let's get posting!

Welcome to VB and thanks for making such a compassionate decision in your life. I haven't been veg for very long either. I don't want to pressure you at all, what you've already done is very commendable and you should be very proud but I have to tell you, I felt the same way about cow milk and cheese but now have found that I don't need or want them at all, so consider leaving it open as a possibility? Part of it was from what I've read about what's in the stuff, and part from what the poor animals go through............. but I digress.

You have made a wonderful step for yourself, the animals and the Earth we all share.

Welcome to VB.

Agggghhhhh why can't we just WELCOME our new members totally unconditionally without even the SLIGHTEST comments re: milk, cheese and whatever else they may eat?

Save that for a topic elsewhere on the boards!!

Anyway - that said:

Jen, hello!! Joining the others in saying I am thrilled you're joining us - I'm vegetarian, but not vegan - as are many on these boards. (My sister's name is Jen and she's also vegetarian - so I keep checking to see if by chance she's joined VB yet...).

LOVE the avatar.

Welcome to VB. As a moderator here I agree that people should leave the entreaties to drop milk and cheese out of this thread.

That said, tell these people in your life that if they think not eating meat is weird, tell them you recently met some REALLY strange people that don't even eat eggs and dairy...
