Hi everyone, I'm Caitlyn. Hm, this is really the only Vegetarian/Vegen forum I've ever seen! And I've been looking around for one, but maybe I just didn't look hard enough. Haha. Hm, let's see, I've been vegetarian for abour 6-7 months, I know, not very long, but I'm trying my best. The thing that got be to start being Vegetarian was that I didn't eat a real lot of meat to begin with, it wasn't that good, plus, my mom began randomly ordering me these PETA magizines. I have NO clue why though, she's not even a vegetarian! So I saw all the horrible things being done to animals and man, I felt BAD. And from that day forward I've been vegetarian. And I have to say, it's done WONDERS for my body. I think I've lost up to twenty pounds, counting all the exercising I do plus eating healthier. It's great.

What else? I'm an aspiring writer. I love to write. I'm actually working on a short story at this moment. Haha. My favorite book/movie is The Outsiders. Wonderful movie, let me tell you. If you haven't seen it, you must! Well, I hope I can make some friends here, nice to meet you all!

PS: I'm from Seabrook, TX, eh, the weather is pretty crappy, but it's okay.

Hi! Your post sounded similar to me, except I didnt see any PETA magazines! Ive only been veggie for 5 weeks and like you, didnt eat lots of meat prior. Ive been enjoying cooking different vegetarian meals and even my husband has been eating them!!!

Anyhow, welcome to VB!!
