Hi everyone. My name is Heather. I am married with 4 kids. I am 31 years old.
I have been a meat eater all of my life. Meat, junk food, soda, etc, etc. Just generally not healthy whatsoever. But I was always very thin, until I had my second child. Then I gained 70 or so pounds, 55 of which I still have! And that child is 9 now
So in my quest to find a way to eat better and get healthy, I have been reading alot of the vegetarian websites. I have thought about it before. But the desire for meat usually won out over the thought of the poor animals. But as I get older that is changing. I have been reading articles online about the treatment of animals being used for food and it makes me ill. I cannot bring myself to watch any videos about it. I want to, but I know once I do, I will never eat meat again. Which is what I want, but not. If that makes any sense. I really like the taste of meat. I wouldn't say love, but I do enjoy a nice steak. Which will be the hardest to give up! I don't eat any fish...YUCK! I am not a big fast food person anymore. I used to love McDonalds until I watched SuperSize Me. Now even the smell of the place makes me phsyically ill. Which is why I have not watched any of these animal treatment videos yet. Because that will seal the deal. Have I talked myself in circles yet.
I already cannot eat eggs because of the whole baby chick thing. The thought that a baby chick could be in that egg heebees me out. I am weird I know. The egg thing is recent.
My husband is a definite meat eater. Although he wasn't when I met him. He hardly ate any meat at all. I converted him! LOL. So he won't be giving it up. Neither will the kids. But hubby fully supports me in anything I do.
My main reason for doing it would be health. I am not healthy whatsoever and it really bothers me. I am only 31 and I shouldn't be this unfit, out of shape, and sluggish.
Well, that is it. I am surprised if anyone got this far without getting a headache!
Nice to meet you all
