As of today I have been a vegan for one month! I didnt have any slip ups (that were my fault). Although we went to Tijuana Flats and they neglected to mention that they put cheese on everything. But after I realized it they remade mine for me. Yay!

Good for you!

I am pretty proud. I have been saying for at least two years "I could never be vegan, I like cheese too much." And it hasnt even been that hard!! I have had cravings, but they werent so strong that I couldnt say no. When I get a craving for something then I will just go and eat something like vegan junk food. I keep some So Delicious ice cream on hand for those emergencies (and also any other time of the day).



I think it was also a lot easier for me too because I gave up eggs two years ago, and have been reading ingredient lists to check for them for at least that long. I think if I had to give up eggs/cheese/trace ingredients all in one shot it would have been somewhat overwhelming.



Now my next goal is to give up soda. That will be more difficult I suspect than the dairy.

No not a lot of difference in my health. I was hoping for some weight loss, but I eat too much junk for that too happen. Also I may have a teeny problem with portion sizes. I think its way too soon to see any health problems. Especially since i have been lacto veggie for years, and for awhile I was only eating minimal amounts of dairy.
