i don't quite remember the exact day i last ate an animal product but i know it was last november. i've decided to make my anniversary thanksgiving as it seems very fitting for this day. so, 1 year vegan as of today.<br>
i can't believe it's been this long already. time just flew by and i feel so at ease navigating life almost 100% of the time. i don't miss anything and not having dairy has made me feel so much better overall.<br>
i fully credit 2 places for giving me the tools to finally change. veggieboards is one and i'm so thankful for all the advice and information i find here. susan's <a href="http://blog.fatfreevegan.com/" target="_blank">fat free vegan blog</a> is the other. her recipes work really well for me and are easy to follow. some of you might have noticed i reference her a lot and this is why. without that site i don't know if i'd have been able to make the switch so easily and i don't know if i'd still be vegan now <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

That's so amazing, congratulations! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rockon.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rockon:"><br><br>
And I know exactly what you mean, places like VB and other vegan sites and blogs helped SO much when I was transitioning. It is a big change and perspective shift, it's good to have a community of people to talk to who understand <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

That's excellent, congratulations! I also don't remember the exact date I went vegan, I just know it was around August '09. Strangely enough I do remember the last time I ate meat, almost exactly 5 years before that!

Congratulations. It has only been 9 weeks for me and I am loving the difference no dairy is making.
