I just realized that two of the most important anniversaries in my dietary and lifestyle-life are coming up...<br><br>
I always assumed that I first turned vegetarian in "mid-SEPTish" of 2005...I was recently going through some of my old blogs and have an "official date" of September 21st.<br><br>
ALSO, I did officially turn vegan on March 19th.<br><br><br><br>
That means that my 6-month anniversary of going vegan is tomorrow and my 1-year anniversary of going vegetarian is on Thursday! WOOHOO!!!!<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smitten.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":smitten:"><br><br><br><br><b>grrrr, for the poll I kinda goofed it up. choose what you want, but I probably should have just put veg*n rather than vegetarian.</b>

I don't know about turning vegetarian, because I first went pescatarian aged 12 and slowly cut out fish from there...so I put 2004 in my profile because I know I was definitely vegetarian at some point in 2004, if not before, but it could have been any time through 2003 or 2004, really.<br><br><br><br>
But I went vegan on August 22nd of this year so I will have one month coming up soon, and I'm determined to remember this anniversary.

My six year veganniversary was this past May. Sometimes I stop and think "wow, it's been six years since I ate meat and I don't miss it at all". <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I went vegetarian in 1989. I don't know the exact date, but I believe it was in June. My son has been vegetarian all of his life(5 1/2 yrs).

I passed my 7 year mark as a vegetarian in July and I have been vegan about a year of that time. I am now on my way to being a vegan again or a very strict vegetarian. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

I've been a vegetarian for 11 years, 10 months and 28 days (give or take <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">). Veganism was more of a winding path. Jan '04 is the date I'd probably use, but there were a couple of slices of cheese pizza in there.

I have been vegetarian four years this month.<br><br><br><br>
Vegan for one and a half-two-ish. I started identifying myself as vegan in January 05 but I didn't realize some of the things I was eating were non-vegan etc. until later.

I haven't consumed meat since 1992 or thereabouts.<br><br><br><br>
I went vegan some time in 1994, I think it was.<br><br><br><br>
(Hey, what do you want from a guy who never wears a watch and the only calendar he owns is at work and still says August. History ain't my thing.)<br><br><br><br>
In the fall of 2001 I introduced cheese and free range eggs into my diet. Not a lot. But even a little is too much. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br><br><br><br>
A couple months ago I came here and remembered why I was a vegan.<br><br><br><br>
It's hard to imagine that I fell off the vegan wagon and onto a pile of cow pus and avian reproductive secretions.<br><br><br><br>
What can I say? The things you do for love. :/<br><br><br><br>
Anyway, I'm much happier as a vegan. In the off chance I ever fall off the wagon again please beat me with a stick.

My vegeversary is coming up. I will have been a vegetarian for 1 year in october. Wow, that really went fast. I remember I decided I'd try it for a week because I really loved meat and thought it would be extremely hard to stop eating it. I thought I'd feel all icky as well. So I tried it for a week and was surprised, not only by how easy it was not to eat meat, but how much better I felt about myself. It was so wonderful to look at cows I knew and be ceratin I'd never eat them. Best decision ever.
