Hello everyone. I'm new here, obviously. I don't really know what to say on a vegitarian forum, but I'll try not to look like an idiot. I was a vegitarian when I was a teenager: for about five years. I gave it up because my husband is a major carnivore. It was hard trying to be a wife to him and a mother to his daughter without eating meat-you'd have to see how these two eat to believe it. I gained 50 pounds and became quite depressed over the past couple of years. Recently, I decided to go vegan. Now, I'm a size 3 again, and I'm much more at peace with myself. My husband won't follow my lead; I still have to cook meat for him and the kiddo. That's why I thuoght I should start posting to a forum like this. I don't know a single vegan or even a vegitarian, other than one cousin who I only see once a year. I don't intend to be whiney, I just need some support. I hope to have many posts in the future, until then, take care.
