Hello all! My name is Rachel and I'm a 34 year old 4th grade teacher, vegan, and animal lover. I'm so very grateful to have found a community of compassionate people that share my passion and concern for animals. I have been vegan for about 5 months now athough it feels like longer. It's been such an enlightening journey so far, but at times it feels like me against the world. I have been reading posts on this site for times when I felt deflated or down, and I can't tell you how much they have lifted my spirits and empowered me to keep going. I've been "detoxing" for the past few months from my old icky diet and eating habits and I'm happy to say I feel like the worst is behind me! I've lost 12 pounds without trying much, and my skin is glowing. People ask what am I doing, and I say that it must be my "I love animals diet!" Although I've received plenty of pro-meat eating comments from coworkers, family members, and aquaintences about "not getting enough protein", or "the Bible says to eat meat", I am more dedicated then ever to continue with this beautiful, humane, and healthy lifestyle. I know I'm planting the seed in the mind if others, even if they outwardly disagree. I can go on and on about all the benefits of this new life, but I'll end here. Just wanted to introduce myself and say thank you for speaking your voice, and being a guiding light for me in my journey. It gives me peace to know other Vegans and I look forward to being part of your community. 0:)
