Hi, everyone! I am so happy to find this site! Up until now I have been posting on Craigslist Vegan Forums but that place is so crazy because it is unmoderated, so I was looking for a more friendly place that you can get information from. I became a pescetarian on January 1, 2005 due to an animal incident that made me realize I could no longer eat meat and be true to my convictions and morals about animals. I know it was a long time coming but for many years I was one of those people who tried to turn a blind eye to what I knew was wrong. Ever since then, I know I will never revert back to being a meat eater. I am trying to become a full-fledged vegetarian now, and cut out fish, but it has been hard to learn how to eat right and take care of myself. As a matter of fact, I have gained weight since becoming a vegetarian cause I crave the carbs, starches and dairy. I am considering taking a vegetarian cooking class to help in this area.<br><br><br><br>
I would love to know if anyone knows of any vegetarian or animal rights clubs in NJ that I can join to help out more. I am trying to figure out how to enter the animal rights/welfare movement as a career and not be heartbroken every work day.<br><br><br><br>
So I guess I wrote more of a novel than an intro, sorry about that! Happy holidays to everyone!

From another NJ vegetarian, welcome to the boards! Check out the New to Vegetarianism Forum for some great advice on staying healthy and vegetarian. There are also a ton of great recipes in the recipe section of the site.
