My name is Amanda, I'm 23 years old and I'm from Texas.<br><br>
I've been transitioning to vegetarianism these past couple of weeks. It is going quite well much to my surprise and to my family's dismay, haha. The only thing I truly miss is eggs, but my eyes have been opened to so many new foods that I miss them less everyday. I still have so much to educate myself on and I'm glad I found this forum!<br><br>
Thanks for looking! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Hi there! I'm from Texas too! I'm in East Texas, what part are you from?<br><br>
How are family and friends taking it? Hopefully they are being supportive! :)

Thanks, unovegan. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
Hey, NRAVegetarian. Thanks for the welcome. I'm from the Dallas/Fort Worth area. It's always great to see a fellow Texan! My family is supportive mostly, but I live with my sister and her family. She's always been huffy is she makes dinner/breakfast and I don't eat it. She's been even more put out now that I've given up meat, lol. She's getting used to it I think. P.S. I like your avatar tag!

Welcome, Amanda. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
I used to be a vegetarian, but after seeing Earthlings, I immediately went vegan. It's free to watch on the official website, I believe, and it's also on YouTube, in case you're interested in checking it out. I'll warn you, though, it's not for the faint-hearted.<br><br>
If you do end up deciding to transition over to veganism, feel free to ask any of us questions over in the Vegan Discussion section. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Hope you like it here...

Hi and welcome Amanda <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
If you are giving up eggs does that mean you're going vegan? Or lacto- vegetarian?

Thanks, Kimberlily1983 and lucky_charm for the welcome! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
I have the link for Earthlings in my bookmarks. I'm planning to watch in the next couple of days. I just have to be in the right mindset, even though I know it will be hard to watch no matter what.<br><br>
I've never been too much of a milk drinker. I've been drinking almond milk for over a year now so that's one less thing to transition over from. Since deciding to give up meat, I haven't eaten any eggs. Not purposely, I just have no desire to eat them any more. So maybe transitioning to vegan will not be so hard on me as I thought. I'm still educating myself on what to avoid in the ingredient lists. I don't want to overwhelm myself as I have a tendency on doing sometimes.

Welcome! It is definitely a good idea not to put too much change on your plate all at once. And don't worry, you don't have to be a vegan to post here. Many of us here still eat eggs and dairy (myself included).

I'm glad your family is being supportive. That is such a huge help in the whole transition I think. And thanks, I like it too! :)
