Hi! My name is Jody and I am a fledgling vegetarian - I am a pathetically weak vegetarian. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/inquisitive.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":stinkeye:"> I struggle so much with my food choices and have struggled for 20+ years. I don't want to eat meat because I know it's not good for my health or the environment, but mostly because I can't stand the thought of defenseless animals being tortured and killed. Sometimes I wish I was ignorant about the things that animals go through because it would be so much easier to just eat whatever else eats - but I am really glad that I do know because then I can do something about it. So I'm here to find like-minded people to chat with so I don't feel so outnumbered all the time. I stopped eating meat (again) a few months ago and am determined to make it stick this time for good - for me and for my family. I want to be a great example for my three kids!<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":love:">

Welcome! And your health will feel so much better for it, and I'm finding the more time that passes, the more I'm glad I made this choice. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>

jingle, welcome to the forum. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
I know what you mean about how it would be easier to just eat what's widely available, what everyone else around you is eating, etc. For me personally, whenever something like this gets on my nerves, it's not the fact that I know about animal exploitation that gets to me, but rather the fact that the world around me isn't vegan. I was at the grocery store today and was walking past all these yummy pastries that I used to like, and thinking, it'd be so easy to replace dairy with soy in these things. I wish everyone thought like we do... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">
