Keep at it. I have to deal with the "You shouldn't be vegan." stuff. I got support in the beginning, but medical problems have killed the support from my family.<br><br><br><br>
You know you're doing what's right for you. That's what matters.

Welcome to VeggieBoards! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hi.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hi:"> I can totally relate to your family; my family seems to harbor a grudge for me being vegan.

Yep, just remember it's your decision and affects no one but you. It shouldn't involve them in any way.<br><br><br><br>

I was also raised in a family of meat eaters. My father is a hunter in fact. Just keep in mind that the decision to eat animals or not is a very personal choice and one that only you can make. You're doing what feels right to you and that's all that matters. Just make sure to get all the nutrients you need (and you can tell your family that people need certain nutrients, NOT certain foods, like meat or dairy. There are plenty of other BETTER sources). I know it can be challenging in a house of carnivores... living on side dishes and so forth. Good luck and congratulations for being wise enough and strong enough to make the decision to go veg!
