Hi <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Short introduction here.<br><br><br><br>
Ive been vegetarian since I was 12. That makes it about 12 years, as Im 24 now. I have not drank milk for about 8 years. When I was 19, I became vegan. This lasted for about a year and then (due to an eating disorder) I started eating cheese because I figured that if it was comin back up anyways, it "didnt count." I am now in recovery, and I am eating normally, but I still eat cheese and occasionally free-range eggs. I feel guilty when I do, so Im working on that.<br><br><br><br>
I grew up in the NW States and moved to Canada two years ago. I have gained about 50lbs since moving here and Im working on getting rid of it. I know I eat too much junk now, and my diet has changed A LOT since moving here. I also quit smoking and got on the pill (and broke my foot LOL) within the first month or so of moving. I would like to take more steps to vegan-ity and Im hoping you all will be able to teach me!<br><br><br><br>
I mainly came to this board to find more information on vegan products.. cleaning supplies, cosmetics etc. I also need more info on how to 'help' the cause. I basically want more education.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
This is my first post here, and I cant wait to look around and see what there is here!<br><br><br><br>
Hope thats not too much info up there, but its me. And this is the end of my "short" introduction. Glad to meet you all <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
