And not that you ever would have any cravings or anything, but if you give in one day, that doesn't mean you're done for. I had lots of false starts. Be like the iceskaters in the olympics, pick up like nothing happened.
" It's kind of funny to realize that you'd stopped counting the weeks!"
Yes, it becomes like the norm for yourself at least and as long as you discover/cook/eat foods you like, they can become the things you crave. One site I read that described vegetarianism referred to it as "abstaining from meat and animal products" ... I totally object to the word "abstaining" as it seems to imply "forcing oneself through self control to not partake of a certain desirable thing" which is totally unilke how it is with me. I have absolutely no desire for any of the old animal-based foods
Keep finding fun and delicious veggie-based foods ... it definately should never feel like an ordeal or self-sacrifice once you get used to it some more
I"m also new to the veggie world. I've just made it through week three. I did come across a few challenges over Easter weekend, but I did get through them just fine. This has been the easiest and the best decision I've made in a long time
Again Congrats on making it pass the first week, next thing you know you'll be celebrating a year as a veggie.
