Hiya there,<br><br>
I visited my mum at her workplace after school today because I wanted to scan a drawing and we don't have a scanner at home, and out of the blue she tells me that she hasn't eaten meat in a week! I asked her if it was about her cholesterol (because it was much too high lately and she'd asked me about some veg alternatives to cut back some on meat) and she said, "no, just in general."<br><br>
WOAH <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/shocked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"> She went on to say straight away that she's not going to drop dairy or eggs, but still, I'm completely stunned. I <i>never</i> expected her to go vegetarian. I mean, cut back a little maybe, but definitely not really vegetarian.<br><br>
I'm not sure she'll stay with it (almost certain she'll go back to meat, somehow) but still, this is really great anyway. And it's also the second time for me to have influenced someone decision to go veg - a friend went veg shortly after getting to know me and now this. I feel so weird suddenly, having actually made a difference, even if it's just a teeny-tiny one.<br><br>
So... I'll just see what happens and enjoy feeling a little cool today <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/cool3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cool:"><br><br>
Much love,<br><br>

When my mom went vegetarian I was also shocked. She started doing with because meat was "giving her problems". But once she had been veggie for a few weeks she noticed she had more energy, had lost weight and could still eat all the food she loves. (she loves cheese and will not give it up).

vegansarawr, I hope she'll soon see the benefits of it and stick with it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> It's been more than two weeks now and looking quite good, I think.<br><br>

I wish my mom would be like that too. When I was younger and still living with my mom I always tell her to cut off some meats and she would tell me that if she cut off some meat I would not be allowed to watch baseball. Baseball, is the only thing that could bring excitement in my life. To keep motivated on my vegetarian diet I just stare at <a href="http://www.newsytype.com/4467-adam-wainwright-injury/" target="_blank">Adam Wainwright</a> and I feel great. Right now my mom's health is at high risk because of her unhealthy diet.</div>

You could offer to fix a vegetarian dinner for her one night a week, and see how good it is. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/drool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":drool:">
