Hiya everyone. How are you?<br><br>
I have been toying with the idea of going veggie for many years. (maybe one day live a vegan lifestyle) I am ready to make the change. If any of you have any help or advice on how to switch over, I would greatly apprieciate that. I have no friends or family that support this but I have researched it throughly and I know that this is the right thing for me to do.<br><br>
I look forward to getting to know other veggies.<br><br>

Hi, Welcome to VB!<br><br>
The 'new to vegetarianism' forum might be a big help to you, especially the tip of the day thread.

Hi Athena! Is your name really Athena? She's my favorite Greek goddess!<br><br><br><br>
Anyway, welcome to VB! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hi.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hi:"> Congrats on making the decision to switch to a veg diet/lifestyle! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":up:"><br><br><br><br>
I suggest you start with this thread: <a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/showthread.php?t=50249&page=8" target="_blank">The Tip of the Day Thread</a> in the New to Vegetarianism forum. It has lots of useful dietary information, links, recipes, etc. Check it out and you can't go wrong! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/yes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":yes:">

Just do the best you can one meal at a time. Some people make the switch over night, some people take years. Do what feels comfortable to you. There's a bit of a learning curve with cooking and ordering food and what not so don't beat yourself up if you're not perfect right away. The vegan police will not come after you if you slip up.
