Hey y'all! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hi.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hi:"><br><br>
I joined a few years ago as a college freshman with a new year's resolution of becoming a vegetarian. I was really good for a while, but living in dorms and then a sorority house for two years with extremely limited options (and a general lack of motivation) kind of made it way too easy for me to fall off the veg*n wagon. So that happened and I pretty much forgot about this site for a few years...and here we are again, except it's January 2012 instead of 2009 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">.<br><br>
In the last few years, I've gained about 10 pounds and lots of flabbiness/unhealthiness and so I bought the book Skinny ***** on my brand-new Kindle off of a friend's recommendation. The animal slaughter chapters...that's what did it for me. I'd never read anything like that on my previous attempt. I had to put it down; I felt queasy. And now, I have a resolve I've never felt before, and I'm taking it further than I ever thought I would. Mark my words - I WILL be a vegan by the end of 2012. I'm no longer content with simply trying to be an ovo-lacto vegetarian. I want to overhaul everything and live a healthier lifestyle and avoid consuming any type of animal product after reading about their treatment/slaughter. I've also just downloaded The China Study, and hoping to find other book recommendations from these boards! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/book2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":book:"> I also need all the motivation/support I can get as I try to eliminate eggs, milk, and cheese (no! not cheese!) from my diet! Well...and first I have to fully eliminate meat (again), but I seriously will NOT have any problems with that after reading Skinny ***** haha.<br><br>
So...I'm back. And (hopefully!) I'm here to stay! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/carrot.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":vebo:">

Hehehe, my post count took me from "senior member" to like 100 posts <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:"><br><br>
Oh, this is random, but in some thread (don't remember which one) I noticed you said you loved Framboise. BEST. DRINK. EVER. Tried some a few weeks ago out with a friend and was instantly obsessed! And now I'm craving some...

Lindeman's Framboise really is the most amazing thing. From the bottle it has a little wine taste to it, from the tap, it's just pure sweetness and amazing. I wish you lived closer, we could get a bottle, drink it, and then go makeup shopping <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:">
