I posted on this forum before I even introduced myself because I felt like I'm in the community already since I've been lurking for quite some time now. :p<br>
my apologies for that.<br>
Let me introduce myself: NAGEV backwards for Vegan <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br>
yes, I'm this much unoriginal :p<br>
Its been roughly two months since I did the "transition". No, I wasn't vegetarian before I became vegan. It started with a 30 days challenge.<br>
I picked up the idea from the vegan youtube community. They are very helpful, informative, and fun to watch.<br>
I'm loving every bit of this experience and i'm enjoying reading posts of like-minded people <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> This is a great community and I'm excited to be a part of it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":love:"><br><br>
You guys keep being superheroes and making this world a better place.<br>
Keep doing yo thang. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br>
Peace and love

<br>
My skin condition (type of acne) started to get better and the progress was pretty obvious around the 30th day. I'm still amazed and hoping for more progress.<br>
Not to mention that you feel soo happy about your new lifestyle. I never was able to feel proud about my diet as I was mainly a junk food eater and a chocolate addict but ever since I turned vegan I feel like i'm useful for something, i'm voting with my dollars for the planet, the animals AND the humans, and boycotting most of the evil corporations that are stealing the health of our youth these days like they did with me.<br>
So I feel like I'm having my little revenge <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"> at the same time being a superhero and saving the planet and the beautiful animals ... How can anybody say no to this lifestyle? .. Beats me.. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/huh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":huh:">

Welcome Nagev!<br><br>
I didn't even introduce myself, I just dove right in!<br><br>
I didn't transition either. One day I had just had enough of eating crap and how I felt and just switched. Reading Skinny ***** really pushed me over the edge and made it permentant. Best decision I had ever made and I'm now a life long vegan.

Skinny ***** is the next book im buying! just as soon as I finish my vegan girl guide to live by Melissa Eliott <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> this book is really helpful.<br>
I'm hoping skinny ***** will motivate me to lose weight <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> I heard a lot of positive feedbacks about it.

There's a lot of positive and negatives about the book. Honestly, it really opened my eyes, not just to the cruelty towards animals, but how gross our food really is.<br><br>
It turned me off cheese. Yuck!<br><br>
AND -- I do like their brutal honesty. Sometimes you need someone to say 'Look, you're fat. Get over it and get on an effin' treadmill' to make you do something. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Welcome <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> You have an interesting avatar, is it from the movie Fight Club if I'm not mistaken? Also, what is this Youtube community or challenge that you wrote about? I googled and found a raw vegan youtube challenge, did you do that?

this is <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T4wWDb5WvKE&feature=channel_video_title" target="_blank">one</a> of the videos that talk about the 30 days challenge. The one that opened up my eyes was a commercial to have a 30 days vegan plan that i can't find right now. After I saw it I googled the 30 day challenge and I found it on peta's website.<br>
One of the vegans on youtube that got me started is this user: (one of my fav videos about Vegan causes for that matter)<br><a href="http:" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2kl3sZscwk4&feature=channel_video_title</a><br><br>
I find out about <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FytZI6EEXvQ" target="_blank">Moby</a> and <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UeSA2j4oiDA" target="_blank">Ellen degeners</a> being vegan. The expert village youtube also helped a lot to understand that I wont be giving up a lot of things:<br><a href="http:" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HJE-LW_8UjU&playnext=1&list=PL6158418D4E78DDC4</a><br><a href="http:" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zo-RqKkwW5A&feature=relmfu</a><br><br>
This all happened very soon, I had a free day haha.. I started to google about veganism, health benefits and you can save the world just by being vegan etc. I also read some articles about the China study.<br>
Two days after that I watched Earthling (that movie makes you cry like a baby) and everything clicked. No more meat. I couldn't do it anymore. Never ate meat since then.<br><br>
another video that keeps me going is:<br><a href="http:" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eA60Jlk-nV8</a><br><br>
To think we have such a thing called slaughter house.<br><br>
ps: yes it does come from fight club <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> one my fav movies of all time
