*points at me*<br><br>
I am going vegan again.<br><br><br><br>
After 2 brushes with beef and (it was kosher.. that's what i've been telling myself to feel less guilty) dairy & eggs since jeebus knows when I am re-vegan-born.<br><br><br><br>
I've been less healthy since being lacto-ovo veg. my immunity system just sucks and I managed to stay un-sick while vegan.<br><br><br><br>
I've gained weight since being lacto-ovo. I'm getting ready to start playing soccer in the spring so that's an issue sort of, I need to start running and stuff again..<br><br><br><br>
Anyway,<br><br><br><br>
that's my rant about why I'm going vegan again. Yay..

I quietly went from vegetarian to vegan a few weeks ago. Not a problem 'cept for the snack cakes I used to eat that had eggs in'em. But, I can make my own more at home that will be even tastier. So, 'no love lost'...bye bye cheese and sour cream <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

The darkside is the literary magazine at my school<br><br><br><br>
I am published in this literary magazine<br><br><br><br>
The advisor tried to recruit me for it as I am "the most talented writer in the school" and also got a 76% in Honors British Literature because we had a ***** who didn't know what she was talking about and I was bored and therefore didn't get to take AP English and I will remain bitter for the rest of my life. *HUFF*

Thumbs up to IRP for going vegan again! It can be hard, especially if you've tried it before, and it didn't work out like you hoped. Keep your self-confidence up, and don't let memories of meat-run-ins stop you!

What caused you to go back to eating flesh from being vegan? I remember back when you were talking about a raw foods diet. Did you go from vegan to flesh eater and now you are octo-lactose? What makes you give it up again? I'm curious because I've been vegetarian for only about 6 months and vegan for about 2 weeks. I can say right now that I won't ever go back to the way I used to believe. But, down the road, will I get all confused again and go back to my old ways? This thought scares me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/huh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":confused:">

Wow, 6 months veg and already vegan? It took me over a year to make the vegan step, and most people I know took several years. Very nice!<br><br><br><br>
Ruthie, my experience is that everyone has their own timetables and reasons for making the diet change. Some people take 10 years of being a vegetarian before going vegan, others, like yourself, can do it in no time.<br><br><br><br>
Some people cheat, others don't. There's no prescription for what you're going to experience.<br><br><br><br>
Me personally, 30 days after I went vegetarian I went and cheated. I gorged on an italian beef sandwich and a vienna beef hotdog. I got so sick I couldn't move. I haven't even come close to cheating again.<br><br><br><br>
For me, my one cheating experience has been a good thing, because it's kept me from being tempted to cheat again.<br><br><br><br>
For yourself, just trust your instincts. Just because some people have problems or lapse back into their old habits doesn't mean everyone will, and just because someone lapses doesn't mean they're doomed, either - I find most people learn more from their lapses than anything.

For me it's not a diet though. It's a way of life, almost like a religion. Like, my step daughter is still trying to understand. Today we made chocolate chip cookies. She asks me if, because I don't eat anything with eggs or milk in them anymore, if I was 'allowed' to have a cookie. I told her that yes, I'm allowed to eat anything I want to. I just choose not to. It's the right choice for me. It feels like I was always meant to be this way for some strange reason. Maybe my 'old soul' was a vegan in another life. I made my mind up with my heart; not my head. I really don't want flesh and don't crave it. And I liked eating it before. Strange I know. Once I saw the pictures, read the stories of processing and torture, and what that crap does to the body, I can't let it enter me anymore. My spirit won't allow it. Actually the only thing I continued to eat after going vegetarian that had animal in it was cheese. Here's the thing that clicked in my head to stop eating cheese. A few weeks ago I started research about it. Rennet. I read about what it is exactly, how it's obtained and processed, everything I could find I read. I don't have any desire to eat anything with rennet in it now. I almost want to gag at the thought. I have strong emotions tied to everything I do. Once it all ties together, mind and spirit, it's a done deal. I'm am a deeper person now..more at one with everything. Oh, I'm rambling. I must quit before everyone gets tired of reading <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

You're not rambling - I think that's really cool! Your conviction is something to be proud of.<br><br><br><br>
Not to tempt you, but health food stores do carry rennet-less cheese, hehe. I know what you mean, though, about it just feeling right. I think you've got a lot going for you cuz you seem to have your head straight and know what you want/need from your lifestyle - and that's a good thing.<br><br><br><br>
I generally avoid calling veganism a religion, though. I reject anything that tries to indoctrinate, and the attempts by vegan figures like Joanne Stepaniak to turn veganism into a religion I find offensive - there's no party-line and there's no moral authority out there to dictate what is and isn't vegan.<br><br><br><br>
I know that not what you meant, now I'm just rambling. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
Again though, I respect the fact that you came to veganism BECAUSE of animal rights, rather than vice versa. I gave up flesh products not because I thought it wrong to eat animals but because I heard it was a fun diet and I was reading some eastern philosophy that talked alot about vegetarianism as a way to reach higher planes.<br><br><br><br>
It wasn't until I'd given up flesh that I began to feel compassion towards all animals and eventually evolved into an animal rights activist.
