So we had health screenings from our insurance company at work yesterday. They were voluntary and free, but you should have heard how much my coworkers were dreading them! They knew they were going to hear bad news. But not vegan me. I marched right in and couldn't wait for the results. My cholesterol was 170, blood sugar 81, blood pressure 116/72 and body fat 22%. And I am never sick, have energy to spare and eat all day long. Ah! Sometimes knowing you are doing it right is so satisfying!

Excellent! I wish we had health screenings like that. I know I'm healthy enough to give blood, but I don't ever get regular checkups. :p

Congrats! It always confuses me when people talk about how terrible their diet is and how unhealthy they are, but a diet change is like the simplest thing you can do for yourself. Maybe it just seems more intimidating than it really is.

Maybe your results will encourage them to try veg*ism as well.

colleagues? and what was their response if any?
