Hello! I am sitting here in Houston, welcome. I love this site, and Alicia's book. I have been vegan almost a year and it has changed my life in so many positive ways. Good luck being vegan in Texas! :)
Fort Worth can be a challenge. The closest Whole Foods to me is about 45 minutes, but we have a smallish local shop that has a nice selection so that's really helpful. We only have 1 veg*n restaurant in Fort Worth proper though, and in such a big steak town it can be a challenge to eat out. Hopefully we'll see a change, or at least some veggie friendly options added to the menu as we get more vocal as a community!
