I had a very severe case of mono that has totally taken over my life. I looked into veganism as a way to gain more energy & try to regain my health. However, I came across many things like Earthlings, Food, Inc., Forks Over Knives, Gary Yourosky's speech, Colleen Patrick Goudreau .. anyways, I realized I was not living according to my morals. So here I am, a vegan for 2.5 weeks & loving it!
But it's really hard to stay motivated without ANY other support. I do not know ANY vegans! So please introduce yourselves & i'd love to get to know you all.

nice to meet you! I´m quite new to veganism, too, and as I don´t know any vegans in "real" life either I´m happy to get to know like-minded people on this site:-) it really is a great source of support!:-)
Hi Katie :), I am very new to veganism too. I am married and have two small children (ages one and 3). So far it is just me going vegan and then I'm hoping once my family see how great I am feeling and how delicious the foods are, they'll switch over too. It'll take some convincing with my husband I'm afraid as he enjoys his meat, especially bbq season. I'm just going to be going shopping for some vegan basics today and am struggling with what exactly to buy for groceries on a limited budget. Any tips?
