[30]

I watched What the Health and holy hell! I'm done. I'm on day 6 of eating vegan. I'm 380 lbs. I'm pre diabetic, high blood pressure, all the bells and whistles of being over weight. I've been this way my whole life. I want to see my sons grow up. One thing that is really hard for me is that I don't like fruit. Not any fruit. I just can't chew it and swallow it. So I feel like over the long haul I'm going to be limited and maybe get bored. My husbands and sons also do not agree with my choice at all. They thinks it's crazy and refuse to go along with it. When I told my boss he asked it my other co-workers had bets on how long I would last and then he brought 2 bags of candy in to work, opened one, smelled it and looked right at me to say how good it smelled. I mean really?! Anyhoo, I really don't want to eat any of the "junk" vegan foods...the processed ones. And not liking fruit or any raw veggies either....not sure exactly how my vegan lifestyle is going to turn out really. So far, lots of beans and brown rice, roasted squash and zucchini, vegan chili, edamame, steamed broccoli, & cauliflower. I'm not sure how to get everything I need into each day and making sure I actually like the things too.

Yay congrats and stay tough! Yeah the hardest part about being vegan is the haters! WTF? I agree about youtube - it's been a lifesaver because I have no vegan friends. And there are millions of recipes out there. Stay strong - and when the a-holes all suffering heart disease or cancer you can feel sorry for them.
