I'm a vegan and so is one of my daughters - the other is vegetarian (and my ex-husband is coming around!). Let me know if there's anything I can do to support you.

I used to feel like you did, but I no longer think it's drastic when compared to the drastic nature that eating meat does to our health, our environment, & our economy. The idea that it's drastic relates only to the sensory withdrawal of our comfort zone. People could say that going sober or quitting cigarettes cold turkey is drastic, but they don't b/c they identify that these are habits that need to be eliminated. There's value in placing one's own health & planet above the satisfaction of one's own palate. You should be applauded for daring to take on such a journey. Look, people who don't get it usually know very little about it or are simply engaged in cognitive dissonance. I like that you are passionate about the issues, as anyone should be (it's very serious & very real), but you have to exercise patience (I know, I know the clock isn't exactly on our side here). However, we were all indoctrinated in our youth to adopt the beliefs & customs of our caretakers against our own better judgement. So there's a natural tendency for people to become very protective of these ideals b/c they represent a large part of their identity. Think about it, what other custom is as entrenched in every activity & event of our daily lives like eating is? Food comes w/ memories & emotional attachments.

I find I can get 2 different weights on my own scale by stepping on and stepping off! Is there a way to calibrate the scale (s)? Maybe weigh in on both every day and see if the variance changes...Good luck!

You can do this. BTW tripping and getting up is now called Functional Fitness.

Thanks! Yeah, it's sort of like plyometrics! Or at least that's what I tell myself when I'm being clumsy :)
