thanks to my lovely best friend Shannon, I've decided to finally take the leap into being fully vegan. i was vegetarian for 5 years through high school, etc, but now it's time to step up my game and really test my willpower. the past 3 days have gone off without a hitch. it's with great supportive systems like shannon and my mother that make the transition easier. if anyone is looking to become vegan, i highly suggest the VeganXpress app for the iPhone [amazing!] and websites like I Can't Believe It's Vegan! I already feel so much better physically and mentally. it's good to change up your lifestyle a little bit.
