I'm one of the many participating in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) and have decided to incorporate getting healthier with NaNoWriMo this year. So, I visited the website of the Vegan Society tonight and took the Gold Pledge. If you haven't visited their website, the Gold Pledge is where a person decides to go vegan for thirty days. I definitely have the support of my best friend. He's a vegan and has offered to help me with recipes and advice, which is awesome.
I've tried a vegan diet before and had lots of success with it. I felt better and was more energetic. I also lost 40 pounds while vegan. But as soon as I went back to eating meat and dairy I gained it all back plus some.
During this 30 day journey back into vegan eating, I am looking forward to seeing the changes within my body, feeling more energetic, and using this as a way to get healthier! I am hoping that the folks on this little section of the forum will be supportive and encouraging as I give this a whirl.
