It's been two weeks since I started the experiment. I still weigh the same, and I haven't noticed any extreme changes in my physiology. It's really gone by quickly. My family and friends all said "30 days? That's a long time!" But you know what? I'm truly doing all right.
My talk with Elisha really lifted my spirits, and encouraged me to learn from this experience rather than being hard on myself for slip-ups. I don't know if I'll become a vegan for good, not yet anyway. But I believe this experiment will have a truly profound effect on how I view food.
P.S. A wonderful discovery: Vegan Taco Bell! Get a Crunchwrap Supreme with no sour cream, no cheese and sub beans for meat. Happy (and humane) eating, everyone!
