My sister, to my surprise, accepted the fact that i am going vegan with an open mind, but she also pointed out that I am only 14 and that I am still…Continue
So I have major news! Someone suggested for me to use Cronometer to make sure that I am eating enough calories, and I just broke 2,000 calories! I have now eaten 2,030 calories today, and I just had a wonderful dinner of 2 steamed potatoes over snow peas with squash sauce on top! I feel so full and content, and especially so because my brother started leaving me alone when he saw how much food I was consuming. Even my mom left me alone and seemed satisfied that I was eating a lot of…Continue

I'll start by telling you a little about myself. My life, my story. My soul.
I was a shy girl for a very long time, who quite frankly, absolutely hated herself! I wasn't confident with my weight or looks through school, and kids picked up on that and bullied me calling me "weird" "ugly" "fat" "red head" "ginger" whenever they got the chance. I pretended it didn't bother me but it did! It really, truly did! I didn't even feel like a person after a while, and wanted desperately…Continue

I don't have any like-minded friends to discuss issues with or express my emotions and angers. I'm getting so fed up with meat eaters. I'm tired of constantly being told, "you need to eat some bacon", "I tried to be vegetarian for a day...", "I could never be vegan! I love cheese too much", or "But, don't you like chicken?". Meat eaters literally said all of these…Continue
