30 Bananas a Day!

So I feel, odd
I think
I really really want to start participating in this lifestyle but I'm afraid of a lot of things
I'm terrified of gaining weight on this
I'm afraid of losing motivation or just reverting backwards
And I'm afraid of cravings breaking me
And I can't exactly start until I have my own income and can buy my own fruits and stuff and I'm currently looking for a job right now.
I have a friend that wants to be vegan too, and we want to start this adventure together but shes in the same situation that I'm in right now, and I'd enjoy meeting new friends to journey together because I'm very new at this and I didn't really find a reason to become vegan until last night and I'm overweight and just, edgy I guess?

Hey Desiree! ^^
Being a beginner vegan isn't easy so don't feel bad if you are having trouble and second thoughts. Just take it one step at a time and try to educate yourself as much as possible on veganism and what it means for you in terms of ethics and moral, what it means for the animals, and the environment. No doubt being vegan will help improve your health and I've seen nothing but positive things for myself and others on this hclf lifestyle. You should try not making weight such a big deal and instead try building health, fitness, and happiness. Read books on veganism and watch movies, documentaries, and follow several people on YouTube you feel you can relate to and help you out on your journey. Some people gain weight initially and others don't and will lose the weight they needed to depending on the type of background they are coming from. Rice, potatoes, pasta, and oats are very cheap so maybe make those your staples and go the starch solution for a while until you can afford purchasing more fruit. When I was struggling with money I would have fruit for breakfast and then the rest of the day was cooked. Try to do what you can and learn as you go(looking for sales or going to the bruised bins or areas where the produce is at a reduced price can really help save when you need to) it's awesome to hear you also have a friend who is kind of on the same boat with wanting to go vegan and you could both be each other's help, support, guides, and buddies as you become vegan and help one another when you're struggling. Hope this helps in some way and good luck, we are all here to help in any way we can :)

Welcome Desiree!
