I had been contemplating going vegan for a year or so when I watching the Food, Inc. documentary. I know that it's not as harrowing as some other documentaries, but it was enough to show me what I supporting by using animal-derived products.
That night, I went vegan (actually only plant-based - I didn't realise how many of my cosmetics and other products needed to be binned and replaced until a few months later) on the spot, and immediately stopped eating animal products. Having no nutritional understanding, and being unwilling to incorporate new foods into my diet, I failed after a couple of weeks, feeling lethargic, nauseous and angry all of time.
I went back and forth like this for several months, until finally, when trying to work out why I couldn't be vegan if so many studies and documentaries said that it was not only viable but incredibly healthy, I found Freelee's channel. I think I binged-watched several hours worth of her videos all at once!
I don't know, somehow it had just never hit me that the lack of caloric _density_ in plants meant that I had to eat _more_ of them. I've been a vegan without falling off the wagon for about a year now, of which I'm very proud, and for the past ~five months I've been RT4. (It was hard to give up my vegan pancakes for breakfast ;))
I don't know why it's taken me so long to join 30BaD, I guess I've just been shy, especially given how what a "bad" vegan I was in the beginning.

Are you Connected?
yes i am
My favourite books/movies/authors/pastimes are....
I spend most of my time drumming and playing video games, honestly. I have a 5-piece Pearl drum kit (it's perfectly vegan, I promise -- I checked thoroughly!), and my preferred games are World of Warcraft, Hearthstone and The Sims (1/2/3/4). I don't spend as much time reading as I do drumming, but my favourite author is Stephen King.

I can't store fruit! It goes bad quicker than I can eat it! I live in the middle of nowhere, so I can only buy it once a week -- and it always seems to start to rot or ferment before the week is out. I wonder if I'm buying everything _too_ ripe to begin with?
