I've just had my first fight with my husband sense becoming vegan. First let me say that we both believe 100% that our money is OUR money not his or mine alone. So he went to take some money from my…Continue

I was scrolling through Facebook when I saw an add for Kayla Itsines workout and diet plan all for my iPhone. I have a long history of yoyo dieting and anorexia. I have recently gained over 60 pounds in the last year and am very unhappy about it. I decided to give it a try. After downloading the app I looked her up on YouTube and watched one of her videos. I was falling back into the old pattern of wanting to starve myself. While I was watching her video I saw a video for "the vegan couple" on the side talking about Kayla. I clicked on it. What they were saying about carbs and fuel made sense. I then saw a video posted by you freelee and watched it. I was in awe. I decided to watch your videos from the very beginning! I'm almost caught up now. I've done more and more research based off the things you say in your videos and my eyes have truly opened. I have cried my eyes out over these poor animals while watching some of your more graphic videos. I've now sworn that I will never again use another animal product or give my children these products for as long as I live. I'm ready to make a change! I was a veggitarian for 3 years in Highschool and it was so lonely. I was constantly being ridiculed by family and friends. People would intentionally TRICK me into eating meat. My grandmother actually held me down at one point (she was very strong for her age!) and literally forced a pork chop down my throat, choking me. It was disheartening and ultimately resulted in my going back to meat just to make the torture stop. I'm older now (23) and have my own family. While my husband says he will support me, he is a big meat eater. He grew up in the south and hunting is a big part of his background. I'm hoping that if I can change my life and show him how wonderful the benefits are he may be willing to change in the long run too. I don't know anyone else who is a vegan so I really need support. I'm brave enough to stand up for myself now but it will still help to be able to talk to at least some people who are on my side. I'm ready to get this started and start feeling better as well as making this earth a better place!
