Hello, I have not seen Fork Over Knives but have seen other things that inspired me to become a vegetarian. I was living the vegan lifestyle for a while, but I travel a great deal with my husband for business. Traveling once in a while and maintaining my vegan diet was okay but when those trips became longer and more frequent, I just did not feel healthy with the limited options I had while eating out all of the time. I feel that I may sometime in the near future do it again, but I wish you all the best in your new healthy eating! God Bless, AnnMarie
Hi, I am Jolyn. I live in East Mesa, Arizona. IT HOT!!...lol. Have been toying with the idea of becoming a vegan like my 35 yr old son. I can manage Vegetarian easy. But starting this August...I am going hardcore vegan. I watched Forks Over Knives and am convinced that this is the best way to live. We love the Lord with all our hearts. Praying He gives me the strength to do this. Good to be on this site. Thanks for starting it. I will need the support...lol.

Hello! So happy that you have joined our group! I am also so happy for you, that you are so close to obtaining your weight loss goal. (I wish I could say the same. ) We look forward to hearing from you in the future. Have a wonderful evening, AnnMarie
As a new almost-vegan, I'm happy to find this Christian Spark community. I am a wife, mom, writer, librarian, etc. - many hats. My husband and teenage daughter are joining me in the vegan lifestyle (I would say, in fact, that my daughter led the charge!). The only hold-out is my teenage son, who likes his meat! He is still young, so there is hope :)
I am kind of at my goal weight, but would like to lose about 5 pounds to build in a little cushion in advance of a special event this summer. I am okay at 115-117 when the fall resumes.

Hello everyone! My name is Becky and I am new here. I am also new to being a vegan however it is something I wish I had done years ago. I am excited to speak to you all and make some friends along this journey. In the "real world" I am kind of shy until I get to know someone but not as much on the internet. I have a wonderful son and husband and I love the Lord with all my heart! He has been so good to us! I hope to talk to you soon. =)
