Welcome to the team JENNYLEE74,

Flexitarians are 100% guilt free! Count your meatless meals as victories and don't sweat the little things. I am a vegetarian now, but found it easier to slowly replace meat in meals until one day I realised I was eating no meat and not even missing it.

I read this somewhere, probably here at SparkPeople:

Week 1 - Eat smaller portions of meat and larger portions of veggies

Week 2 - Plan 3 meals this week that include a leafy green or orange veggie that you do not normally eat.

Week 3 - Omit meat 1-2 days and serve a meal with tofu or beans + grains for protein.

Week 4 - Decide how many days you want to be a flexi-vegetarian this week and plan your weekly menu.

I decided to go vegetarian about 5 months ago, the road has not been easy and i have been faced with temptations. Maybe i am trying to do too much , i am also avoiding high fat foods and carbs, limit dairy , avoid junk food. There are days when i caved and ate some kind of meat and i feel really guilty but i try to get back on the saddle. I am trying to loose for weight for my wedding coming up in Febuary 2013. I have gone down a few sizes but i have not reached my goal yet. Hoping to find some support and encouragement here, thanks!
