Hey Dawn!!! Welcome to Spark! I'm a new vegan too! I'm enjoying this change, it's actually quite easy for me but I've been prepping, researching, etc for a long time. I have to say that the hardest part is PLANNING the food I will eat. I'm used to going willy nilly not really planning food too much beyond what would be for the families dinner time otherwise I would just "whatever" during the day. But with this new Lifestyle it's important to make sure you get a balanced diet.
So far this group has been super supportive and welcoming since I started posting just this week! :) Look forward to getting to know you all better!

I believe in myself, I am a strong woman. I will reach my goals, NOTHING & NOBODY will hold me down. I will live my life with integrity and intention. I will set a good example for my daughters and my son. I will be a woman that makes my grand children proud when they look at pictures of me long after I've left this earth.
Hi. My name is Dawn, and I am completely new to this vegan thing. :) All my life my weight has been a yo-yo, and I thought...."new year = new idea!" so here I am. I'm looking forward to meeting new people, giving recieving support and learning new eating habits.
