Oh yes I definately know what you mean! My sister is a vegetarian and has a hard time explaining to people...some people get offended over it. I mean what is it to them what she eats? And yes, I understand about the Jesus part too. My husband has a sign that says " Christians aren`t perfect, they are just saved."...because some people think you think you are better than them if you speak about Christianity.... Anyway, back to the topic...yes being accountable is a great tool.

Definitely I do tell now but I seem to be more on the defense mode because telling someone your vegetarian/vegan is like telling someone that Jesus died on the cross for you and you are a sinner people get defensive if you know what mean.

I commented that my husband was the first to know, but I wanted to add that I think it is good to tell someone when you have made a commitment to do something. It helps you to be more accountable to it.
