yeah I've seen that bumper sticker but It's a little different here in Cali.

"It says Christians aren't perfect just forgiven!"

Maybe this one will be easier to explain because we know we are forgiven because we have asked for it by faith.

That word Saved really annoys those who don't understand so they do think we think we are better or Special.

Someday they will understand hopefully sooner then to late.

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.

My BF was sitting next to me when I found Sparks I've always had the healthy virus in me for awhile.

I think I can say when I became a Vegetarian about 12 years ago my daughter was the first to know.

My daughter knew first, since she was the one who recommended the site. Then it was my husband. Only a few of my colleagues know about it. But, they are started to comment on my changes.
