Hi Robin. That's great that you only had one non-vegetarian item this week. Pat yourself on the back and tell yourself "I did good!!!"
And remember, the benefits of a vegetable diet will not be seen in just one week, usually. It takes time. So try to not rush it...just tell yourself, "This is my new way of life", so that you'll not put a time limit on it.
And think about: lets say you eat this way for a year and then realize it's not working for you. Well, you now have a story you can tell everyone!!!! You'll be saying: "Oh yes, I was a vegetarain for a whole year once!" How many people can say that?! So if nothing else, it's a topic of converstion. Also, it would prove to you that you can decipline yourself with new things...and I think that's always a good thing.
But I believe after a year you'd be bragging about the benefits of eating a vegetable diet. It's worth the risk to commit to at least one year of it and see what happens. So give it a shot! We are here to help you if you need it!
