Well the first week of the Vegan challenge was great for me now this week I want to focus on trying new things, as I didn't do their food plan. I decided this week to try 2 new recipes, and 1 new item. See how calcium is something I never get enough of b/c I never did really drink milk. My item this week to try was a non dairy milk so Almond Breeze happen to be on sale at the store so I got it I'm drinking my first cup it isn't bad but I still like my water better.

I can't change my past, but I can change my future!

This is my 3rd Kickstart. I keep doing them because they reinforce my efforts and help with things I'm still trying to work on - like reducing my intake of sugar and eating more low fat. I love the low-fat vegan diet.

I am going to start this on Monday :) I'm hoping trying a vegan diet instead of a vegetarian one will help me get over this plateau I have hit.

Missed the deadline for this one, but I entered my name and e-mail address so I'll be part of the January 1st Program. I can't think of a better way to start the new year!

So I have had breakfast and lunch and suprisingly I am full and not wasting away as I earlier thought I would. Its easier with their recipes to prepare good foods. Not boring either as I had expected. Wow I am liking this so far. How do you all feel so far???

I signed up and I am nervous. I worry will I be able to be completely vegan. I am a vegetarian but completely vegan in house of meat eaters is hard.

I signed up. I have followed the McDougall Vegan program before with great results. This should be a good refresher.

I signed up too. I'm interested to see how this goes. :)
Some months go very smoothly for me but others are horrible (this is a horrible one) when it comes to diet. :(
I am making overall progress on a healthy lifestyle-but the times when it seems to fall apart really bum me out.

I like the idea of keeping tabs with each other on how this is going...

Love as thou wilt my friend!

Great idea - keeping one another upated on our progress. I have been an on-again, off-again vegan - would love to know how everyone is doing with the kick start as well.

I, like you have been leaning towards becoming a total vegan. I can't wait to see how I do. We should keep each other updated on how we're doing once we start. Thanks for the link!

DIET IS A FOUR LETTER WORD!!!!

We are constantly creating our "karma" or destiny through our intentions, thoughts and deeds in this moment. It is achieved through countless deliberate acts of selflessness.

It's hard to be happy with others if we are not happy with ourselves.

Just keep on moving and you'll get there.


If you ever want to feel good about yourself, go out and help someone else!

Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine is holding a 21-Day Vegan Kickstart Program starting September 8.

Even though I've been a vegetarian for years and eat a mostly vegan diet, I signed up for the daily tips and reminders.

Here's a link if anyone is interested:

I also like the articles on their website. Check it out if you haven't visited before.
