Welcome back, Donna! I love your username.
I'm a former vegetarian who also fell off the Veggie Wagon, working my way back to vegetarianism, and eventually veganism. So you are definitely not alone!

Good for you, Donna! There's no shame in restarting....only in giving up. I like your analogy of the caterpillar and butterfly too!

Just keep it slow and steady and make sure the changes you want to make are done in a way that becomes a lifestyle. I have found if I make too many drastic changes, I tend to start getting burnt out, which leads to falling off the wagon.

At any rate, congrats for continuing to focus on health and wellness...essentially, an investment in your future! emoticon

Years ago, and I mean YEARS, I joined this team. Then, I was a full fledged, card carrying Vegan.
But I have fallen... fallen so far down that I can hardly remember. I also can't remember my old user name or password!
So.. this is a whole new me... I thought "Caterpillar" was fitting , as I restart my journey. I see butterflies in my future!
I am restarting as I did back then.. with cutting certain food out of my diet. gradually, until I can call myself a Vegan once more.

Looking forward to meeting and exchanging ideas with all of you!

Donna
