Hey. Im new here and Ive recently gone vegetarian. It's been two weeks and a day since my last piece of meat and I'm feeling great. I have had issues with my eating before. I have been anorexic and I feel that becoming vegetarian would be a way for me to control my controlling ways towards foods, if that makes any sense. The only problem is the negative response I seem to be getting from my friends. They really dont seem to understand. I can see there point since I live on a cattle ranch but i wish they would respect and support my decision. I think its better for me and I wish they'd understand.
