I was so happy to find this site :)! Everyone has been so wonderful and supportive.

 Up until around 2011, however, I was a HUGE meat eater. It was all I had ever known, growing up. The only veggies I knew were: salad, kiwis, maybe broccoli every once and a while. Focus at breakfast lunch and dinner was always meat meat meat. 

 My grandma had diabetes, and as she began to struggle with cancer, I heard that a raw diet can reverse diabetes, possibly even cancer. Then my mom began to develop diabetes, along with a whole round of other health issues, just like HER mom... I decided right then I wasn't going to be the same. She constantly disobeys her doctor's orders as to her diet- and watching her health decline is very sad.

 I got REALLY fat eating all that meat. By cutting back on meat and exercising (No one moves an inch in my family lmao) I lost 55 lbs. This year I hope to get down to 118. I ran from obesity, toward the light! Lol. It wasn't until 2012 when I made my resolutions, that I began to make some BIG changes.

 January 1st, I became a pescetarian. At first, I was orbiting all my meals around fish, overeating fish- compensating for all the other meat I was ripping clear from my diet. As of today, Jan 30th 2012- I am lacto-vegetarian. Though really- I haven't had sushi OR eggs for two days, but I made the conscience decision today. I still drink milk- but this week I'm going to buy a milk substitute at the store, and begin my transition to dairy free. I haven't put cheese on anything in days, hoorah.

 My birthday is in July, and by then I'd like to be vegan, and bake my own delicious vegan cake :)!! I'm finally excited about foods again... And since my diet change, MY INSOMNIA IS GONE!! I couldn't believe it. I'd suffered from insomnia for years, and was diagnosed very young. I'd tried everything, from pills to rigorous exercise- but even 3 hours at the gym wouldn't wipe me out, or at least give me a FULL night's sleep. It was as simple as changing my diet.

 2012 for me is the year of regaining my life back- the life I SHOULD have, but has been denied to me through my family's bad habits. I'm also beginning volunteering at the Humane Society, so wish me luck!
