As of yesterday, I started a mainly vegetarian diet! I went shopping last night and picked up all the food I'll need for this week, and honestly, it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. I'm keeping some fish in my diet for now, but maybe only once or twice a week. It's a meal that my husband and I can enjoy together, and I really love it.

I also think I am going to quit smoking soon, but one thing at a time! I'm going to call and make an appointment with my doctor to discuss my new lifestyle and get on a smoking cessation program.

I really feel good about this decision, but I haven't told anyone other than my husband yet. I don't know why, but I think it's because of the backlash that many vegetarians recieve. How did you all tell your friends and family that you made this decision? How was it recieved?

Thanks for the feedback yesterday! I'm sure I'll have more questions, and this is a really great board for them!
