Vegan in 30 Days: Update

Okay, I know I totally dropped the ball (because I have the attention span of a goldfish) and just disappeared without finishing my "Vegan in 30 Days" series.

Well, I will tell you all: I've been a full-fledged vegan since 1 January. I didn't even need to go through the whole process outlined in the book, because I'd eliminated so many things almost immediately after learning about the nastiness of the meat, dairy, and egg/poultry industries.

I've lost 16 lbs with zero effort. We're gonna start an "Ultimate Slim Down Challenge" at work in a couple of weeks and I know I'll lose even more.

I feel great, but I find Taco Bell to be the hardest thing to resist. I know it's just me wanting certain things out of habit -- after all, I ate there almost every day for about a year and a half.

Going vegan wasn't really that hard, and I will remain vegan for the rest of my life, inshAllah.
