Thanks Lindsay! I would love to visit someplace like that.

It is difficult, even with all of that reading, to repair the disconnect we've all learned growing up and remember that the little blob on your plate used to be an animal. I think I'm sufficiently grossed-out enough to not ever eat meat, but I'm having trouble with dairy. I haven't eaten any cheese, sour cream, etc, in two weeks, but I did use some butter yesterday on bread (I have some in the fridge, but should just throw it out) and now I feel gross and have a coating in my mouth that isn't fun.

A lot of my motivation also has to come from a health standpoint. I'm overweight, have asthma, high blood pressure, and I'm not getting any younger. : ) So part of this involves paying close attention to how I feel after eating those things and then comparing that to how I feel when I eat tons of fresh veggies and fruits. Then I hope eventually, seeing a hunk of cheese in the grocery store won't make me dream of oozing cheesy casseroles.

I am on a stay-cation for two weeks and am going to work on things without having to worry about the structure of being at the office.
