Let me tell you something about myself – I’ve always had problems with my weight.
I just couldn’t seem to lose it no matter what I did.
I’d often thought of becoming vegetarian I just didn’t know enough about it.
I had a real problem with being happy because I was so overweight.
I got petty and just needed a way to feel better about myself.
Then I heard about global warming.
The first thing I did was turn on all the lights.
Just so I could make everyone in the world suffer,just a little bit.
It felt relaxing and calmed me down.
It made me feel less of a failure for not being able to lose weight.
Every time I felt a bit down, the lights would go on.
I would also boil the kettle and deliberately not make a cup of tea.
Turning on the washing machine with nothing in it – doomed the world a little more.
I loved it. I didn’t think about my weight at all.
Make that Change
Then I heard that vegetables have feelings too.
That was enough to give me the motive to change.
I knew I would be able to become a vegetarian and lose that weight.
I absolutely love it.
Sometimes I don’t even turn on the lights anymore. I sit in the dark.
Just the thought of having a fridge full of tasty vegetables makes me happy.
They taste so fresh and alive.
Biting into a fresh carrot you can almost hear it scream it’s so fresh.
I feel almost like a serial killer .
The absolute joy in the thought of making those vegetables suffer is what I live for.
I still turn the lights on if I have a particularly bad day.
Is anyone else thinking of becoming a vegetarian for the same reason?
What are the reasons behind your diet?
