Hi Kim--

Wow, it really sounds like you're beating yourself up; stop doing that!

I'm sorry to hear that you're having a hard time making this transition--lots of people do. It can be especially hard when one lives with people that aren't supportive or may even be hostile to the idea of vegetarianism...check out the "New Veggies" board and you'll find that you're not alone.

It sounds like you don't have the resources right now to buy and prepare your own food. Could you prepare good-sized, microwaveable vegetarian food (like black bean stew or stuffed squash or something) two or three times a week and have that as your main courses? Maybe you could talk to the person who does the cooking in your home and ask about making the side dishes vegetarian? That way you'd be able to share meals.

Don't give up--make the changes you can make and don't punish yourself for the changes that have to wait.

Good luck!
