So I've been vegetarian for 7 days and I'm wanting to become vegan. I live with my mom for the next 8 months until I go off to college. She finally let me go vegetarian but not vegan. I need friends who are vegan and vegetarian to help me out with this so I don't feel so alone. Secretly going to go vegan without permission.

I had to convince my family too that vegetarian is not going to complicate anything. I just eat the same thing but without the meat or with fake meat.
Slowly transferring to vegan you should just avoid dairy products and buy vegan ones (they're so much tastier anyway) and avoid eggs if you can.
Also make sure your mom also tastes your foods maybe that'll make her come around a little more, like my family did. When you live alone you have complete control over your own diet.

Let me know if there's anything I can do to help. Any questions or specific concerns?

Ask your mom if you can cook a vegan meal to share with the family once a week. Pick tasty and nutritious recopies. This way you snd your mom get more comfortable with it and you build your vegan pantry. decrease the size of your animal based portions . Over the next couple months eat less of them. While increasing vegan foods.
