Just go slowly, you can try it for two weeks. You may cave in and eat something that is not veggie, but it takes time and do not put pressure on yourself, it is a lifestyle change. I would get some books and read up on it. You have to educate yourself.
Where do you live? You can always find restruants and shops that are for vegetarian/ vegan.
Good luck and dont give up. If you fall just get back up, and do not listen to the negative, listen to how your body is feeling ( I sound like a hippie )

I agree with both Hayley & DearBandit to take it slow, especially if you are a regular meat eater. I would recommend replacing one meal a day and working your way up to one day a week.
Ease into it and get some fun recipes, you'll be surprised at all the delicious vegetarian food options! Be sure and take some protein vitamins!
