New vegetarian. Help?

I'm 13 I'll be 14 in a few months and I decided to become a vegetarian. Just because I never really liked meat, only a few meats. But after watching videos and reading things about how they kill animals to make food really made me upset and made me want to be a vegetarian. So I have been doing good so far. I'm not cutting everything out. I'm only keep a couple kinds of fish in my diet which I would still consider myself a vegetarian cause I dont eat it very much. just crab and some salmon. Like I said I barely eat them so I dont think it matters. I have been good with taking enough vitamin D and vitamin C and B 12. I was just wondering if you have any tips for me. Thanks so much!

Hello!
Have a look at these websites:
http://www.vegsoc.org/
http://www.vegansociety.com/
http://www.veganwolf.com/index.html
Two of these are obviously or vegans but they are still very useful.

Here are some of their pages on vitamin B12:
