I went vegan a year ago on the back of being mostly vegetarian. Back then for health reasons. I just told people I'm testing it out to see if I feel better for a month, and after that was true, I told them I had no reason to switch back. I only introduced them (and myself) to the ethics later. As for the awkwardness. Yes. It was awkward, but the people around you will adjust relatively quickly, especially if you're willing to help them out (for example cooking vegan meals).
