Hi! I'm Jennifer from San Francisco; I've been reading the articles and board for awhile, but had some downtime at work so I figured I might as well take the 5 minutes and officially join the community.

I've been a vegetarian since 14, and tried to be vegan while I was a starving student (literally) in college. But I didn't do a very healthful job, so I went back to being veg. for years. Now I am a teacher and am vegan again, and love living in the SF Bay Area because we have a lot of locally grown organic produce at our fingertips.

I've been training with weights for a year, on and off, and recently just got very focused about reducing my body fat %. I'm petite but have 27%BF! Eegads!

So, I'll probably keep you all posted on my journey to toned muscles and lower BF%, and in the meantime, I'll look forward to all the advice, opinions and information that are offered on this site.

Veganmadre-

I lived in Santa Cruz on and off for 6 years. First, during high school, up in Felton (I swear Jerry Garcia lives in Lompico), then during college on both the East and Westsides, and then my first year teaching I worked in Watsonville.

I think in another post you mentioned wanting to work out w/out going to the gym- SC is the best place to live for doing outdoorsy things! Especially when it is so nice like today!!!

We should go for a hike- you with your baby and me with my "baby".

Cheers,
Jenn
