Welcome to our awesome TEAM. Great to have you here. You'll find that we have a very welcome and warm community packed full of tons of awesome vegans :P

Check out all the different sections of the forum and you'll gain lots of insight.

As far as your trainer....I know it's great to have a trainer that you work with directly...but we also have some vegan trainers here who can give you some "vegan fitness" advice. Not that it's too much different than other fitness programs, but you'll have a supportive cast of vegan athletes here.

Take care and keep on postin

-Robert

Welcome elizabeth. :)
Out of my mind...Back in five minutes.

No human can call themselves liberal or radical or even a conservative advocate of fair play, if they contribute in any way to the pain and suffering of other beings.

Hello Elizabeth!
Standing on a hill in my mountain of dreams,
telling myself it's not as hard, hard, hard as it seems.
