Hi
I'm Deanna, I've been a vegan since August of 2004. I never loved meat, but enjoyed poultry and fish, then got ill after a family vacation. We ate a lot of meat and little veggies (long story.) I came home cranky, tired and craving brown rice and veggies. I gave up refined sugar and all animal products that day and never looked back.

I lost 50lbs in the first 7 months. I still have about 10 lbs to go, but would be happy just building muscle and losing more inches. I'm not toned. I used to run quite a bit but my diet was so horrible, the whole routine was exhausting. I did the whole high protein weight lifting thing a few years back while weight training. I was miserable. Now I'd like to get into weight training again, this time as a vegan.

I'm a mom of two boys, both homeschooled, and am a college student myself. I'm enjoying this website, as so many bodybuilding sites are geared towards high protein meat eating diets. I look forward to chatting with you all. :D

Hey Deanna,

Welcome to our website! I'm glad you like it. We have some pretty awesome people here. There is a lot of information and we have quite a bit of fun too. I consider a lot of people on here to be my friends, and I've never even met them in person.

Have a great time exploring the site and I look forward to getting to know you better.

All the best!

-Robert

Hey Deanna welcome. I see in your profile that you're into attachment parenting. That's awesome, me and my wife are into that too. Especially Dr. Sears style

Welcome to the site, Deanna!

Your screen name brings up good memories. I was born in Vermont, lived there for a lot of years and did a fair amount of hiking while I was there. I miss the hiking.

Cool to see another homeschool parent on here, too. :)
