Hey there, I'm new!

#1 Postby yogita chiquita » Fri Feb 24, 2006 8:42 pm

My hubby was right, this really IS a great site! :D

I just wanted to introduce myself - I'm Kristy and I've been vegan for almost a whole year! This is one of the best things I've ever done - for animals, for the earth, for myself - I'm very proud of it! I'm excited to have the opportunity to pick the brains of like-minded folk, it's going to be nice not to feel like the odd-gal out for a change!

Alittle about me - recently married and loving it, I've recently started going back to a formal yoga class after a long hiatus with the occassional self-instruction (I'm just not disciplined enough to do a good job on my own!), and I love snowboarding.

It'll be nice to meet everyone, thanks for having me!

Yep, he's finbarrio, I know he just joined recently. He's been telling me I need to take a gander at your site, that it's more than just bodybuilding, so here I am! Hoping to broaden my vegan horizons a bit here! Recipes, working out, whatever!

Thanks for the welcome!

Oh cool :P

Yeah, I think people are intimidated at first when they hear it is a "bodybuilding" site, which it is, but it is also a general vegan site and this forum is a section of the website and is dedicated to all types of topics from Animal Rights to Relationships to Powerlifting.

I'm really glad you both found the site and enjoy it so far. We have a pretty neat group.

Have fun!

-Robert

Welcome, Yogita :D

It's a bodybuilding site and more - an awesome vegan community. Bodybuilders and vegans alike can feel home here and not be the odd one :)
No one said it would be easy.

Welcome Yogita Chiquita!!! Cute name, hun - I guess that translates to "Mexican Yoga Guru".
I told you this was an awesome site!

Definitely! I guess my view is that this IS a bodybuilding site, and though I'm not a bodybuilder, I really respect them, and I certainly can learn a lot from bodybuilders that will make me a stronger athlete in general. And, I probably have a lot more in common with the people on this forum (the vegan/animal welfare/rights thang) than I do with people on my mountain biking forums. And, when I see picutes of some of the huge and fit people on this forum, I am even more certain that vegan and fitness go hand-in-hand. And, it's good to read and share the experiences of being a vegan athlete. Booyah!
