Greetings!

Hello From Massachusetts!

I have been "lurking" on this site for quite a while now and finally decided it was time to register and say hello. I have been vegan for two years (this month is my veganniversary) and last month I quit smoking and joined a gym. I am working with a personal trainer who I love -- she royally kicks my butt and it's awesome: I've never felt better in my life. I hope to bulk up my scrawny frame and continue to feel and look better. It was actually a member on this site, whose photos I saw, that inspired me to take this step. I looked at him and said "I want a body like THAT!"

Personally, I am 29, Buddhist, happily partnered, a bookworm, a poet, love animals, and I'm a kick-a** cook.

It's great to be here! I look forward to taking this journey with all of you.

Peace & Best Wishes,
Donn

Welcome Donn!

I hope you put some great vegan recipies into the section!
Concerning bulkingup: Eat enough and let your PT kick your a** (hopefully you enjoy it :wink: )! This combination will work!

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.

Thank you so much for the warm welcome!

And yes, finbarrio, I live in the Boston area (Cambridge). I'm a recent East Coast transplant from Iowa, and I've never been to the Cape! I can't wait to go, I've heard it's beautiful!

It's great to be with such a supportive team. Thank you all again! :heart:
