Hi everyone,

I joined this forum in July (or was it August) of this year, wrote an introduction but it never got approved!

I'm 26 (will be 27 next month, and feels kinda scary I will be hitting my late 20s very soon), female, and a kiwi :-) I've been vegan for nearly 4 years and it was the best decision I made for my conscience, animal welfare, environment, and my health. I also have a son, who is nearly 3, and he is also vegan.

I've decided to enter my first bodybuilding competition in May 2012, so gives me sufficient time to diet and train for it. I am aiming for something between figure and fitness model in terms of muscle definition and body fat. I have four federations to choose from, but am leaning towards NABBA for my first competition.

In terms of how I look, I'm 176cm tall and currently weigh between 63 to 64kg. My body fat percentage is currently at 20%. What would be a good weight and BF% to aim for?

I'm also have a blog, but I'm not sure if I am allowed to promote it in a signature.

D :-)

Hi Kia! That is an awesome goal of entering a BB comp next year! I'm about to turn 29, so I understand you being bummed about your age. :) I've been vegan about 6 years now, and I consider that one of the smartest, most responsible choices I've made! If I had children, they would be vegan too-- my 3 dogs are vegan.
I'm sure you can list your blog in your sig. I've seen this on others posters' sigs. I'd love to see your photos!
