Please tell us a bit more about yourself when you get a chance.
I am 22, living in New Haven, Connecticut, working and going back to school this Fall. I grew up in the NY metro area, and have lived in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Long Island, CT, Indiana, and Minneapolis. I was an athlete in high school, not a superstar, but I had my moments, played soccer and track. After going through some tribulations myself, I suppose I became a bit sensitive to the sufferings of animals, and began attempting vegetarianism a few years ago. I have been starting to work out again the past few months, which feels great, just jogging and some basic free weights and calisthenics, so you all are definitely inspirational in proving you can be a vegetarian or vegan and still get ripped.
Interestingly, after staying with a relative on a Farm in the midwest for a few months, I subconsciously started eating more tofu and less meat- The cows seem friendly, but more than a bit suspicious when you look them in the eyes, what can I say- this may have been the start of the vegetarianism for me. I am a supporter of Farm Sanctuary and PETA as well.
OK, thats all for now-
