My name is Charlene. I was introduced via FB to Robert, and seeing how passionate he is about fitness, eating well and being vegan caught my interest.

I live in Toronto, Canada. I'm 47 (!). I had been pretty active for the last 6 years or so, but noticed that went downhill in a big way last year. I tried to get back into my fitness routine this past year, but it's been hit and miss.

I'm with a gym, and recently joined a spinning class. I haven't started the spinning yet - that will be on Tues!

I have a schedule planned out exercise wise, a combination of spinning and workouts, so I'll be following that. I also have an online trainer whose very supportive (and vegan!), who's been doing his damndest in getting me to convert at least to 100% vegetarianism.

I'm about 75-80% vegetarian - still have some work to do! But I'm hoping this 2012 vegan/fitness lifestyle program that Robert started will be the kickstart to a new year!

The prizes sound great, but my priority is to hopefully get some help with my eating and excerising goals. It sure is nice to have support from others who are going through the same thing as me (I hope!) :D

P.S. I don't want to gross anyone out, but because of my age, I'm now going through "physiological changes", or the big "M". It's been a difficult journey, and I noticed how some of the symptoms had kept me from enjoying fitness like I once did.

Welcome Charlene!

Great to see you here. Thanks for the shout out. I hope you enjoy the forum community and have a great time here.

I visited Toronto earlier this year and I loved it! I'm sure I'll be back soon.

Happy New Year!

-Robert

Hi Charlene!

Hope your spin class will be awesome!! Welcome to the VBB forum and thanks for sharing your story. I hope you'll find this website to be a wealth of information and encouragement. As you'll find, being vegan isn't hard when you have the proper information and tools. :)

Oh, and there's nothing gross about "menopause"! It's all part of life, so don't even worry about it! :)

Happy New Year, and best wishes to you on your new journey to vegan health and fitness!!!!!!

-Karen
