Hello from Montana

#1 Postby MontanaVegan » Sun May 07, 2006 12:15 pm

Hi, my name is Jason, I'm from Billings Montana.
I'm 42 years old, been lurking around the boards for a couple months.
There is so much good information here.
The people here seem very friendly and helpful.
I don't think that I've read a harsh post yet.

My weight and elevated cholesterol and BP got me interested in a healthy lifestyle.
I had the Standard American Diet, on my way to a heart attack.
I started walking 4 miles per day about a year ago.
2 months ago, I started lifting weights.

I've been striving for vegan since December 2005.
2-3 times per month I find myself eating something that I shouldn't
Either from a craving or I find myself on the road and hungry.
I would like to be as close to raw vegan as possible.

My health and fitness knowledge is much behind most of the poeple here.
But I may be able to help with computer related questions.
I'm not a full fledged computer geek, just knowledgable in a variety of applications.

Thanks for the great website.

Welcome MontanaVegan!

I have fond memories of summers spent in Montana & Idaho. Beautiful country!

Welcome ! :D
Out of my mind...Back in five minutes.

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.
