Well, here we go. I'm currently an extremely unhealthy 6'0" 290lbs mess, and I'm feeling closer to ready for a lifestyle change than ever. I currently live with family (all even more unhealthy than I with no desire to change), and I'm tired of being this guy. Luckily, I will be moving to Texas here shortly. As a result, I will be removed from this situation, which I hope will make it a little easier to make a lifestyle change. Anyway, I have some family members (outside of this home) that live a vegetarian and/or vegan lifestyle and it's pretty appealing. I admire the energy they all have. However, I come from a football and weight-training background, so I've been worried about the effects a vegan change would have on my strength and muscle mass. Man am I relieved to have found veganbodybuilding.com. Long story short, I'm excited for the future and can't wait to see the results.
