Hi! I've been lurking these forums for a couple of months but have only just decided to jump in! Exciting :)

I'm 22, female, have been vegan for 6 months, am 5'3" and weigh a whopping 83lbs. Yep. Bet you don't hear that number often. I come from a long line of tiny little Indian women, I've always eaten what I pleased (and a lot of it), zero eating disorders, I have retardedly high self esteem and have had a bazillion medical tests to work out why the hell I weigh so little and have a near impossible time gaining weight. There has never been a medical explanation and no half-assed 'fat diet' has ever done anything for me.

Enter these forums!

A couple months ago I started training Brazilian jiu jitsu. My skinniness has never bothered me, and I model 'in real life' so it ended up being more a help than a hindrance, so I've never gone super out of my way to gain weight. However, I have a passion for BJJ and would really like to be the best I can be, which means I gotta put on some muscle and some WEIGHT. I'm hoping participating in these forums can help me find out a system for weight gain that works for me. Fingers crossed.

Nice to meet you guys :)

How have you been and how has BJJ been going? Making some progress? Did you ever post some pics on here? You should post some before and after ones! Makes for a good motivational story for future skinny members looking to bulk up.
