Time to stop lurking!

#1 Postby Aruna » Wed Feb 22, 2012 7:55 pm

Hello! I have been lurking for a couple weeks now and decided it was time to join. I have been vegan for about 2 years now, and was vegetarian for 9 years before that. I have been going to the gym for the past couple of years, motivated by my desire to do roller derby. I believe there is a saying "You don't do derby to get in shape, you get in shape to do derby". I lost over 30 lbs and reached my goal of becoming an official derby girl. Now I'm looking for another goal and would love to work on lifting more.

I also have a passion for volunteering and spend about 10+ hours a week helping my local no-kill cat shelter.

How have you been? A friend of mine just made a roller derby team in the Bronx. Exciting stuff. Haven't seen you post for a bit, just wanted to say whats up and see how things were going.

Look forward to seeing you around the forum, it's a great little community in here MF.
