hi

#1 Postby ian b » Thu Jun 01, 2006 1:32 pm

i've been reading the forums for a while now and have finally decided to join. i'm not a true vegan - still have a little dairy and eggs but i guess i'm moving that way (a friend showed me a book that's made me realize even though i don't eat meat, i could still eat much better.)

i've been into fitness for about ten years, since catching a glimpse of my 6'1 128 lb body in a window. i'm now about 195 give or take a couple.

i suppose that's about it. i look forward to participating in the forums.

Hi Ian B! I just joined up myself, good to have another Texan on board (even if you are from the east side . . . :P :) ).

Sounds like you are on the right track for being a fit vegan. Are you into any sports? What sort of training do you do?

Hey Ian,

Thanks for joining us. We have a huge Texas following :) More Texans on here than any other regional area I think.

Check the General Discussion are and you'll find some posts from the group of Texans here.

I hope you have a great time on the forum, learn lots of stuff that will help you get over to a complete vegan diet, and meet some cool people too.

All the best and welcome aboard!

these ARE fast replies. i do a lot of weight training. and unfortunately i guess i'm now at that age (31) where i have to do cardio. i do some martial arts - philipino and mixed stuff when i can. i work 16 hour days at a treatment center and now i'm back in school so training of any sort has gotten tough. but hopefully this will halp keep me focussed.

Yeah, we're pretty friendly around here :)

Wow, 16-hour days!!! That must be tough! I've done some 12 and 14-hour days in the past, but only a few of them, never 16 and never on a regular basis.

Eat well and rest well :) All the best,
