:) Yep, the video in my post is from a couple of years ago when I first was I just became a Vegan... I weighed 280 then. The picture in my avatar is from me a month ago where I my weight is 233. I was a powerlifter but I switched over to bodybuilding because I want to be strong and lean. Right now I am about 228 and my goal is to get down in the 195-190 range.

Thanks man, its good to be here! We gotta prove that meat doesn't build muscle. When I am at the gym I get stuff like, "he must eat meat to get so big" and "he must take steriods since to get that strong without meat" and its nuts. I try to tell people in the gym I eat lots of soy and veggies and fruit, I lift 5 days a week of compound, multijoint lifts, and I sleep well. Its all about dedication and people on here are living proof that meat free builds beautiful bodies! :)

Yeah, totally. I've been hoping for many months that more forum members will start getting together. I've had GREAT times with veggymeggy, vamprilla, Hero, loveliberate, VeganEssentials, andesuma, and others over the past year.

Let's get more people hanging out! I met some of wannalift's friends here in Eugene, and she said he was pretty cool. He was also one of the first guys ever to write to me when I started my website 4 years ago.

There are others in that area too I believe. Have fun!

I actually live about an hour out of Pittsburgh. Have you heard of Indiana University of PA? I live around that area. Its just generally easier to say pittsburgh because everybody knows where that is. I may be going to Pitt in the fall for a Masters, so if I do I will definetely have to hang out.

Go Steelers!

Welcome! :D

I echo the others when saying you're huge!

Could I just ask a few stats? What are your numbers in the big three, and how tall are you? Over on www.veganfitness.net, in the power and strength section there is a strength table, so if you post your numbers, I'll get them chalked up :D
