Hey Everyone

#1 Postby LauraC » Fri Jul 07, 2006 7:22 am

Hi! I'm new to the forums. My name is Laura and I'm from NJ.

I've been a vegetarian since I was 12 and am trying to make that last jump to becoming vegan, and also to better my diet/fitness routine and get in better shape.

I'm a big animal lover and try my best to help homeless pets. I love nature and being outside (but not the humidity!)

Looking forward to everyones advice!

Welcome Laura, great to have you here!

I had a huge crush on a girl named Laura one time. She was from Canada and we used to play a lot of table tennis and sailed around on a cruise ship.

We're glad you found our group, and awesome work with homeless animals.

We look forward to hearing more from you. Enjoy the outdoors, welcome aboard!

Thanks for the welcomes! To answer a question above:

I'm 22, and my fitness goals right now are to lose the few pounds I've gained in college....I'm finding it hard to lose weight though since I'm not actually overweight! (I made a post about it in the Women's Fitness section) and also to become stronger and increase my endurance.

Thanks again everyone for making me feel welcome! :D

Welcome Laura :D

Simply going vegan...assuming you avoid the really really bad stuff should make you lose weight without any extra effort thanks to ridding your body of dairy.

No human can call themselves liberal or radical or even a conservative advocate of fair play, if they contribute in any way to the pain and suffering of other beings.
