Hey all...

So, I am trying my best to completely go vegan and get fit... I did Veganuary and loved it, felt amazing but slipped back in to fish and dairy and it's all gone wrong. So, I am currently 15 stone and 5"8' 30 years old and always tired and worn out... and now completely against sustenance through animals products.

So I am just saying hey for the minute and I will have a look through the site, then get back with my current stats etc and then push for my goals. I need a lot of support on this one as my mind is buzzing on the change, which I am looking forward too. But I need to implement training and diet accordingly so will hopefully be getting some inspiration and support from you all and advice.

I have to walk the dogs now, but I will be back once I have done that and I can get into the nitty gritty of it all. 8)

Sorry, that wasn't the worlds longest dog walk, but in fact a painful upgrade on Windows 8. I have 3 Border collies and an adoptive great Dane that belongs to my partner. 8)

Hi there!

Congratulations on making such a huge step towards a healthy lifestyle. Veganism is about compassion, including for ourselves. You are attempting to undo patterns that took years, if not decades to create.

Here's a quote I love about Patience, from the book Patience: The Art of Peaceful Living:

With patience compassion arises;
with patience wisdom arises;
with patience we are at peace.

Celebrate all the good, positive, beautiful things you do. We live in a world where there is pretty consistent pressure to do the complete opposite of living a vegan lifestyle. Becoming vegan for the long haul is not too different from building muscle, at least for many: it takes time, knowledge, and perseverance.

I hope this helps.

Love,
Another Human

Rad! Boarder collies are the best i grew up with them. Never had a great Dane but they seem cool.
