Greetings everyone!

Online, I go by the name Ophideus. I reside in the great Garden State, near the state capitol. Robert invited me here, and I also know a few of you from MySpace. I have been Vegan for 3 years now, and 6 months ago I got back into weightlifting (for the umpteenth time). Additional details about me can be found on my profile.

Honestly, I have never been a fan of message boards/forums, but I must admit that the quality of posts and the level of activity here pleasantly surprised me. It is my honor to be given an opportunity to participate in a community populated by so many like-minded individuals.

I look forward to chatting with you guys and gals.

Thanks MontanaVegan

I am also 42. Perhaps we can start our own geriatric weightlifting community - lol

Thanks for joining us, great to see you here!

To be honest, I was never a huge fan of forums or message boards either. I was part of a few, and we've actually had them here for years, just not a high quality one. We started this new one a year and a half ago and I've actually really enjoyed the forum! I've met a ton of people in person, have made some great friends, and learned a heck of a lot.

Enjoy your time here! Welcome aboard!

Welcome ! :D
Out of my mind...Back in five minutes.

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.

I like to see other old timers on this board.
Maybe Robert could set up a subdomain like http://geriatric.veganbodybuilding.com :D
But since I've become vegan and exercise I don't feel geriatric anymore.
Most of my aches and pains have gone away.
I still get sore muscles from lifting (too much maybe) but that's a good thing.

Welcome
Proper nutrition is an art. Every bite is a brush stroke. Every swallow,a new colour. Each meal,a cloud, a tree, a flower a piece of the beautiful painting that you are becoming.

Well thats one whack-job way of putting it.
