Newbie from Texas

#1 Postby gymmie » Sun Aug 06, 2006 8:57 pm

Hi everyone!

My name is Gymmie and I'm from Texas :)!

About 6 years ago, I lost 75 pounds and kept it off for a good while. But unfortunately it came back. So I'm working on losing it again and keeping it off this time.

At that time, all I did was cardio but it really reshaped my body. I ended up being the smallest size I ever was while weighing 40 pounds MORE than my previous smallest size.

I'm new to Veganism....I was a Vegetarian for several years, but in moving I went back to meat, but I'm back for good now :)!

I was happy to learn of this site and see that you can be Vegan and buff :)!

I look forward to meeting everyone and learning more!
Gymmie in Texas :)

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.
