Hello, and introduction.

#1 Postby Startingover » Sun Sep 03, 2006 11:00 am

Hi all. I am a male in my mid thirties. I am just starting a new chapter in my life by entering grad school. I am also going to begin bodybuilding and eating properly again (as close to whole-food vegan as possible).

This seems like a very good spot for information and advice.

I'm looking forward to exchanging ideas with all of you.

PS. I intend on keeping a log of my training in the online journal forum.

Have a good one, all.

Welcome to the group!

I've found that keeping a log is really helpful. There are some forum members who help me remember to keep one too.

Thanks for finding our group and I hope you have fun here. We have a great group of people, all kinds of athletes and fit vegans with a ton of info and inspiration.

All the best, and welcome aboard!

Hello!! First, I would like to thank you for the invitation to join your group, Robert. I see that you have helped so many, so there is hope? LOL I am a vegetarian seeking a greater lifestyle in becoming a total vegan. I am a woman and animal lover. I am in my 40's and also a wife, a mom, a student, an artist and a free lance writer. Fitness is important to me as I get older and stay active. I enjoy hiking, skiing and learning how to surf. Butt mainly LOL, I sit or stand more than I would like on a daily basis so I am interested in obtaining increased energy, gaining some muscle and losing a few pounds. I am grateful for the support that you provide here so we can follow along and learn.

Welcome Chickpea! You just highjacked the intro of Startingover.
Maybe some Admin can put you post into an intro topic for you!
But anyway: Welcome again. Hopefully you find some help to reach you goals in this great forum!
