Hello All,
I am fairly new to the Vegan world, I have been weight training for 7 years. I am the wife to an awesome meat and potatoes man and mom to 3 meat & potatoes boys :D . I began a Vegan lifestyle about 6 months ago-never felt better! My fitness goals are to compete in a Triathalon in 2008. I will compete in a Bi athalon this summer. First time competitor. A Personal goal is to get my family on the Vegan track!

Good morning chick.
Have a vegan family film night. After watching some video clips on PETA's website they will never want to eat animal products again. :shock: :wink:
