Hello From Northern Califonia

#1 Postby Wimmy » Sun Jan 07, 2007 10:56 pm

Hello,

My name is Wimmy, I live in beautiful sonoma county california. I have been vegan for a about 5 years now, I love it. I once weighted 220lbs, now am 155 and hopefully droping more, ideally I would like to weigh no more than 140. 15 more lbs to go.

I love to cook and eat!! Which vegan or not gets me into a bit of a struggle when it comes to my weight loss.

I do a little bit of everything in my work out and life style. I do about 45 min of cardio, after that I do weights, stretching and yoga....I fall off the wagon alot, but I have no problem getting right back on it <when it comes to working out>

I have been married 5 years, my husband and I have been together 10 years. We have an awsome releationship...he is a meat eater, which makes eating together a little hard, we manage. He even eats whatever I make :)

I have 2 great cats and a Wonderful Bearded dragon. We are just one big happy family.

Love, Light and laughter.
Wimmy

Welcome Wimmy!

Northern California is beautiful! One of the best places around period! I'm from Oregon, so not too far away and I find myself down there nearly every year.

Thanks for the great intro and welcome to our website forum! You'll meet a lot of cool people here, learn lots of information and you'll feel right at home with our online vegan family.

We're happy to have you here, welcome aboard!

Oh, you'll see me on the boards. I've got over 5,000 posts and I run this forum so I'm around :)

I visit San Francisco, Sebastopol, and areas around there. I have some friends who live there and I compete in bodybuilding shows in Oakland and Sacramento.

Seaside is nice, I ran the Hood to Coast run a few years back and finished up there.

I'm sure we have other members from your area too, but you'll meet great people from all over the world soon.
