Another California Newbie

#1 Postby veganmadre » Tue Aug 23, 2005 6:56 pm

Hi! I'm a vegan mom of two who stumbled upon this site with the help of my wonderful vegan body building boyfriend. I've also recently become interested in bulking up. For the longest time, I was soley concerned with being "thin". Now, 50 lbs later,I see thin women as in health as poor as mine used to me. So, I'm enlisting the help of this site to get me in gear.

awesome-oooaaaaaa. That's cool man, I hope you find what you need. Well I am sure you will, unless you're looking for leprechauns or something like that. For instance, gremlins.

Welcome! I agree, being super thin is no better than being fat. Fit is the only way to go!

Thank you all for the wonderful welcome! I'm 24 y/o and have two LITTLE girls - one will be 3 in October and the other is 9 months. I have to agree with compassionategirl that 6 seems like a lot to me! Let alone 12! whew.

PS - anyone know how to shrink photo size without making it as small as mine appears??

I don't see a photo for you at all. If you'd like to email the image, I will sort it out for you. My email address is thecanemail@yahoo.com
