Hi, I've visited this board many times before finally signing up. I really like it here. I've been working out for many years now, but am just starting to really get into weight lifting the past few months. I was a cardio and yoga junkie before.

I was a lacto-ovo vegetarian (very little eggs and dairy though) for 10 months about 4 months ago, but for some reason meat starting slipping back into my diet again. Basically, I had meat one day and the "logic" was, "Well, I guess I can't be a vegetarian anymore." Not that I started eating a lot of meat. I had it about once a week. But now, I want to go back to the way I ate before because I feel better physically and mentally. So I'm hoping this board will be my support (since I know no other vegetarians and no other fitness buffs).

I will share this because I think it is weird. But when family memebers saw me eating meat again, they were all happy and glad. I didn't get it. I think they should have been disappointed! Anyways, it's time for me to recommit. :P

Welcome to the forum! Great to have you here. You will be able to find all the support and info you need here on the forum to have a successful vegan athletic lifestyle.

We have a great group so I'm sure you'll make a bunch of new friends too!

Where abouts in Canada are you living? I'm a Canadian citizen (Dual with US), but I was born in the US and I live here in Oregon. I visit friends and family in B.C. Canada somewhat frequently.

All the best and welcome aboard!

Yeah, 100% of my Dad's family is in Canada, so it's fitting that now I work for a Canadian company based in the region where my family is!

My in-laws would probably throw a big gloating party if they ever saw me eating meat! That's just one tiny reason on a huge pile of reasons to never go omni again! Welcome back!
