I hope that I'm welcome after admitting this. I am not a vegan, but I am in the process of whittling out meat from my diet. I've already completely stopped eating red meat and I am now aiming at removing chicken and eggs. I am training for a figure comp next year. I'm ridding my diet of meat for my health and for the enviornment, I've read about the horror that is the meat industry and don't want to contribute to what they're doing.

I hope I can participate in your discussions, even though I am not completely vegan.

Thanks!

Like Richard said, you'll find plenty of awesomeness. (I say this in my best Napoleon Dynamite voice since I don't actually have a clue what Richard sounds like - though I am sure it is very vegan and muscular :D )

Welcome to the board! I also came upon veganism gradually but with the opposite intentions - I became vegan for ethical reasons and only now am stumbling upon the incredible health benefits, as well!

Great to hear about your interest in fitness competitions. I'm also looking into that route once I become more familiar with intense weight training.

So, anyhoo, welcome!

Welcome CrystalIda,

Well, they haven't kicked me out yet, so I suppose it's okay. I think the most important thing is to be honest, compassionate, and have an open mind... then all things are possible :P.

I am making progress toward veganism, one small step at a time. Some people can change their eating habits cold turkey (so to speak), but for me, I know if I try to change too many things in my life at once, I will fall flat on my face. Then my glasses would be broken and what was once so clear will have become murky and confusing... :lol:

I think it's great to have non-vegans here, but I hope we can help you on your path to becoming one. It really is pretty easy - frankly, I think people give me too much credit for being vegan. And it's fun! Welcome! :D
