Hi! I'm not vegan and not a bodybuilder. In fact, I'm not even vegetarian - yet.


UPDATE: This statement is no longer true. :D

Since I posted my introduction, I've gone from being a "standard american diet" carnivore girl to an "almost vegan" vegetarian girl. Between the support I've gotten from my son (he's 13, and decided to make the switch with me) and all the knowledge and support I've found on this board, it's actually been a fairly easy transition.

Oh yeah, and I've been working out and lifting, lots!

Thanks, everyone! :)

Awesome Michelle!

Great to hear that. Thanks for sharing that with us. That is one of the best things about these kinds of boards; we can really reach a lot of people and inspire life changes that affect so many people, animals, the planet, etc.

It is very nice to have you as part of our group!

All the best on your vegan quest!

-Robert

Hi. I was the same way when I joined. Not vegitarian (or vegan) or into bodybuilding. But Now I'm vegitarian. Trying to do Vegan as much as I can. I just can't seem to take the damn cheese out of my diet :P. But anyway, Welcome! And I hope you have a good time!

Yep yep. Getting milk out of my diet was easy. I already didn't drink it. It's just that stupid cheese.

That's understandable. Cheese products, as it turns out have the highest concentration of casomorphins. Basically a natural and addictive opiate, they reputedly have 1/10 the strength of morphine :shock: Nature puts it there to dope the offspring.

Michelle!!

I am so HAPPY for you, and your 13 year old son. Wow - you must be so proud to have a child that at 13 seems to be making such great moral choices! How awesome that mother and son have changed to a kinder, gentler and more environmentally friendly lifestyle together!!!!

I have always believed that compassion in children should be nurtured. Society works so hard to condition us to lose our innate compassion. :(

Great work!! I am so happy for you.

Glad to hear it Michelle!!! And that's awesome that your son is in it with you, I wish I could convince my parents! (Since I've moved out of the house, they've gone back to regualar meat consumption, and they've never been anywhere near vegan)
