Haha, thank you, Robert, for the "birthday present" :lol:

Thanks for all of you lovely people who keep supporting and encouraging me. It means a lot to me because i'm so close to this body that i can't really "see" it, and so close to this process that i don't feel that it's such a big deal and with your help i've started to feel proud of myself and really appreciate the work i've done. You can't believe how much envy i have to encounter in my every day life and how much time i spend trying to prove that i'm not an anorectic and defending the vegan lifestyle and the bodybuilding lifestyle. This forum has really been a wonderful escape for me from the everyday world and i appreciate all of you enormously, you people are the best of the best!

Awesome! Amazing how you went from what you were to what you are now. You seem to know a lot about training and nutrition too. I bet it took great determination, keep that up. Congratulations once again:)

Congratulations, your progress is so awesome! Robert posted a facebook link to your progress photos. I suddenly feel like I can tackle the last 10 pounds which shouldn't take more than a couple months but seems overwhelming. Anyway I have to tell you, since you want ghetto-booty, that when I was training earlier this year I developed the most amazing butt. I had been doing walking lunges around a track with 40lbs in a backpack. You don't need to carry that much weight, I worked up to a heavy weight over a few weeks, the results probably will be the same with less weight and proper form. If you try this go easy and light to protect your knees at first. I walked around the track twice, pulling up with my forward leg and not pushing off with my back leg. 30 minutes total twice a week. I wasn't looking for a ghetto-booty AT ALL but it was a super nice side effect.

Hi! First of all congratulations for your hard job! Great results!

I'm new in this webpage and I didn't know where to post this following message:

I'm 23 years-old, 182 cm and 65 kg. I'm vegan and I would like to gain more body muscle. I'm very thin and many people attribute this to being vegan (I was like this even when omnivore) and I want to change their point of view but I don't know how.

Here there should be many people with this same experience. What kind of diet can I follow? What exercise can I do?

I live in Spain.
I do not have access to a gym.

Thanks for any kind of advice!
Marc
