Hello all
I just found this beautiful forum and I am very impressed and happy I found you!
I am on a quest to change my life and lifestyle - I am a very very new vegan after years and years of being vegetarian - and this looks exactly what I was looking for: a nice and warm vegan community with lot of info and interesting threads.

I am 30yo, male and a bit of a fashion victim, I work in a shop and I began my trip to a more ethical living years ago. at the moment I am in a difficult situation, which I am trying to tackle in the correct way but having read too much I am very confused :)
I am naturally very skinny, I never really went to the gym, but in the last years or so I got this unpleasant belly fat that is now making me feel uncomfortable with my body shape and I realized I am not eating very healthy plus I really should do something to get the body I always dreamed about.

This was a decision that was very long to take for me, I am extremely lazy LOL (the book-worm type of laziness), but I decided I would stop complaining about my self-image and I would make progresses towards a better living and a healthier diet.
Gym will need to be involved in this, I don't know how exactly at the moment as I am a complete novice and here in Bologna where I live gyms are not exactly easy to find or open very much during the evening. Also getting the right food might be daunting - with next to nothing specialized shops or supermarkets all selling the same kind of not-so-nice tofu and seitan!

I know it will be a difficult path but also rewarding and I am here to start my first steps.
I hope you will forgive my complete naivety about pretty much everything related to fitness and I also hope I will find here support and good advises and the necessary feedback.

In return I certainly can share all my enthusiasm and passion, especially for friendship, cooking (I'm a pro on that, for sure!) and other geek things here and there. I also love music and playing games, but that's another story!

thank you for reading this and
a big hug from Itaaaaaaly!

Palicao

Sounds like you could be my brother Palicao... fashion victim in his 30's, skinny, a little lazy sometimes etc etc. Haha! Welcome to VBB anyway, nice to have you on here. This is a great community that is constantly growing (with both members and knowledge) and I am sure you will settle in and feel at home really fast.

Also nice to read that you enjoy cooking, another one of my passions. I have a vegan food/recipe thread on here somewhere that you might want to hunt down at some point ?! Look forward to seeing you around the board posting more, all the best MF.

I am lurking around trying to find where to start as this forum is full of contents and inspirations.

At the moment I am playing animal crossing like there is not tomorrow :3 but I am an old mmo addict.

I started to play an Animal Crossing on DS but i don't like it so much.
Do you know Neverwinter? It's a good MMO with beautiful graphics. I played it for a few days with my brother.
