  1. Does anyone know of a Vegan trainer in Eugene Oregon or a trainer who is supportive of their clients being Vegan?
  2. Thank you so much kathymtns! Luckily I don't think I am at the point where I have the full symptoms back, but I am having warning signs that I am off track and need to make some changes. I really appreciate the support and your suggestions. I don't have a gym membership at the moment or the equipment at home, however I am hoping to take advantage of the New Years deals and get one soon. I will check out the publications too. I build muscle pretty fast and at one point for a short period of time I was training to be a boxer so I should have some muscle memory left.
  3. Good job! I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's before I became Vegan. I find that eating a lot of processed and gluten products makes the symptoms worse, which is what is happening for me right now. It looks like overall you are doing good on your nutrition so hopefully that will help level it out.
  4. Thank you for sharing. This is very inspirational. I had an active eating disorder for over 15 years and still struggle with it so I know how hard it is to break through and stay motivated.
  5. You look amazing! It takes a lot of dedication and a lot of courage to put yourself out there in s competition. Be proud of yourself no matter what.
  6. Hello everyone. I am currently in Eugene Oregon and I am so glad to have come across this site. I have been Vegan for almost 3 years now. I'm 5'11" and approx 75lbs overweight, ugh. About a year before becoming Vegan i was on medication for hypothyroidism - Hashimoto's Syndrome to be exact, I had rheumatoid arthritis and I had just been told by my doctor she thought I had Lupus. When I became Vegan I was doing fantastic. I was healthy, exercising, I was off my medications, all of the auto immune disease symptoms went away and I lost about 35lbs. The problem was that I didn't find a support system right away. I didn't know anyone who was Vegan and I didn't seek out people that could help keep me motivated. I ended up where I am today which is zero exercise, I'm a junk food Vegan, my auto immune symptoms are almost all back, and I feel like crap pretty much every day. I struggle with motivation and I lack direction. I know I need help but I don't know where to go. I am normally a very happy and vibrant person but at the moment I am feeling pretty desperate. I am hoping to find an affordable Vegan Trainer that can help me get back on track. I know I need the guidance and support. I also know joining this site is step in the right direction.
