Hello, Vegan Candidate Here in Introductions Posted May 20, 2016 Oh my goodness, I'm so sorry for not responding sooner! Things got so busy at work that I forgot I even posted until I checked my personal email for the first time in over a month. Rather than a macrophile (it's a great word!), I'm a -- balance-phile? I'm big into just keeping things simple and well-balanced with a preferable positive outcome. My immediate goal is to lose weight, but it's a lot of weight to lose and will take a year or more. I have weight- and probably diet-related issues, too, that will hopefully clean up with weight loss and a lifestyle change. My ultimate goal is to feel healthy, clean, balanced, and at peace with my footprint in the world.
