A quick little intro... my name is Ray and I am from New Hampshire. Today is day #1 of being a vegetarian (I am in the transition phase).



I am a Middle School teacher and also a Martial Arts instructor. Lately, my cholesterol (and frankly my weight) has been going through the roof. I am in the process of taking back control of both. It is my poor eating habits that have done this to me and only I, myself, am to blame.



So, I am taking on this path of Vegetarianism as it aligns well with my Eastern Philosophy (I am a Daoist) and with my martial arts philosophies. I feel that these choices can help me take back my life and put me on the fast track to a healthy living.



Thank you for reading my intro! I look forward to learning from you all.

Welcome Ray.



NH is great! I grew up there and can't wait to be back!

Welcome, Ray!



Boston native, here (now ex-pat). Love NH. Went on many vacations there, and took advantage of tax-free shopping--yay!



Good luck on your vegetarian journey and getting your cholesterol under control. Alas, I too, have a cholesterol problem (268). I'm a new veggie (1 month) and am easing into a McDougall-type program. Keep us posted on your progress!



***Trivia***:

I'm a member of The Free State Project and voted for the Free State--New Hampshire won ! If this is Greek to you, here's the link: http://www.freestateproject.org/. Many interesting things going on up in NH.
