Hiya!<br><br><br><br>
Gosh, I was all itchin to post and introduce myself and now I have this big blank box in front of me that I'm supposed to fill and I'm drawing a blank. *sigh*I'll do my best. :)<br><br><br><br>
My name is Joy, I'm 25 years old and I live in Richmond, Virginia. But not for long. In June I'm moving to Leicester, North Carolina (Which is near Asheville, which btw is I believe 8th in the top 10 veggie friendly cities in the U.S. according to PETA) I soooo cannot wait any longer. Its beautiful there, in the foothills of appalachia. And there are cows and goats and sheep on the side of the road! I'm a city girl so this really excites me. I'm a dork, what can I say.<br><br><br><br>
Enough about that. Lets talk about me. I was a vegetarian in high school and then one day I was super hungry and stooped to the level of eating meat. Then I continued to do so for a few years. I've now gone back to a vegetarian diet and I'm preparing to go full on vegan, asap.<br><br><br><br>
I live with my parents, my brother and our 7 cats. yes. 7. 3 are mine and are coming with me in June. 4 belong to my parents.<br><br><br><br>
What do I do? Not a whole lot. I don' t have a job at the moment. I'm concentrating on being positive and writing here and there. (I'm an aspiring writer like just about everyone else) I love to garden, I'm teaching myself to knit and crochet, I love music-folk, irish folk, appalachain folk, blues, cajun and zydeco,classical, jazz. I'm not much on pop music. I'm learning about this big huge crazy fad scrapbooking. (no, I'm not a stay-at-home mom, I just act like one)<br><br><br><br>
Lets see, not much else. Except for one thing. I'm really into the fat-acceptance/size-acceptance movement. I just think there are so many other worthwhile things to worry about then the size of one's waistline. And I don't think people should be judged by that either. check out <a href="http://www.naafa.org" target="_blank">www.naafa.org</a> if you're interested or curious. Our national convention is coming up this August in L.A.<br><br><br><br>
That's all for now, have a great and blessed day/evening!<br><br><br><br>

Hello "soon to be" vegan!!!!!! GO vegan!!!!!!<br><br><br><br>
Whats this about size??.......I'm a lean bodybuilding<br><br>
weener (endeavouring to build vegan muscle that is!)....<br><br>
My suggestion for you is to consider using exericse weights to weight ratio your size in harmony with your weight(?) so you can still bulk with muscle rather than fat, supposing you want to give it a try... As for me though I was never big to begin with, just average but grow bigger thru exercise. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> howabout you?<br><br><br><br>
BTW-}}} Here's a random site I found for writers ->>><br><br><a href="http://www.webdiner.com/bps/writers/writers.htm" target="_blank">http://www.webdiner.com/bps/writers/writers.htm</a>

Appalachia as in the area of the Appalachain mountains. I don't know how correct it is, but I've heard it used once or twice.<br><br><br><br>
As for weights and whatnot, I must admit I don't do that. I do excercise 3-5 times a week however...and I'm still big. go figure. guess I just don't do it "right".<br><br><br><br>
Thanks all for the welcome! I'll be posting on real topics sooner or later, until then I'll be lurkin' beneath the surface. :)<br><br><br><br>
take care,<br><br><br><br>
Joy
