Hello, my name is Amy. I'm here to decide whether being vegetarian is right for me. I'm currently 210 lbs. at 5'1". That's very very heavy for my height.All of the females in my family are obese. My grandmother was over 300lbs. at 4'11". I'm determined not to allow my genetic predisposition ruin my quality of life. I'm going to be different and I believe that vegetarianism can help me accomplish this. I'm trying to make my body healthier and stronger as my immune system isn't so great right now. I also look forward to talking with all you wonderful people here at Veggieboards! I hope to make some new friends and gain some insight in how to better care for my body.
