    Please rediect me, if I'm writing an introduction in the wrong place.

    I have come to whole-food, plant-based nutrition much later than I wish.
    Thirty years ago, for ethical and compassionate reasons, I gave up eating meat, and believed that my new vegetarian diet was both wholesome and cruelty-free. Much more recently, I had my eyes opened to the truth about the dairy and egg industries, which led me, again for compassionate reasons, to a vegan diet. Through browsing, reading, and watching endless videos, I came to learn of the huge benefits to human health that this way of eating can bring. I just need to transition from a junk-food vegan to a fully-fledged wholefood-eating vegan!

    Over the last twenty years, I have gained a huge amount of excess weight, had several health scares, my gallbladder removed, been put on medication to control dangerously high blood pressure, and could see myself increasingly unable to enjoy the active lifestyle I once took for granted.

    I have seen the error of my ways. I am already making big changes. I have lost twenty pounds since the beginning of April, feel much more energetic and clear-headed, and would dearly love to reduce or come off my anti-hypertensives.

    But perhaps my biggest desire is to convince my sons to eat this way. They have many more years ahead of them to reap the benefits, and I hate to see them jeopardising their health. 

    Sorry - I meant this to be short!
    I look forward to finding my way around her a bit more, and to meeting other members.
