Trying to Find Myself in 2012

My name is Teri. I'm 22 years old and I have no idea who I am. I recently married my long time boyfriend and childhood sweetheart, Blake. I live in Utah, but I'm from Nevada. I miss Nevada, but I find it almost easier to live in Utah. So does my husband.

I have a dream to become a published author. I write paranormal romances. My subjects are usually vampires and witches. I have always been fasinated with the romantic lore of vampires... and no I'm not talking about the Twilight ...

I have a dream to become a published author. I write paranormal romances. My subjects are usually vampires and witches. I have always been fasinated with the romantic lore of vampires... and no I'm not talking about the Twilight vampires... I won't lie, I enjoyed those books, but I prefer Anne Rice, Colleen Gleason and Kathryn Smith's views on vampires better.

I am currently going to college to become an accountant. Why? Because I'm good at math and I understand the material. Do I like it? No, not one little bit, but like I said. I'm good at it and after spending the last few years doing nothing with my life I have decided that becoming an accountant is better than nothing. My husband needs the help in this economy.

I'm here because tired of taking those pictures where I just want to disappear into the background. I have tried this before... a few times and have given up. This time may not be much different except that failure doesn't scare me as much as it used too. I've learned to pick myself up and try again.

I used to love to blog. I had a personal blog on blogspot for years, but I've recently closed it down. I've found that I've lost motivation to keep up on it these days. I think it's mostly because I've lost a lot of friends who used to check up on me. I can't say I blame people for not being interested in me anymore. I've really lost touch with what used to make me me! Annoyingly, my husband has reminded me that I've grown up a lot from my old self... and that bothers me more than I think he realizes. I miss my younger self. I was fearless and so full of energy. These days... I rarely leave the house.

My number one and most important goal for 2012 is to find myself again. I have had a number a friends tell me that Romona Flowers from Scott Pilgram VS. The World reminds them of the old me. Yeah, reminds me of me too and you know what!? I want her back. I've decided to use the blog provided for me here on sparkpeople to track my journey. I hope to make some new friends. I also hope to sort out what happened and where I went these last couple years. So please check me out! I'm excited to meet people.

My Goals:
I'm keeping my goals realistic this time. Instead of an amazing goal weight, I'm taking this at a 10% weight loss rate. For the year 2012 I'd like to slim down 50 lbs.

My Program:
I don't have one. I'm just trying to make small changes here and there. They are starting to add up. I'm starting to see a change!

Personal Information:
I am was born and raised in Nevada. I met my husband in Nevada. I adore Nevada, but when I hit around 17 I just couldn't take the small town I'm from anymore and I decided to move to Utah where most of my family is from. My husband's family is from here too. I've been in Tooele, UT for about a year and a half now and I'm thinking this may be where we will settle down. We both miss Nevada, but we're so close that we visit often.

Hey! Thanks for the comments. =)
If only I could have a personal trainer and cook! I'd be skinny next week. LOL!
It's been going good so far, and I'm feeling great. As much as I can't wait to lose the weight, I'm just happy to be back to exercising.

How are things going for you!?

Thank you for the compliment on the scarf. It has been so fun to knit and watch the new colors pop up as I use up the ball of yarn. (It is Knit Picks Chroma Fingering in Midwinter.)

Thanks for the Happy Birthday yesterday!!

Have fun couponing today. I couldn't ever really get into it, and I usually forget my coupons anyway. =P

Hope you're doing well.
