Me near my thinnest--about 165. Still trying to fit back into this dress!

Once upon a time, there was a girl named Jillian. She was a bit of a foodie, and loved to cook. She also liked spending time on the computer and hanging out with her friends... usually at a restaurant. When it was time to celebrate something-- a birthday, an important event, or something great that happened-- she would round up people and go out to eat.
This made Jillian gain a whole bunch of weight in a short amount of time, and made her look not very attractive. Her health also suffered; she would get out of breath easily, her joints ached, and her cholesterol levels got really high. She decided that 27 was too young to feel that way, and that if she wanted to be able to keep doing things she loved, she needed to take better care of herself.

I'm 28, from Peoria, Illinois. I'm a librarian, and I work downtown. I'm an Irish dancer, and I love doing community theatre. I also love to cook and have people over to feed.
I'm a big reader, and I also write my own fiction.
My main genres are fantasy and historical fiction, but I recently finished the first book in a mystery series. I like watching movies, and will give nearly anything a test.
I'm also heavily involved in local community theatre, so if I disappear for a couple days, that's why!
