    Hi Margolis...

    I just came across your page. What struck me most was the info you typed in the box under 'other information' cause I can totally relate.

    I will let you enjoy your anonymity...however one big thing that I learned in the past few weeks that I have been here on SP, was that only by letting people know you are loosing weight (not necessarily here on SP), you will get more encouragement PLUS you dont have to hide the fact that you are going to loose weight as if it was a sin! It is a healthy lifestyle change not a diet! Nothing to be ashamed of! I am telling you this cause I too was (till about 2 months ago) paranoid about loosing weight. And at first I acted like you....not want to tell people in real life that I was attempting to loose weight, not wanting to share any personal info, name or pics on SP.

    But what is pushing me forward is not just the ticker going down, but rather opening up and share your experiences. It is what brings us together here on SP, because you are not alone, and friendship, a wise man said once, begins when one says: "What? You too?"

    This is not just a weight loss journey....but rather a journey to help you get out of your defensive shell that you have been building these past years, plus a journey of self discovery. Believe me....I am a very shy and introverted person and never (used to) talk to ANYONE about my weight, cause it was something that made me feel ashamed.

    Do not think that I am forcing you to not remain anonymous!! Far from that!! I dont know whether or not i put my point across. I do not want to hurt your feelings or anything. If you disagree with anything I said, please reply back. I honestly want to help people develop themselves, as I know what it feels like to be in a cage. Only now I am understanding how better one could feel if only we'd open the door to our innerselves just a bit.

    I am 23 and a bit heavier than where you are standing now....however together we can do this :))

    cheers!!
