Greetings and welcome to my world

Hi, I'm here like everyone else, I need to take off some extra pounds (113). I really miss being able to do things I use to like: dancing, biking, even simply walking up stairs.
My goals are to feel better about myself, to feel better physically and mentally. To not avoid mirrors whenever possible.
I working out again, it's been awhile because of a knee injury. I'm really trying to get a good handle on the food end of things, it seems to be my big trouble spot.

Okay now that those are out of the way.
I'm from Maine, moved to Raleigh about 14 years ago for a new start and I'm still here. I got married last Halloween to the most wonderful man in my world. We've got 8 cats that have adopted us. They are the laughter when times are hard. Right now I'm working part time at Halloween Zone in Crabtree Valley Mall, stop in and see us if you have the chance. My husband, Brett, is a Certified Chef and is managing a Restaurant in the food court there as well. We are both looking for other jobs. We are also in the process of restoring our 1988 Volkswagen Jetta, a very slow process but well worth it.
I'm an avid reader when I have the time. I read a bit of everything including: Laural K. Hamilton, Robert Jordon, Poppy Z. Brite, Mercedes Lackey, Marion Zimmer Bradley.... the list goes on.
I love movies, Aliens is my all time favorite tied with 300 right now.
Music is almost always in our home. It can be anything from Frank Sinatra to Slipknot. Goth/Industrial top our play lists.
Secrets of Success
This user doesn't have any secrets of success.
Hee. Time and money. My husband says you either have one or the other, but never both at the same time!
The first goth site to look at I'd recommend is Tempest's. She and Ariella were out here giving a workshop last year was it? Anywho. nice lady, and beautiful dancer. Her site is: http://www.darklydramatic.com/tempest/gbd.
You can google for gothic bellydance, or "raks gothique" for more informaiton.
