January 2014:
Seeing as how it's been three years, I thought it might be time to add something to this.

In my time here, I have come to understand myself more. I have gone through good times and bad, weight losses and gains, victories and errors. I even went through a complete career flip from a professional baker to a personal trainer.

Old goals were met, new goals have been set. As I grow into this new person I have become, new challenges make me determined to overcome them, which causes even loftier goals.

I am still a work in progress. I will ALWAYS be a work in progress. And that is exactly how I want it to be.

January 2011:
I'm Raven (Before you ask, yes. That -is- my legal name), and I'm hoping that finally being able to talk to people who understand how hard this road to a 'healthy new you' can be will be what I need to get down the last end of that journey and start anew. Most of my friends are skinny/fit people who really don't get how difficult this is. Although my boyfriend is very supportive of me, he's also one of those people who can eat a whole pizza and not gain a pound. Somehow I don't think he really gets it either.

Although I'd always been fairly chunky, even as a child, my highest recorded weight was 265lbs at age 14. This came about after an operation at age 13 restricted me from doing the only thing I really wanted to do, so I stopped doing everything and ate through my unhappiness. Many failed attempts, and even more failed starts, later, I finally started taking off some of the weight during high school. I got down to 190 in grade 12 and have been about that, give or take a few pounds, since I graduated in 2007. I'm determined to shed the rest of it so I can finally be in a healthy BMI range for the first time.

Hopefully 2011 will bring me the ability to finally be a healthy, happy, and active person.

I love animals more than I like most people, but sometimes it's nice to talk to something that can answer in a language you understand.

I'm lame on the fly, exceedingly sarcastic, and can spit out puns easier than most people breathe.

    I hear ya! I don't have any animals to take with me right now, but my boyfriend and I want cats, so I won't move to a place that doesn't allow them. That said, I also don't want to live in a place that allows dogs... I can't sleep with barking during the night or anything like that.

    Good luck, I hope you find a place soon!

    P.S. - Did you try looking at people renting three-family houses? A lot of times they tend to be more forgiving about animals.
