"A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government."

Hello, my name is Heather and this is the first time I've ever joined a group to help me to reduce my stress. At first I wouldn't consider my life stressful, but after taking the stress quiz it really got me to thinking. I'm a single mother in the military at a secretarian job. I'm not overweight and I'm looking to lose 10 pounds (started 2.5 weeks ago). So far I've lost 3 pounds, which I'm happy about. But looking at my caloric intake this week has gotten me to worry if I will meet my goal on time. I've noticed that I turn to little things here and there to either celebrate little victories or to say, "I'm a little stressed, I need this". I do have a boyfriend, but his daughters have been visiting in the last two weeks. I've seen my stress increase because his ex came along with the girls and I haven't been able to spend much time with him. So, I realized that I need a support system aside from him. He's wonderful and all, but when he's unavailable, I need a support system aside from myself. I look forward to working on my stress and meeting some new people.
