Hey Rebecca!! I'm glad to see that you were able to post this. I hope to see you around the forums and stuff this year, but if not, I understand. I have maaaajor social anxiety too, and when I first started with Sparkpeople I had a really hard time posting, but as I've gotten to know everyone and found that this is the most supportive site EVER, I've found myself more able to post and chat and be active on the boards.
I hope you can too!
Take care, Heather
--Heather-- Feel free to add me to your friends. Looking for: healthy snapchatters, a text accountability buddy and a local spark friend (fsj) with similar goals.
Hi Rebecca! I am 22 from Calgary, Alberta. I am kind of in a similar boat 5'4 and trying to work my way to 140, then hopefully back to 130. I work in the insurance industry but have worked in retail in the past so I sympathize with your busy-ness! My sister and mother both deal with severe social anixety so I know where you are coming from. Be proud of yourself for joining the spark community! It's a big step. I wish you well in goals and feel free to message me or add me as a friend. =)

Hi! I'm Rebecca, I'm 23, 5'5 and almost 140lbs. My goal is to get back to 120lbs. I have some university eduction, but had a rough couple years, so now I'm in the retail workforce. I'm currently a supervisor, but training for assistant manager, so I am busy as all heck.
I have severe social anxiety, so even posting this is a big thing for me. I'll try my best to be active in the forum, and I will always reply to anyone who talks to me, but, honestly, making first contact is a huge challenge for me, so I hope I don't hurt anyone's feelings if I just lurk for a bit.
