Hi. My name is Maritza and I'm 33. Back in October 2005, I started to write in my journal. I started asking myself those important questions we sometime do. Who am I? Why am I here? But most importantly, I asked myself "Am I happy? Sad to say that I wasn't happy. My whole life has been a closed book. A book that only I had the possibility to look into. So I've done some changes in my life. I'm geting closer to happy. And I'm doing these changes JUST FOR ME. It feels good to be able to look at myself now and know that I don't need approval from the world to know I'm OK or happy. I've faced things in my life these past few months that I haven't faced in my whole 33 years of life. I'm glad that I've decided to face life as a whole finally. I don't have to live as a closed book. I'm me and I'm getting a lot closer to happy. For me that's big. Yes I was always able to laugh with others; but it's those times when I'm alone that I used to hate because I didn't know who I really was. Now, I don't need to hide. Where I came from does not define me. I know who I am and I'm glad to say I like who I am.

Personal Information:
Originally from NYC; I now live in CT. I recently have faced many changes in my life. One of the major changes I've faced is accepting who I am and where I came from. Since January 2006 I have made some drastic changes in my life (I bought a house, left my prior job of 4+ years to further my career) I now have a great job that I am learning to love and I have a six year old son.

The best personal information that I can share with you is: Only I can make myself happy.

Other Information:
I'm a counselor and I've decided to put my counseling analysis to work on my weight goal. If you know what you have to do to reach a goal it isn't worth anything if you don't put it into practice.
