I figured I ought to write a real introduction, so here it goes!

I first realized I was overweight when I was in middle school. My weight steadily increased, starting from the 120s in eighth grade to the upper 140s-early 150s by senior year. During my freshman year of college, I got up to the upper 160s-early 170s. Yikes! For a 5'0" tall eighteen-year-old, that's no bueno.

I did my first Walt Disney World internship in the spring semester of my freshman year, and dropped down to 139. Over the next four years of college, my weight continued to wobble between the 140s to the 150s. I did a second WDW internship in the summer of 2009- right before my December graduation and my March wedding. I managed to hit the upper 130s-early 140s and stayed there until the wedding was over.

However, after the wedding, I definitely gained the newlywed nine. I was up to 154 and steadily gaining. Now that I'm out of school, I have a kitchen to cook in and more time to work out. So I've decided to buckle down and finally get down to the healthy weight I ought to be! (And getting thinner will definitely be a major perk.)

And now, I suppose a little about me, myself, personally. My name is Caitlin, I'm twenty-three (and a half), and I've been married for almost six months. I graduated in December 2009 with a major in theater and a minor in English. What am I going to do with it? No clue. At the moment, I'm putting my costuming skills to work in the alterations department of a bridal shop. I've been cooking and baking since I was little, and I also love sewing, reading, writing, and watching way too many canceled TV shows on Netflix.

    In Aquarius the Sun is eccentric and original. You're apt to be a superb thinker, and your ideas are frequently advanced, no matter what field of profession you select. Often, your unique approaches to problem solving are viewed as too radical and unworkable, but you prefer to think of them as advanced and progressive instead. Unconventional and outspoken, you see your role as the rebel and the person who rejects worn out traditions and old ways of operating. You like to be with those ushering in the new order and fostering advanced thinking.

    Paradoxically, you're a good team player, but one who must have personal freedom. You don't like to feel fenced in. While you're headstrong and inflexible in your ways, you can work very effectively within a large group. You have complete respect for the sound ideas put forward by others. You are aloof and detached, and your concerns are directed toward society rather than to the problems of any one person. You are somewhat impersonal most of the time. You're more emotionally involved with your work than you are with people. You can be highly critical and demanding in a position of authority. Nonetheless, you are a strong leader and organizer. You have a deep understanding of human nature, but often you lack sensitivity to the emotional content of many situations.

    You thrive on change and managing the unexpected. Always ahead of your time, you are viewed by everyone as being different and unusual, labels you don't mind accepting. You pride yourself on your ability to find a better way of doing the job. Sometimes you lack follow through, and you always dislike routine. You like to take chances and keep everything stirred up. Occasionally, you enjoy antagonizing people in positions of authority, and stimulating a good argument now and then. You don't mind that you are seen as a bit unusual, in fact, you may encourage this image.

    Equality, freedom and fairness are all important issues for you. You strongly subscribe to the doctrine that all people are created equal and should have the same rights and opportunities. In this regard, you are likely to be classified as a progressive and often associated with humanitarian issues and causes. Though you are very involved with such matters, your approach is always somewhat in the abstract, with ideological concepts, the sort that don't usually stem from true emotions. Your approach is often very impersonal and detached.

    Friendly and sociable, you may have a wide circle of acquaintances. Friends are very important to you. Intellectually oriented, you are happiest with friends that share common ideas and interests. Strangely, you find it more difficult to cultivate a truly satisfying intimate relationship. This aloofness exists because feelings are rarely expressed outwardly, and you usually seem distant. You resist anything or anyone threatening your independence.
