Nice to meet you and welcome to the team! I love your honesty and can relate to almost every point. Your last point is well-taken and it may be the one I relate to the most. I've discovered that if I write a blog entry about something I'm dealing with - even when I don't ask for help - my Sparkling Friends often share something from their own experience that helps me put things into the proper perspective, and thus, I receive help that I didn't know how to ask for. :-)

1. I started at 135, and I've lost 8lbs with a goal of 120-124lbs.
2. I have to be really careful about losing weight, because I've had some destructive habits in the past and I can become really obsessed if I don't keep myself in check.
3. I've been using the tracker system, its really helped my balance my calories! I haven't felt this good in years:)
4. I have a really handsome man I've been seeing for almost 2 years.
5.I am studying the law.
6.I'm 23.
7. I am always looking for a new hobby. I am vaguely crafty and creative, and I enjoy making messes (but not cleaning them up.)
8. I would love to be a small business owner one day.
9. I love animals, particularly little, smart dogs and cats.
