Hi all,

I'm 27, single and had an epiphany last January. I saw a picture of my self at my office holiday party and thought , that's not me, but it was. I had gained so much weight since the time I had been photographed that I no longer looked my age, I looked older.

So for the first time in my life I made a New Years resolution to lose weight, with one small clause, I'll start after my birthday.

So I did, I cut out soda, except for the one I get at happy hour at work, started drinkung juice, and (2) 16.9 oz waters a day.

Went to the gym four times a week, was doing real good, and then everthing stalled, I got sick and couldn't go to the gym, but it wasn't all bad, I'm still loosing just vvveeeerrryyy sssllooooowlyy.

Enough about that.

I am one of 9 children. I have 2 older brothers and one younger, the others are all girls, and all younger then me. I still see 3 of my sister regularly, and the other two at family events.
My brothers scattered to the wind and I see them about once a year.

I have a college degree in drafting, an associates(pardon if I spelt that wrong), it's a two year degree that took 6 years to complete. I like being a draftsman, it's fun and and the software is always changeing.

Looking for other Jehovah's Witnesses

I'm not really a withness, I gues you could say I am a lapsed one. I was raised witness, but as an adult there were inconsistancies in what I was taught and those drove me out, but I still believe in the majority if the teaching. I whould love to join the group.

May I?

I am re-joining. I've gained 20lbs after hurting my feet last year and not being able to exercise because of it. Hopefully I can do this again.
