*tips my metephorical hat to you all* greetings and salutations. New here, obviously. So on to the questionaire!

1) What's your name?: Bess

2) How old are you?: 26

3) Where do you live?: Minnesota

4) Why do you want to lose weight?: My father found out he has diabetis 6mo. ago, making the third genration in a row on his mother's side to contract it meaning in my family it doesn't skip. Weight loss is one way of fighting off an earlier on set of diabetis, not to mention fight several over things that run in my family concearning the blood and heart. So for health reasons.

5) What are your weight loss goals?: If you ask the weight chart people I need to loose about 200lbs. However that is a very large number, and while possibly obtainable with time I choose to put a current goal at 30lbs. And we'll work from there.

6) What is your favorite healthy food?: Oooh hmmm cucumbers, or carrots.

7) Why did you join this community?: it seemed like a place where everyone would be nice and supportive and motivating.

8) Are you trying any diets? If so, which one(s)?: I've tried a lot of diets, but this time I'm just going the smarter portions and balanced meals route.

9) If you could describe yourself in 1 word, what would that word be?: I honestly don't know. There are so many words that come to mind that don't in themselves describe me in total. So I suppose if I HAVE to choose one word, I choose my name, Bess. Because that is only that I have found that truly describes me. I'm just Bess.

10) Finally, what is your favorite color and flower?: Deep DARk red, and thistles!
