Helpful advice to others: Never be intimidated by anyone, be comfortable and confident with who you are. I remember a quote Dr Phil made on his show (Daytime TV during late pregnancy...lol) 'Not one bit of my self worth is tied up in your acceptance of me' I thought this was a fabulous attitude to have. I used it on one of my workplace bullies and she has been fine with me ever since.

S/O Age: 23

Marital Status: Married

Children?: Not yet

Currently TTC?: well, we know how to prevent a baby and we're not doing that, so I guess so.

Dieting or working out?: I'm a camp person, moreover an administrative camp person. This means from April to the end of August I am usually too busy to sit and eat for very long (aka dieting) and I'm busy lifeguarding/swimming/hiking/horseback riding/canoeing/kayaking/ropes course-ing (Is that a word??)/and archery-ing (so I guess exercising). Other than that? I try to watch what I eat and I like to be active, but nothing strict or strenous. I figure as long as I'm still able to do camp, we don't have much of a problem!

Helpful advice to others: Keep on keeping on. Don't let what others may or may not think about you/of you slow you down. At the end of the day, their opinions don't matter and what does is whether or not you're happy with yourself and what you're doing with your life. Oh and don't worry if you look like an idiot sometimes--most of those times, the people that you think are judging you are actually wishing they could do it too!
