I'm a Second Year Elementary Teacher working in Goldsboro and currently working on my Masters Degree and will be going for my Doctrate. Although, I don't look attractive now, I took a big step towards improving my health by having the lapband surgery in June. I'm down from 320 to 243 and dropping and hoping to get down to 180, 170. By no means am I the prettiest girl in the book and I don't want to be, I'm as real as they come and I'm learning to love myself and trust again. My hobbies are walking the mall, costuming and reading novels. I also enjoy camping and rides in the countryside. I'm an outdorsy kinda girl and not afraid of getting my hands dirty. My ideal match is someone who shares my Christian values and has a positive outlook on life. If he's willing to show me what it means to truly live then I would love to meet him someday.
