Occupation: Crazy teenager- until next year, when its college time and I will be working multiple jobs!

Height: 5'8
Eye/Hair Color: Green eyes, my hair is natural brown atm (I had to have it shaved a year ago because of a bad bleach job- am a bit color-phobic now.)
Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: 3 years ago? Maybe 4...
Starting Weight/Present/Goal Weight: 180/145/120
Problem: Compulsive overeating, Binge eating
Plan/Way of Eating: Calorie counting
Favorite exercise: Pilates
Favorite movies: I love Indiana Jones- he's my hero....
Favorite books: I will read just about anything, and then forget it later ( thats why I have a 4.0- I retain everything just long enough to get tested, then its gone). I am on a Lisa Scottoline kick right now though.
Music: I love music. Marilyn Manson, MCR, Britney Spears, Gwen Stefani, Dead Celebrity Status, Hollywood Undead, Bullet for my Valentine, Slipknot, Disturbed, Schoolyard Heroes, Mindless Self Indulgence, Shakira, Rhianna, and even more..
Favorite Quote(s): There is no passion to be found in playing small, in settling for a life that is less than what you are capable of living- Nelson Mandela
Favorite People (dead and living): I love my mum, we are so close, Tim Burton, I have a total crush on Hugh Laurie's character in House- If I were to marry, it would be someone like that, someone I could fight with and yet still respect, because I am a fighter and hate people who let me walk over them. I have a bit of a dominating personality. Plus, Hugh Laurie is incredibly sexy.
People I canít stand: People who won't tell you straight. I mean, if I ask if my hair is okay, TELL ME if it looks bad, don't let me go out looking like dog doo.
Places youíve been: Nowhere- My parents are petrified of planes, and are afraid to let me out of their site, so just Oregon, Washington, California, and Iowa.
Places you want to visit: Everywhere. I want to see the world before I am too old to appreciate it.
Pivotís questions (donít think too long, answer as fast as you can)

08. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? I want to be a special agent for the FBI
09. What profession would you not like to do? Anything that is strictly deskwork- I was a secretary for a year, and never saw the light. I don't mind doing paperwork, but I like to know that there is a chance for fieldwork in my future.
10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? I combined this with "EXTRAS" because its looooong.

I know this sounds weird, but I kind of doubt there is a heaven. My parents are crazy religious, and I go to church every Sunday ( they would throw me out if I didn't) but once I leave in a year, I will no longer go. My parents are just too psycho about it. I am homeschooled because the public school might "corrupt" me. And that hurts, because I was public schooled until 8th grade, and my siblings never went. So it feels like they hate the music I listen to and don't allow me to play it in the house or with my sibs, and they don't allow me to share my views on ANYTHING with ANYONE, like I am the messed up kid, the problem child.

Even thought I have a 4.0 gpa, take AP courses, don't drink/party/drugs, want a career in law enforcement, its still not enough for them to be proud.

And just so I don't sound self pitying ( Because really, I don't care what they think) I wanted to add that they have given me a very thick skin, and I am very, very firm about my own beliefs. They did give me that.
