Hi, my name is Leauriy, and I need to have a place where I'm held accountable for what I'm up to which is to let go of this excess weight and be heallthy.
I've been at "Losing" weight for about half of my life and I seem to keep finding it and putting it back on. But, I am FINALLY in the right place to actually be ready to let go of all of this excess and be DONE with it!
I realize that i don't need the extra poundage anymore. No need to hide beneath it. I've always wanted to be invisible and not be noticed. But, gaining all of this weight only gave Me the illusion of this. I always seem to have stuck out like a large sore thumb. { What ever was i Thinking?? }
Anyways, here i am on this journey once again, only this is the Last time and I Am Relieved!! I'm actually, enjoying the process. But i'm not so niave to think that this time will be different and i won't have any trouble along the way. That's why I'm enlisting the help of others and giving as well. This isn't something that i should be doing alone,...no one should. Just as it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a community to empower a person to reach her full potential.
So Thank YOU ( in advance ), for stopping by and giving your support, advice, and love. It means a lot, and helps even more. Thanks

    Aries is a hard sign for a woman to be since she wants to lead and in our culture, some don't take well to that idea. Thus she can be labelled "bossy". (Think Lucy in Peanuts.) The Aries woman wanted to be like her father, so she loves the outdoors. She has to be careful of head injuries and accidents as she will rush in without thinking and she loves to take chances. She hates to be bored. She gets along well with Sagittarius, Libra, Gemini, Leo, and Aquarius.
    In Aries, the Sun is highly action oriented. You like to do your thing, and you are opinionated and direct in doing it. Your Aries personality constantly wants to charge ahead, and insists on being the one who organizes, rather than ever allowing yourself to be led or organized by others. You have a hard time recognizing any point of view except your own. Highly action oriented, when an idea strikes you, you are off quickly to carry it out. Yet you are not so good in seeing projects through to a conclusion. Follow-up and finish work are not matters that suit your style. You constantly need new goals, new projects, and new challenges.
    You are a quick learner and a self-starter; enthusiastic and curious. The main challenge for an Aries Sun sign native is the control of impulses. You must avoid scattering forces, for if you can learn to think before taking action, your energetic nature will enable you to do much. Natural impulsiveness and inability to listen to the advice of others sometimes involves you in difficulties. To succeed, you must learn to think everything through carefully before you proceed. Patience and the ability to plan are areas in which you may have to apply extra effort. You must reflect on the total effect of your actions to grow and progress in life.
    You may have a sharp temper and a quick fuse as Aries is ruled by Mars, the planet associated with war and combat. Fortunately, you get over anger as quickly as it comes, and you never hold a grudge. You are neither devious nor subtle in your actions. Many Aries Sun natives are down right blunt. Only with concentration and attention can you ever acquire much diplomacy and tact.
    With your natural Aries inclinations, you have a true adventurer's or pioneer's spirit; a longing for independence and a tendency to fancy yourself as a free soul. Born to lead, but not born to handle the mundane responsibility or bureaucratic red tape. When faced with complex details, you become very frustrated. Fully matured, your Aries spirit aspires to a gallant "never say die" attitude, and a willingness to take advantage of each new opportunity that comes along.
