Hello, I am here for support of my weight loss and healthy living goals. I have always been a "big girl" and I have always accepted this about myself. I am okay with being a "big girl" in some sense. I don't mean fat girl but big girl. I am 5'10" big by most standards, I have a size 11 foot...once again big by most standards, my ring size is 9 on a good day...big. I think that I make my point and those are things that I cannot change nor do I desire to change.
BUT THERE ARE SOME THINGS THAT I CAN CHANGE....AND CHANGE STARTS WITH ME.
I can get healthier. I can come down to a managable weight that does not negatively affect my blood pressure and blood sugar. I have been stalling for quite sometime and need to get restarted. Everytime I want to kick myself I remember that everyday is one more chance to get it right! Thank you fellow SparkPeople
A Dieter's Prayer:
I Praise You for My Body
As You know, some days I wish
I looked different than I do.
How good it is to be reminded, Lord,
that You had me--exactly this me--
in mind long before I came to exist!
So today I present myself to You
with a grateful heart.
Help me to be a good steward of my body.
Because You designed it,
I want to celebrate, nurture, and respect it.
By Your power at work in me,
I praise You for every molecule, gene, and freckle!

I have been working out regularly. I do strength training 3x's a week and cardio 3-4 times per week. I love doing Les Mills Bodypump and RPM. I also use the circut at least once a week as well as kickboxing and latin fusion on occassion. I also switch out on the classes and use machines some weeks as I have found that this usually jump starts my body in a new way.
I currently am in Columbus, Ohio
"Not everyone is healthy enough to have a front row seat in your life"
Relish your uniqueness by being the best you that yoiu can be...remember there are others but there is only one you.
Continue to shine as you never know who will relish in the warmth of your glow.

Just wanted to say hello! I KNOW if I become more active on this site, I focus more on healthy things, so I thought I'd reach out and meet new people! (p.s. Right up there with you at 6 ft tall!)

Thanks for the encouragement! Believe me, I know where you're coming from...a year and a half ago I was right where you stand. Only I'm not even 1/4 as gorgeous as you. You have the prettiest smile! I'll always be a "big girl", too, no matter how much weight I lose...I'm not quite as tall as you, but I still wear a size 9.5W - 10W shoe and I'm just down to a size 9 ring, from 11.5. Stick with it, you'll get where you want to go. Best!

Happy Belated Birthday, DONE GIRL
The Aries woman wanted to be like her Dad and she grew up knowing she could do anything as well as the boys even if they didn't give her credit for it. The Aries woman can have a difficult time because of this reason as others think she is "to pushy" and men may not like her "take charge and get things done" attitude. She gets along well with Libra, Aquarius, Gemini, Leo and Sagittarius. She should avoid Scorpio as in any relationship Scorpio MUST be in control so Aries won't like that.
Aries does well in the military, law enforcement, business, and psychology. She has to be concerned about head injuries. She is a natural born athlete, so being obese really isn't for the energetic Aries as it slows her down.
Aries signifies new beginnings, quick changes and turning points, as well as raw energy and human force. That force is fired up by the planet Mars, indicating a sense of impulsiveness and aggression.
Aries also represents leadership, action and focusing on the outward and onward. It has a pioneering, adventurous spirit and denotes independence, self confidence and an ability to take risks.
Possessing energy and fire, this Zodiac Sign has the courage to pursue goals impressively; always enthusiastic, energetic and ever ready to try new and extraordinary things. This Sign's energy is also competitive and decisive whenever facing challenges.
In relationships, Aries' admiring characteristics are integrity, faithfulness and love.
Every Sign has positive and negative energies. The following words describe the darker side of this Zodiac Sign: impatience, insecurity, a lack of follow through, hasty decisions, argumentative, destructive, violent and even cruel.
