Fitting Into Skinny Jeans!

Forget January 1st, and New Year's Resolutions and "starting fresh" once numbers on a calendar change. Forget making promises simply because it's believed a smaller pair of jeans will fix everything. Forget looking in the mirror and picking out flaws. Forget calorie restriction, and "diets" and skipping meals. Forget crying over a few extra calories or an extra rest day. Forget the past. Forget feeling guilty over one (or two or three...) slices of pizza. Forget "later." Forget having it come ...
Forget January 1st, and New Year's Resolutions and "starting fresh" once numbers on a calendar change. Forget making promises simply because it's believed a smaller pair of jeans will fix everything. Forget looking in the mirror and picking out flaws. Forget calorie restriction, and "diets" and skipping meals. Forget crying over a few extra calories or an extra rest day. Forget the past. Forget feeling guilty over one (or two or three...) slices of pizza. Forget "later." Forget having it come easy. Forget the scale. Forget the negative and accept. Accept a challenge. Accept a reform. Accept setbacks, and bad days. Accept bouncing back. Accept water over iced tea. Accept your own special brand of beauty. Accept greens next to the meat. Accept risks. Accept measuring tapes and progress pictures. Accept a 30 minute walk (because you'll never know where it'll lead). Accept "now." Accept a new lifestyle. Accept looking for a solution. Accept healthy fats. Accept slow change. Accept problems. Accept hard work and dedication. Accept the present (and you'll find a way to make your future). Accept an adventure. Then grab your shoes, and roll with it.

Here's to a new me. Are you in?

The little Pisces girl is born to a mother who is a worrier and the little Pisces child picks up all the tension that is in the family and she believes she is to blame. Often the family uses her as a "scapegoat" for its problems saying in effect "If it wasn't for her we'd have life on Easy Street", but she isn't the real problem at all. Pisces escapes to her dream world and finds safety in pets or food. Yes, she can have a weight issue, but she can just as well be a dancer, runner or lead an exercise class. She can be a wonderful artist or a teacher of small children as she knows how to communicate with them.
She gets along best with Scorpio, Cancer, Taurus, Capricorn or Virgo. She can be a great beauty like Elizabeth Taylor. When asked what was different about her from Marilyn Monroe, she answered "No one ran my life but ME." That is what a highly developed Pisces woman needs to learn to say.
Pisces health issues are often with her feet. She can have boils, anemia, skin conditions, allergic reactions to drugs, lymphatic system, problems with the mucous membranes or her liver. Practicing Yoga can be a great help to her.

In Pisces, the Sun is sensitive and idealistic. You are "tuned in" to your environment, and aware of everything happening in your world, and to everyone around you. Pisces is the dream sign of the zodiac. You may be one of the true dreamers of the world, often getting caught up in impractical plans and ideas. You absorb the ideas and the mental outlook of those around you, for better or for worse. The decisions that you make may be workable, if sometimes emotional and erratic. Often these decisions are made on hunches and feelings with little or no foundation in fact. Creative, spiritual and often a bit mystical, you can be impractical and illogical.
You're a moody and introspective person, and it's hard for others to understand you. It may be hard for you to understand yourself sometimes. Your temperament varies from being optimistic to being acutely pessimistic.
Although you may be very shy and unassuming, you care deeply about your stature and succeeding in your endeavors. You may feel vulnerable and anxious when you are unsure of your status and circumstances. You have a deeply hidden inner pride and when this is attacked in any way, you react emotionally.
Compassionate, tolerant, kind, and loving, you are easily influenced by others because you don't want to hurt anyone. Always charming and likable, you are good to those in distress. You are as fond of animals as you are people. You are sympathetic to the world's unfortunate, including every stray animal and helpless soul you meet. You are more concerned with others' well-being than your own, and you want to save people from themselves. You are easily taken in by a hard-luck story and often leave yourself open to be used. You are always there with a shoulder to cry on for your friends in need. Frequently people take advantage of this compassionate nature.
If you are a typical Pisces, you're likely to suffer from an inferiority complex. You probably lack an adequate sense of self-confidence, as you are so very sensitive, shy and introspective. You never feel that you do enough, so you often overwork, putting stress on your physical body. In your quiet way, you accomplish much. Having a natural tendency to become a workaholic, you must have a generous amount of escape time, preferably with total solitude.
Pisces, more than any other sign, draws strength or weakness from the rest of the horoscope. The nature of Pisces is very adaptable and pliable. You may have to fight for a sense of stability and to resist the impulses of the moment. -
