Creating a New and Healthier Me!

My name is Allison. I have always been heavier than others, but enough is enough!!! I am tired of this. I am DONE being the fat girl. I am done with people staring at me. I am DONE feeling embarassed of myself. I am DONE missing out on life because I don't won't to be embarassed.

I remember once when I went to Cancun. While there I went on a Jungle Safari ride (on jet skis) into the middle of the ocean to the coral reefs. When we got there we did some snorkeling and saw some of the world under the water. Everything was great, until it was time to get back on the jet skis to head back. I could not pull myself on the jet ski. I was mortified. So, they told me to climb in the boat and ride back. I couldn't get into the boat by myself. Therefore, someone had to help me. Well, not one man, or two, but three men had to pull me up onto the boat. Again, I was MORTIFIED!!! Ever since then, I have let my weight get in the way, because I will not be in a situation like that again! No more. I do not want to be like that, but I also don't want to miss out on things because of my fear.

Another thing, I want to be fit and fabulous by forty. Sooo, what better time to start than now???

The symbol of Capricorn is the Goat. Capricorn is associated with the harshness of winter and its stark realities.
Capricorn can have health issues with the knees and also headaches, often because of to much stress. The Capricorn child is "old when young" and given a great deal of responsibility, so she/he gets little time to be "just a child." Capricorn learns to be frugal with money, especially after marriage.
Capricorn is not a fat sign, because she cares so much about how she appears to others and wants to set an example for others to follow, but if she is emotionally unhappy, she can turn to food for comfort and have a weight issue. She does have all the willpower you could want when it comes to turning herself into the person she wants to be, and she will "cheat" on her diet by eating to little rather than to much.
In Capricorn, the Sun is strongly goal-directed and persistent. Ambitious, serious and dedicated to duty, life is difficult, but you are the type of person who will triumph and achieve success. Your aptitude to persevere, no matter how difficult the road, sets you apart from most of your peers. You are anxious to climb the ladder of fortune, and you can usually reach your goals because of your sense of the right way of doing everything. Your patience is never ending.
You are a very thoughtful and serious person, thinking everything through carefully before you set off in any direction. You possess excellent reasoning skills, and you can be counted on to select options that are both practical and that provide an economic advantage. Your attitude is conservative; conservative with time, money, and all other resources. Your philosophy is waste not, want not. You are also likely to be conservative in your political and social attitudes, although your age, upbringing, and education perspectives may influence this somewhat.
You are especially well suited to business and government because of your sense of organization and structure. You combine a talent for management with an ability to carry out instructions with care. You are the quintessential careerist, taking job and duties very seriously. Therefore, you are never one to shirk responsibility and you have very little use for those that do. That which matters most to you is your public image. You show your best face to the public. You enjoy being in a position of power and authority, although you are not very much inclined to enjoy the limelight. You may prefer instead to run your business from an isolated perspective. You are loyal and dedicated, and you demand utter loyalty and dedication from subordinates. Advancing up the ladder of success is all important. You are unconcerned about, sometimes even ruthless toward, those getting in your path as you move upward.
You don't handle chaotic situations very well. You may need to develop the ability to lighten up a little and not take life, and everything else so seriously. Although you are self-disciplined, responsible, and practical, at times you can wallow in self-pity. It's essential for you to remember that your most important asset is self-esteem, and you should never devalue this. Rigidity and fear of change may be your biggest stumbling block.
Sober and reserved in your dealings with others, it takes you a good while to warm up enough to anyone to be considered a close friend. Yet once you do, you are a very caring, reliable, and most steadfast ally. Your private side is different from your public side. In private you are shy and sensitive. The harshness of your public image disappears. Emotionally demanding relationships are very difficult. Love relationships may be more like business relationships, and you are unsure of yourself in most intimate situations.
