I'm Amy, and I am in it to win it. I've got a long way to go, but I've got lot's of hope and motivation. I'm on a quest to regain my life. I would love to lose this extra weight I have burdened myself with, but I ultimately want a healthier lifestyle for me,and my family. I have a long life I want to live, and I don't want to cut it short with heart disease,or any other thing that I could have help prevent. I'm too young to be old. I have to do this for me and my kids. Lead by example!!I don't ever want my girls to find themselves in the position to have to lose 100lbs ever intheir lives. So let's get to work...
1. To be a good example to my girls.
2. Lose a solid 100 lbs. and live a permanant healthy and POSITIVE lifestyle.
3. Stop being addicted to garbage food.
4. Be a DOer, and live life. Stop being sedentary!!
5. Be the captin of my own ship and control my "Blue moments" with exercise and whole foods.
6. Be able to go to the store an WANT to buy clothes, and have many choices of cute and fun things to chose from.
7. Stop seeing myself as a FAT and unhealthy person.
8. Exercise to keep me fit and sane.
9. look good naked...
So far my program consists of...Counting Calories. (every calorie!) Eating whole, and healthy non processed foods. Exercise!! Cardio, cardio, cardio, at LEAST an hour 6 days a week. Lately it's been everyday. Drink lots of water everyday, vitamins and SPARKPEOPLE! I guess I'm going the old fashioned way..no bells and whistles. Just healthy food, and exercise, and some good support from people like you!

Happy BELATED Birthday, DONE GIRL
The Scorpio child is born to a father who didn't want a child for whatever reason, which may never have been discussed in the home, but the sensitive little Scorpio picks up on this and learns not to trust others. She asks "What do they want from me and what is in this for me?" Scorpio is a good sign for a woman to be since it is "fixed" water, making her very emotional, but in our culture a woman is allowed to be emotional. She can be very jealous, even of siblings when she feels she has been slighted. Scorpio being a "fixed" sign can stay with and finish what she starts but she also has a very difficult time trying to change. She can certainly have a weight problem as her emotions get the best of her. But, she can exercise and stay with a routine, so her weight issue is ALL up to her and no one else. What she is is all of her own making. She lives a life of extremes and is never center-field on any issue. She makes up her mind quickly and stays with her decision or feelings on an issue.
She gets along with Virgo, Taurus, Pisces, Capricorn and Cancer. She should avoid Sagittarius as he will be to blunt for her although she can be very sarcastic when she wants to be. It is her way of protecting herself and getting out her "sting."
She makes a good detective or policewoman.
Scorpio must be in control of any relationship she is in, as this goes back to her feeling unsure as a child.
Like the other water signs, this sign is very sensitive and emotional. With Scorpio, unlike the water signs Cancer and Pisces, the emotions remain under rigid control. They may not even be apparent to those who are very close to you. When your emotions do erupt, they do so very violently, often with a strong burst of sarcasm and vindictiveness.
The strength of Scorpio is in the methods employed to meet every challenge. You approach everything with intensity and passion. Nothing is ever halfway because you put everything you have in your work; mind, heart, soul. You are one of those people who always gives 100% and sometimes more. Many born under the sign Scorpio become classic workaholics.
You may have an undesirable trait commonly found in the Scorpio person, holding a grudge for a very long time. The underside of Scorpio is often possessed with uncontrollable jealousies and the strongest passions. When offended the reaction is surely revenge. The higher side of Scorpio still dominates people and situations, but with much for the common good. This sign produces very few lukewarm people. You are either very bad or very good.
In Scorpio, the Sun is intense, skeptical and secretive. There is an intensity and a secretiveness in your makeup which results in an inscrutable persona most people cannot penetrate. This trait makes the Scorpio personality hard to detect. You like to remain incognito, and do so with your very secretive nature. You are a master at hiding your emotions. You neither flinch nor blush. It's hard for you to share your inner feelings with anyone.
You can be very critical and demanding, creating a forceful and dominating demeanor. You are strong-willed and determined, and you usually act with incisiveness. Your critical nature allows you to make shrewd and unusually accurate judgments at a rapid rate. You can penetrate the hidden agenda of those you meet. It is in your nature to protect yourself by knowing what your opponents are thinking and doing. You have uncanny intuition and accurate perceptions, making you almost psychic in understanding and making emotional connections with other people. Very few successfully earn your trust. Often, you experience difficulties with the authority figures in your life.
At home, you may be something of a tyrant, wanting everything done your way. You think you are always right and won't tolerate dissent. There is a tendency for you to impose your will on friends and family since you feel so passionately that your ideas are in their best interest. No one takes relationships more serious than you. Although you are highly attracted to, and attractive to, the opposite sex, in many respects you function well as a 'lone wolf' type.
