Shared Fitness Tracker
OK,here goes... I started out on Spark People to help me get the weight off before my wedding.....fast forward 6 months and the newlywed weight has put me right back to where I started.
So now I am even more determined to get the weight off than before. I am tired of hating every picture taken off me...including my wedding pictures. I am sick of my clothes not fitting. I am over being the "fat" friend. (Especially, when said "skinny" friends were up until recently "fat" themselves).I am tired of crying everytime I try on clothes or put on a bathing suit because I hate my body so much.
I'm married to a Corporal in the Marine Corps. I own my own pet sitting business,Happy Paws Pet Sitting, and am going to school to become a certified Pet Groomer. I also am an Independent Consultant for Celebrating Home. I have 3 wonderful,terrible dogs: Darby(3 yr old Redbone Coonhound), Brennan(8 yr old Chesapeake Bay Retriever/Beagle mix) and BabyGirl( 5 yr old(approx) walker hound). They are like my children. They are a blessing to me, except when they discover how to open drawers, eat puzzle pieces and generally turn my hair grey prematurely,lol. They have been the ones to get me as active as I am right now...what started out as just quick trips outside have gradually turned into 2-3.5 mile walks.
I am working on bettering myself and turning my life around. I am working hard to be the person, both personally and professionally, I want to be.I have finally realized that to do this, it truly has to be for me and for me alone.I am more active than I have ever been, so I know that a new me isn't far behind. I have had my ups and downs, and while weight may win the battle....I WILL WIN THE WAR.
I'm just trying to get back down to the weight I was 3 years ago. I am shooting for 125lbs, but I would be okay with anything in the 130's too.
7 days a week- 2-3.5 mile walks with my 2 70lb dogs and one 40lb dog.

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.
