The Reconstruction of Me

I'm Monique and I have 60 lbs to lose. I've recently discovered that it looks like I may have osteoarthritis instead of lupus, so it is extremely important that I take my medication and get this excess weight off of my poor bones. I struggle with poor self esteem and I realize that my weight won't come off until I begin to love myself totally without question.

Weight wasn't an issue in my early 20's. I remember weighing 120-125lbs, but then after 8 pregnancies, 7 live births ...
I'm Monique and I have 60 lbs to lose. I've recently discovered that it looks like I may have osteoarthritis instead of lupus, so it is extremely important that I take my medication and get this excess weight off of my poor bones. I struggle with poor self esteem and I realize that my weight won't come off until I begin to love myself totally without question.

Weight wasn't an issue in my early 20's. I remember weighing 120-125lbs, but then after 8 pregnancies, 7 live births and 1 miscarriage, along with dealing with emotional, negative self-worth issues I now weigh 207 lbs. I am sooo unhappy and at times miserable that it's depressing. I can no longer let this go on.

Losing weight and loving myself go hand-in-hand. Until I deal with my mind battles, I will never truly lose weight. It will always be a yo-yo game and for my sake and the sake of my family that can not be the case anymore. Although it will be a long process, with setbacks and victories, I must move forward because I'm worth more than I think I do. God created me and He doesn't make junk so I am awesome. I just have to start believing it.

The Sagittarius girl was a "tomboy" at heart, wanting to be outside near her Dad. She is a hard worker but really much to smart to be a Stay-at-home-mom as she wants to be out in the world. She finds housework boring and she needs more to keep her happy. Higher education is important for her. She gets along well with Leo, Libra, Gemini, Aquarius, and Aries.
In Sagittarius the Sun is idealistic and optimistic. Sagittarius is the sign that espouses such high principles as universal love and world peace. As this period of the year is associated with the spirit of giving and good cheer, the Sagittarius personality is recognized for its generosity and expansive demeanor.
You are very gregarious, enthusiastic, and open, in all that you do. You have an ability to understand a broad perspective, and to see everything from a total point of view. Your foresight and an ability to visualize the big picture make matters work out well for you most of the time. Always thinking in broad abstract terms, you usually have trouble focusing on details that arise.
In many ways you are spontaneous, but with this comes an inclination to be bluntly honest and frank, or at least, straightforward and much to the point. You never intend to hurt anyone, but the truth is all important to you, and you never hesitate to tell it like it is. Tact and restraint can be issues of concern, but you probably don't care. You are so independent. You can rarely be pushed an inch in any direction unless you decide the direction your being pushed is where you want to go.
These blows are softened only by your warm, jovial and outgoing friendliness. Even when you stick your hoof in your mouth you can recover and show up as a winner. Often "lady luck" just smiles on you. Sagittarius has a happy-go-lucky, honest, cheerful, and ever optimistic approach to life; but then can turn right around and be so careless, restless and extravagant.
You have a natural love of the outdoors and may develop strong enthusiasm for sports and outdoor adventure. Sagittarius is the sign most often associated with sports, and you are inclined to physical activity and active endeavors, particularly outdoors.
Future-oriented, you rarely allow problems or setbacks to get you down for long. You put disappointment behind you and start working toward your next adventure. Never satisfied with moving along in slow lane, you want to set the pace on a grand scale. Whatever you set out to do, must be the biggest and best. You want to live life to its fullest. You can work well with anybody, accepting them for what they are. You are the natural, open-hearted extrovert, an easy person live and work with. Relying on your glibness and complete self-confidence, you are a natural in the world of selling. Still in the area of organization and perseverance you may need help from other factors in the chart. If you are like most Sagittarius natives, you can be down right irresponsible and unreliable at times. Your personality is such, however, that people don't get upset about it. It's that natural Sagittarius charm that carries you through the tough spots.

Sagittarius is the sign of higher education. You live to expand your horizons in every possible way, wanting to see the world and experience it. You want to meet interesting people and try everything. Your curiosity is boundless and your desire for knowledge is paramount.
