Taken from above so you can't see the buffet pants I am wearing. lol
I'm so excited to be here. I've had a very sucessful weight loss journey about 5 years ago now and always gave up when I got to that last 15-20 lbs...NO MORE! Time to tackle it along with the extra 10lbs I've put on in the last 5 years. I'm here, I'm pumped and ready to do this! I've never worn a bikini in my life, at 32, it's about time. 2012 is going to be the year to get into healthy habits and I am actually STOKED about it :)
It starts with a dream.
Add faith, and it becomes a belief.
Add action, and it becomes a part of life.
Add perseverance, and it becomes a goal in sight.
Add patience and time, and it ends with a dream come true.
I quit smoking on New Years after 14 years on and off. I am DONE :) I'm am trying to make 2012 the year I put myself (mind, body and spirit)first. I would love to get in shape, be healthy and by the end of it...pull off a bikini! :)
I've lost weight before (70lbs so far) just by tracking food while eating properly, and this I am doing again. However, I never really got into exercising and that's what I am hoping to change this year a little at a time. I really want to challenge myself to be the best I can and burn those fat pants I have!

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.
The Scorpio woman is often the "breadwinner" in the family, or she supports others such as a parent or "down on his luck" relative.
No matter how successful Scorpio is in life, she always feels her life is a struggle. It is never easy for her from her point of view. She feels the world is against her in some way. Again, this goes back to her childhood.
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.
