I have been a member of sparkpeople for a while. My last weight gain was due to having a baby girl. She was born in March. I've been working diligently on staying healthy and losing this baby weight for the past month. I'm making good progress!

I have still been dealing with my Crohn's disease. I just started taking prednisone. The most common side effect of that medication is weight gain. I'm not going to allow that to happen to myself! I'm taking control, by eating within my calorie range and going to exercise at least three times a week. The exercise part is a start!

It's been a while since I have been on here regularly. I need to get back in the pattern of taking care of my health. I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease in April, but have not lost much weight on account of it. Probably ten pounds I've lost since May, but I am back down to 160 lbs. I am about 15 lbs up from my lowest weight from a couple years ago. My goal right now is to get into the pattern of exercise and eating healthy. I made one healthy choice to reduce my stress and reduced my hours at my second job from 30 hours a week to about 5 to 10.

I lost 40 lbs from February 2009 to August 2009. I slacked off a bit on exercising and eating healthy, but only managed to gain 5 lbs from August to January. I then started workout out regularly on 1/13/10. I have been making wiser food choices also. I canceled my gym membership yesterday, and I am now working out at home on my elliptical and using workout DVD's.I feel like I get a way better workout at home.

My name is Heather, and I'm 24 years old. I am married, own an adult foster care home company, and am a registered nurse.

I've been on Sparkpeople now since 2007, but this year, I have really been committed to it. Before, I would stick with it for a few weeks or a month, but I've been consistent since right around Feb 2009. These new lifestyle changes are now here to stay. I feel soooo much better and have lost weight. My biggest support so far has been from the spark team "Done Being the Fat Girl", the best team ever!!!!!!

My Goals:
My goal is to avoid gaining weight! I hope to lose some weight too, to get down to 135 lbs, but I know it may take longer than usual due to prednisone (medication).

My Program:
Eating 1200-1500 calories per day, and exercising at least 3 days per week. Keeping it simple in my not so simple schedule.

In Pisces, the Sun is sensitive and idealistic. You are "tuned in" to your environment, and aware of everything happening in your world, and to everyone around you. Pisces is the dream sign of the zodiac. You may be one of the true dreamers of the world, often getting caught up in impractical plans and ideas. You absorb the ideas and the mental outlook of those around you, for better or for worse. The decisions that you make may be workable, if sometimes emotional and erratic. Often these decisions are made on hunches and feelings with little or no foundation in fact. Creative, spiritual and often a bit mystical, you can be impractical and illogical.
The Pisces child often is the Scapegoat in the family, being blamed for the families problems, but that isn't true at all. Little Pisces hears these conversations and feels she is the fault and takes on the feelings of those around her. Pisces never has an easier life. She needs to surround herself with positive, upbeat people because if she is around depressed people they will pull her down. She is a natural healer. She can have problems with her feet. She can be a fat person if she turns to food for comfort from her emotional issues, but yet, dance, yoga and swimming can be ways she stays slim and healthy.
You're a moody and introspective person, and it's hard for others to understand you. It may be hard for you to understand yourself sometimes. Your temperament varies from being optimistic to being acutely pessimistic.
Although you may be very shy and unassuming, you care deeply about your stature and succeeding in your endeavors. You may feel vulnerable and anxious when you are unsure of your status and circumstances. You have a deeply hidden inner pride and when this is attacked in any way, you react emotionally.
Compassionate, tolerant, kind, and loving, you are easily influenced by others because you don't want to hurt anyone. Always charming and likable, you are good to those in distress. You are as fond of animals as you are people. You are sympathetic to the world's unfortunate, including every stray animal and helpless soul you meet. You are more concerned with others' well-being than your own, and you want to save people from themselves. You are easily taken in by a hard-luck story and often leave yourself open to be used. You are always there with a shoulder to cry on for your friends in need. Frequently people take advantage of this compassionate nature.
If you are a typical Pisces, you're likely to suffer from an inferiority complex. You probably lack an adequate sense of self-confidence, as you are so very sensitive, shy and introspective. You never feel that you do enough, so you often overwork, putting stress on your physical body. In your quiet way, you accomplish much. Having a natural tendency to become a workaholic, you must have a generous amount of escape time, preferably with total solitude.
Pisces, more than any other sign, draws strength or weakness from the rest of the horoscope. The nature of Pisces is very adaptable and pliable. You may have to fight for a sense of stability and to resist the impulses of the moment.
