100 pounds lost and gained

10 years ago I started to lose weight. I had hit an all time high of 225 pounds and was 21 years old. I knew I was missing out on life. Guys would hit on my friends, but not me. I thought I looked like my friends, but when I got pictures developed I realized I was twice as big.

I hit rock bottom during my year abroad in Russia. My host mother told me i could chose, to eat what I wanted and look the way I did or to take control.

I counted calories, took up running ...

I hit rock bottom during my year abroad in Russia. My host mother told me i could chose, to eat what I wanted and look the way I did or to take control.

I counted calories, took up running (starting 3 minutes at a time) and eventually joined Weight Watchers. I lost 100 pounds in 2 and a half years.
I never believed that maintaining is as hard as losing. I believe it now!

So I've seen 225, 125, 145, 175 and last year and 40 weeks pregnant I saw 208. Right now I'm just under 200 and I feel every pound. I need to do this for me, for my knees, for my back, and for my family. I need to remember that nothing tastes as good as being thin feels and I want to feel that again real bad.

I wish everyone success and happiness. Don't take for granted the Spark Support!

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 Scorpio woman is most often the "breadwinner" in the family, even supporting other relatives.
The Scorpio child is born to a father who didn't want a child for whatever reason, and even though this isn't even talked about in the family, the child picks up on this and learns to not trust others. Scorpio always asks "What do they want from me" or "What is in this for me." Because of this, Scorpio is insecure and must be in control in any relationship they are in.
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.
Scorpio gets along with Cancer, Pisces, Virgo, Capricorn and Taurus. They should avoid Libra and Sagittarius, who are both outgoing people that would make Scorpio very jealous. Scorpio health issues involved problems with fertility & the reproductive organs. They can also have problems with the throat including the thyroid.
