My name is Malissa, and I live in the Dayton, Ohio area. I have been married for 7 years and have two daughters - Avery, almost 6, and Alicia, 18 months.

I used to be a very active person. When I was growing up, I went fishing and camping nearly every weekend with my Dad. I was on the swim team for several years. I rode my bike everywhere, all over the Air Force base we were on at the time. Yet I was still chubby. I slendered down in Jr. High and went back up some in early High School, then slendered back down somewhat the summer before my senior year of High School. (Yikes!, 17 years ago!) After my Dad passed away, the pounds started creeping on. I had always been an emotional eater, but it got worse and I stopped being as active. I've gained and lost over the last several years, but always gained more than I lost. This time I am ready to do it for good!!! I am the heaviest I have ever been, and I don't want to stay here or get here again. My blood pressure is through the roof, my knees hurt, my back hurts, I always feel drained and like I don't have any energy. I am ready to change!

    Happy Birthday to You!!

    Born today, October 17, you are actually an individual of quite simple tastes, but this often conflicts with your vaunting ambition -- which is the kind to lead you to tremendous success if you work hard and dedicate yourself to even greater achievement. Taste and ambition can be combined, of course, if your are careful to understand yourself fully, and because of this you are likely to avoid the dangers with which other successful people are presented; you are not likely to change when you begin to enjoy the fruits of your labors -- and others will surely admire you for remaining true to yourself.

    You are caring and generous, and one of the reasons why you are able to maintain the simple life is that you are often far more concerned with the well-being of others than you are of your own -- and you will go out of your way to offer assistance whenever possible.

    Today’s Libra Horoscope: You must take care that you do not endanger yourself while striving to keep others safe. The same precautions work for you, too!

    You share a birthday with: Eminem, rapper; Alan Jackson, country singer; Howard Rollins, actor; Margot Kidder, actress; George Wendt, actor; Evel Knievel, motorcycle daredevil; Jimmy Breslin, writer and columnist; Tom Poston, actor; Montgomery Clift, actor; Rita Hayworth, actress; Arthur Miller, playwright; Jean Arthur, actress.

    Hope your day is wonderful!
