I'm 29 years old...
Got my BA in Liberal Studies in 2009 and as of May 2012, I have my preliminary Multiple Subject teaching credential with supplementary authorizations in English and Social Studies. I've been substituting ever since... one day i will get my own classroom!
I've always been overweight or at least as long as I can remember. I think it was around the start of puberty and looking back its sad to think that I was probably ashamed of it since I hid in big t-shirts and bike shorts. I take credit for being unhealthy later in life, but my parents didn't exactly give me a good foundation...

After many failed attempts or rather quiting before I got to my ultimate goal, this time is different. I'm tired of feeling like my weight makes me unattractive and for so long people told me if only you lost 20lbs, then you'd be gorgeous. So now i finally want to lose the last bit of weight! It will be a tough journey, but I hope by the time I reach my goal that I will new person inside and out!

My highest weight was in the 170s and would have kept going if I didn't move away to finish school...I had control over what food was available to me and so I got down to the high 150s in a semester! Since then I've had a few lame attempts at losing the rest, but now I want to stick with it. There's no big event as to why I finally am doing it...I think that since I have nothing else going on taking all my time, why not finally lose the rest of my weight!
I started the year weighing 146.2 , but started the shred weighing 144.2. I'm not entirely sure what my goal weight is, but I think its somewhere between 125 and 130. Oh and I'm 5ft 4ish...
I'm not counting calories, but watching what I eat and trying to make the best choices for myself.
I started with Jillian Michael's 30 day shred(4/19/2010) and have now moved on to her 30 day slimdown.

I've found a passion for running...thanks mostly to the Couch to 5k program, which I've repeated a few times in the past. I started it again in May 2012, graduated and am now working through the Bridge to 10k program. My ultimate goal is to run a marathon before i turn 30... with a couple shorter distance races before that. its such a weird concept that I now enjoy running because mile days in PE were such a miserable experience for me! Every PE coach basically just told me to run and I tried so hard, but could almost never make the required time.

    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.
