I am sick of the way I feel in my own body.

Cloths don't fit right.

I don't look in mirrors any more unless I have to.

I don't go our unless I have to.

When I was thin I thought I could relate to "the Fat Girl", I had no idea how they really felt.

Well I am done with it!

I am 35 years old and feel like I am 85. I have severe GERD, chronic pancreatitis, sphincter of ODDI dysfunction, arthritis, scoliosis, depression, panic attacks, and Factor V Leiden. With the pancreatitis I am so very close to becomming diabetic, and obese on top of that is NOT helping. My doctor wants me on a strict diet, because I HAVE to loose weight to better my health. It seems too steep of a hill for me to climb and it scares me that I can't do it. It is just all the pain and fear of failure that holds me back. I have to, and I WILL!

I live in beautiful St. Paul, and can take advantage of all the walking/biking paths by the river. Call that a pro.

I have great friends and have their support.

There are awesome co-ops and the farmers market for tons of fresh vegetables and fruit.

I have tried before, and life events have given me good excuses to quit. I can't this time.

SO I am ready to learn and grow here, not to mention reach my goals. I am so ready for all of this to change. And with everyones support I believe I can fdo it!

    The symbol for Aries is the Ram, because of the headlong, direct, and assertive nature of the sign. The sign is also symbolized by seeds shooting out of the ground in the springtime, suggesting a time and spirit of renewal.

    The Aries girl wanted to be like her father, so she loves being outside & isn't cut out to be a stay-at-home-mom. She has to much to offer the world. She isn't meant to be fat, at she is an athlete at heart. She loves to win and show others how things should be done. She makes a good therapist. She gets along with Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, Aquarius, and another Aries who can match her energy.

    In Aries, the Sun is highly action oriented. You like to do your thing, and you are opinionated and direct in doing it. Your Aries personality constantly wants to charge ahead, and insists on being the one who organizes, rather than ever allowing yourself to be led or organized by others. You have a hard time recognizing any point of view except your own. Highly action oriented, when an idea strikes you, you are off quickly to carry it out. Yet you are not so good in seeing projects through to a conclusion. Follow-up and finish work are not matters that suit your style. You constantly need new goals, new projects, and new challenges.
    You are a quick learner and a self-starter; enthusiastic and curious. The main challenge for an Aries Sun sign native is the control of impulses. You must avoid scattering forces, for if you can learn to think before taking action, your energetic nature will enable you to do much. Natural impulsiveness and inability to listen to the advice of others sometimes involves you in difficulties. To succeed, you must learn to think everything through carefully before you proceed. Patience and the ability to plan are areas in which you may have to apply extra effort. You must reflect on the total effect of your actions to grow and progress in life.

    You may have a sharp temper and a quick fuse as Aries is ruled by Mars, the planet associated with war and combat. Fortunately, you get over anger as quickly as it comes, and you never hold a grudge. You are neither devious nor subtle in your actions. Many Aries Sun natives are down right blunt. Only with concentration and attention can you ever acquire much diplomacy and tact.
    With your natural Aries inclinations, you have a true adventurer's or pioneer's spirit; a longing for independence and a tendency to fancy yourself as a free soul. Born to lead, but not born to handle the mundane responsibility or bureaucratic red tape. When faced with complex details, you become very frustrated. Fully matured, your Aries spirit aspires to a gallant "never say die" attitude, and a willingness to take advantage of each new opportunity that comes along.
