Me and some of my Peruvian girls - Jeesenia, Vilma, Janeth, and Monica
Arequipa, Peru - Sept. 2010
Hi! I am 27 years old and joined this site to obviously lose weight. I know I need to make changes to accomplish my goal, so I hope this site will help. I thankfully do not have any serious health issues [yet] so I am going to work towards eliminating my risk by losing weight. I do have PCOS and am hoping that by losing some weight, I will be able to get pregnant in the future.
I joined this site a few years ago, but I fell off the bandwagon and gained all my weight back plus more. I can't continue to live like this so I am back! My goal is to lose at least 100 lbs by the time I graduate. This may seem like a big goal, but I am willing to work hard in order to achieve it.
Also, I have never ran a mile in my life, so I am going to work to accomplish that.
Currently, I working on my portion control and learning not to eat when I am bored, sad, happy, etc. Recently I have learned about bento boxes and have been trying to pack my lunches accordingly. By packing my lunches in a fun way, it eliminates my desire to eat out or eat food that I shouldn't. Also, I work out with a personal trainer about two times a week.
I love, Love, LOVE to travel!! I have been to a few far-off lands and I thoroughly enjoy it! I currently support an organization that helps abused, orphaned, and abandonded girls in Peru and I am fortunate to be able to visit every year. My other interest is photography... so please expect my pictures to change periodically!

Happy BELATED Birthday, DONE GIRL. We are singing your song.
The Leo woman isn't cut out to be fat as she wants more than anything to walk into a room and have the attention of everyone in it. NOT negative attention and criticism, but the kind that says "I have control of myself & I can teach you how to as well."
No one has more control over her life than the Leo woman as she makes her own decisions. She has the determination and ability to stay with and finish whatever she wants. Have you ever seen a Lioness on a hunt? She is determined and she stays until she gets her goal complete.
She loves to teach others. She loves children & often works with them in some way, but she often has few of her own. She needs a group to deal with. She gets along well with Libra, Aquarius, Gemini, Aries and Sagittarius. She should avoid secretive Scorpio, since she lays all of her cards out on the table and wants others to do the same. She'd never think of getting revenge, as she has much to much "class" as the Lioness to do that. She will "get one up" by fairness & winning because she has worked and put out the effort.
Heart disease can be an issue for her, so she needs to take care of her health. Dance, running, and bike races can give her the chance to "win." She is a natural "beauty queen" and can work in fashion, hair, or makeup. She has a sense of style and drama and knows colors.
The charismatic center of attention, the Leo Sun Sign personality is ambitious, dominant and full of confidence. A born leader, they are most comfortable when they are in charge, and they bring out a strong sense of loyalty in their followers. Strong-willed and independent, they often place themselves in the center ring. They may be philosophical and spiritual, even if they aren't necessarily religious. They dream big, but have a practical follow-through that inspires confidence in others. They thrive on adversity, and are idealistic. They like to make an indelible first impression. Whether that is with fashion or by choosing a gaudy appearance one won't soon forget, depends on the individual. When they get what they want, they return friendship, warmth and loyalty to those around them.
Without direction, Leo Sun Sign can be arrogant or overly controlling. Their challenge, therefore, is to conquer their own powerful nature. They can be stubborn and temperamental. Change is difficult to adjust to for them, at least at first. If jealous, they do not hesitate to use trickery or cunning to defeat their rivals. Possible negative traits include being self-centered, boastful, snobbish and disdainful. Luckily, they are usually quick to notice how others see them, and they may be able to adapt to a more likable persona. They can be their own worst enemy when they go too far trying to get attention. It may actually turn away those they hope to attract.
Leo the Lion
They are also loyal and devoted, especially in romantic relationships. At the same time, they may have numerous love affairs just because of the sensual pleasure involved. They like lots of affection and can be intensely enthusiastic. If rejected in love, they can be as ice. Once they give up on a relationship, there is no going back. They have a gregarious personality and hold marriage, family and children close to heart. They want to be the king or queen of the house and they will strive to be the best they can be. Their home will be a showplace as they use it as a backdrop for their perfect family. If you put your Leo on a pedestal, they will do all they can to keep you happy. If you try to take control, you may cause a power struggle that may end the entire relationship.
Professionally, the Leo Sun Sign does well at any occupation where they have room to advance. Politicians, managers, organizers, doctors, lawyers, teachers and project leaders are frequent career choices. Any job with a prestigious title may be attractive to them. Performing and painting may appeal to artistic Leos. They are good motivators for their team or subordinates. This Sun Sign usually does well with finances, if they manage to control their spending. They believe that looking successful will attract success. This can cause them to overspend at the wrong time or to be extravagant to stroke their ego.
The Leo Sun Sign personality responds well to compliments. If a loved one disappoints them, they are quickly disillusioned. They are extremely sensitive to criticism, and are slow to forgive. Intelligent and motivated, they work hard to make those around them comfortable as long as they feel appreciated.
