OK, I am back. Fell off the horse and blew up like a balloon. After losing nearly 100 pounds, I am back up to my original size and I feel awful. How could I let this happen to me?

Losing weight in 2008. Hey, my name is Shelly and I presently live just outside of Charlotte, NC.

JUST TURNED 50 yrs old (OMG!), I have struggled with weight loss for more than 10 years. I have tried so many different things that are out there, Weight Watchers (look I count all day for my job - counting points just wasn't for me), Slim-Fast (Ugh! need I say more), Six week Body Makeover (which surprisingly worked - I just didn't). I have taken pills and bought machines - too many!

Now I am ready - ready to lose these 150 pounds and say good-bye forever. I know that this will only come from a lifestyle change as I eat correctly and exercise more.

My Goals:
I want to lose 150 pounds and develop a healthy lifestyle (eating and activity).

Reduce my blood pressure.

Get into a size 14 COMFORTABLY!

Increase self-esteem and motivation.

My Program:
I am eating lean meats and vegetables. I exercise once - most often- twice a day. I go to the Y in the mornings and then attend a "boot camp" in Charlotte, NC for 3 nights a week with a personal trainer named Kenya Crooks. If I do not go to Kenya, I go back to the Y for a Body Step or Pump class. (www.kenyacrooks.com)

Personal Information:
I love the Lord with all my heart, soul and mind! I teach children's church (Bible story teller) and a guardian ad litem for my local court system.

I have 3 wonderful adult children!

I love teaching my high school Algebra 1 classes and they are now "my children".

I am so happy to be focused on losing this weight now!

Happy Birthday to You!!

Born today, August 11, you are not always as cautious as you should be, and as a result you are likely to find yourself in considerable danger on occasion, but your native resourcefulness and your almost fearless approach to life will see you through in most cases. You are open to all manner of surprises, and you know how to reap the maximum gains from a situation that you did not even know was developing; when it is upon you, you simply improvise your way to a profitable outcome. The fact that you keep moving forward, no matter what you may be facing, is often a major factor contributing to your success.

Money is likely to be an issue for you throughout your lifetime, and you are likely to be no stranger to its lack or abundance; indeed, you may be both rich and poor again and again throughout your lifetime, as money comes to you -- and leaves again -- on a cyclical basis.

Today’s Leo Horoscope: You may be able to score a come-from-behind victory, but you may have to do one or two things you are not used to doing to make it happen.

Hope your day is wonderful!

Happy Birthday to You!!

Born Aug. 11, you are never happy unless things are well organized and laid out, ready for attention when you can give it. You're not the kind to let things develop organically; you want to be in control of your situation and your destiny far more than that, and you will do what you must to see that things pan out the way you expect. Ah, and therein lies the rub -- for not everything can or will pan out as you expect. It is in the area of adjustment that you may require a little work now and then, for you do not always take the unexpected in stride.

When the world doesn't live up to your admittedly high standards, you will work hard to improve things as best you can -- not so much to make the world itself a better place but simply to make you happier with it. Indeed, there are those who would say that it is all about you.

Hope your day was wonderful!
