WELCOME TO MY SPARK PAGE!!!!

**TIME FOR A WELL NEEDED UPDATE**** 3/20/11

HERE I AM NOW AT 258 (went up some TOM) but I am smaller than I have ever been in my adult life. But funny thing is since i havent been working out like i should i actually feel fat and like i have gained weight when in fact i have lost durring the last 6 months of very sporatic workouts...

so im very happy to have lost and not gained.

BUT NOW IM BACKED FOCUSED AND IN THE GAME! WISH ME LUCK!

IM GOING FOR ANOTHER 50LBS! THAT WOULD PUT ME AROUND 200LBS! WOW CANT EVEN IMAGINE IT. BUT HEY... I NEVER IMAGINED I WOULD ***EVER EVER EVER*** LOSE 80LBS AND HERE I AM!!!

SO THANKFUL THAT I COULD DO IT ALL ON MY OWN WITH WORKING OUT AND CHANGING WHAT I EAT. SIMPLE BUT YET SO HARD. I TRULY BELIEVE THAT MOST THE BATTLE IS MENTAL BECAUSE I SPEND LOTS OF TIME TELLING MYSELF I CANT WORKOUT OR DONT OR ITS KILLING ME... WHEN I HAD TO RETRAIN MY THOUGHT TO SAY... IT WONT KILL ME, I NEED THIS, THIS IS FUN!!! HEYYYYY WORKING OUT AT 1ST IS NOT FUN LOL BUT IT REALLY DOES GET FUN!

SO GOOD LUCK TO ALL YALL!! SWEAT SWEAT SWEAT!!!

GOING FOR MY 50LBS!

I WOULD HIGHLY ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO VISIT http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MaBmGH3ub6k
&feature=related
JUST TO SEE WHAT BEING OVER WEIGHT CAN DO. WE ALL GO THROUGH IT... WE LOOSE AND GAIN TWICE THAT MUCH BACK. I'M SURE NO ONE RAISES THEIR HAND AND SAY " I WANT TO BE FAT AND OBESE OR OVERWEIGHT WHEN I GROW UP"

IT DEFINITELY GIVES ME EVEN MORE MOTIVATION AND A REAL LIFE EXAMPLE OF WHERE I DONT WANT TO BE AND MAKES ME REALIZE THAT I'M WORTH ALL OF THE HARD SWEAT AND TEARS. HOPE THIS HELPS.

NOW ABOUT ME......

I JUST JOINED SP 8/18/08 AND I AM VERY EXCITED. I LOOK FOWARD TO MEETING NEW PEOPLE AND STAYING MOTIVATED TO ACCOMPLISH MY GOAL. I WEIGH 308 AS OF TODAY AND HAVE ALREADY LOST 29 LBS. I WAS DOWN 37 BUT GAINED 8 BACK. SO I'M READY TO LOOSE AND CHANGE MY LIFE.

STARTING OFF I JUST DECIDED TO FOCUS MORE ON EXERCISING MORE. I FEEL THAT INSTEAD OF SITTING ON THE COUCH EATING, ALL I HAVE TO DO IS GET MOVING. I FOUND THAT IF I GET UP AND SAY I'LL JUST EXERCISE FOR 10 MIN AND STOP, I NEVER STOP!! I USUALLY WILL DO MY 30 MIN BECAUSE ONCE I START I DONT STOP.

IT IS MY VOW TO MYSELF TO DO THIS AND NEVER STOP. I REALIZE I'M NOT PERFECT AND I HAVE TO KEEP THAT IN MIND. SO IF I MISS A DAY, 2 DAYS OR WHAT EVER EXERCISING, I JUST HAVE TO START AGAIN AND NOT GO WEEKS WITHOUT IT. I'M GOING TO NOT GO MORE THAN 1 FULL WK W/O EXERCISING UNLESS IM SICK OR PHYSICALLY UNABLE.

WHEN I EXERCISE I FEEL SO MUCH MORE CONFIDENT AND HAPPY. ITS DEFINATELY A STRESS RELIEVER. IT MAKES ME FEEL LIKE I HAVE DONE SOMETHING FOR ME.

IF YOU LIKE MAKE ME A FRIEND AND KEEP WATCHING ME AND MY PROGRESS AND I WELCOME ALL COMMENTS THAT MAY HELP ME. I WILL UPDATE PICTURES AS I CAN.

    The Aries girl wanted to be like her father, so she always takes the lead. Aries must watch for accidents and also for injury to the head. Aries gets along with Leo, Sagittarius, Libra, Gemini and Aquarius.
    The Aries girl is a natural athlete and no one has more willpower to determine her own life than she.

    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.

    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.
