"I SPARK, therefore I am" - Shrink_U :)

I am a 32 year old wife and mother of two. Like most of us.. I have tried almost every diet out there and failed. I can not believe I am still obese! I am so tired of this. I need to lose over 150 pounds. I am looking forward to watching others on their journey.

I have been overweight my entire life. Funny thing is.. when I was a young child I never realized I was overweight until other people told me. All through high school I fluctuated between 170 pounds and 210 pounds ...

I have been overweight my entire life. Funny thing is.. when I was a young child I never realized I was overweight until other people told me. All through high school I fluctuated between 170 pounds and 210 pounds and I was always confident and motivated. I was happy in my skin and I rarely felt I was fat unless someone pointed it out to me. I miss having that confidence about myself.

I met my husband in 2000 I was around 195 pounds and I was SUPER confident .. I was very comfortable with who I was. After I had my first child in 2002 I was 215 pounds and I quickly got pregnant again!! lol.. My daughter was born 2 weeks shy of a year after my son. I was 265 after her birth in 2003 and never took it off...

It was sooooo difficult working a stressful full time job and juggling two babies in diapers. My husband worked night shifts and I worked long days. We rarely saw each other. I had the kids while he was at work.. and he had the kids while I was at work. We were both so exhausted. We gained lots of weight over the next couple of years. There was fast food.. too much quick processed foods. So little sleep-- so much stress..
I was already big.. I just kept getting bigger.
I am sure that my weight crept up past the 330's at one point.. I'm not sure how high it got. Several years ago I started eating better and being more active.. after a few months I bought a scale and saw what my weight was for the first time in a long time. It was 323. So.. I'm sure it was much higher before I started being more active and eating better.

So I found out that I have hypothyroid in 2011. This makes the past 20+ years of my life make so much more since now. I ate less and moved more than my siblings.. but I was the fat one. I have always struggled with depression, insomnia, moodiness, chronic fatigue. I really hope working on regulating my thyroid will help my efforts in weight loss. I know I have to continue eating better and moving more.. but maybe now the scale will actually move more and I will start to feel physically and emotionally better.

I am starting over again! I plan on going back to college in the Fall of 2012-- It has been over 12 years since I have been in school! I am ready to live my life.. It is never too late! I found out in April that I am also a Type 2 diabetic. So here I am-- starting over AGAIN.

The Aquarian child is some how an isolated only child, who spends a lot of time with adults rather than other children, thus the child learns quickly and becomes very smart. Aquarius has to watch for injury to the ankles.
In Aquarius the Sun is eccentric and original. You're apt to be a superb thinker, and your ideas are frequently advanced, no matter what field of profession you select. Often, your unique approaches to problem solving are viewed as too radical and unworkable, but you prefer to think of them as advanced and progressive instead. Unconventional and outspoken, you see your role as the rebel and the person who rejects worn out traditions and old ways of operating. You like to be with those ushering in the new order and fostering advanced thinking.

Paradoxically, you're a good team player, but one who must have personal freedom. You don't like to feel fenced in. While you're headstrong and inflexible in your ways, you can work very effectively within a large group. You have complete respect for the sound ideas put forward by others. You are aloof and detached, and your concerns are directed toward society rather than to the problems of any one person. You are somewhat impersonal most of the time. You're more emotionally involved with your work than you are with people. You can be highly critical and demanding in a position of authority. Nonetheless, you are a strong leader and organizer. You have a deep understanding of human nature, but often you lack sensitivity to the emotional content of many situations.
You thrive on change and managing the unexpected. Always ahead of your time, you are viewed by everyone as being different and unusual, labels you don't mind accepting. You pride yourself on your ability to find a better way of doing the job. Sometimes you lack follow through, and you always dislike routine. You like to take chances and keep everything stirred up. Occasionally, you enjoy antagonizing people in positions of authority, and stimulating a good argument now and then. You don't mind that you are seen as a bit unusual, in fact, you may encourage this image.
Equality, freedom and fairness are all important issues for you. You strongly subscribe to the doctrine that all people are created equal and should have the same rights and opportunities. In this regard, you are likely to be classified as a progressive and often associated with humanitarian issues and causes. Though you are very involved with such matters, your approach is always somewhat in the abstract, with ideological concepts, the sort that don't usually stem from true emotions. Your approach is often very impersonal and detached.
Friendly and sociable, you may have a wide circle of acquaintances. Friends are very important to you. Intellectually oriented, you are happiest with friends that share common ideas and interests. Strangely, you find it more difficult to cultivate a truly satisfying intimate relationship. This aloofness exists because feelings are rarely expressed outwardly, and you usually seem distant. You resist anything or anyone threatening your independence. -
