Time for a change!

Hello and thank you for visiting my page!

My name is Samantha. I am 23 years old and I currently weigh 212 pounds. For as long as I can remember, I have always defined myself as a student, using my studies as an excuse to eat whatever I wanted (oh, the stress!) and to put off exercise day after day after day. Well, I graduated from college in May and, instead of feeling proud when I saw my graduation pictures, all I saw was the 40+ pounds I had gained over the past 4 years.

Well, I graduated from college in May and, instead of feeling proud when I saw my graduation pictures, all I saw was the 40+ pounds I had gained over the past 4 years.

I am now in graduate school and am determined to lose the weight I put on during my previous degree (and then some)! Week by week I am going to learn how to incorporate healthy eating and fitness into my crazy hectic and stressful grad school life and lose weight along the way.

I realize changing my lifestyle and habits will be a challenge, but I know it will be well worth the effort!

If anyone has any tips or advice, they would be greatly appreciated :)

Sagittarius is the sign that espouses such high principles as universal love and world peace. As this period of the year is associated with the spirit of giving and good cheer, the Sagittarius personality is recognized for its generosity and expansive demeanor.

The Sagittarius girl wanted to be like her father, so she grows up loving anything outside the house. She is a hard worker, but she really isn't cut out to be a stay-at-home-mom as housework is boring to her higher mind. She was probably a "tomboy" but could put on a dress and party with the best and look wonderful. (Think Brittney Spears) She can have a weight issue as her ruler is Jupiter the planet that expands everything, but she does have self-discipline and she can exercise and keep herself in shape as she is a fire sign with lots of energy. She makes a good teacher, cowgirl, Vet (she loves animals), farmer, world tour guide, or professional gambler as she loves excitement or working around exciting people. Her health area can be around her hips and groin and she shouldn't smoke as she can have lung issues (her lower sign Gemini rules the lungs.) She loves to buy gifts and can spend way to much money, but she always works and makes more as she is very lucky. She gets along well with Aries, Leo, Libra, Gemini, and Aquarius, but should avoid secretive Scorpio who is really her opposite, as she would never stand for a controlling man to run her life.
You are very gregarious, enthusiastic, and open, in all that you do. You have an ability to understand a broad perspective, and to see everything from a total point of view. Your foresight and an ability to visualize the big picture make matters work out well for you most of the time. Always thinking in broad abstract terms, you usually have trouble focusing on details that arise.
In many ways you are spontaneous, but with this comes an inclination to be bluntly honest and frank, or at least, straightforward and much to the point. You never intend to hurt anyone, but the truth is all important to you, and you never hesitate to tell it like it is. Tact and restraint can be issues of concern, but you probably don't care. You are so independent. You can rarely be pushed an inch in any direction unless you decide the direction your being pushed is where you want to go.
These blows are softened only by your warm, jovial and outgoing friendliness. Even when you stick your hoof in your mouth you can recover and show up as a winner. Often "lady luck" just smiles on you. Sagittarius has a happy-go-lucky, honest, cheerful, and ever optimistic approach to life; but then can turn right around and be so careless, restless and extravagant.
You have a natural love of the outdoors and may develop strong enthusiasm for sports and outdoor adventure. Sagittarius is the sign most often associated with sports, and you are inclined to physical activity and active endeavors, particularly outdoors.
Future-oriented, you rarely allow problems or setbacks to get you down for long. You put disappointment behind you and start working toward your next adventure. Never satisfied with moving along in slow lane, you want to set the pace on a grand scale. Whatever you set out to do, must be the biggest and best. You want to live life to its fullest. You can work well with anybody, accepting them for what they are. You are the natural, open-hearted extrovert, an easy person live and work with. Relying on your glibness and complete self-confidence, you are a natural in the world of selling. Still in the area of organization and perseverance you may need help from other factors in the chart. If you are like most Sagittarius natives, you can be down right irresponsible and unreliable at times. Your personality is such, however, that people don't get upset about it. It's that natural Sagittarius charm that carries you through the tough spots.
Sagittarius is the sign of higher education. You live to expand your horizons in every possible way, wanting to see the world and experience it. You want to meet interesting people and try everything. Your curiosity is boundless and your desire for knowledge is paramount.
