About Me:

-I'm Kasi, a 27 yr old living in Upstate SC, originally from Upstate NY.
-Live with my hyperactive 2 year old pup Dexter.
-Hope to add to my little family one day, when I'm healthier
-I work 2 jobs. Certified Medical Assistant by day, Monitor Tech by night.

My health has been spiraling out of control for the last few years. Hard to admit that I'm so bad off, one of the unhealthiest people in my family.

I've struggled with depression, horrible acid reflux, IBS, hypothyroidism (and every side effect that comes with it), high blood pressure, pre-diabetes, high cholesterol and I'm obese. I know I have one foot in the grave and it kills me to know that I'm only 27 and I've let myself get this bad.

--Been a member of this site for a long time, have seen results then something strikes me down and I seem to lose it. Hoping for people to go through this next phase with, it would be awesome to have company :)

2016 Goals:

1) To exercise more days than not on a monthly basis. I used to make plans to exercise than something would happen and I'd fail to do it. This leads me to throwing everything out the window for that day..or even the entire week.

2) To try do something healthy each day. Whether it be eating a vegetable to taking my dog for a walk.

3) To improve my levels on blood tests. I would love to lower my A1c and LDL and raise my HDL.

4) To stick to my strict diet (or at least try to) that my doctor put me on.


Member Since: 5/28/2006

Fitness Minutes: 2,926

My Goals:
-I want to focus on 10 pounds at a time. I want to be healthier and look good. I'm starting off slow and trying to build up motivation while continuing.

-To meet people going through the same thing.

-To become healthier and feel better.

-Since I have a BMI that has categorized my as being obese, I would like to try to get to an overweight BMI to start with, and then go on to have a normal/ healthy BMI.


My Program:
- Watch over my calorie intake and focus on portion control.

-Exercise most days of the week, both cardio and strength training.

-No Soda or chips!!

- I am going to try to do a little more each day and hopefully continue successfully.

    Like the other water signs, this sign is very sensitive and emotional. With Scorpio, unlike the water signs Cancer and Pisces, the emotions remain under rigid control. They may not even be apparent to those who are very close to you. When your emotions do erupt, they do so very violently, often with a strong burst of sarcasm and vindictiveness.
    The Scorpio child is born to a father who didn't want a child for whatever reason, and even though this isn't even talked about in the family, the child picks up on this and learns to not trust others. Scorpio always asks "What do they want from me" or "What is in this for me." Because of this, Scorpio is insecure and must be in control in any relationship they are in.
    The strength of Scorpio is in the methods employed to meet every challenge. You approach everything with intensity and passion. Nothing is ever halfway because you put everything you have in your work; mind, heart, soul. You are one of those people who always gives 100% and sometimes more. Many born under the sign Scorpio become classic workaholics.
    You may have an undesirable trait commonly found in the Scorpio person, holding a grudge for a very long time. The underside of Scorpio is often possessed with uncontrollable jealousies and the strongest passions. When offended the reaction is surely revenge. The higher side of Scorpio still dominates people and situations, but with much for the common good. This sign produces very few lukewarm people. You are either very bad or very good.
    In Scorpio, the Sun is intense, skeptical and secretive. There is an intensity and a secretiveness in your makeup which results in an inscrutable persona most people cannot penetrate. This trait makes the Scorpio personality hard to detect. You like to remain incognito, and do so with your very secretive nature. You are a master at hiding your emotions. You neither flinch nor blush. It's hard for you to share your inner feelings with anyone.
    You can be very critical and demanding, creating a forceful and dominating demeanor. You are strong-willed and determined, and you usually act with incisiveness. Your critical nature allows you to make shrewd and unusually accurate judgments at a rapid rate. You can penetrate the hidden agenda of those you meet. It is in your nature to protect yourself by knowing what your opponents are thinking and doing. You have uncanny intuition and accurate perceptions, making you almost psychic in understanding and making emotional connections with other people. Very few successfully earn your trust. Often, you experience difficulties with the authority figures in your life.
    At home, you may be something of a tyrant, wanting everything done your way. You think you are always right and won't tolerate dissent. There is a tendency for you to impose your will on friends and family since you feel so passionately that your ideas are in their best interest. No one takes relationships more serious than you. Although you are highly attracted to, and attractive to, the opposite sex, in many respects you function well as a 'lone wolf' type.
    Scorpio gets along with Cancer, Pisces, Virgo, Capricorn and Taurus. They should avoid Libra and Sagittarius, who are both outgoing people that would make Scorpio very jealous. Scorpio health issues involved problems with fertility & the reproductive organs. They can also have problems with the throat including the thyroid.
