A little bit about my pre SP life...

I have always been fat. Ever since I can remember I have been the fat girl. I always had some friends, but felt like my skinny friends liked having me around because I made them look better. I still feel this way sometimes. Boys never payed much attention, so when the first one did I was a sucker. I got pregnant with my first son at age 17, a senior in high school.

A little bit about my pre SP life...

I have always been fat. Ever since I can remember I have been the fat girl. I always had some friends, but felt like my skinny friends liked having me around because I made them look better. I still feel this way sometimes. Boys never payed much attention, so when the first one did I was a sucker. I got pregnant with my first son at age 17, a senior in high school. Before I had my oldest son I weighed 250 lbs. After he was born I lost the "baby weight" right away, but quickly gained it all back putting me in about 275. I just learned to live my life fat, I learned to deal with it. I stayed at about that weight for a long time. Jump forward 4 years. I lost 30 lbs. in anticipation for my wedding. I could have lost more but my dress didn't fit and couldn't be taken in anymore and we couldn't afford to buy a new one so I had to stop. Then I got pregnant on my wedding night. (I know right?) I gained 40 lbs., lost 20 right away but then gained it all back and then some. I was starting to become more and more uncomfortable with my own body. Even this was too fat for me. Something HAD to be done...

Then in late June of 2008, at 288.5 pounds I found Spark People and my life changed. I started eating good, going to a gym and I lost 46 pounds in about 3 1/2 months. It was amazing. My life had really changed. The friendships I formed and the support and knowledge I gained was really amazing. At one point I had lost 70 pounds, gained some back and was at 70 lost again.

Then it all went to hell. I could give you a list of "reasons" but it would just be talk. I have gained it all back, maybe more, I can't bring my self to weigh in. I feel like crap. I get dizzy, I can't breath and I can't sit and move like I want.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH DAMN IT!!!!!!!!!!!

Love,
me

The Aries girl wanted to be like her Dad and be outside with him. She can have a difficult time in relationships as she wants to lead and she loves to start the ACTION, but she likes to hand over the project to someone else to finish as she wants to start something new. She gets along with Leo, Sagittarius, Libra, Gemini and Aquarius. She should avoid Scorpio since he must run any relationship he is in & he is secretive, which she will not tolerate. She is open and honest about what she does & expects others to be as well. She can work as a mental health counselor as she likes to tell others how to live.
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. emoticon
