Motivator...bridesmaid in December 2012!

After being overweight since I was around 12, I am ready to experience the thrills of real health :) I'd like to be able to enjoy running, not be ashamed to wear certain clothes, and receive more frequent attention from men (not just for my personality or big boobs). And...I'd really like to lose weight so that it will be worthwhile to get a breast reduction. I say that'd be a pretty good final reward apart from all the awesome intrinsic benefits, right?

I would just really like ...

I would just really like to experience thin. I've never been thin, though of course I've been thinner than I am now. Last time I weighed 200? Fall 2004. 180? Fall 2002. 160? Fall 2001. I mean, I would be thrilled to get down to 160, but I'm setting my ultimate goal steeper, at 140. Last time I weighed that...probably 7th or 8th grade, so in 1999 or 2000! And, of course, at those weights I was always larger than most girls my age, but heading back through those weights now?? It will feel good, and keep me going, I hope!

I know that I set a very large goal, but I understand that it will take a lot of time and effort :)

Happy Birthday DONE GIRL
The Taurus girl is born to a mother she can never live up to and she learns to be stubborn to get her own way since her mother is always pushing her to do what she wants her to do. The little Taurus girl can turn to food for comfort as she feels she isn't given the attention she wants from the parent. Thus she can have a weight issue. She loves the tastes, smells and textures of all things and especially food. She makes a wonderful cook, and can work in the restaurant business as she is a good business woman. She can work in the fashion industry, or hairdresser business as she loves beauty and style. She usually has a wonderful singing voice and has music talent. She can be a good actress. Her health issue is her throat area including her thyroid. She gets along best with Virgo, Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio and Capricorn. She does well being the "woman behind the successful man" as she really needs to have money.
Taurus, the second sign of the zodiac, is all about reward. Unlike the Aries love of the game, Taurus loves the rewards of the game. Think physical pleasures and material goods, for those born under this sign revel in delicious excess. They are also a tactile lot, enjoying a tender, even sensual, touch. Taurus adores comfort and likes being surrounded by pleasing, soothing things. Along these lines, they also favor a good meal and a fine wine. The good life in all its guises, whether it's the arts or art of their own making (yes, these folks are artistic as well), is heaven on Earth to the Taurus-born.
It's the Bull that serves as the Taurus's mascot, and along with that comes the expectation that these folks are bull-headed and stubborn. Yes, they are. Hey, this sign has a Fixed Quality attached to it after all, so expect that things will occasionally grind to a halt. That said, Taurus doesnŐt start out with the intention of getting stuck. They simply want to get things done, and it's that steady, dogged persistence that winds up being viewed as stubbornness. Bulls are actually among the most practical and reliable members of the zodiac, and they are happy to plod along, as it were, in pursuit of their goals. The good news for Bulls is that once they get to the finish line, they'll swaddle themselves in material goods. A self-indulgent beast? Perhaps, but if you toiled as laboriously as these folks do, you'd need some goodies, too.
Taurus is ruled by Venus, a lovely goddess who didn't deny herself many things. In ancient Roman mythology, Venus was the Goddess of Love, Beauty and Pleasure, and Taurus has pretty much taken up where she left off. Bulls are fond of all things pretty, whether it's in their home, at a museum or on the stage. Life as one sweet pas de deux is how the Taurus-born like it. To onlookers, this may look like so much materialism and blessed excess, but Bulls really aren't interested in living without beauty in their lives. Beauty to the Bull also comes in the way of a happy home life, one that includes a partner and a stable relationship.
Taurus values harmony in their personal lives, so they'll work hard on keeping their mate happy. The Bull's penchant for sensual pleasures, of course, can only help things along! Bulls can also be the sappiest of sentimentalists. Will all this overweening attention to their mate turn a Bull into a possessive mess? Probably not, although these folks do have to manage their tendency to latch on a bit tight. At the end of the day, however, TaurusŐs are true romantics and loyal to the core.

The Element associated with Taurus is Earth. No pie-in-the-sky for these practical folks, since they'd much rather be on terra firma. Bulls tend toward conservatism, and this is often seen in their day-to-day behavior. No far-out schemes (that's Air) or shrieking ultimatums (more like Fire) here. Taurus much prefers to take each day slowly and steadily and work toward their ultimate goal. Along these lines, those born under this sign are happy to stick with their projects until they have reached a successful conclusion. They are also extremely patient and dependable along the way. Does that sound earthy enough? The only kink in this well-oiled chain is the heckler in the gallery that tries to upbraid the Bull. These folks may not have a hair-trigger temper, but it's short enough. Bulls in a hissy fit can get pretty argumentative, but eventually they'll calm down and come back to center, since these folks would much rather be Zen. The Earth in this sign does tend to act as a balancing mechanism so that things never get truly out of hand. For every one person who considers the Bull a pain, there are two who will say 'No way!' and happily take the Taurus' gentle charms any day.
Seeing as how Bulls are generally strong and well-built, it's no surprise that these folks enjoy testing their strength on the field of play. Expect to find a Bull engaged in a spirited game of hoops or mountain climbing. Hiking is also a favorite pastime, since it keeps Taurus close to their beloved earth. Indoor adventures are also favored by Bulls, which is why the opera or ballet is right up a Taurus's alley. When it comes to love, the Taurus-born are devoted, romantic and somewhat possessive. Their sensual nature has a way of erasing any mistakes! Since Taurus rules the neck and throat, Bulls would be wise to keep a silky scarf at hand, ideally in a warm (and soothing) earth tone.
The great strength of Taurus is in their stability, loyalty and dogged determination. Bulls want to get the job done, and they will. What better way to get the riches they so fervently crave?
