Time to Take Control of My Destiny!

I have struggled with my weight for the majority of my life. I was the queen of "I'll start tomorrow", "Next time I'll eat something healthier", I'm gonna start working out Monday!" There are no more tomorrows, just today. Just the here and now! My weight has held me back for to long and I refuse to waste another day of this beautiful life God has blessed me with.

I have struggled with my weight for the majority of my life. I was the queen of "I'll start tomorrow", "Next time I'll eat something healthier", I'm gonna start working out Monday!" There are no more tomorrows, just today. Just the here and now! My weight has held me back for to long and I refuse to waste another day of this beautiful life God has blessed me with.

I 'm 33 and married almost 5 years next March. I joined Spark a few years ago and after a year of little to no success, I knew something was wrong with my body. It took almost another year before I was finally diagnosed with hypothyroidism. I just started meds this September.

We are looking forward to starting a family, but I have to get healthy before we can even try. On my own I feel I have no will power or self-control, but I feel holding myself more accountable will help make me more successful! I'm hoping that Spark will help me on my journey.

My Goals:
2013 Goals

It's hard to have weight loss goals with hypothyroidism. Weight loss is sporadic and difficult to achieve, so 3-4 lbs a month would be optimal.

My Program:
I use a variety of HITT workouts.

As far as nutrition goes, I follow a low carb, high protein and fiber plan. I get in as many fresh fruits and veggies as I can. Plus, 8 glasses of water daily. I've recently started going GF to help with the hypothyroidism.

I also take a multivitamin and calcium supplement to help round things out.

Personal Information:
I was born and raised in New Braunfels and am currently residing in San Antonio. I graduated with my BA in Communication from UTSA Dec 2010. My dream job is to be a corporate event planner and author. I hope to get to a healthy weight sometime this year so that we can get pregnant and have a safe, healthy pregnancy.

emoticon Happy Belated Birthday, DONE GIRL emoticon

The Aries girl wanted to be like her father, so she always takes the lead. Aries must watch for accidents and also for injury to the head. Aries gets along with Leo, Sagittarius, Libra, Gemini and Aquarius. (Aretha Franklin is an Aries woman who made bad choices always having to get the exciting "bad boy." ) The Aries woman needs to do for herself. She isn't meant to be fat as she is a natural athlete and has all the willpower she needs to do what she wants.

The symbol for Aries is the Ram, because of the headlong, direct, and assertive nature of the sign. The sign is also symbolized by seeds shooting out of the ground in the springtime, suggesting a time and spirit of renewal.

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.
