Hi :o) My name is Valerie, and I'm DONE BEING THE FAT GIRL! I lost 40 pounds last year and thought I was on my way all the way down. I felt soooo goooood! Then we went away on a 2 week holiday to an all inclusive resort and I ate and drank everything I wanted to. When we came back I just couldn't seem to get back with the plan and now I'm right back where I started and feeling awful again.
I want those good feelings back, the energy that I had, and the feeling that I actually wanted to get dressed and go out somewhere because I could fit into some nice clothes. That feeling good about yourself feeling!
My problem is I'm a perfectionist. I have to have everything perfect, and I can do it for a while, but then something gets in the way and I can't be perfect, and I give up. I need to learn to pick myself up and keep going, not fall apart and go back to doing everything wrong!
SO.... I start again tomorrow.. new year, same plan! NO MORE FAT GIRL!

Smaller goals are drinking 8 glasses of water per day, sleeping at least 7 hours per night, not eating in the evening, and eating more fruits and veggies.

My Program:
I'm trying to eat healthier and stay within the eating guidlines that Sparks suggests.
I work out every day that I can, alternating cardio and strength training. My husband and I are working together at working out and eating healthier. We have a home gym for strength training and some cardio equipment as well. I also have a young puppy that loves to go for walks!

    Those born on the Sagittarius-Capricorn Cusp will help shape the future. They have an innate talent for sensing the way things should go and bringing them to fruition. They begin preparing themselves early for what life may bring. Their motto is "Always be prepared." Not the most patient person on the block, they certainly appreciate those who agree with their plans. If they don't find the cooperation they need, they will forge on ahead on their own with no problem.
    Sagittarius-Capricorn understands the power in silence. They have the ability to utilize this to help their cause. Unless they exercise caution, they may find themselves alienating those they work or live with.
    Sagittarius-Capricorn needs to temper their intensity. This will allow them to control their moods rather than letting their moods control them. They need to focus on building and maintaining social relationships. If they are not careful, they will close themselves off.
    Sagittarius-Capricorn is practical and optimistic. They are outgoing, and can be very friendly. Responsible and reliable, they are good to have at your side in a pinch. They like things to work in traditional ways. They have a great sense of humor. They like one-on-one competitions. They are devoted to their partners, and great fun to be around. They like to explore new things, and want to experience as many things as they can. Hard working, they are not easily deterred from their goals.
    The Cusp of Prophecy is known to be trustworthy, self-reliant, loyal, ambitious, charming, practical, economical, shrewd, fun, responsible, warm, funny, optimistic, romantic, playful, and enthusiastic. They can also be blunt, impulsive, vain, aggressive and quick-tempered.
    Individuals born on the Sagittarius-Capricorn cusp are inspired teachers, and they are very fond of children. They make astute observations, and make excellent critics, being just and fair. While they don't fall in love easily, once they do they are faithful to the end. They give their best and expect the best in return. Methodical and efficient, they complete every task to the best of their ability. They like to travel and have an affinity to language.
    Sagittarius-Capricorn is a great thinker, and sometimes is gifted with prophecy to some degree. When these two signs work together in harmony, they have an unparalleled ability to create successful ideas and bring them to fruition. They have the determination to overcome whatever frustrations or obstacles as may arise along the way.
    Happy New Year 2016. emoticon
