Hi, my name is Sarah and I am from Dayton, Ohio. My goal is to get healthy and lose weight. I currently have a goal weight of 150 lbs but will change that goal as needed as I get closer. Right now I just want to improve my health (mental and physical).

These quotes are from some plaques that my mom gave me, She declared 2010 will be a year of inspiration for me :)

"It is not how far you fall but how high you bounce!" (author unknown)

"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...It's learning to dance in the rain" (author unknown)

This one is my favorite:
"Promise me you'll always remember...You're BRAVER than you believe, and STRONGER than you seem, and SMARTER than you think" (Christopher Robin to Pooh)

Fitness Minutes: 3,325

My Goals:
My overall goal is to reach a weight of 150 lbs. By doing that I know my health will improve and I will feel so much better. Along the way I want to increase my activity and learn to eat better.

My weight loss goals:
288.5- starting 3/24/10
260 (10%)--

Fitness goals:
1. Get back into the habit of going to the gym...NO EXCUSES!
2. Participate in the Flying Pig 1/2 marathon 2011.
3. Participate in a full marathon in 2012.

My Program:
I'm trying a straightfoward approach...eat healthier and exercise more. I will make the effort to plan ahead and not skip meals because that has become one of my biggest problems. I work all day, don't eat and then go crazy afterwards.

Personal Information:
I am 41 years old. I live in Xenia, OH but am from Nebraska originally. I am a pharmacist. I have been overweight for most of my life and am ready to turn that around and start living healthier.

Other Information:
I love to read. I generally stick with mysteries but also got caught up in the "Twilight" series and I love the "Harry Potter" books too.

    The Scorpio child is born to a father who didn't want a child for whatever reason, which may never have been discussed in the home, but the sensitive little Scorpio picks up on this and learns not to trust others. She asks "What do they want from me and what is in this for me?" Scorpio is a good sign for a woman to be since it is "fixed" water, making her very emotional, but in our culture a woman is allowed to be emotional. She can be very jealous, even of siblings when she feels she has been slighted. Scorpio being a "fixed" sign can stay with and finish what she starts but she also has a very difficult time trying to change. She can certainly have a weight problem as her emotions get the best of her. But, she can exercise and stay with a routine, so her weight issue is ALL up to her and no one else. What she is is all of her own making. She lives a life of extremes and is never center-field on any issue. She makes up her mind quickly and stays with her decision or feelings on an issue.
    She gets along with Virgo, Taurus, Pisces, Capricorn and Cancer. She should avoid Sagittarius as he will be to blunt for her although she can be very sarcastic when she wants to be. It is her way of protecting herself and getting out her "sting."
    She makes a good detective or policewoman.
    Scorpio must be in control of any relationship she is in, as this goes back to her feeling unsure as a child.
    The Scorpio woman is often the "breadwinner" in the family, or she supports others such as a parent or "down on his luck" relative.
    No matter how successful Scorpio is in life, she always feels her life is a struggle. It is never easy for her from her point of view. She feels the world is against her in some way. Again, this goes back to her childhood.

    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 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.
