Being heavy as a young teen didn't really bother me......until I got teased by the so-called "popular people" that looked like they hadn't eaten in decades. Even after losing almost 26lbs, their teaseing still continued forever.

what i want is to live the rest of my 20's like it should be and not worrying about what other people think about me especially what i look like and how big i am. i want to be happy and everyone else here too
I'm determined to not give up or throw in the towel this time when there are road blocks and speed bumps throughout all of the journey i can't give in because weight loss is not just a one day thing. it takes time. you have to continue for the rest of your life. 2010 the year I shed the rest of this weight off and find the newer, healthier, happier me - through daily motivation, exercise and better nutrition.

    Aries is a hard sign for a woman to be since she wants to lead and in our culture, some don't take well to that idea. Thus she can be labelled "bossy". (Think Lucy in Peanuts.) The Aries woman wanted to be like her father, so she loves the outdoors. She has to be careful of head injuries and accidents as she will rush in without thinking and she loves to take chances. She hates to be bored. She gets along well with Sagittarius, Libra, Gemini, Leo, and Aquarius.
    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
