Here I am, back on SP. I must say, the support from this community is AH-MAZING. I am 27, always been overweight, and I am just tired of making excuses for myself. So I am re-committing to SP and blogging almost daily to hold myself accountable. I am single, no children except a spoiled dog. I work nights as an RN on a busy orthopedic floor and I admit, eating clean is a huge struggle for me. I am not big on the number on the scale, but I believe in being healthy for me, and this, I know will make the number drop.

My focus for now is going to be consistently putting in the physical work as this is easiest for me (I love working out). Once I get this down, I will add other things into my focus. I am always looking for new friends/buddies so don't be afraid to say hi!

My Goals:
Right now my main goal is to take control of my health and my life.

*Consistent exercise
*Drink at least 8 glasses of water daily
*Run a 5K

Will continue to update

Starting weight
7/21/2013- 260 lbs
7/28/2013-255 lbs
8/4/2013- 257
8/11/2013- 258
8/18/2013- 257 and 1.3 in total lost

My Program:
Consistent exercise and being active on SP...the support is much needed. I will be working on 10 lbs at a time, the big picture is too overwhelming. Once I am on track with working out regularly, I will begin to incorporate food tracking. Trying to do everything at once is too much and I feel as though I would be setting myself up for failure so I am keeping expectations at a minimum for now. Hoping to get in shape enough to join the Navy as a nurse/officer.

Personal Information:
Angie, 27, from St. Louis. Always looking for new spark friends!

    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 Scorpio child is born to a father who didn't want a child for whatever reason, and even though this isn't even talked about in the family, the child picks up on this and learns to not trust others. Scorpio always asks "What do they want from me" or "What is in this for me." Because of this, Scorpio is insecure and must be in control in any relationship they are in.
    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.
    Scorpio gets along with Cancer, Pisces, Virgo, Capricorn and Taurus. They should avoid Libra and Sagittarius, who are both outgoing people that would make Scorpio very jealous. Scorpio health issues involved problems with fertility & the reproductive organs. They can also have problems with the throat including the thyroid.
