So here I am, having obviously neglected myself for the past 10+ years, now I have 98 pounds to lose. Actually, make that 54 - already lost 44 since I started this journey on October 27, 2009! Keep track of my loss on the ticker below.

Doing my best to make it a permanent lifestyle change instead of a 'diet'. If it is a 'diet' then I will have to do it all over again in another few years and that is not what I want to do. Slowly but surely I will make small permanent changes in my habits and by the time I reach my goal, I will just be running on instinct.

Best to you all in your journey!

    Happy Belated Birthday to You!!

    Born October 12, you have been endowed with tremendous physical skills, and you will no doubt be known for your natural ability to endure great hardship in your pursuit of personal goals. What is most remarkable, however, is your versatility; you seem to have the kind of body -- and mind -- that allow you to engage in all manner of activities, and to do a variety of things well. Take care, however, that this doesn't result in a lack of singular success; you must focus on one endeavor eventually, if only to enjoy the success you deserve. You don't want to be simply a jack-of-all-trades.

    You are likely to go through several distinct periods of life, each marked by dedication to a different kind of endeavor -- and at least one will be more spiritual or intellectual than physical. The surprising thing, of course, is that it may be this endeavor that brings you the most contentment!

    Today’s Libra Horoscope: The time has come for you to attempt the impossible -- though you know full well that if you can dream it, you can do it!

    You share a birthday with: Bode Miller, Olympic skier; Kirk Cameron, actor; Hugh Jackman, actor; Susan Anton, actress and model; Luciano Pavarotti, operatic tenor.

    Hope your day was wonderful!
