Hi welcome to my page. I am Monique Renee from Los Angeles, California. I am 45, divorced, with no children and have struggled with my weight as long as I can remember. When I hurt myself outside playing, I ran to my grandmother and she would feed me. I then started hanging out in the kitchen with her and would just eat!!! So for me, comfort has been food. So I put the pictures I have on my page as a reminder to myself everyday when I log on this is how I REALLY look and not the fantasy I have in my head. I have now outgrown Lane Bryant and the Avenue's clothes, get out of breath walking up my stairs to my apartment and feel like crap. I need to finally get a hold on my weight and I will....I am! I am doing this for me and I'm loving it so far. I really love this site and can't wait to make new friends. If you need a buddy or someone to talk to, send me a note.

Let's get rid of this weight! Not lose it but get rid of it. I heard someone say when you lose something you find it or it finds you....well I want to get rid of this weight for good!

Addition 1/6/10: Well I started off great last year and here I am a year later BIGGER than I started! YES YA'LL BIGGER!!! But i'm not giving up. So i'm back to try again. One good thing, I QUIT smoking!!! That is a plus.

Addition 8/22/11: Ok I'm back again.

My Goals:
To eat more healthy this year and move my butt! I truly lack in the exercise area and really need to. I can eat the veggies and portions but then the evening hits me and I want the junk. I gasp for air walking up the stairs to my apartment. But NOOOO more! I'm working it all off!

I did not reach this goal but am still believing I can....

Lose 156lbs - 25 lbs at a time by June 2011

25lbs - Ipod
50lbs - wii fitness
75lbs - new outfit
100 lbs - magic mountain (I haven't been to an amusement park in years because i'm too big for the rides)
125 - New wardrobe
156 - Diamond Watch

Main thing is for me to lose the weight!!!

My Program:
Exercise for at least 30 minutes a day

Work on not eating junk food (I love anything sweet)

Eat more veggies

Have healthy snacks at work

Enjoy being outside more

    Libra is not a "fat" sign as it puts her out of balance. Staying slim and fit is natural for you. When Libra over eats it is because she is out of balance in her emotional life. She needs to talk about her feelings to someone. Yoga and dance can be wonderful ways to get exercise and relieve stress.
    Remember, no decision is a decision. Make one and stay with it.
    In Libra the Sun is tolerant, affectionate, and well balanced. You are a courteous and agreeable person who is considerate of other people's feelings. You have a personal charisma attracting friends. Functioning well when working in harmony with other people, you are an excellent team player. You like being on the winning team.
    You get along well with Aries, Gemini, Sagittarius, Aquarius, and Leo.
    Your health issue can be your kidney area and skin problems.
    You are a "steel fist in a velvet glove" so know you can accomplish anything you set your mind to do. You are an excellent student and can excel in math.
    You become unhappy in ugly surroundings. Don't stay in a bad situation as it can make you ill physically. You are frugal and want to get quality for your money that you work hard for.
    You prefer working in a pleasant and very orderly atmosphere, with people who don't put undue pressure on you. You like to see your role as that of peacemaker. Peace and tranquility are so important. The least sign of hostility or discord is very upsetting to you. You refrain from speaking your mind if you fear your thoughts would alienate or start an argument. Always ready to compromise or mediate, you need to be careful not to appear wishy-washy or less than reliable.
    In many ways, you are dependent upon the approval of others. Libra is the sign of relationships. You think of yourself as half a partnership rather than an individual. Because of this feeling of dependence, you put your mate's needs and desires ahead of your own. You may become confused as to what you want at any particular time, versus what your partner wants. Your partner's goals and ambitions become your goals and ambitions. You are the true helpmate. Because of this attitude, Libra is very stable and dependent in a relationship, even a bad one.
    As attached as you are to your partner, you may not really show it much. In your quest for balance and harmony, you rarely have or express strong emotions of any kind. Yours is a very dispassionate demeanor that is detached. You don't invest much passion or feeling in your relationships, loving with your head instead of your heart.
    When cast in a supervisory role you may have some difficulties. This is because you weigh each decision before choosing your direction. You can experience problems if you are called on to make frequent snap decisions for the group. You are an excellent go-between, and not as good at being the leader or boss. Unfortunately, such a balanced view of situations sometimes makes decisive action more difficult. You have a hard time making everyday decisions of little or no consequence. On the big issues, you may vacillate indefinitely.
    One of your main personality traits is a love of justice. You are insistent on fair play. In this too, you have a very balanced and unbiased way of looking at everything in your world. Accordingly, you are often called on to be mediator in family disputes or in disagreements at work. Your impartial judgment can always see both sides of a matter. You can be very cool and detached, keeping your feelings well under control in pursuit of fairness.

    Your love of balance and harmony allows you to appreciate music and the arts. Libra is ruled by Venus, the planet closely associated with artistic endeavors. If you don't have talent yourself, you probably to do have an interest and excellent taste in these matters.
    Courteous and refined, good manners are important to you. You exhibit them and you expect them. You are especially repelled by vulgarity and coarseness. Tactful, diplomatic, refined and socially successful, you strive to say and do the right thing. It is always so important for you to make the right impression.
