It's time to be me again!
I am a working mother of 3 kids still at home (stepmother to 2 out-of-the-house young adults). I have a very demanding job & fun-loving husband. I am a writer, gardener, motorcyclist & outdoors person. Hike anyone? Fishing anyone? Diabetes and Heart disease run in my family and I'm starting to look like those who have suffered from it.
Time to get healthy again!

Thanks to the 'Done Being the Fat Girl' Sparks Team!
I'm Done, too!
I'm Done feeling the waistband dig!
I'm Done feeling winded after hiking, biking or swimming!
I'm Done feeling like I can't be sexy!
I'm Done not having anything fit right!
I'm Done being a poor example to my children!
I'm Done worrying that I'll end up like so many in my unhealthy family!
I'm Done being scared of success!
I'm starting to get this!

    The Scorpio child is born to a father who didn't want a child, for whatever reason & this might never have been discussed in the home, but the sensitive little Scorpio child, who hates loud noises & over-stimulation, picks up on this & learns to not trust others. She is always asking herself "what do they want from me & what is in this for me?" She uses sarcastic comments to "get them first" since she is such an emotional person. This can certainly lead her to having a problem with obesity as food can be her "drug of choice".
    Scorpio gets along with Pisces, Cancer, Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn. BUT, since Scorpio is insecure she MUST be in control of any relationship she is in and this can be difficult for others to take. IF she is sure she has a faithful partner, she will give all she has to a relationship.
    Often, Scorpio supports the family. She does well working alone as she is NOT a "team player". She does well working in police work, as a detective, inspector, under-taker, or a businesswoman.

    Scorpio never has an easy life as she is always in a struggle, but ever decision she makes is her own & she has no one to blame for her situation since she made it by her own chose. Scorpio is a natural athlete, so she doesn't have to be fat. She can make herself anything she wants as she can stay with and finish what she starts. She is never a victim as she rules her own life no matter how simple it is.

    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. emoticon
