Better to realize my sweet tooth in my miniature work than on my hips.

Time to do some housekeeping, spruce my page up and get back to the program! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Be the kind of woman that when your feet
hit the floor each morning
the devil says
"Oh Crap, She's up!"

Plant seeds of expectation in your mind; cultivate thoughts that anticipate achievement. Believe in yourself as being capable of overcoming all obstacles and weaknesses.

- Norman Vincent Peale

Your stomach shouldn't be a trash can.

Getting discouraged? Lift something equal to the weight you've lost and carry it around for awhile.

"Obedient women are never remembered in history."

You will never plough a field if you only turn it over in your mind. ~ Irish Proverb

Lean into your changes. Don't try to do everything at once.
You'll only get frustrated and fall off the wagon
~ Kathy Freston

    I just got back on Spark as well. It's my on-again-off-again goal oriented headquarters. I see you just had a birthday as I did. Happy Birthday! Sure makes you feel like getting it in gear, huh? At least it did for me. I didn't want to go another year in an unhealthy frame of mind, body, and soul. We only have so many years to live on this earth. Might as well make the most of them and make them enjoyable so we can give ourselves and those we love the best, I think. Anyway, didn't mean to get philosophical! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a note. I hope you are doing well, too! emoticon

    emoticon Happy BELATED Birthday, DONE GIRL emoticon Some how I missed your listing.
    emoticon The Scorpio child is born to a father who didn't want a child for what ever reason, even though this may never be spoken about openly in the family, but the sensitive Scorpio child picks up on it and learns not to trust others. Scorpio always asks herself "what do they want from me and what is in this for me?" She is sarcastic in order to defend herself and "get them before they get me." It is a self-protection that she learns early. She is not a "team player" but will take her ball and go home and play alone if necessary. She does best working for herself.

    Scorpio is a loyal friend, but she has to be in control. In any love relationship she must run what happens so she needs a partner who doesn't mind this. A nice Pisces, Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn, or Taurus works fine. She needs to avoid the "bad boy" although she often wants to show off to other women that she can get the "cheater" to want her rather than them, but them he goes back to his bad ways and she gets jealous and wants to get even. (Demi Moore the Scorpio is dealing with this now with Ashton Kucher.)
    She can have a weight issue, but no one has more strength and determination than she has. She doesn't have to be fat unless she wants to be.
    Like the other water signs, this sign is very sensiti e 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.
