I am DONE!
I am done being winded when I walk up stairs
I am done with not being able to bend over & breathe :/
I am done with the aches and pains caused by my weight
I am done not being able to buy clothes I like
I am done letting the past rule my life and affect my future
I am done listening to those that say I can't
I am done feeling like an embarrassement to my son
I am done not living the life I want to live.
I am done being fat.

I don't remember changing from the skinny kid to the chubby kid, it just seemed to happen. The skinny kid was fed a steady diet of soda & donuts for breakfast, fast food for dinner and junk food was anytime and pretty much all that was available. That kid was so skinny that the Dr questioned why. Then I moved in with my grandparents, got regular meat and potato meals and the chub started creeping on, and that chub is some sneaky stuff it continued to sneak on, and on. Then came a job, a boyfriend, a son and more pounds, not chub anymore just plain old obese fat.
I always thought I'll lose weight next year, I'll start eating healthy soon, next year turned into next year, that turned into next year.....
Now the realization has come that the years are passing rapidly and I am floating in limbo making no effort to change my life.
No more excuses and no more next years, every day is another chance to get closer to my goals and I WILL use those days!

    The Aquarian child is some how an isolated only child when growing up and therefore gets lots of attention from adults. She becomes a "free thinker" and is very smart. She really isn't made to be a "stay-at-home-mom" as she has so much to give to the world. She makes a good teacher, scientist, or designer as she has new ideas. She loves people and can move from place to place with ease and make new "best friends forever." She gets along with Sagittarius, Libra, Aries, Leo and Gemini. She wouldn't do well with controlling Scorpio as she MUST have her freedom. Her weak areas are the ankles. She isn't cut out to be obese as she needs to move about freely. Denise Austin is a wonderful example of an Aquarian woman. She is turning 56 and still very "young". She's 5'4" and 112# but very strong.

    In Aquarius the Sun is eccentric and original. You're apt to be a superb thinker, and your ideas are frequently advanced, no matter what field of profession you select. Often, your unique approaches to problem solving are viewed as too radical and unworkable, but you prefer to think of them as advanced and progressive instead. Unconventional and outspoken, you see your role as the rebel and the person who rejects worn out traditions and old ways of operating. You like to be with those ushering in the new order and fostering advanced thinking.
    Paradoxically, you're a good team player, but one who must have personal freedom. You don't like to feel fenced in. While you're headstrong and inflexible in your ways, you can work very effectively within a large group. You have complete respect for the sound ideas put forward by others. You are aloof and detached, and your concerns are directed toward society rather than to the problems of any one person. You are somewhat impersonal most of the time. You're more emotionally involved with your work than you are with people. You can be highly critical and demanding in a position of authority. Nonetheless, you are a strong leader and organizer. You have a deep understanding of human nature, but often you lack sensitivity to the emotional content of many situations.

    You thrive on change and managing the unexpected. Always ahead of your time, you are viewed by everyone as being different and unusual, labels you don't mind accepting. You pride yourself on your ability to find a better way of doing the job. Sometimes you lack follow through, and you always dislike routine. You like to take chances and keep everything stirred up. Occasionally, you enjoy antagonizing people in positions of authority, and stimulating a good argument now and then. You don't mind that you are seen as a bit unusual, in fact, you may encourage this image.
    Equality, freedom and fairness are all important issues for you. You strongly subscribe to the doctrine that all people are created equal and should have the same rights and opportunities. In this regard, you are likely to be classified as a progressive and often associated with humanitarian issues and causes. Though you are very involved with such matters, your approach is always somewhat in the abstract, with ideological concepts, the sort that don't usually stem from true emotions. Your approach is often very impersonal and detached.
    Friendly and sociable, you may have a wide circle of acquaintances. Friends are very important to you. Intellectually oriented, you are happiest with friends that share common ideas and interests. Strangely, you find it more difficult to cultivate a truly satisfying intimate relationship. This aloofness exists because feelings are rarely expressed outwardly, and you usually seem distant. You resist anything or anyone threatening your independence.
