Update. I'm going to turn 58 in about two months and I have gained back all the weight I lost before and added some more. I feel awful, sad, worthless, and useless. I hate myself and I figure everyone else does too. I'm going to try again.
I just turned 53 and I refuse to be "the fat woman" anymore. I can't keep watching my weight creep up and just buying bigger clothes.
I am resolute that this is a life change that will stick.
I want to lose 100 pounds in a year. I think that is a reasonable goal. My target is to lose 10 pounds a month. So far, I am on track to do that.
I've been reading some articles and books, including "The Spark". I also read "This is Why You're Fat" by Jackie Warner. I really love her nutrition information but I don't like some of the other things she says. But eating clean is working for me and I plan to make this a FOREVER change.
I'm a native New Yorker, born in Brooklyn and raised on Long Island. I still live here, in Merrick, NY but my heart (and most of my money) is in Vermont, where both of my children go to college. My dream is to move there.
I'm a techie, I love new gadgets. My current favorite toy is my new iPad2. His name is Max. I'm an avid reader, love movies, theater and music. I love to make friends so if you've dropped by, leave a comment and say hello. If you add me as a SparkBuddy, I promise to add you back!

Happy BELATED Birthday, DONE GIRL
The Aries girl wanted to be like her father, so she always takes the lead. Aries must watch for accidents and also for injury to the head. Aries gets along with Leo, Sagittarius, Libra, Gemini and Aquarius.
The symbol for Aries is the Ram, because of the headlong, direct, and assertive nature of the sign. The sign is also symbolized by seeds shooting out of the ground in the springtime, suggesting a time and spirit of renewal.
In Aries, the Sun is highly action oriented. You like to do your thing, and you are opinionated and direct in doing it. Your Aries personality constantly wants to charge ahead, and insists on being the one who organizes, rather than ever allowing yourself to be led or organized by others. You have a hard time recognizing any point of view except your own. Highly action oriented, when an idea strikes you, you are off quickly to carry it out. Yet you are not so good in seeing projects through to a conclusion. Follow-up and finish work are not matters that suit your style. You constantly need new goals, new projects, and new challenges.
You are a quick learner and a self-starter; enthusiastic and curious. The main challenge for an Aries Sun sign native is the control of impulses. You must avoid scattering forces, for if you can learn to think before taking action, your energetic nature will enable you to do much. Natural impulsiveness and inability to listen to the advice of others sometimes involves you in difficulties. To succeed, you must learn to think everything through carefully before you proceed. Patience and the ability to plan are areas in which you may have to apply extra effort. You must reflect on the total effect of your actions to grow and progress in life.
You may have a sharp temper and a quick fuse as Aries is ruled by Mars, the planet associated with war and combat. Fortunately, you get over anger as quickly as it comes, and you never hold a grudge. You are neither devious nor subtle in your actions. Many Aries Sun natives are down right blunt. Only with concentration and attention can you ever acquire much diplomacy and tact.
With your natural Aries inclinations, you have a true adventurer's or pioneer's spirit; a longing for independence and a tendency to fancy yourself as a free soul. Born to lead, but not born to handle the mundane responsibility or bureaucratic red tape. When faced with complex details, you become very frustrated. Fully matured, your Aries spirit aspires to a gallant "never say die" attitude, and a willingness to take advantage of each new opportunity that comes along.
