Making Changes for Myself

Welcome to my little area on SparkPeople. My name is Heather. I am a 33 year old mom of 3 wonderful children, I have an awesome husband, and I am a student working on my degree in Psychology.

I have been have been overweight all of my life. I'm a southern girl, and growing up, everything was fried, and we always had to clean our plates, no matter how full we were.

Welcome to my little area on SparkPeople. My name is Heather. I am a 33 year old mom of 3 wonderful children, I have an awesome husband, and I am a student working on my degree in Psychology.

I have been have been overweight all of my life. I'm a southern girl, and growing up, everything was fried, and we always had to clean our plates, no matter how full we were.

Last April/May my weight sky-rocketed to the wonderful 330lbs. Through the summer, I was doing really well, I had lost close to 50lbs. Well, once the holidays hit (especially around Thanksgiving) I started eating and eating, and couldn't stop. It continued through January, and is still going on. I can't seem to stop this eating, so I am here hoping for support from everyone, and also supporting you!

One day at a time... That's how I am going to do this. I have to remember that its for ME first, because I have to get my mind right, and show my kids and the rest of my family that I can do this.

UPDATE as of 6/25/2013:
I am back up to 330lbs. I am not happy about that. I am still having a problem getting back on track with my weight loss journey. I know that I can do this because I have proven it to myself before. I just really need to focus on what myself and what I need to do, because sitting on the couch and feeling sorry for myself, I have to get up and start working out and eating better.

Capricorn-Aquarius Cusp is anything but dull. They may be flamboyant and exciting. Health issues can be around the knees and ankles. Even those born in this sign that seem quiet and unassuming have a vivid dream and fantasy life… they just prefer their excitement in private. They may be prone to unusual experiences. They are usually very visual. They may experience vivid dreams that make their waking life dull in comparison. This dream world may become their inspiration for creativity in writing, art or other endeavors.
Capricorn-Aquarius needs to find an outlet for their creativity. They have a deep need to communicate what they experience. They need to learn how to let go of negative criticism and lack of understanding by others. When they find someone who understands their creativity, they will be most happy.
Capricorn-Aquarius are responsible and may be reserved in manner. They can be critical or bossy, but they want to keep everything to high standards and succeed. They may have talents that are both creative and scientific. They may be driven to change things for the better.
Capricorn-Aquarius enjoys healthy competition. They like to be social, and love a good intellectual discussion. They can set goals for themselves and keep their nose to the grindstone until they achieve what they want. This ambition gives them a great deal of drive. They can often get away with breaking the rules in order to bring something new to light. They are hard workers and very innovative.
Capricorn-Aquarius must enjoy learning to avoid being thrown out of balance by life's unexpected challenges. If they learn to recognize the benefit even in negative experiences, they will go far. They feel a need for security, but at the same time they relish freedom. They need to find the right balance.
The Cusp of Mystery and Imagination is known to be disciplined, patient, loyal, traditional, ambitious, offbeat, progressive, cautious, practical, friendly, realistic, curious, stable, funny, confident, unique, attractive, competitive and multi-talented. They may also be rebellious, narrow-minded, cold, harsh, depressed, stubborn, secretive, aloof and over-critical.
They are good at business of any kind. They are methodical, exacting and can manage well. Capricorn steadies Aquarius' volatility, while Aquarius lends Capricorn some originality and fun. While Capricorn likes to establish and take stock of things, Aquarius likes to throw them around and see where they fall. They may be great philanthropists, or they may be selfish. They enjoy talking and entertaining.
Individuals born on the Capricorn-Aquarius cusp are proud of their triumphs in social and intellectual circles. They are good at earning a living. They are not so talented at maintaining personal relationships and may suffer difficulties in this area. They can be very perceptive and intuitive if they let themselves develop this talent.
