Becoming the person I'm meant to be

Hey! :) My name is Sara and I''m 25. I am a college student at the moment, I have an AAS in Marketing and a BS in Psychology. Currently, I''''m working toward my MS in Marriage and Family Therapy. I''''ve been overweight my entire life, I don''''t know a time when I was in a healthy weight range for my age. In high school, I tried to lose weight but I just wasn''''t 100% serious about it then. And then in 2011, it finally hit me. I weighed in at 315 lbs, about 155 lbs more than I should ...
Hey! :) My name is Sara and I''m 25. I am a college student at the moment, I have an AAS in Marketing and a BS in Psychology. Currently, I''''m working toward my MS in Marriage and Family Therapy. I''''ve been overweight my entire life, I don''''t know a time when I was in a healthy weight range for my age. In high school, I tried to lose weight but I just wasn''''t 100% serious about it then. And then in 2011, it finally hit me. I weighed in at 315 lbs, about 155 lbs more than I should be. My size 24 pants were starting to get a little tight and that was really my turning point. So now I''''m done. Done being obese. Done having to buy clothing in a special store or section. Done being the fat girl. Done hating how I look. Done with everything negative. I can do this! And this time I won''''t give up. Other than my weight, I am absolutely loving life. I have a great family, friends and church who support me in everything. Having fun and laughing is a big part of my life, it keeps me in my regular happy and upbeat mood. :) I love spark friends and talking to people, so feel free! :) ~Sara~

emoticon Happy Belated Birthday, DONE GIRL

The symbol for Leo is the Lion, and most Leo natives display many of regal traits of the king of beasts. Leo loves children and makes a good teacher, but she seldom has many children of her own.
In Leo, the Sun is magnetic, forceful, and dominate. You possess a good nature that is very generous, allowing you to attract many friends and followers. You can easily become a natural leader because of your demeanor and because you are ambitious, determined, and highly industrious. Self-assurance and dignity are very strong in your nature. Your magnetic personality lets you sell yourself or your ideas easily, and your persistence at doing so further enhances your leadership potential. You are at your best when placed in charge of a large scheme, for you are truly a fine organizer. You enjoy being in a position of authority because you know you were born to rule. Your sunny disposition allows you to be candid, outspoken, and very direct in all matters, without upsetting people. You possess natural leadership ability, and project such confidence and authority that you inspire others to follow you.
The typical Leo is a natural showman, and delights in having a full measure of recognition and admiration. Leo is the most expressive sign in the zodiac. You love to show off. You probably see your role in life as the starring role. Often the Leo personality chooses some artistic form through which to express talent. There is much drama associated with Leo, and the general approach to life is full of emotional exuberance. If you are not careful, these traits can result in too large an ego, which in turn can make you very susceptible to flattery. Though you have a high opinion of yourself, you still need the approbation and appreciation of your friends and followers. Your ego needs constant reinforcement. This helps keep the spotlight focused on your activities.
Naturally emotionally exuberant, you are not only a good actor, but you make a truly outstanding teacher, as well. The Leo association with the fifth house of the chart suggests a strong bond with children. You may consider your children to be expressions of your creativity. Typically, the Leo is very close to children, the loving benefactor and protector.
The lordly Leo sometimes feels there should be an automatic granting of power and authority. Because of this, you may be one of those Leo types who doesn't feel the need to work your way to the top. Though in many ways you show that you are ambitious, you also can be lazy. You may only want to work at jobs that offer prestige, glamour, power or a good time. You exert yourself only in those situations were you can exhibit your star quality, and garner the attention and respect of others.
Your gift is surely the ability that you naturally possess to lead and to inspire. You are at home on the stage or at the podium. Your poorest showing comes when you are unable to control your ego, and you let an exaggerated sense of your own importance get the upper hand. In spite of your self-assurance and dignity, you may have a degree of concern about being laughed at or disgraced in some way. Again, ego is at the base of your nature and being.
Leo gets along well with another Leo as they can share "royal" duties. Also, Aries, Sagittarius, Gemini, Libra and sometimes Aquarius who is their opposite. They should avoid Scorpio who is secretive and jealous which doesn't work well for the Leo who is open and honest and loves having friends. Leo's health issues are the spine and the heart. emoticon
