I have been on this journey before. I lost a little over 60 pounds more than a year ago. I was so excited! So many people noticed, and it felt awesome. Then things changed. I cannot pinpoint exactly what it was, but I knew something was different. My moods were hard to control..happy one minute, crying the next. So, I was prescribed what I like to call my "happy pills". And those little things have made my moods better, but I also gained back all the weight I had previously lost, plus a few more pounds.

I am looking forward to starting a new job right after the first of 2010. I am hoping that it will help me refocus, and get me back on my journey.

Personal Information:
Updated: 12/31/2009.

My name is Samantha, and I am a working mother of two little boys. I have worked in an elementary school since October 2006, and as much as I absolutely love working with children, I have found a job that I believe will help me and my family become more secure. Although I will miss many of the children I have worked with the past 3 years, I believe this new job will bring greater things for me and my family.

Other Information:
I love 'CSI: Miami' and both 'NCIS' and 'NCIS: Los Angeles'. If there is ever a marathon of 'Criminal Minds' on, I am probably glued to the TV.

    Happy Birthday to You!!

    Born today, October 27, you are likely to be a bold and boisterous youth -- boys very probably pugnacious, girls rather aggressive in character -- but this is likely to translate into an ambitious, go-getter kind of approach to life that is almost certain to win you, if not remarkable success, at least remarkable notoriety. Once you reach maturity, you will be the kind to grab hold of any opportunity with such enthusiasm and resolve that you are certain to transform it into pure gold -- provided, of course, that the stars are aligned correctly and favor your progress, for nothing, of course, is guaranteed.

    It may surprise you to learn that your single greatest opportunity is one that may come to you very much by accident, as a matter of fate, luck or even a kind of mischance -- and while it may not appear to be something you want, in the end it can prove your defining moment.

    Today’s Scorpio Horoscope: Are you really willing to do what you said you'll do? Now's the time to be true to yourself!

    You share a birthday with: Kelly Osbourne, reality TV personality; Jayne Kennedy, actress and sportscaster; Carrie Snodgress, actress; John Cleese, actor and comedian; Roy Lichtenstein, pop artist; Nanette Fabray, actress; Dylan Thomas, poet; Emily Post, etiquette expert; Theodore Roosevelt, U.S. president; Captain James Cook, explorer.

    Hope your day is wonderful!

    Scorpio is a great sign for a woman to be since it is "Fixed" water. Fixed means it is an unchanging sign and therefore, Scorpio who lives for extremes must get to the bottom and begin again in a "Death and Rebirth" fashion if she wants to change her life. Scorpio rules the 8th House of sex and death and both of them are entwined. She can certainly have a problem with being obese as she can turn in secret to food for comfort when her emotions betray her.
    The Scorpio child is born to a father who for whatever reason didn't want the child, even though this may never be spoken out loud in the family, but the overly sensitive Scorpio child picks up on this very early on and learns to be suspicious of everyone. She always asks "What do they want from me and what is in this for me?" In any relationship, therefore, Scorpio MUST be in control, since her childhood relationship didn't give her a since of security that she wanted. JEALOUSY is her biggest weapon and she will get revenge no matter how long it takes if she feels she has been done wrong. Sex for her is power and she will use it to get what she wants. She can be very religious if it serves her needs, but SHE comes first. She often must provide for the family and she can be "The Little Red Hen." She gets along best with a Pisces who understands her sensitive nature and loves fantasy, a Virgo who will let her rule, a Cancer, a Capricorn and sometimes with her opposite Taurus. She should avoid the Libra or Sagittarius man since both have and want too much freedom.

    Like the other water signs, this sign is very sensitive 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. Scorpio does best working for herself as her own boss.
    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.
