This is it. Last time I am going to try to lose weight. This is my year to finally start this journey to the new healthier me and not give up after a month or so. The last several years have been rough and stressful on me but things are finally starting to turn around. I am back in Houston now....I lived here for a short while last year but left for Livingston to stay with my parents from August until March of this year. I am currently unemployed with no car so I have NO excuses to not focus on me now and make poor decisions. My apartment complex has a nice little fitness center within a short walking distance and I have a couple of dvds I like to work out to. No more of saying I am too tired to work out or too tired to cook and run thru drive thru for the millionth time. I know that my weight is not going to shed over night so it will take time to lose what weight I have put on. I am learning to take things 1 day at at time and not getting depressed when I weigh in and the scale doesn't show decrease. I love SparkPeople because it helps me to stay motivated and keep a new and better perspective on things.

I am done with:
-being the fat girl
-being a couch potato
-making excuses
-not being happy
-being unhealthy
-not liking who I see in the mirror
-not having a lot of energy
-not having a lot of confidence
-being single because I am unhealthy and overweight
-being out of breath going up the stairs esp to my apt
-all negativity
-not loving myself enough to take care of it

Also becoming consistent with working out and staying involved on SP.

    The Capricorn child has to be old when young as she takes on a lot of responsibility and can't be "just a child." She isn't meant to be obese as an adult as she cares much to much about what others think of her image. (Dolly Parton is a great example. She loves to look her best. She was the fifth child in a family of 12 and her four older brothers did NOTHING in the house. Dolly raised seven younger siblings before she left home to "work" at 18.)
    No one has more willpower and ability to stay and finish a job than Capricorn.
    Health issues are around the knees and having headaches.
    Capricorn gets along with Virgo, Taurus, Cancer, and Pisces. She will find controlling Scorpio to be to critical.

    No one has more willpower than you to succeed. YOU run your life and what you accomplish or don't is all of your making.
    Capricorn-Aquarius Cusp is anything but dull. They may be flamboyant and exciting. Even those born in this sign that seem quiet and unassuming have a vivid dream and fantasy lifeā€¦ 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.
