I've been overweight all my life I think. I've always been conscious of it but now I can no longer be in denial about my weight. I can feel it and see it and I dont like it. I have to admit, I have little faith but I guess some is better than none.

I've been dieting and trying to overcome weight problems since I was a child. I can remember weighing 160lbs in middle school and being completely mortified at being heavier than all my other classmates.

The interesting thing is that although I was an overeater as a child, Im not much of an eater in my adult life. Since I've started keeping track of my caloric intake I've realized that I'm simply consuming too many calories and not exercising.

Im not calling this a diet because I don't want to get caught up in all the "hoopla" associated with it. I'm just becoming conscious of what I'm eating which in turn has caused me to make better choices and therefore I'm starting to lose weight.

*~*Words of Wisdom*~*

JUST THROW OUT THAT CAKE ALREADY!! Seriously, I do the same thing with left-overs in the frig! For me, I feel "obligated" to finish them off so that they don't go to "waste." Slowly, I'm re-training my brain- I ask myself- would I rather "waste" it to the trash or "waste" it to my waist?!----ZOOKEEPER9996

"It's easy to say you're too tired, too stressed, too busy, too this or too that. Too bad. The only way you'll strip away the fat is to start by stripping away the excuses." -- Dr. Oz & Dr. Roizen- "You on A Diet"

Hopefully you can tell from my pictures that I like makeup lol. Well actually Im a freelance makeup artist and aspiring Clinical Psychologist. When I put my makeup on it makes me feel better about my weight because I have something else to focus on I guess, but when I take it off my dillusions of grandeur come to a screeching halt :( I want to love how I look with or without makeup...Im tired of using makeup to make me feel pretty about my image.

    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.
