I've been overweight most of my life and i'm so sick of it! I have back problems, so it makes it hard for me to walk, jump, run etc. But i'm determined to find other exercises to get me to my goal weight. I'm hoping the back pain will lessen when I weigh less also.
This time it's not about IF i get to that weight, it's WHEN!

I had my first son 2/5/11, and was able to get off all the weight i gained from the pregnancy within 6 months. In January 2012, I decided to give up my "friend" of 14 years... SMOKING!! I was a 1 1/2 packs a day smoker, and quit cold turkey after reading " The Easy Way to quit smoking" by Allen Carr. I would love to blame my weight gain on quitting smoking, but quitting did not make me eat the awful food choices that i had made. I am SOOOOOOOO proud of myself for finally being smoke free, and i know that if i can quit that, i can achieve any goals!

    In Aries, the Sun is highly action oriented. You like to do your thing, and you are opinionated and direct in doing it. Your Aries personality constantly wants to charge ahead, and insists on being the one who organizes, rather than ever allowing yourself to be led or organized by others. You have a hard time recognizing any point of view except your own. Highly action oriented, when an idea strikes you, you are off quickly to carry it out. Yet you are not so good in seeing projects through to a conclusion. Follow-up and finish work are not matters that suit your style. You constantly need new goals, new projects, and new challenges.
    You are a quick learner and a self-starter; enthusiastic and curious. The main challenge for an Aries Sun sign native is the control of impulses. You must avoid scattering forces, for if you can learn to think before taking action, your energetic nature will enable you to do much. Natural impulsiveness and inability to listen to the advice of others sometimes involves you in difficulties. To succeed, you must learn to think everything through carefully before you proceed. Patience and the ability to plan are areas in which you may have to apply extra effort. You must reflect on the total effect of your actions to grow and progress in life.
    You may have a sharp temper and a quick fuse as Aries is ruled by Mars, the planet associated with war and combat. Fortunately, you get over anger as quickly as it comes, and you never hold a grudge. You are neither devious nor subtle in your actions. Many Aries Sun natives are down right blunt. Only with concentration and attention can you ever acquire much diplomacy and tact.
    With your natural Aries inclinations, you have a true adventurer's or pioneer's spirit; a longing for independence and a tendency to fancy yourself as a free soul. Born to lead, but not born to handle the mundane responsibility or bureaucratic red tape. When faced with complex details, you become very frustrated. Fully matured, your Aries spirit aspires to a gallant "never say die" attitude, and a willingness to take advantage of each new opportunity that comes along.
    Aries is a warrior and makes a good military person. Aries is an athlete at heart.
