Hi guys, my name is Lauren and I'm 28 years old. For as long as I can remember, I have gained and lost and gained and lost and gained and lost again. On my own I have lost 15 pounds but have way more to go, and this time I am pledging to take the steps needed to lose the weight - as long as it takes - and KEEP IT OFF!! I'm here to be with like-minded people with similar goals. I would like to be a support and motivator to anyone that I can and to also be encouraged and motivated myself!!

7/15/10: Finally broke away from the horrible 200# number and broke a plateau. Will NEVER see that number on the scale AGAIN!
9/15/10: Helloooo 180's!! After seeing you for a moment around my birthday, I took a little hiatus from being healthy but re-focused and I'm back to you again! Goodbye 190's, we spent a long time together and I am happy to be DONE with you forever :)
9/15/10: Have officially lost over 25 pounds and more than halfway to my initial goal.. so exciting!!

    The symbol for Leo is the Lion, and most Leo natives display many of the regal traits of the king of beasts. The Leo woman loves to be noticed so being fat isn't for her, since she never ever wants anyone to think less of her. (Martha Stewart is a wonderful Leo example.) The Leo woman loves children but seldom has many of her own. She does well with Libra, Aries, Sagittarius, Aquarius, and Gemini. She should avoid Scorpio as this man is much to secretive for her open, honest nature and he must run any relationship he is in and she won't be happy with that kind of control. The "Queen" wants to have her say. Leo rules the heart and spine, so she should watch for back problems.
    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.
