Hello there!!! My name is Yashica and I am 28 years old. I have recently graduated with my masters (May 10, 2008) from North Carolina A&T State University. I am working on my PhD in Electrical Engineering and this is my fifth semester. I was born and raised in Shorter, AL.

I have always been a "big girl" and have been healthy (Gladly, I am 6'0 tall). But I moved two years ago and my new doctor told me that I needed to lose weight if I wanted to see my Grand Kids grow up. But he suggested that I have Surgery and I told him that would not be an option! Both of my grandmothers have High Blood Pressure and one is a diabetic. So I am working on changing my life style to a healthier and a more active one.

Well I don't have kids but I want to have about three (I probably will not get started until I am 30! I have to get my PhD- I know I still have 1.5 years! LOL!!), but I know that I have to lose this weight in order to have kids and be healthy while carrying them.

I have been gone for a while and I am trying to get back on track. I pray that I can stay motivated!

I am currently with the love of my life! (We will call him Mr. B) We are getting married on June 25, 2011!!! Very Exciting!!

    Happy Birthday to You!!

    Born today (Jan. 28), you have a way of satisfying your own needs while at the same time addressing the needs of others, of solving the problems that arise in your own life while solving the problems of others, and of enjoying your own success while promoting the success of others. You have an artistic sensibility, but you know how to live and work in the world -- not separate from it; indeed, you are far more sociable than many who share your talents, interests and aspirations -- and you are rarely if ever motivated by selfish concerns.

    You are capable of reaching those around you in many ways, and they will respond to you no matter which you employ. You are a true and loyal friend; indeed, your childhood friends are likely to be your friends for life, and you never let time or distance diminish the importance of your friendships.

    Today’s Aquarius Horoscope: You may not fully appreciate the gravity of a certain situation, but when your jokes fall flat, you'll begin to get the idea.

    Hope your day is wonderful!

    How's school going? I know it can be hard to manage school, work, family, and weight loss. But know that together we can do this! I am working on a master's in special education and working as a tutoring for a private school. I am determined to make all my dreams come true!

    I'd love to see you more active in our chat thread. That is, if you have the time. I definitely know how that can be.

    Happy wedding planning, and good luck on your journey to better health!
