Well howdy all Im tudie and I have been off and on this site for almost 2 years..

I have been fighting being overweight for a lifetime like so many others. When I started at SP 2 years ago in May I had orriginally weighed 310lbs.. So tecnically I have lost 47lbs.. But I dont count the weight at my first try for this one, because I lost weight but I wasnt trying to or eating healthy.. Its in the past and its time to start fresh and new.. my starting weight this time Is 280lbs!!

I have never been the one that constantly worries about it. I have always been confident with who I am.. I just want to be healthy..
And with my other problems I am tiard of being so tiard, and out of shape.. I just want to be able to see my feet again...lol I have been wondering what kinda shoes I bought myself last time...lol

I think I have realistic goals and want to give it, not just my best shot.. I want to be committed to this.. but I think I get lazy sometimes, being overweight seems to be a whole body mind experiance.. I am tiard of lookin in the mirror and not liking what I see...

So here I am doing my thing, I came to the realization that all movement no matter how small counts in the end.. Our bodies are designed for movement... So if you do anything that you dont normally do.. It counts... Turn the radio on when you cook dinner or wash dishes... and Dance... Just being alive is worth dancing for....

I know there are some of us starting our journey out there that cant move much because of health reasons..... Move in the chair.. lift your arms..up and down.. Kick your legs up.... stand up sit down... every little thing counts.... Look at it this way... Its something you didnt do yesturday... Today is the day...
And believe it or not housework counts too.. here is an article.. about it

Other Information:
God is..
The joy felt when you hear a child's first tears....
He is the music in the laughter of a child in grandma's ears,
even after many tears have gone by,
How joyous that laughter,
as it dances across our minds.
The innocence of love's first kiss....
The sorrow of loves last journey, the tears of its final goodby.
God is the wind that blows life accross our eyes...
He is the light of truth that blinds us sometimes...
God is the wonder when you look to the stars,
He is the awe of realising just how small we are.
God was on the mountain as you ascended there,
although you wondered where you'd find the air....
He wispers softly in the morning breeze.
Grasping your heart softly,
making your fear release...

God is Patience, he is grace, he is the humility that we all must face.

    The Scorpio child is born to a father who didn't want a child, for whatever reason & this might never have been discussed in the home, but the sensitive little Scorpio child, who hates loud noises & over-stimulation, picks up on this & learns to not trust others. She is always asking herself "what do they want from me & what is in this for me?" She uses sarcastic comments to "get them first" since she is such an emotional person. This can certainly lead her to having a problem with obesity as food can be her "drug of choice".
    Scorpio gets along with Pisces, Cancer, Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn. BUT, since Scorpio is insecure she MUST be in control of any relationship she is in and this can be difficult for others to take. IF she is sure she has a faithful partner, she will give all she has to a relationship.
    Often, Scorpio supports the family. She does well working alone as she is NOT a "team player". She does well working in police work, as a detective, inspector, under-taker, or a businesswoman.

    Scorpio never has an easy life as she is always in a struggle, but ever decision she makes is her own & she has no one to blame for her situation since she made it by her own chose. Scorpio is a natural athlete, so she doesn't have to be fat. She can make herself anything she wants as she can stay with and finish what she starts. She is never a victim as she rules her own life no matter how simple it is.

    Like the other water signs, this sign is very sensitive and emotional. With Scorpio, unlike the water signs Cancer and Pisces, the emotions remain under rigid control. They may not even be apparent to those who are very close to you. When your emotions do erupt, they do so very violently, often with a strong burst of sarcasm and vindictiveness.
    The strength of Scorpio is in the methods employed to meet every challenge. You approach everything with intensity and passion. Nothing is ever halfway because you put everything you have in your work; mind, heart, soul. You are one of those people who always gives 100% and sometimes more. Many born under the sign Scorpio become classic workaholics.
    You may have an undesirable trait commonly found in the Scorpio person, holding a grudge for a very long time. The underside of Scorpio is often possessed with uncontrollable jealousies and the strongest passions. When offended the reaction is surely revenge. The higher side of Scorpio still dominates people and situations, but with much for the common good. This sign produces very few lukewarm people. You are either very bad or very good.
    In Scorpio, the Sun is intense, skeptical and secretive. There is an intensity and a secretiveness in your makeup which results in an inscrutable persona most people cannot penetrate. This trait makes the Scorpio personality hard to detect. You like to remain incognito, and do so with your very secretive nature. You are a master at hiding your emotions. You neither flinch nor blush. It's hard for you to share your inner feelings with anyone.
    You can be very critical and demanding, creating a forceful and dominating demeanor. You are strong-willed and determined, and you usually act with incisiveness. Your critical nature allows you to make shrewd and unusually accurate judgments at a rapid rate. You can penetrate the hidden agenda of those you meet. It is in your nature to protect yourself by knowing what your opponents are thinking and doing. You have uncanny intuition and accurate perceptions, making you almost psychic in understanding and making emotional connections with other people. Very few successfully earn your trust. Often, you experience difficulties with the authority figures in your life.
    At home, you may be something of a tyrant, wanting everything done your way. You think you are always right and won't tolerate dissent. There is a tendency for you to impose your will on friends and family since you feel so passionately that your ideas are in their best interest. No one takes relationships more serious than you. Although you are highly attracted to, and attractive to, the opposite sex, in many respects you function well as a 'lone wolf' type. emoticon
