I have a wonderful husband who I've been married to for 6years, a beautiful 6 year old daughter. I am about to graduate with my associates degree and start the University of Illinois School of Social Work and I work a full time job. My life is very stressful but I wouldn't change anything about it. I have finally realized it's time to make a change and it's time to put me first for once.

UPDATE 4/1/2014
A lot has happened in the last year. My dad passed away unexpectedly, I had major back surgery, and I'm about to graduate and move onto the University of Illinois. It has taken me a lot of excuses and ups and downs to finally realize that I am worth losing this weight. I lost 30 pounds (half of my first goal) and then became and emotional eater and gained it all back. So here I am again, looking for friends and motivators to do this journey with when I start back at my original weight of 242. This time next year I hope to be at my goal weight of 142 and I am hoping to run a 5k and 10k next year.

Update 10/1/15
A lot has happened since my last update! I have now been married over 7 years and now have a 6 (almost 7) year old daughter. I have graduated with my associates and now am at the University of Illinois School of Social Work. I am in my senior year and will start my internship in January. I will be graduating in may 2016 with my Bachelors and hoping to go to graduate school starting next fall (2016). I just got a new job at Carle Foundation Hospital, which has always been my dream employer. Once I graduate I hope I can get my dream job as a medical Social Worker at Carle. I have gained about 10 pound, so I am now starting at 252. I am hoping to finish the year losing 25-30 pounds.

    The symbol for Leo is the Lion, and most Leo natives display many of regal traits of the king of beasts. Leo loves children and makes a good teacher, but she seldom has many children of her own.
    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.
    Leo gets along well with another Leo as they can share "royal" duties. Also, Aries, Sagittarius, Gemini, Libra and sometimes Aquarius who is their opposite. They should avoid Scorpio who is secretive and jealous which doesn't work well for the Leo who is open and honest and loves having friends. Leo's health issues are the spine and the heart. emoticon
