Looking for the support to walk the journey of Life !!!

Hi - My name is Mellissa. I am 46 years old, and the Mother of 2. I have been married for 27 years, to a wonderful man.

Unfortunately, I have struggled with my weight, all of my married life. As well, I have struggled with depression & seriously LOW self-esteem.

I have spent my whole life trying to please everyone else. It is like I always need everyone's approval. In the process of trying to always please everyone else, I have let myself slip into a cocoon, where I now find it very hard to show my true emotions.

I am very self-conscious of my weight & appearance, and always feel like I am - where I shouldn't be.

Over the past 5 years I have been attending WW on & off. My first attempt went very well - I lost 60 lbs. and was looking and feeling better than I had in years.Unfortunately, I have not been able to maintain that loss. I have gained that back and more!! My subsequent attempts have not been near as successful.

I tend to let my emotions rule my life - I really want to become a strong person and be able to stand up for myself & quit letting things get to me so easily, and to quit putting everyone & everything before me..

I am now starting to realize that I need to start pleasing ME First, & the others afterwards. It is probably one of the hardest challenges I have faced in a really long time.

I want to lose my excess weight so that I can start to feel good about myself again. I am hoping that with the loss of the weight I can learn to have more self confidence & become a more outgoing "happy" person. Maybe I have this wrong - Maybe if I could learn to have more self confidence & become a more outgoing "happy" person - I would lose the weight.

Which ever way - I Just want to be happy & healthy again!!!

I am looking for support to help me walk this journey, & I feel like SP is going to be a place I can find that support.

As of today I am recommitting myself to WW & to MYSELF - I know for me - it has worked in the past - I just need to recommit

I have to do this - I can do this - I want to do this & I Will do this.

    The Cancer girl is "the Mother" as she seems to "mother" everyone from the day she is born. She can have a weight problem, since she loves food and to feed others. Her health issues can be about the breast. She gets along with Scorpio, Virgo, Pisces, Taurus, and another Cancer. She makes a great decorator, chef, or caregiver.

    In Cancer the Sun is receptive and moody. You are a very sensitive person who is easily influenced by your environment. You are likely to be exceedingly protective of your feelings, as well as the feelings of those to whom you are close. Emotions are strong in your nature. You approach life with many feelings and a strong nurturing tendency. Your moods are varied and changeable. They are synchronized to the Moon, flowing in and out like the tide. You are acutely aware of the atmosphere of feelings surrounding you. You're skeptical and distrustful of people. It's not what they say, but simply the way they say it and the way you interpret their meaning.
    You need to tell your deepest thoughts. When those around you are not receptive, you can become quite difficult to reach. The "crabby" part of Cancer shows up once in awhile, as well. When these moods are in control of your behavior, you can snap someone's head off for no reason at all. People you live around have to learn that you are not really angry with them. This is just the way Moon children are sometimes. By nature you are quiet and somewhat reserved, frequently retreating or putting up a protective barrier when you feel in any way threatened.
    You are attuned to the past. You tend to cling to reminders and memorabilia of your family and of earlier times. Many Cancers are attracted to collecting antiques. You may be one of those people who collects just about everything. It's hard for you to part with something when there may be a chance need some rainy day, no matter how remote that chance may be. Cancers are the original "pack-rats."
    You place much importance on the home and family. Your family or your "family of friends" is the center of your life. They provide you your sense of security and belonging. Your role in this environment is the source of your self-esteem and often overshadow your sense of individuality. It's hard to break away from your early upbringing and depart from the family traditions you have experienced. Cancer is the sign of motherhood. In both sexes, it produces a parenting instinct that is caring, protective, and indulging. Even unmarried Cancers adopt friends, co-workers, and neighbors in an extended family situation.

    Hardworking and dedicated, you make an excellent employee. You are loyal and respect authority. This makes you supportive and protective of the boss and rarely questioning company policy. You do find it very difficult to handle change and disruption. If you are the boss, you like your employees to be dedicated as you are. Unfortunately, sometimes you may surround yourself with "yes men" who simply reinforce your decisions. You don't take chances or risk sweeping change.
    Money is very important to you. Not for what it will buy or for the freedom it provides, but for the sense of security it provides. No matter what else is to be said of Cancer, security and having the protective shell in place, is overriding. emoticon
