Well of course I am back...I will never....ever...ever....give up. So I finally graduated with my BS in Elementary Education. That was one goal I had before I turned 51. I finally found an answer to why I am not able to lose weight. I am now getting the help I need to be healthier. So very hopeful and encouraged now.

Member Since: 1/24/2009

Fitness Minutes: 11,599

My Goals:
I want to get healthier. I want to lose weight. It would be so awesome to look great in what I choose what to wear, instead of my body choosing what I wear. I also would love my kids and husband to live healthier and of course that falls on me to teach them and support them.

My Program:
Stay motivated--EXERCISE
Eat more fruits and veggies
Drink 8 glasses of water daily
Limit sugar and starch intake
Eat more protein
Oh and did I mention EXERCISE =0)

Personal Information:
We are still trying to become a blended family. We have had our share (as everyone else) of challenges. We are still having them and frankly I am not sure if we will conquer them. I hope.
When kids are at the other parents we love to ride our motorcycle.

Other Information:
Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.
Louisa May Alcott, author

"If you want the rainbow you have to put up with the rain"

"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass you by. It's learning to dance in the rain."

"It's easy to say you're too tired, too stressed, too busy, too this or too that. Too bad. The only way you'll strip away the fat is to start by stripping away the excuses."

I will not quit. I will not allow my hopes and dreams to be pushed aside.

    The symbol for Cancer is the Crab, with its protective shell. People with this Sun sign are sometimes also called "Moon Children," because the Moon is the ruler of the sign.
    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.
