I've been on SP since Sept 2010. A lot has changed, mostly above my shoulders. SP has taught me things, corrected things I thought I knew and given me a new outlook on life in general. The battle with the weight loss goes on but I am determined to win this one.
I live in South Jersey. I've been widowed 7 years now. My Dad lives next door, my Mom passed away 13 years ago so we're alone together. I don't even know what I'd do without him!
I started seriously to lose weight in 2009. I had lost 50 pounds and was going to the gym regularly when I was struck with an unknown virus which interrupted the weight loss journey. Well it's 5 years later and with the grace of God and lots of PT I'm walking with the assistance of a cane! Fortunately the gym I go to has trainers that are rehab certified. The progress is slow, but it is still progress, and for that I am extremely grateful. I'm out of work on disability until I've recovered enough to perform my job.
I'm blessed with a great group of friends that have been my lifeline and support system. I get my strength and comfort in my church and try to do what I can to help those less fortunate.

Member Since: 9/28/2010

Fitness Minutes: 19,490

My Goals:
Well I'm on a journey to a healthy weight. I'm working on recovering well enough to have greater mobility and lose the knee pain! There are lots of things I want to do and being at a healthy weight would make them both feasable and enjoyable!

My Program:
I'm counting calories and tracking my food daily. I am going to the gym at least two times a week. I have had a trainer at the gym work out a program that I am able to handle and as I get stronger we keep changing it to make it more challenging!

Personal Information:
I live in South Jersey, came back home after living in several other parts of the country. My wonderful, active, 91 year old Dad lives next door. He's still working part time and works out twice a week with a trainer!!!

Other Information:
I'm very active in my church, love to read and spend time with my Dad and my friends.

    Those born under the sign of LEO have much in common with the Lion. Leo loves to be the center of attention. She gets along well with Aries, Sagittarius, Libra, Gemini and sometimes her opposite, Aquarius. She should avoid controlling, secretive Scorpio since she must have truth and openness in any relationship. She loves to spend money, but can make a lot of it. She makes a great teacher as she loves to show others. She has few children, but loves children. She can have problems with her heart and her spine.
    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.
