Hello everyone --welcome to my page.
I rarely check this page anymore. Maybe I just am too busy, who knows. If you are on facebook, check out our fb page

Welcome new friends --I added a bunch of new teams. I got bored with some of my old ones. I hope to keep up. I read a lot of the digests, and chit chat when I have time. Feel free to add me as your new BFF -I always need a few new friends.

@}-,-`- I picked a rose just for you!

I am blogging when I can -I get bored with blogging.
Find me on facebook if you wanna chat: sandraspeaks

You know if I can get a master's degree, I should be able to conquer weightloss. You would think it would be that easy--not!

Here's my info: I'm 43, mom of 2 kids & 3 dogs, live in WI, and I am a crafter.

I joined Spark to try to have focus and a few friends to motivate me to loose weight. Even if I only lost 1 pounds a week, I could still accomplish my goal. I have PCOS, and chronic fatigue which keeps me less than interested in exercising.

I'm always looking for new friends --add me to your list.
I hope I can inspire you on your weightloss journey as well as find my own path to living a healthier life.

Currently working on losing 100 pounds in 100 weeks.
CW --sadly I have no results to report at this time. :(

Goal is to lose 8.333 pounds a month

I have discovered a new snack food --celery. Actually, I really love it. Now if only I could stop drinking soda.

Member Since: 7/28/2008

My Goals:
My goal is to give up soda. I think doing this one thing would be the easiest way to loose weight -although I am addicted.

My Program:
Challenge --lose 100 pounds in a year. It's about 8.333 pounds a month.
Join me in the team called: Life Tidbits

Personal Information:
I thought a list would be easiest to explain me. I am a wife, mother, sister, auntie, and friend. Other words that describe me: college educated, wannabee author, quilter, pogo gamer, crafter, Christian, nonfiction bookreader, thrift shopper, singer, poet, Avon lady, homeschooling mom, girl scout leader, proud Mama via adoption, gardener, and more. I stay very busy, but I enjoy the hobbies and career choices I have made in my life.

I'd rather spend time with my hubby, brother, kids and dog than just about anyone else in the world. Family is VERY important to me.

Interests: I like to quilt, write poetry, shop, pray, play pogo games online, spend time with my hubby and kids, and go to flea markets.

    The Virgo girl is born to a mother who isn't happy with the money the father makes, so the child grows up in a family with a critical parent, so she learns to be critical especially of herself. The father is a good man but rather passive so the shy little Virgo child goes inward for quiet as she doesn't like over-stimulation. She learns to be frugal as money has always been a worry in the home. She doesn't want to be criticized so she works hard to always be ready so she isn't found unprepared. This leads to a lot of stress for the Highly Sensitive Person. Virgo needs alone time and rest. Virgo works well behind the scene helping others look good
    Virgo gets along with Pisces, Cancer, Capricorn, taurus and Scorpio, but when a relationship goes bad she will walk out and not look back as she is very capable of living on her own. She often finds a man who is the "bad boy" so she can try to improve or change him, but that doesn't work since he finds her a "nag". She is better off staying with intellectual men who want to be a success and finding one she can help get to the top.
    Weight can be an issue for her as she can turn to sweets for comfort, but her sign rules the Sixth House of Health, so she makes a good nurse caring for others. She LOVES to show others the right way to live, so she can be a health coach.
    The symbol for Virgo is the Virgin, denoting the puritanical demeanor usually common to those of this sign.
    In Virgo the Sun is orderly and thoughtful. With the Sun in Virgo you are predisposed to be hardworking, conscientious, and well-organized. Modest, discriminating and thorough, everything you do, you do well. Practical and down to earth, you are a diligent worker with a competent, discriminating intellect. You are highly analytical and exacting, especially adapted to handling projects with painstaking perfection. Thus, you are fond of good workmanship and the utmost in quality. You are dependable because your approach is always one based on common sense and a realistic and analytical assessment of the problem.
    You give much attention to detail, but you can carry this to extremes, becoming fussy and critical, sometimes interfering. Large-scale projects can overwhelm you because of your insistence on perfection. Unless you can deliver such quality, you may become frustrated and discouraged. There is always the tendency and danger with Virgo that the big picture idea will be missed in search of minute details. You expect yourself and everyone around you to be perfect, often setting yourself up for disappointment. Your outlook is too negative and picky sometimes.

    Modest and unassuming, you are usually content to live in the background. Your attitude, at times, can become puritanical and prudish. You consider yourself an ordinary person, and you are never given to any airs of pretentiousness or showing off. There may be a tendency for you to see your role as one of service and "behind the scenes" support activity.

    You have a serious attitude toward refining your mind and acquiring knowledge. With your highly varied interests, you can gain a remarkable amount of data about different subjects. You instinctively know that you must grasp all parts before you can fully understand the whole. Systematizing and detail organization are your strengths. You are idealistic, but always practical and reasonable. You're not likely to make general statements based on too few facts.
    You may be somewhat health conscious, for you have an instinctive sense of balance in diet. You're very sensible in taking care of your health, and for that matter, the health of others. Often, the Virgo becomes exceptionally neat and orderly, even a bit neurotic about cleanliness. You're likely to be susceptible to stress related problems because you do tend to worry too much.
