I can't count the number of times that I've started over. Here I am again. All I can say is I'm glad that I'm willing to keep coming back.

Member Since: 12/13/2006

Fitness Minutes: 15,185

My Goals:
I'd love to get into my healthy BMI range. 145 would put me at the top end of that range. I think that's realistic. Once I get there, I'll fine tune my goal based on how I feel, what I want to accomplish, etc.

My Program:
I had been doing weight watchers, but recently decided that I can count calories as easily as points and not pay anyone a bunch of money to do it. I rely heavily on the support of friends and family to get me through the rough patches! I also am a huge fan of exercise - cardio and toning.

Personal Information:
I live in southern Ohio and I'm currently an administrative assistant for a real estate office. I'm a recently divorced working mom to 2 beautiful daughters. I am more determined than ever to live an emotionally and physically healthy life to show them that as women, we are strong enough to overcome some of the toughest obstacles that life can throw our way. I want to live a healthy, balanced life as an example for my girls.

    In Gemini the Sun is active, restless and changeable. You like plenty of variety in your everyday activities, in your friends, and even in your diet. Your interests are many and diverse--almost anything will attract your attention if only for a brief time. Truly, this is the sign of the jack-of-all-trades. As the story goes, you may find that unless you can develop your powers of perseverance, you may be the master of none. Your varied interests can result in a tendency for you to spread yourself too thin, sometimes failing to follow through on projects you've begun.
    The Gemini child is most often born to a father who is well respected in the community. Gemini is often the baby in the family and thus grows up fast learning to talk early in order to keep up with the older kids. Gemini gets along with Libra, Aquarius, Leo, Aries and Sagittarius.
    Being very curious, you want to know and experience as much as you can. Gemini is the sign of duality. You find it difficult to limit yourself to one job, to one relationship, or one hobby, as you constantly seek variety and mental adventure. You scatter your energies because you don't want to miss anything. You are a lifelong student, never tiring of learning new subjects. You collect facts and tidbits of data, but you may not always have the big picture.
    To the Gemini person, communication is of utmost importance. You flourish on ideas, with a mind that is ever so quick and curious. You are a person who enjoys talking and writing. All sorts of communication ideas appeal to nature. You are aware of all that is going on around you, and you want to understand and participate in it all. You are hard to pin down, and even harder to beat in a debate. Your abilities of combining quick comprehension , and the communication of this comprehension to others, are the hallmarks of your sign. You can talk yourself into and out of situations with ease. Often Mercury people (Gemini's ruling planet is Mercury) take mischievous delight in disconcerting slower minds with their fast paced mental antics. You like to be around people, and you never do well working alone or on any routine type job.

    Extremely friendly, you enjoy companionship, and really thrive on it. Just as you don't like to be without activity, you don't like to be alone. You are likely to have a very wide circle of friends with whom you enjoy many activities--movies, games, conversation, and such. You are naturally outgoing and possess a sparkling wit. You are apt to become quickly bored with conservative types that can't make a decision or agree with your need to impose change. Not being very introspective or reflective, often you don't understand your motivations or the motivations of others. So in many ways, relationships can be shallow and superficial. Your restless mercurial nature requires constant excitement and change, or you'll becomes very dispirited and morose. emoticon
