I am now considered a "Maintainer" here on spark because I have reached my goal weight this past year and now need to maintain it. It is WONDERFUL to be at my goal weight and to maintain the weight it takes a constant conscience effort to keep my healthy habits active in my day. So I MUST remember to make and take the time for me that I need to stay a healthier person. In Memory of my Dad: "You've Got to Move to Improve" Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take,but by the moments that take our breath away. I am Done Making excuses! I am "DONE" being overweight! I am Done hiding behind big clothes! I am Done expecting someone else to fix me! I am Done Putting myself last! I am done laying on my butt! I am Done hiding from cameras! I am Done overeating! I am Done feeling embarrassed about my weight! I am Done wishing I was thin and doing nothing about it! I am Done not working towards my goals! I am Done with being out of energy! I am Done feeling tired! I am Done with the emotional eating I am Done making poor choices! I am Done living in denial! I am Done lying to myself! I am done saying only what I want to hear! I am Done being the fat girl!!

Member Since: 8/25/2008

Fitness Minutes: 13,362

My Goals:
To lose the extra weight, build up my energy level , I want to take long walks with my dogs and stop isolating and join the land of the living, the healthy and the fit!

My Program:
I will make better food choices and be more aware of the food I put in my mouth. I will be more thoughtful of the consequences to my body and health from what I eat. I will have better portion control. I will check in here everyday, make goals and follow thru with them. If I have trouble and need help, I will reach out to a fellow spark people member for the support, encouragement and motivation I need to get me through. I will join teams to reach my goals and be here for others that may need help and support as well.

Personal Information:
I am determined to incorporate all the tools I have gained by sparking within my daily life and share with my friends as others shared with me. I have learned if we really want something bad enough we CAN achieve it!!!

Other Information:
I am an animal lover. I love music and reality shows are a weakness.

I am" DONE" being overweight!!

"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail."
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

    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.
    Gemini can have problems with their nerves and experience anxiety or depression. They should never smoke as their lungs are their health area of concern. Gemini can have injury to their shoulders and hands. Since they love to be active they must learn to watch and take caution.
    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.
