"And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom." -- Anais Nin

I'm Mary. I'm 30, newly separated, and living just north of Toronto (Canada). I'm trying to find my place in the world, and it's pretty darn scary if not exhilarating. I love nature, good coffee, doing artsy stuff, and I'm aspiring to bring vegan meals into my carnivorous life.

Right now, my main goal is getting out of obese territory. I've struggled with my weight since I was 3 years old, and I have trouble staying motivated and self-disciplined. Here's to positive change!

Current Status:
MISSVOLUPTUOUS So disappointed that I'm still comfortably in a size 20. I've been working so hard and had hoped to have gone back down to an 18. My goal of being a size 8 again is still so far away.

Welcome back! We were spark friends back in 2011 I believe. I went missing for a bit and when I came back earlier this year most of my spark friends were gone. Just saw your updates that you were back so I wanted to say congrats and welcome back!

At the time I was waiting for my wife to immigrate to Canada. We ended up living in Orlando for a year and now I am back in Canada waiting for immigration paperwork to be approved so I can move to the US.

I hope you are doing well, and please let me know if you need any support. Take Care!

emoticon Happy Birthday, DONE GIRL

This is the best time of the year for you to begin anew as your Sun sign gives you strength to make a fresh start. Cancer is a wonderful sign for a woman to be as it is the sign of the mother, who is in control of her family. You have tenacity to stay with and finish any task you start. You can be a nag and you want everything don't yesterday and done your way. Often you are the "Little Red Hen" who ends up doing it all. Learn to direct others so they take part in the work. Cancer can certainly have a weight problem as she loves to cook and to eat. But, she also has tenacity and can exercise and keep herself fit if she wants as this is her way to setting an example to those around her. She gets along with Virgo, Capricorn, Taurus, Pisces and Scorpio. She is a saver and most often has her secret cash account.
She can have health issues with her breasts.
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. - emoticon
