My beautiful boy.
Highest Weight - 234
My baby boy and me at 200 pounds
I CAN DO IT!
IT'S TIME TO TAKE TIME FOR MYSELF!
I started gaining weight when I was 21 and both of my parents became extremely sick. While I took care of them, I gained about 40 pounds. After they got better, I fell in love and had a beautiful boy. In addition to gaining more love in my life, I gained another 50 pounds. I put my family first, my work second and my friends third. Now, it's time to move myself up on the list. I can only help others if I can help myself. I want to be healthy and I want to be active.
In December of 2013, after seeing a picture of myself from Christmas and stepping on the scale, I realized that I weighed 229 pounds. I started changing my daily habits. I joined SparkPeople at the end of April 2014. At the end of July, 2014, I weight 191 pounds. I have a long way to go, but the weigh is coming off consistently.
I WILL SUCCEED!
I need to get healthy! I NEED to make time to exercise and I need to eat properly!
I'm 29 years old, on my way to the big 3-0. I have one biological son and one stepson. My SO works out of town, so it's just me during the week. I have a desk job and find it really hard to make time for myself during the week. I am trying to quit smoking and lose weight. It's time...

Happy BELATED Birthday, DONE GIRL
Persons born on the Leo-Virgo cusp can either be a raging extrovert or very secretive. While this appears to be opposite, it is in fact part of the same thing. One can't reveal something unless it has been hidden. They have a good sense of timing. They have an innate sense of when to speak and when to keep quiet. This talent can be used to manipulate, wound or dominate others when needed.
Leo-Virgo needs to let people really get to know them. Hiding away won't get them the recognition they long for. They may end up keeping secrets from themselves if they are not cautious. They need to let others into their lives to share their feelings and experiences.
Decisive and direct, Leo-Virgo is sure they will succeed. They can exaggerate or overreact sometimes, but they are positive for the most part. They have a natural stubborn streak that prevents them from giving up on a hard task. They are cheerful and warm-hearted. They can be very selective and discriminating when needed. They make excellent students, and make sensible business decisions. Extravagant promises leave them skeptical. They do love taking risks, though. Gambling may be fun for them.

They can be jealous at times, but they are not really very flirtatious. They are creative and pay close attention to details. They show their love by doing things for their loved one. They are thoughtful and unique.
This cusp is conflicted by Leo's drama and Virgo's lack of sociability. If they can pull themselves together for a cause they truly believe in, the strengths of both signs come together. They have to believe in what they are doing to let their passion show.
Leo-Virgo is honest, unique, logical, creative, flamboyant, artistic, routine, practical, organized, ambitious, inspiring and dramatic. They like to have fun and are generally optimistic.

Leo-Virgo is a hard worker and a logical thinker. They are earthy and appreciate what we get from the ground. They are very persuasive, which makes them good lawyers, physicians, and teachers. They are tactful, and don't often offend others. They appreciate the outdoors.
