It is time for me to get serious, no more excuses. I am DONE feeling like this, DONE waiting for the right time, Done wanting to feel better about ME. I need to make time for me to walk, exercise, relax, plan meals....
I recently got married and really, really regret not doing this before the wedding. Part of me feels like I ruined our wedding day pics by being as heavy as I was then (and still am). We didn't take a honeymoon and I would like to lose enough weight that when we do take our post-poned honeymoon, I can be relaxed enough to not worry about pictures or what people think when I am in a restaurant....
I want to enjoy exercise, feel confident and healthy and shop where the cute clothes are :)
I am DONE with the negative feelings and ready to take action!
In the First week of November 2011, my husband of 1 year informed me we were getting divorced. I have spent the last month trying to find an apartment, vehicle, job and everything else that is needed when starting over. I have not been on here in almost 2 months because of the drama...I will be moving in the next week or so and plan to revisit my reasons for joining SP in the first place. Until then....
I am setting several smaller goals leading to my ultimate goal...my goal(s) is to lose 10% of my body weight and then another10% of that resulting weight and so on until I reach my long-term goal of 160-175 lbs.
-I am drinking a minimum of 8 glasses of water a day
-walking as often as possible(chronic sprained ankle and possible heel spur in same foot can make this difficult sometimes)
-track ALL foods
-don't beat myself up when I fall off-course
-15 minutes of exercise everyday
I love, love, love to read! Also love music, most of it anyways.
That's it for now :)

Happy BELATED Birthday, DONE GIRL
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.
