This is my most recent pic...I'm always cropping! Can't wait til I won't have to do that anymore!
Hi there! My name is Bridget. I joined spark people at the beginning of April 2011. I am so glad with the changes I have been able to make in my life because of SP!!! I have a long journey ahead of me and I am just taking 1 day at a time! My goals are; being healthy, teaching my family how to be healthy, get in my workout EVERY day (whether I feel like it or not), drink lots and lots of water, and lose weight. Things I am looking forward to; Tying my shoes without having to grab a hold of my pant leg and pull my leg up onto my lap first, paint my toenails on my own again, fit into booths at the restaruants, have a higher self-esteem, swimming at the lake/river without feeling like I'm a beached whale (who must be dying or something cuz everyone is staring), water skiing and actually have balance again while doing it!, run a 5k, go to sixflags without worrying wether I will fit in the rides or not!, swinging on the swings at the local park without thinking I'm gonna break the dang thing, well you get the idea, the list goes on and on! I am so looking forward to this new lifestyle, can't wait to start meeting my goals head on!!! :)
My goals are first and foremost to NOT give up this time!!!! My ultimate goal is to get down to atleast 160 lbs. I haven't shopped out of the plus sizes in 10 years! I am so looking forward to that! Also, to teach myself how to eat healthy and raise my girls to eat healthy too! My other goal is to learn how to love exercising again like I did when I was 18, lol!
Currently I am doing the SIS challenge here on SP. I do a minimum of 30 minutes cardio per day, and strength training atleast 3 days per week!
I love walking trails, being outdoors, reading, bowling, swimming, camping, and spending time with my friends and family!

Happy Birthday, DONE GIRL
The Taurus girl is born to a mother she can never measure up to and thus she becomes really stubborn because she dislikes being pushed to do things she doesn't want to do. (Think about the child with the "stage" mother). She can turn to food as a way to control her life (you can't make me not eat this). Her health issues can be in her throat, especially her thyroid. She can be a good singer and enjoy music.
As a Taurus, you are likely to be very patient, a hard worker, and one of those people who constantly puts forth much sustained effort. Your demeanor is slow and deliberate, and attempts by others to hurry you rarely succeed. You need time to adjust to new ideas and changes. You can be stubborn to the point of becoming rigid, but you are practical and constructive in nearly everything you do. You carefully consider options before starting any action or coming to any conclusion. You function best under conditions where there is predictability, and where you can exercise a degree of control.
Good-natured and friendly, your placid demeanor rarely shows upset or anger. When you are aroused, as suggested by the symbol of the sign, your reactions are very much like those of the angered bull. This anger can be reckless, and often lingers.
There is a certain reluctance in the Taurus nature to try anything new or different. You don't take many chances, and you believe in sticking with the familiar and comfortable. There is not much adventure in your soul, and it is probably fair to label you a conservative individual. The danger with Taurus is the tendency to become too narrow-minded, and to dismiss anything that can't be seen, touched, smelled or tasted.
You are not usually the first to learn a lesson, but when it is mastered, you are not likely ever to forget. Retentive and steadfast, you don't scatter your energies. You may be lazy at times, perhaps not spending any energy at all for extended periods. Yet long term, you are very willing to assume responsibility and shoulder more than your fair share of the load.
You may be materialistic, often showing interests in money, security, and comforts in life. To those you love, you often show your feelings in a material way, and you appreciate the same in return. The Taurus personality is sometimes too concerned with money and possessions. Perhaps a little indulgent and luxury-loving, you relish creature comforts and appreciate beautiful possessions. Because of these interests, you have good taste in clothing and furnishings. You also may have a talent for landscaping and working with plants and flowers to make your surrounding more pleasant and appealing.
You may excel as a cook, but even if you don't have the inclination to prepare it, you certainly enjoy food; perhaps too much. Because of this, you may have a battle with your weight. A slow metabolism and lack of interest in exercise often compound this problem.
A natural interest in art and music often leads to careers or hobby pursuits in some form of art. Taurus is the sign that rules the throat, so you may have a fine singing and speaking voice.
Love relationships are very important to you. Since you don't like being alone, you may settle for a partnership that is less than ideal, instead of accepting loneliness. Once settled in a relationship, you are very steadfast and dependable. You are exceedingly loyal, and make a very faithful friend. The most appealing aspect of Taurus, that sweet and loving temperament, is the often present when the Sun appears in Taurus.
