Me and my childhood friends in New Orleans
WELCOME TO MY SPARKPAGE!!
My name is Cindy, and my journey with weight problems began when I was nine years old. I had always been a thin child until the age of nine, at which time I began to gain weight. My parents, brother, and other members of my family were not overweight, with the exception of one uncle on my fathers side.
Throughout my teenage and early adult years I was about 15-30 pounds overweight, not obese but still teased by classmates, friends and family, and later by coworkers and boyfriends. I would get control of my weight for periods of time but always gained it back again.
Food addiction has been a problem for me and I am learning not to use food to try to fix a problem or for social reasons.
I am working hard to change my life through healthy eating and living. My involvement with Sparkpeople is helping me reclaim my self esteem and to like myself for who I am now and not what someone else wants me to be.
The support of the people on this site has really opened my eyes and is helping me to slowly become the person I want to be.
Get back on track with my fitness, and continue to work toward my goal of losing 30 pounds by the end of the year 2016.
8 glasses of water per day.
Track my food every day.
At least 10 minutes of exercise per day.
Making better food choices and moving around more.
1,400 - 1,700 calories.
I live in Northwestern Connecticut with my 3 cats, Pumpkin, Mao, and Reese Cup, and my wonderful husband Joe.

DONE GIRL. (Belated)
The Libra woman is a "steel fist in a velvet glove" who loves everything beautiful, but can put on work clothes and spend the day doing whatever dirty job is needed. Libra was the peacemaker in the family and thus dislikes any type of argument. She is often said to be lazy, but that couldn't be further from the truth as she works very hard to finish a project and then she needs to completely rest. She works best with a partner since she always sees both sides of any situation and she can benefit from another person helping her with a job. She makes a great lawyer, interior designer, hairdresser, furniture salesman, marriage counselor, parent (she's fair), arbitrator, judge, artist, yoga instructor, personnel director, math teacher or architect. She thrives in any profession where she is a team player and working with people.
Libra's health issues are around her kidneys and her skin.
Libra can have a weight issues if her scales are off balance, but by nature, Libra isn't a fat sign. To stay in balance she needs to learn to eat to live and find ways to relieve her stress, often through dance, Pilates, biking, or team sports such as volleyball.
Libra gets along best with Sagittarius, Aries, Gemini, Leo and Aquarius.
