Hello, I'm Candace. I struggled with weight issues my whole life but now, everything is different. I'm losing weight and I'm more determined than ever to be fit and healthy. It's taken me 33 years but I really feel like THIS time I'll get it right. I have been writing everything down but then I remembered Sparkpeople so I'm back and I would much rather use the tools on this website to keep track of everything as opposed to remembering to have a notebook with me everywhere I go. I am shy, I don't like being the center of attention so losing weight and seeing people's reactions after they haven't seen me in a while comes with it's awkwardness that I'm learning to smile through and simply say, "Thank you!"
1. Be healthy (Mind, Body and Spirit)
2. Get to One-derland by February 2017 (I don't remember the last time my weight has been in the 100s)
3. Get an accountability partner and not be so uncomfortable with the idea of having one
4. Help someone else who is struggling and feels like there is no hope. I want to be an example that there IS hope.
Right now I am walking every morning after breakfast. Once I get to walking/jogging 15 minute miles I will increase another mile. I will also start lifting weights twice a week beginning Thursday, September 8. I was supposed to start earlier this week but I have been a chicken about hitting the weights again. Turbo Sculpt will be what I start with since it has helped me get strong before.
I am a daughter of The Most High God. I love Yahshua (Jesus) and my hearts desire is to be more and more like Him everyday. He's really my everything and I'm not just saying that. I am my parents oldest child and I have 1 little sister and 3 little brothers. I live in South Carolina but I work and worship in Charlotte, NC. I minister to women in a detention center every 3rd Saturday and I try my best to help the homeless when I can (kinda hard when you don't carry cash...I'm working on it)! I love to travel, I love all things pink, family is important to me and I love all things CAROLINA PANTHERS (I've had lunch with Cam Newton...twice)!!! I don't really go out much, I don't do drama and I keep my circle of friends very small. Anything else you want to know, just ask me!

Happy Belated Birthday, DONE GIRL
Cancer is introverted, reserved, emotional, sensitive, moody, sympathetic, security-conscious, prudent, retentive, domestic, maternal, protective, quiet, calm, imaginative, conscientious, and quite the traditionalist.
Cancer gets along with Pisces, Scorpio, Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn.
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.
