Shared Food Tracker
I am 63 years old. I've lived in Boston and New York City and have been living the last 37 years on Cape Cod.
I'm married ( 40 years ) and have two daughters ( 25 & 28 ) and a wonderful 3 year old Grandson, Kai. We have a dog named Bailey.
I absolutely LOVE my family, Art, Faraway Places, traveling, reading great books, helping others, most music, international food.
I've been fighting weight since my early twenties. Maybe even earlier. Weight was always a big issue in my family while I was growing up. I really want to do what I can to take control over my life and stop food from controlling me.
My goals are to put more"good for me" things into my life like exercise and journaling and learning to look forward to doing those things.
For weight loss goals, I'm going to focus on 50lbs at a time.
Bailey, our dog is 11 years old. He's a mix of Lhasa Apso, Shih-Tzu, and Poodle. He's as cute as can be.
I love to read.
Books I've read recently...
Becoming Jane Austin,
Eat, Pray, Love,
People of the Book,
all of Janet Evanovich
and Sue Grafton
Waking the Dead
Wire in the Blood,
Lie to Me

Happy Birthday DONE GIRL
The Virgo child is born to a mother who is not happy with the money the father makes, so the child grows up with a critical parent. Virgo learns to criticize because she wants to "get them first, before they get me." She really is a shy, introverted person, who dislikes loud noises and crude people. She never can tell her mother how she really feels, and her father is most often a passive man, but a good man. She learns to be frugal with money, because she had fear about not having any as a child. She gets along well with Taurus, Capricorn, Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio. She can have health issues with her bowels. She loves to teach others how to live life well. (Dr. Phil is a Virgo.) She has few children, but makes a good mother who keeps her children on the straight and narrow. If she is done wrong in love she will leave and not think about looking back. When she is over with a relationship, it is over. She won't be made a fool of twice.
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.
