My name is Vanessa and I started this journey to have a healthy pregnancy (no, not pregnant yet) and to be an example for my family.

I've gained a lot of weight over the years. I went from being really active most days to a sedentary desk job. Yet my eating habits haven't changed and the weight piled on. So now I'm here.

My name is Vanessa and I started this journey to have a healthy pregnancy (no, not pregnant yet) and to be an example for my family.

I've gained a lot of weight over the years. I went from being really active most days to a sedentary desk job. Yet my eating habits haven't changed and the weight piled on. So now I'm here.

Losing weight is hard for me. I don't mind working out but I love to eat food. My biggest struggle is dealing with the right portions and overindulging on sweets. And cheese. And wine. And all things Mexican food.

I'm married and we have a son who brings us so much joy. I love being a wife and mom and want to be a healthy example for my family.

The Gemini-Cancer Cusp is inspired. It doesn't matter if this is made known in public or not. This cusp combination is highly devoted to those they love and they offer their care and compassion to their families, their patients, clients and anyone else they work with in any capacity. They are self-effacing and don't put themselves forward for praise. They are the kind of people that their goodness just shines from within.
Gemini-Cancer may conflict between their logic and emotions. They have the ability to find inspiration in the most ordinary of things. They do have a problem feeling complete unless they have love, romance and family.
Gemini-Cancer needs to work on some things to be successful. First, they need to keep themselves from getting lost in ecstatic experiences. They may have difficulty finding themselves again. Repressing their feelings is a mistake. Destructive emotions can tear them apart; they need to learn how to deal with them and make them more positive.
Gemini-Cancer keeps close ties with their families. They are light-hearted and act young, no matter what their age. They are good with food and entertaining. They can be flirtatious, playful, romantic and caring. They have the ability to blend conversational and intellectual skills. They can empathize with their loved ones and help them work through their issues.
Gemini-Cancer loves to be home. It is their little corner of the universe where they feel secure and happy. They may be reckless at times; and stay to themselves at others when they feel vulnerable. They are humorous, intelligent, sociable, graceful, loving, cheerful, affectionate, opinionated, seductive, friendly, honest, attractive, spontaneous, flirtatious, loyal, jealous, detached, clumsy, restless, inconsistent, manipulative, and calculating. The Cusp of Magic somehow manages to blend all these attributes into a charming, ethereal being.
Individuals born on the Gemini-Cancer cusp are usually fond of children, but may not be able to maintain a marriage because their heart is so easily captured by another. It seems like someone always manages to pick up the pieces when they fail, no matter what realm their endeavor was in. They have magnetic personalities; they are the light bulb around which flutters the hapless moths. They are tolerant of others. They may become over-opinionated.
They may enjoy activities such as genealogy, history, archeology and other related topics. They are always curious and active. They can brighten up family get-togethers. They are a bit sensitive emotionally, so they may have sudden ups and downs to contend with. Moodiness can be a problem at times. They do like solitude at times
