My goal in life.
Me, on 7/8/12. I felt it was time for an update.

I love reading the Success Stories in Shape and on SparkPeople. But I'm sick of reading other people's success stories. I'm ready to be my own Success Story.
I like presents...a lot. I plan to gift myself for each weight loss goal I achieve. They sound delightfully pampering:
10 lbs (from 294 lbs): Sparkpeople tshirt (earned 10/13)
20 lbs: Manicure
30 lbs: Pedicure
40 lbs: New workout shoes
50 lbs: Massage
60 lbs: session with a personal trainer
70 lbs: workout outfit
80 lbs: Haircut with highlights
90 lbs: Spa day (never done one, sounds lovely)
100 lbs: New tattoo
"To keep the body in good health is a duty...otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear." Buddha
I want to be healthy and fit again. I want to be able to run and play with my kids, run up the stairs, ride a roller coaster, sit in a movie theater...and be comfortable and feel good about myself. I want to enjoy my body again.
Making small changes to my life. Adding a little more movement each day. Paying attention to what I put in my body.
I am a wife, working mom, and goddess living in lovely northern Kentucky (grin.)
Social to a fault, I love to talk. I love reading everything, from books to blogs. I have an unnatural attachment to my camera, I like to think of myself as arty (with no artistic talent), and sooner or later I'd like to learn to: knit and/or crochet something besides a scarf, tap dance, fence, and grow a garden without killing it. Not in that order.

Happy Birthday DONE GIRL
In Gemini the Sun is active, restless and changeable. You like plenty of variety in your everyday activities, in your friends, and even in your diet. Your interests are many and diverse--almost anything will attract your attention if only for a brief time. Truly, this is the sign of the jack-of-all-trades. As the story goes, you may find that unless you can develop your powers of perseverance, you may be the master of none. Your varied interests can result in a tendency for you to spread yourself too thin, sometimes failing to follow through on projects you've begun.
The Gemini child is most often born to a father who is well respected in the community. Gemini is often the baby in the family and thus grows up fast learning to talk early in order to keep up with the older kids. Gemini gets along with Libra, Aquarius, Leo, Aries and Sagittarius.
Being very curious, you want to know and experience as much as you can. Gemini is the sign of duality. You find it difficult to limit yourself to one job, to one relationship, or one hobby, as you constantly seek variety and mental adventure. You scatter your energies because you don't want to miss anything. You are a lifelong student, never tiring of learning new subjects. You collect facts and tidbits of data, but you may not always have the big picture.
To the Gemini person, communication is of utmost importance. You flourish on ideas, with a mind that is ever so quick and curious. You are a person who enjoys talking and writing. All sorts of communication ideas appeal to nature. You are aware of all that is going on around you, and you want to understand and participate in it all. You are hard to pin down, and even harder to beat in a debate. Your abilities of combining quick comprehension , and the communication of this comprehension to others, are the hallmarks of your sign. You can talk yourself into and out of situations with ease. Often Mercury people (Gemini's ruling planet is Mercury) take mischievous delight in disconcerting slower minds with their fast paced mental antics. You like to be around people, and you never do well working alone or on any routine type job.
Extremely friendly, you enjoy companionship, and really thrive on it. Just as you don't like to be without activity, you don't like to be alone. You are likely to have a very wide circle of friends with whom you enjoy many activities--movies, games, conversation, and such. You are naturally outgoing and possess a sparkling wit. You are apt to become quickly bored with conservative types that can't make a decision or agree with your need to impose change. Not being very introspective or reflective, often you don't understand your motivations or the motivations of others. So in many ways, relationships can be shallow and superficial. Your restless mercurial nature requires constant excitement and change, or you'll becomes very dispirited and morose.
