I CAN do this... You CAN do this!

Hey guys. I'm just another girl in her 30's who finally realized something had to change~ I was miserable, unhealthy, and dealing with really low self esteem. I am getting healthier and making fitness goals I never thought I would attempt, much less achieve. I have found great motivation through Sparkpeople & my crazy healthy husband and have lost 60 pounds since November 2010. I am longer diabetic nor am I obese. I still have 50 pounds to go until my goal weight but now I know what I thought ...
Hey guys. I'm just another girl in her 30's who finally realized something had to change~ I was miserable, unhealthy, and dealing with really low self esteem. I am getting healthier and making fitness goals I never thought I would attempt, much less achieve. I have found great motivation through Sparkpeople & my crazy healthy husband and have lost 60 pounds since November 2010. I am longer diabetic nor am I obese. I still have 50 pounds to go until my goal weight but now I know what I thought was impossible is definitely possible.

SP has educated me and helped me to realize how ignorant I was regarding food and nutrition. Knowledge is an important tool in weight loss. I encourage you to be active in your health~ only you can make yourself take the steps toward change. Others can help you along the way but you have to want this and work for it. I have never heard anyone say, "I regret getting healthy". I always wonder why I waited so long to make the changes that have turned my life around.

Life is too short to be miserable and sedentary. I encourage you to get up, get active, and get healthy. You CAN do this!

emoticon Happy Birthday, DONE GIRL

The Taurus girl is born to a mother she can never measure up to and thus she becomes really stubborn because she dislikes being pushed to do things she doesn't want to do. (Think about the child with the "stage" mother). She can turn to food as a way to control her life (you can't make me not eat this). Her health issues can be in her throat, especially her thyroid. She can be a good singer and enjoy music.
As a Taurus, you are likely to be very patient, a hard worker, and one of those people who constantly puts forth much sustained effort. Your demeanor is slow and deliberate, and attempts by others to hurry you rarely succeed. You need time to adjust to new ideas and changes. You can be stubborn to the point of becoming rigid, but you are practical and constructive in nearly everything you do. You carefully consider options before starting any action or coming to any conclusion. You function best under conditions where there is predictability, and where you can exercise a degree of control.
Good-natured and friendly, your placid demeanor rarely shows upset or anger. When you are aroused, as suggested by the symbol of the sign, your reactions are very much like those of the angered bull. This anger can be reckless, and often lingers.
There is a certain reluctance in the Taurus nature to try anything new or different. You don't take many chances, and you believe in sticking with the familiar and comfortable. There is not much adventure in your soul, and it is probably fair to label you a conservative individual. The danger with Taurus is the tendency to become too narrow-minded, and to dismiss anything that can't be seen, touched, smelled or tasted.
You are not usually the first to learn a lesson, but when it is mastered, you are not likely ever to forget. Retentive and steadfast, you don't scatter your energies. You may be lazy at times, perhaps not spending any energy at all for extended periods. Yet long term, you are very willing to assume responsibility and shoulder more than your fair share of the load.
You may be materialistic, often showing interests in money, security, and comforts in life. To those you love, you often show your feelings in a material way, and you appreciate the same in return. The Taurus personality is sometimes too concerned with money and possessions. Perhaps a little indulgent and luxury-loving, you relish creature comforts and appreciate beautiful possessions. Because of these interests, you have good taste in clothing and furnishings. You also may have a talent for landscaping and working with plants and flowers to make your surrounding more pleasant and appealing.
You may excel as a cook, but even if you don't have the inclination to prepare it, you certainly enjoy food; perhaps too much. Because of this, you may have a battle with your weight. A slow metabolism and lack of interest in exercise often compound this problem.
A natural interest in art and music often leads to careers or hobby pursuits in some form of art. Taurus is the sign that rules the throat, so you may have a fine singing and speaking voice.
Love relationships are very important to you. Since you don't like being alone, you may settle for a partnership that is less than ideal, instead of accepting loneliness. Once settled in a relationship, you are very steadfast and dependable. You are exceedingly loyal, and make a very faithful friend. The most appealing aspect of Taurus, that sweet and loving temperament, is the often present when the Sun appears in Taurus.
