I joined in 2008 and really started to try and get myself healthy but just couldn't find a good system or keep myself accountable. I've since had 2 more children and I am done making babies for good now so I am ready for the weight to be gone and be done with the excuses. I cut soda about 3 months ago and have been drinking water like crazy and now I am counting calories and just trying to be way more aware of what I'm eating and cut out the stuff that spikes my calorie count.

I joined in 2008 and really started to try and get myself healthy but just couldn't find a good system or keep myself accountable. I've since had 2 more children and I am done making babies for good now so I am ready for the weight to be gone and be done with the excuses. I cut soda about 3 months ago and have been drinking water like crazy and now I am counting calories and just trying to be way more aware of what I'm eating and cut out the stuff that spikes my calorie count. Once I get myself in a good groove of eating the right amounts and making good choices about what to avoid I will them start making a huge change in what I eat and changing the way my whole family eats. I am excited to be back and get things on the right track and not only lose weight but get healthy for me and my kids!
To be able to run a marathon, to get to 145 lbs and be toned and healthy.
Ultimately, I want to be there for my kids forever. I want to be a good wife, mom and be a good role model to my kids.
I am going to be starting the couch to 5k program and walking the program 3 days a week And going for a short walk at least one other day a week as weather allows. I am going to not use excuses when my kids want me to play and run with them. I am going to count calories and limit fat, sodium and sugar from my diet.
I am a mother of four; Abigail 8, Sophia 6, Cameron 2 and Michael 6 weeks!
IF YOU NEED A SPARK BUDDY GIVE ME A SHOUT! THE MORE THE MERRIER AND I COULD USE A LITTLE PUSH TO GET ME MOVING.
The Virgo girl is born to a mother who isn't happy with the money the father makes, so the child grows up in a family with a critical parent, so she learns to be critical especially of herself. The father is a good man but rather passive so the shy little Virgo child goes inward for quiet as she doesn't like over-stimulation. She learns to be frugal as money has always been a worry in the home. She doesn't want to be criticized so she works hard to always be ready so she isn't found unprepared. This leads to a lot of stress for the Highly Sensitive Person. Virgo needs alone time and rest. Virgo works well behind the scene helping others look good Virgo gets along with Pisces, Cancer, Capricorn, taurus and Scorpio, but when a relationship goes bad she will walk out and not look back as she is very capable of living on her own. She often finds a man who is the "bad boy" so she can try to improve or change him, but that doesn't work since he finds her a "nag". She is better off staying with intellectual men who want to be a success and finding one she can help get to the top. Weight can be an issue for her as she can turn to sweets for comfort, but her sign rules the Sixth House of Health, so she makes a good nurse caring for others. She LOVES to show others the right way to live, so she can be a health coach. 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.
