Hello all ... I am a stay at home mother of 2, I have a daughter with severe disabilities and a son who is extremely athletic, loves the outdoors, and fortunately for me has always been the type of kid who would rather be outside doing something then be inside playing video games or watching T.V., although this is great for him, it is harder for me, my daughter requires constant supervision and we can't just go take a hike, or go swimming, or skiing, without having a plan and even then if she is having a bad day, the plan has to be scrapped at the last minute at times. This has caused me to become inactive as it tends to be easier to just stay home then try to get everyone out to do something active.
I am hoping that with this site and the help it provides, I can find a way to motivate myself to be all that I can be, I want to be able to live a long and healthy life and even though the days I am able to go do something active with my son, may be few, I want to be ready when those occasions do occur and make the most out of it.
Generally, as most everyone else, I am hoping to be healthier and looking forward to the day that I can look in the mirror and see the person that I have always wanted to be both inside and out. I know she is in there somewhere!
Specifically, I would like to lose 7 pounds in the month of April 2010, and weigh 207
I plan on keeping my calorie intake between 1300 and 1600/day, doing 40 minutes of cardio 5 days a week, actively participating in the C25K challenge (currently in week 5) and strength training 3 days a week!
| current weight: 205.2

Done Girl, Happy BELATED Birthday is the song we are singing
The Cancer girl is a moody child, who needs very caring parents who can understand her need to "cling." But, often the Cancer girl doesn't have this security & is pushed to grow up quickly. She is placed in the role of "the mother" & has to help with other children, or doing work in the house. So, she becomes a "boss" making decisions for herself, but all the time wanting someone else to be there for her, so she can lean on them. Through out her life she will have a dual personality where she wants to run everything around her, but then she wants to be taken care of. Often she will find a controlling man, but then she will find a way to control him. It makes her very lonely at times and she can turn to food for comfort. She certainly can have a "weight" problem as she struggles with her emotions.
She gets along with Scorpio, Virgo, Taurus, Pisces, and Capricorn. She makes a good business woman working in the food industry, home decor, or beauty industry. She loves children & can work as a day care worker or teacher.
Illness can center around the breast and stomach.
Cancer's ruling planet is the Moon which gives it an extremely empathic temperament. Cancer is a Water Sign and because the Moon naturally rules over the oceans, tides and human emotion, it has a powerful effect on this Sign.
Cancer is also the natural ruler of the fourth house which governs family relations and home life. It also deals with ancestry, security and real estate.
This Zodiac Sign’s traits are said to be the least clear-cut as compared to the other Signs in the Zodiac. It varies from being timid, shy and withdrawn to the most brilliant and grand. (Princess Diana was a Cancer who suffered from shyness, yet loved the idea of being the Queen. Nancy Reagan became First Lady wanting the attention, but went into her "shell" to deal with the critics.)
To their intimates they show kindness, sensitivity and devotion.
