I've realised something lately, and no it's not just a new years thing. I need to get myself back.

5 years ago I was involved in a workplace accident 3 days before my high school graduation that caused me to basicly be unable to walk for 4 months. I went from being a dancer with a 130lb 5'8" figure to just under 200lbs. I have been fluctuating between 170 and 200 since then and it is time to stop. I recieved my Chef's certification 1 year after my accident, and well needless to ...
I've realised something lately, and no it's not just a new years thing. I need to get myself back.

5 years ago I was involved in a workplace accident 3 days before my high school graduation that caused me to basicly be unable to walk for 4 months. I went from being a dancer with a 130lb 5'8" figure to just under 200lbs. I have been fluctuating between 170 and 200 since then and it is time to stop. I recieved my Chef's certification 1 year after my accident, and well needless to say fine french food and diet don;t go together well. About a year and a half ago I hit the 200lb mark again. (That's what I get for eating a creme brulée for breakfast I geuss.) It was also the same time that I went home to BC for the first time in 6 years, my realatives were being poliete you could tell, but being next to my 2 cousins (who used to be very large) and my petite sister with them all in bikinis and me in a t-shirt and jeans near the beach it hit me, that I needed to change, I just havn't been able to alone.

I joined SparkPeople a few months ago with good intentions at the advice of a co-worker, and stuck to it for a little, then the holidays came around and it became I'll do it tomorrow, or what's another glass of Egg Nog? Doing this I gained back most of my progress from the few weeks I had followed it closely. This time I am determined not to let it go again, before I was just using the nutrition tracker but as of last week have been going to the local Y every other day, I already feel healthier, so much so that after trying to quit smoking for the past.....10 years or so...yes i started young. I am no longer wanting them, the smell if making me feel ill after working out and I am down to a pack a week just at work, though I plan on quitting completely by the end of the month.

I am really looking for support on this site, and so far what I have found I great...just discovered this page thing today acctually, and I am quite excited. Hence the novel I am writting here. :P

Happy Birthday to You!!

Born today (Aug 1), you seem to have your own concept of time that is often at odds with the way the world at large views it -- and this will surely bring you into direct conflict with those in charge again and again, especially when you are expected to get something done according to a timeline devised by someone else. There are times, in fact, in which you may purposely ignore the instructions of others simply to assert your independence and to progress through the day at a more leisurely pace.

It is this very independence, however, that is your greatest strength, for it allows you to follow your instincts and to accomplish things that are truly original and unique. You are by no means a copycat, and you cannot abide any form of imitation in your work.

Hope your day is wonderful!
