My name is Laura. I live in Beaverton, OR. My family and I moved here in June of 2012. Before that, we were in Fort Worth, TX. Aaand before that, I was born and raised in Arizona. I have twin boys who are amazing kids. My husband and I are best friends and have been since 2001. I enjoy hiking, reading, video games (Final Fantasy, minecraft, League of Legends). I come off as sarcastic and funny because I refuse to grow up. :) Two years ago I went from 305 lbs down to 200 lbs. I struggled to lose weight at that point. When we moved to Oregon, we had a really hard first year, and I gained back 60 lbs. Now I'm trying to work it off again with hiking. I'd really like to make some friends here since I haven't had a chance with work and family.
I would like to lose 50 lbs every 6 months. I need to improve my heart drastically. I'd love to be around for my kids without always being tired. And who wouldn't want to look hot when they're naked in front of their husband. So I guess my goals are to be healthy, be happy, and be hot in the nude.
I have cut out all fast food.
I go out, but I need to know what I'm going to get and put it in my calorie counter before the food goes into my mouth. This way I don't feel restrained, i just have to work the rest of the day around it.
Exercise at least 10 min a day.
Lose weight doing what I like, dancing and hiking.
I'm from Phx, AZ but currently live in Beaverton, Oregon. We just moved here in July (2012) and I'm working on making friends again and finding my place here. I have twin boys who make me happy for every new day. I'm married to the most wonderful man in the world who encourages me to be positive.
I love love love to laugh. I try to be funny as much as I can. I love books, mostly romance (not the sex filled kind since I can't really read if I have to cover my eyes). I write on the side as a hobby. I'm a Christian and I know I couldn't do this without God whispering positivity into my ear.

Happy BELATED Birthday, DONE GIRL
The Gemini child is born to a father who is well respected in the community and she is often the "baby" in the family. She grows up fast as she is allowed to keep up with the bigger kids so she talks early and she continues to love to talk. She often has two of everything, and later in life can have two marriages. She loves variety and can change easily. She should never marry young, but take time to explore the world and learn about herself. She can have problems with her "nerves" and depression can be an issue for her. She thinks to much. (Marilyn Monroe was a Gemini woman. Her best friend said "No one knows the real Marilyn.) Gemini can be very different behind closed doors. She gets along with Libra, Aquarius, Aries, Leo, Sagittarius and Virgo. She should avoid controlling Scorpio who keeps secrets. She must have a person who is open & honest as she tells all. She loves to play games. She makes a good writer, reporter, or front-person as she loves to talk. She isn't meant to be obese, as she has to much energy, so she needs to have an outlet for exercise.
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.
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.

Because today's so special
it really wouldn't do,
to send one simple birthday wish
to last the whole year through...
So this wishes happy moments,
a day when dreams come true,
and a year that's filled with all the things
that mean the most to you.
1 HAPPY SPIRIT
