Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
12/11/10 - After too much drama, I'm finally back and ready to go! Don't want to focus on the dramatic past, only want to visualize a happier, skinnier me! I'm back to counting calories, and I'm a frequent face at the gym. This really is the best place for me to be, and I'm happy to be back!
My name is Sherri and I'm SO ready to change my lifestyle. I've known for years that diets don't work, and like so many I've fallen into the cycle of weight on, weight off, more weight back on . . .
I'm 5'2" and packing on 185 lbs. - the most I've ever weighed. But no more losing weight for me. From now on I'm GAINING - self-respect, a healthier lifestyle and a fit, rockin' bod!
I know what works, what doesn't, and what's at the heart of the matter. Today I am starting my way to a healthier me because I love the person staring back at me in the mirror . . . and I want to be able to look at that person for a long, long time.
I'm taking small baby steps each day and hugging myself for the small victories that happen throughout the day. I'm ready! Let's GO!
I want to be the healthiest I've ever been at age 44.
I'm soooo close to being in the 150's.
Tracking everything I eat and stay within calorie limits.
Drinking 8 glasses of water every day.
Cardio at least 4 times per week.
I am a married mom with three children. My oldest, 28, lives in Southern California with her wonderful husband and has a beautiful baby girl whom I adore; my second daughter is 18, and my son is 15. Both at-home-kids are active in sports and play year-round.
The child that behaves the best is our 3-year-old pit-bull, Chico.
My husband and I have been married for 22 years, and though I love him to pieces, he may actually be the reason (not age) that my hair is turning gray!
I've always wanted a tattoo, but have been too chicken to go through with it!

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.
