Well, it's been about 2 1/2 years since we joined WW. David's been doing great - he's lost 22 pounds, and I've lost about 18. It's great to be on track again.
I talked my husband, David, into joining Weight Watchers with me. We went to our first meeting tonight. He's not too happy about it, but I really need some kind of outside influence to get me going. I haven't been able to reconnect by myself. So, here's to us, and to getting healthier together.
I love this and couldn't find a way to save it to favorites:
To be in good enough shape that I can enjoy traveling and sightseeing marathons!
To use exercise and weight management to improve my pain management.
To help my friends reach their goals, as well!
1. Track what I eat every day,
2. Weigh in once a week.
I'm a counselor in private practice. I also direct the choir at my Methodist church, and love to sing, read, make jewelry, do crosswords, and watch tv! (notice how most of these can be done while sitting on the couch??)
I'm a Native Texan!
Being in the helping profession tends to result in weight gain for a lot of people. I wonder if you have experienced this too?
SparkPeople has given me the tools I need to focus my energies and get the support I need to handle my stress in healthier ways, which has allowed me to lose almost 55 pounds so far!

Happy BELATED Birthday, DONE GIRL We are singing your song.
The Virgo child is born to a mother who isn't happy with the money the father makes, so the child grows up with a critical parent. The father is a kind man but rather passive. The shy and sensitive Virgo child learns to be critical as a defense "I'll get them before they get me" so she really doesn't want to be that way. It is just a self-protection that draws attention away from herself.
Her secret fear is that she won't be able to attract people who really like her. Her Leo sister is a Leader who shines in the spotlight and Virgo does her best work being the person behind the scenes.
She is frugal because her parent did so much complaining about money. She tries to be perfect, but finds that very tiring. She can have an issue with being fat if she turns to food for comfort, but being that way is so against her real nature. Virgo rules the sixth house of Health, so she wants to be an example to others on how life should be lived. Having others criticize her behind her back about her appearance is a real fear of hers. She does have the discipline to be fit and trim.
In a relationship, Virgo can be fooled once, but she won't stay around to be fooled twice. She would rather be alone than in a bad relationship. She often picks a man who is beneath her & tries to reform him, but she can find this doesn't work as he will resent her making him over. If he is a "bad boy" type, this can really go wrong for her. Although, Virgo can appear to be the "Librarian" type she can have a Dark sexual side to her behind closed doors. She has the mystery of Greta Garbo or Sophia Loren or Lauren Bacall.
She gets along with another Virgo, Taurus, Capricorn, Pisces, Scorpio and Cancer.
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.
