My name is Mandy and I am 34 years old. I have lived most of my life overweight and unhealthy. I have 2 young daughters that I do not want to follow in my footsteps so I am making changes now while they are still young so they can learn how to eat to live and not live to eat.

4/12/11- I have been an active SparkPeople member for 4 months now and I can happily report that I have lost 20 pounds since starting the program. I walk 6 out of 7 days a week and I have loving family who support me and keep me on track. I have joined a few Spark Teams and I try to stay motivated on a daily basis. SparkPeople has truly affected me in a positive way. Here is to another four fabulous months!

Reasons Why I want to loose weight:
1. I want to be a good role model for my children
2. I do not want to take medications (blood pressure etc.)any longer
3. I want to be healthy
4. I want to look good
5. I'll be more attractive to my husband
6. My children will not be embarrassed of their "fat mommy"
7. Will be able to wear smaller and more stylish clothes
8. I will enjoy shopping it will no longer be a chore
9. I will be able to play with my kids
10. I will have more energy
11. My self confidence will improve
12. I will not have the fear of not fitting in plane or amusement park seats
13. My knees and back will not hurt as much

7/19/11 - I have lost 50 pounds with Sparkpeople in 7 months, this is the most amazing feeling actually doing what I set out to and seeing the results.

4/12/2013 - A lot has happened since 7/19/11 have had another baby and gained back my weight. The good news is I am back on the wagon again and I have already lost some of that weight I put back on. Another good bit of news is I am not alone in my household this time. My husband and I have teamed up and we ae loosing the weight together this time.

    emoticon Happy BELATED Birthday. Scorpio is a good sign for a woman to be since it makes her very much in charge of her own life. (Julia Roberts and Sally Field are both Scorpio women as is Maria Shriver.) Because the Scorpio child wasn't wanted by the father for whatever reason (often this wasn't even talked about in the family, but the sensitive little Scorpio FELT it and knew, so she learned not to trust others but to depend on herself), the Scorpio child grows up insecure and often a loner, but she rules her own life and whatever she makes of it is completely up to her. In any relationship she is in she MUST be in charge. She gets along well with Pisces, Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn and Taurus). Her health issues can be her female organs, her throat and thyroid, thus she can have a weight issue, but she also has complete self-discipline and can exercise and control what she eats. She is emotional and lives her life always to extremes, so she can turn to drugs, alcohol or food, if she isn't careful and allows her emotions to run away with her. For this reason, she is often a counselor to others, or a fitness trainer or even a military person. She makes up her mind quickly on people and issues, never being in the center. If she likes someone, she is loyal to the end, but if she doesn't she will use her sarcastic manor to let them know. She is always willing to take on a fight, even if she is very much the "church lady." Her life is never an easy one as no matter how much money she gets she will struggle and see her life as difficult. (Maria Shriver who was married to Arnold writes always about how difficult her life has been, while living in a mansion.)
    Scorpio needs a creative outlet so she finds it in some physical manner such as running, Yoga, or even like Picasso, in art that is very unusual. She often has a large family, but she is the bread-winner. (Sally Field supported her first husband and got a divorce saying "I was the Little Red Hen who did it all." So like a Scorpio woman.) the real issue is she doesn't feel anyone else can do it well enough to suit her, so she does it herself, but then gets very tired and she feels used. She has to learn this about herself and give up some control to others as she so often takes on way to much to begin with.
