I really do want to lose weight and restart my life after losing my husband. My Hubby was 33 y/o when he passed unexpectedly from a heart attack in 2010. He had a lot of medical issues too. I have several medical issues that I need to get a handle on.

I am busy constantly... I work 2 jobs; a student; a member of the Deaf Community; an event planner for: work, school and Deaf/ASL Socials in my area; a friend; a sister; an auntie to my nephews and their friends; and a p.i.t.a. to my friend Miguel.

I have been busy trying to finish my degree in Deaf Education. I work for the same college where I attend. I love my job and my boss. My boss allows for his employees to get out and walk the track, behind our campus. The conditions are: We can't have students waiting on us and we can only be gone for 20 to 30 minutes max. I have no excuse now, not to walk either inside the building or outside on the track.

My Goals:

1. I want to lose 200 pounds. I started Spark after being weighed in at 375 pounds. My heavest weight ever!

2. I want to fit in one airplane seat, without using an extender. I flew April 2012 and was embarrassed by some rude comments made. I blew them off by acting deaf and making the rude people feel like crap. ((I take full responsibility for my actions and some of my Deaf friends have jumped my bum for this.))

3. I want to finish my degree here in Houston, Texas before having to move to complete my bachelors/masters in another city and state.

4. My dream is to attend 'Deaf Mecca' also known as Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C.

5. I really want to teach in Deaf Education or to work for a High School/College. Yet, my passion is to work with Deaf children and their Hearing parents.

6. I would like to start dating again, once I lose some major weight. I'm tired of being treated as the stepping stone/door mat for guys. I wanna be the woman who can kill a guy with a flick of my lashes.

7. Maybe once I reach my goal weight, I can..................

My favorite Poem...

by Bettie B. Youngs

I keep my paint brush with me
Wherever I may go,
In case I need to cover up
So the real me doesn't show.
I'm so afraid to show you me,
Afraid of what you'll do - that
You might laugh or say mean things.
I'm afraid I might lose you.
I'd like to remove all my paint coats
To show you the real, true me,
But I want you to accept what you see.
So if you'll be patient and close your eyes,
I'll strip off all my coats real slow.
Please understand how much it hurts
To let the real me show.
Now my coats are all stripped off.
I feel naked, bare and cold,
And if you still love me with all you see,
You are my friend, pure as gold.
I need to save my paint brush, though,
And hold it in my hand,
I want to keep it handy
In case somebody doesn't understand.
So please protect me, my dear friend
And thanks for loving me true,
But please let me keep my paint brush with me
Until I love me, too.

Personal Information:
I'm Cyndy M-.

I live in Texas, not by choice. Believe me, If I had a choice in where I live, it would be some place that actually had all 4 seasons and did not require an ac unit, ceiling fans in every room, air purifier fans in every room and rotating fans for when the temp gets over 115 degrees!

I love to travel, read, knit, make cards and working on my web pages.

I hate scammers, lazy people, beggars, and creeps/pervs.

Other Information:
I admit it, I'm a fluffy girl.

I enjoy signing with Deaf people.

I live for adventures.

By nature, Gemini isn't a "fat" sign, since she is to active and really doesn't want to be slowed down. Exercise for Gemini needs to have something mental involved as she gets bored very quickly. She should be part of a class as she loves to have friends around her. Gemini is most often the "baby' in the family and born to a father who is well respected in the community. She grows up fast as she needs to keep up with the older kids. She learns to talk early to express her ideas. Her health issues are her nerves, injury to her shoulders, collar bone, hands and lungs. She should never smoke. She gets along with Libra, Aquarius, Leo, Aries and Sagittarius. She should avoid controlling Scorpio as she doesn't want to be tied down. She does well working at a job where she can talk, such as a 911 Operator or teacher. She will be young when she is old.

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.
