STILL a work in progress!!! October 4, 2014
Shared Fitness Tracker
Update I guess 1/19/2016
It's still day by day! I'm not quite in my groove just yet. It's only been about a week since I picked back up. But I had a light bulb go off earlier as I was getting dressed to jam out....I have spent my entire adult like trying to lose weight!!=. I Will be 37 this year! I think it's about time I stop taking these days for granted and change my LIFE & MINDSET for the betterment of my family & myself. I want to be my most healthiest by the time I am 40, but I will take it sooner if need be lol. Having said that: Conquer the mind, Conquer the body is my ULTIMATE GOAL!!
Now everytime I try to update my page, the dang on computer seems to go haywire and loses all my stuff. So I am going to try this once again and make this short (as I am) and sweet ( another great character of mine as well) and just pray for the best!
This is like my 2nd go round with my weight and I refuse to let it get to 3 or even 15! I've been knocked down several times, but I have also been told that, "if you don't quit, you can't lose." So with that in mind; I WILL, I CAN, HELL YEAH!!!! Say it with me now on the count of three: 1, 2, 3- I WILL, I CAN, HELL YEAH!!! Just a little chant I learned from the GOYAAM team. I have been taken for a spin, "up a hill and down a hill" as my toddlers say while running around the coffee table. However; I don't plan on quitting no time soon, no matter how many times I lose my momentum! I'm a DONE girl now who may still have low self esteem, still hates trying on clothes-even the ones I make. But I can and I will...well you know the rest!!
MY BODY IS THE MOST PRECIOUS GIFT I HAVE EVER RECEIVED. I WILL LOVE, CHERISH, HONOR, AND RESPECT IT 100% AT ALL TIMES. NO MATTER WHAT!!!!!

Hey all welcome newcomers and greetings to my wonderful sparkpeople friends that I have already met and enjoy so much. Well I had to and recommitt myself to being the smart, funny, loving, GOD fearing, beautiful, mother and superwoman that I am. I fell off big time, but now I am back with a vengence to be healthier. I've had some life changing moments since I started SP and expect there will be more, but I know that I can handle it and I will. Where there is a will, there is most certainly a way and I am a firm believer in that. I restarted my journey last wk, but I am just now getting around to updating my page. So once again, I'm off and I WILL do this. I CAN do this!!!! It is still my time to shine. Slow and steady wins the race and I am willing to go the distance!!!!!
Trying to feel great in 2008!!!! I started this journey back in October with little success. But I am determined to get back into the swing of things and start over by looking and feeling great this year. This is my time to shine and I will do it well with the help of GOD, the wonderful people of sparkpeople.com, and all the friends and fans I have incorporated thus far!!!!!!

Happy Birthday DONE GIRL
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.
The Gemini child is most often born to a father who is well respected in the community. Gemini is often the baby in the family and thus grows up fast learning to talk early in order to keep up with the older kids. Gemini gets along with Libra, Aquarius, Leo, Aries and Sagittarius.
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.
Gemini can have problems with their nerves and experience anxiety or depression. They should never smoke as their lungs are their health area of concern. Gemini can have injury to their shoulders and hands. Since they love to be active they must learn to watch and take caution.
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.
