Comfortable in my skin. Dauntless in my commitment.

It's time to let the svelte woman out. I am ready to be the person outside that I am inside. I am tired of hiding behind excess weight. Look out world. Here I come bravely and fearlessly rushing towards my goal.

My Goals:
A major goal is to be honest about my portion sizes. Portion control is hard. Food is really good. I know that at around 180 I look thin because I am tall. So that's my goal weight, but more importantly I want to wear a size 12 women's jeans. Whatever weight that equals will be great too!

My Program:
I walk, hike, bike, etc Whatever I can do with my daughter mostly. I also work 10 hour shifts so I do the stair stepper, jump rope, do my SparkPeople strength at my desk. I also do the 30 day shred DVD by Jillian Michaels. I found it on youtube broken down into levels and parts. Very easy for a go to aerobic workout.

emoticon DONE GIRL, we are singing your song. Happy BELATED Birthday. emoticon Start fresh today as it is your strongest day of the year.

The Gemini girl is often the "baby" of the family, so she learns quickly from the others. She talks early and loves ideas. She is born to a father who is well respected in the community, but he may not have time for her like she'd want. She gets along with Libra, Aquarius, Sagittarius, Leo and Aries. She should avoid silent, secretive Scorpio as she tells all she knows and wants the same in return. Gemini isn't a "fat" sign, but she needs to take care of her nerves as they can be an issue and she can turn to food. Her hands, arms, shoulders and lungs are her health areas to watch.

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.

The Gemini child is born to a father who is well respected in the community. She is usually the "baby" of the family and as such she gets to grow up fast and she learns to talk early. There is always someone around for her to "talk" with and so ideas become important to her. She has a smart mind and her biggest problem is staying focused on one issue. She often has two of things, and that can be two careers as well as two marriages, etc. She loves change. She isn't a fat person by nature as she is to active. She has to much nervous energy to just sit around. She makes a good teacher and loves languages. She must watch out for injuries to her hands and lungs. She should never smoke. Her best friends are Libra, Aquarius, Sagittarius, Aries and Leo.
