* Always Radiate Sunshine *

Well, my name is Sarah. I am a 23-year old college student. I received my BS of Animal Science in December 2010 and will graduate in May 2015 as a veterinarian.

I've always been a bit on the heavy side but my weigh has slowly crept up. Back in 2010 I found spark and lost 20 pounds in a few months. I was happy and healthier. Then I let school, my excuses and bad habits get in the way.

Well, my name is Sarah. I am a 23-year old college student. I received my BS of Animal Science in December 2010 and will graduate in May 2015 as a veterinarian.

I've always been a bit on the heavy side but my weigh has slowly crept up. Back in 2010 I found spark and lost 20 pounds in a few months. I was happy and healthier. Then I let school, my excuses and bad habits get in the way.

In 2011, I worked at a horse farm in Kentucky and found myself down to 213lbs. It was the smallest I could ever remember. Then once again: school, excuses and more bad habits led my weigh to right back to the beginning.

I am trying to get on track this summer and build healthy so that when classes start this fall (supposedly my most difficult semester) I can't derail. I am committed to losing weight to be healthier and to be more fit. Heart disease runs in the men in my family and I want to make sure that it doesn't happen to me.

My eventual goal is to weigh 160 but I am changing my goals to go in increments as to not freak myself out.

Hopefully you all are progressing in your goals and I would love any words of encouragement or advice you could give me.

This is the best day of the year for you to begin anew. Start NOW to be what you want as you have the energy of your birth sun to motivate you.
Persons born on the Leo-Virgo cusp can either be a raging extrovert or very secretive. While this appears to be opposite, it is in fact part of the same thing. One can't reveal something unless it has been hidden. They have a good sense of timing. They have an innate sense of when to speak and when to keep quiet. This talent can be used to manipulate, wound or dominate others when needed.
Leo-Virgo needs to let people really get to know them. Hiding away won't get them the recognition they long for. They may end up keeping secrets from themselves if they are not cautious. They need to let others into their lives to share their feelings and experiences.
Decisive and direct, Leo-Virgo is sure they will succeed. They can exaggerate or overreact sometimes, but they are positive for the most part. They have a natural stubborn streak that prevents them from giving up on a hard task. They are cheerful and warm-hearted. They can be very selective and discriminating when needed. They make excellent students, and make sensible business decisions. Extravagant promises leave them skeptical. They do love taking risks, though. Gambling may be fun for them.
Individuals born on the Leo-Virgo cusp are health conscious and very concerned with nutrition and hygiene. This helps them take good care of themselves, both mentally and physically. They like to play in groups. This may take the form of team sports or games. Like everything else, they strive to achieve perfection in their leisure activities.
They can be jealous at times, but they are not really very flirtatious. They are creative and pay close attention to details. They show their love by doing things for their loved one. They are thoughtful and unique.
This cusp is conflicted by Leo's drama and Virgo's lack of sociability. If they can pull themselves together for a cause they truly believe in, the strengths of both signs come together. They have to believe in what they are doing to let their passion show.

Leo-Virgo is honest, unique, logical, creative, flamboyant, artistic, routine, practical, organized, ambitious, inspiring and dramatic. They like to have fun and are generally optimistic. They may also be stubborn, blunt, quarrelsome, cold, stuck on their own ego and a perfectionist. The Cusp of Exposure can be fun or harsh.
Leo-Virgo is a hard worker and a logical thinker. They are earthy and appreciate what we get from the ground. They are very persuasive, which makes them good lawyers, physicians, and teachers. They are tactful, and don't often offend others. They appreciate the outdoors.
Individuals born on the Leo-Virgo cusp may be very popular, with a crowd of followers all of their own. To create a good balance, they need to fulfill their own needs without losing any of their abilities to give to others. They are strong and tenacious. They may be artistically or musically inclined, and they may enjoy traveling.
