Making a change for the better

A year ago I had a scare and decided that I needed to make a change in my life. I was over 320 lbs and I decided that I was done being fat and out of shape. That I was done sitting on the sidelines and watch other people have fun. I made adjustments to my diet and to my activity level and lost 50 lbs in a year. But I started to lose that spark that got me moving to lose the weight. Then I found Spark people and then went on vacation. I am now ready to pick it up and continue on this journey! ...

emoticon Happy Birthday, DONE GIRL


In Virgo the Sun is orderly and thoughtful. With the Sun in Virgo you are predisposed to be hardworking, conscientious, and well-organized. Modest, discriminating and thorough, everything you do, you do well. Practical and down to earth, you are a diligent worker with a competent, discriminating intellect. You are highly analytical and exacting, especially adapted to handling projects with painstaking perfection. Thus, you are fond of good workmanship and the utmost in quality. You are dependable because your approach is always one based on common sense and a realistic and analytical assessment of the problem.
The Virgo child is born to a mother who isn't happy with the money the father makes and she is turned off romantically to him and she becomes very critical. He is a good but somewhat passive man. The Virgo child learned to be critical to "get them before they get me." The child is shy by nature and likes to work behind the person who is the leader. Virgo makes a good accountant, nurse or teacher as they like to set the standard for others to follow. Their health issue is their intestines.
You give much attention to detail, but you can carry this to extremes, becoming fussy and critical, sometimes interfering. Large-scale projects can overwhelm you because of your insistence on perfection. Unless you can deliver such quality, you may become frustrated and discouraged. There is always the tendency and danger with Virgo that the big picture idea will be missed in search of minute details. You expect yourself and everyone around you to be perfect, often setting yourself up for disappointment. Your outlook is too negative and picky sometimes.
Modest and unassuming, you are usually content to live in the background. Your attitude, at times, can become puritanical and prudish. You consider yourself an ordinary person, and you are never given to any airs of pretentiousness or showing off. There may be a tendency for you to see your role as one of service and "behind the scenes" support activity.
You have a serious attitude toward refining your mind and acquiring knowledge. With your highly varied interests, you can gain a remarkable amount of data about different subjects. You instinctively know that you must grasp all parts before you can fully understand the whole. Systematizing and detail organization are your strengths. You are idealistic, but always practical and reasonable. You're not likely to make general statements based on too few facts.
You may be somewhat health conscious, for you have an instinctive sense of balance in diet. You're very sensible in taking care of your health, and for that matter, the health of others. Often, the Virgo becomes exceptionally neat and orderly, even a bit neurotic about cleanliness. You're likely to be susceptible to stress related problems because you do tend to worry too much.
