Shared Fitness Tracker
My entire life, I've fluctuated in weight. When I was in elementary school, I was really thin. I remember praying to God to help me gain weight, but not make me too fat. LOL. God definitely has a sense of humor. In middle school, I gained weight and became somewhat chubby. In my senior year of high school, I lost so much weight on a diet given to my overweight mother that people thought I was anorexic! I was at my best weight in my freshman year of college. After a huge disappointment in the relationship realm amongst other disappointments, I started losing the motivation and from there have consistently struggled with keeping my weight off. It seems so simple, but for some reason I make it complicated. I know it's definitely more than weight loss that I have to conquer. It's more like the emotional eating and using food as a way to cope with the things I don't know how to handle. Life on life's terms.
I'm ready now to begin a new life. A life being DONE with emotional eating. DONE being the victim. And best yet DONE being the proverbial fat girl (Sorry, still don't feel good calling myself FAT lol!!!) For the next couple of months, I will be updating you on my journey to lose 20 lbs and KEEP IT OFF. I will be blogging about mistakes with food, but also about my progress with food and how I deal with life on life's terms. Period.
I weighed myself on June 6, 2010:
What I Need to Remind Myself Of Everyday:
A person's looks does not define who they are as a person. When a person gains or loses weight, it does not make that person better. Ask a woman who's reached her goal weight and still feels like crap.
WHAT I WANT AND DON'T WANT:
I want to feel good, but not because of how I look. Just because my mind and heart are reconciled with my body and it shows.
I don't want to feel like a tourniquet is tied around my stomach while wearing my work pants.
I want to be able to fit in my jeans without having to buy a bigger size.
I don't want to berate myself for having rolls or for not looking like the Shape cover model because that is just living with the mentality that my looks define who I am.
I want to feel comfortable in my own skin. I'm slowly getting there. One day at a time.

Happy Birthday, DONE GIRL We are singing your song.
The Gemini girl is always young throughout her life. She is born to a father who is well respected in the community. Often she is the "baby" of the family and she gets to grow up fast so she can keep up with the older kids. She learns to talk early and have a lot of ideas. She is independent by nature, but should watch for health issues with her hands, shoulders and lungs. She can have problems with her nerves as she worries to much. YOGA will help to relax.
Gemini gets along with Libra, Aquarius, Sagittarius, Leo and Aries.
She makes a good teacher, hairdresser (she loves to talk to people) saleswoman and writer.
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.
