Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
I AM 28 YRS OLD I HAVE STRUGGLED WITH MY WEIGHT SINCE I WAS AN INFANT WELL CONSIDERING THAT I WAS CONSIDERED A PREMIE AT 9LBS 7OZ I KNOW YOUR THINKING "WHAT"! BUT IT IS TRUE AND FROM THAT DAY FORWARD MY WEIGHT HAS ALWAYS BEEN A ISSUE I HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING BECOMING MORE ACTIVE PLAYING SPORTS, RICHARD SIMMONS, MEDICAL WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAMS, WEIGHTWATCHERS, ATKINS THE LIST GOES ON AND ON. I FOUND OUT ABOUT SPARK PEOPLE THROUGH A FRIEND AND BELIEVE ME IT HAS BEEN A GOD SEND. WHO WOULD OF KNEW THAT THERE WAS A WEB SITE OUT THERE FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE TRYING TO REACH THAT SAME GOAL. WHETHER IT BE 10, 20, 50, OR 100 LBS WE ARE ALL WORKING TOWARDS A HEALTHIER LIFE.
SINCE I HAVE STARTED SPARKPEOPLE THERE HAS BEEN MANY CHANGES THAT HAS TAKEN PLACE IN MY LIFE GOOD, BAD, AND UNCERTAIN. BUT WHAT I CAN SAY IS THAT I HAVE A WONDERFUL SUPPORT GROUP THAT WILL HELP ME MAKE IT THROUGH IT ALL.
ON SATURDAY MARCH 15 I WENT A STEP FURTHER WITH MY WEIGHT LOSS AMBITION AND I DECIDED TO FOCUS ON THESE THREE WORDS THAT I HAVE BEEN VERY INCONSISTENT WITH OVER MY LIFE TIME. BE IT IN MY WEIGHT, MY RELATIONSHIPS, SCHOOL, OR WORK. SO ON THE FRONT OF MY REFRIGERATOR ON A BIG PIECE OF PAPER I WROTE IN BIG LETTERS " COMMITTMENT DEDICATION PERSERVERANCE" BECAUE RIGHT NOW WHERE I AM IN LIFE I NEED THESE THREE WORDS TO HELP ME STAY FOCUSED TO REACH MY GOAL, AND NOT JUST WEIGHT LOSS BUT JUST WHAT EVER GOALS AND DREAMS THAT I SET FOR MYSELF WHETHER IT BE BIG OR SMALL. 2008 IS MY YEAR FOR ALL SUCCESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
MY FIRST GOAL IS TO GET UNDER 300LBS. THEN ONCE I HIT THAT FIRST GOAL THEN WE WILL GO FROM THERE. GETTING UNDER 300LBS WOULD BE A MAJOR MILESTONE BECAUSE I ALWAYS GET SO CLOSE AND THEN I SELF SABOTAGE.
MY PROGRAM IS: DRINK 64OZ OR MORE OF WATER A DAY. TO HIT THE GYM AT LEAST 5-6X A WEEK GETTING IN AT LEAST TWO DAYS OF STRENGTH TRAINING AND 3-4 DAYS OF CARDIO. A MINIMUM OF 45-60MIN OF CARDIO AND A MINUMUM OF 30MINS OF STRENGTH TRAINING BECAUSE I DO NOT WANT TO HAVE SAGGY SKIN AT ALL BECAUSE I DO NOT HAVE ANY MONEY TO AFFORD LIPO. SO I AM DOING IT OLD SCHOOL.
I AM LOOKING FOR LIFE TIME CHANGES AND NOT QUICK FIXES.

Happy belated Birthday, DONE GIRL
The Sagittarius girl was probably a Tomboy growing up although she is very attractive. She should love sports & be good at it, as she really wanted to be like her Dad. She didn't really know what he did, but she wanted to be outside with him. She can keep house, but really isn't cut out to do housework as she has a very sharp mind that is best put to use with higher education & travel. But, she certainly can be fat, since JUPITER, her ruler expands everything and she loves to entertain & enjoy food. She does have a blunt mouth, but is never like Scorpio with sarcastic comments, but just being honest. The saying "Straight from the horse's mouth" applies to her. She tells it like it is. She is a person full of energy & loves to start projects, but she just needs to follow through. This goes for her weight loss as she has the determination if she wants to do it. Dad would be proud!!
The Sagittarius Sun Sign has an honest, optimistic and independent personality. They are passionate about justice and love adventure and travel. They are lucky in many aspects of life. They love freedom, intellectual stimulation and their own space. Every day is a reason for a new adventure. Self-confident, positive and enthusiastic, they’re a resource of information. Restless at times, they risk jeopardizing their relationships if they let it rule their lives.
Sagittarius Sun Signs like to find people to join in athletic as well as intellectual pursuits. If you want a relationship with a Sagittarius Sun Sign, don't smother them. They will run far away from clinging vines. In relationships, they are sincere, straightforward and passionate. They are faithful if all their needs are met, but that annoying restlessness can create distance, both physically and mentally. Commitment is challenging due to this restless nature. They may find it difficult to be affectionate if they are more mental than emotional. This dual nature found in this Sign can also create difficulty between career and family life.
Emotionally, they need a lot of freedom. They may spend their lives flitting from one affair to another, without ever finding meaning. On occasion they may also develop a sort of fanaticism when it comes to religion. Luckily, most people born under the Sign of the Centaur are fair and concerned about others. They are usually charming, easy going, and friendly. They are honest… sometimes a little too honest.
When they get angry, watch out; they know exactly what to say to hurt you most. They are very forgiving, so if they get angry with you, hopefully you will forgive them as well. This Sign has very little diplomacy, so if you want their opinion, you'll definitely get it!
Sagittarius Sun Signs are excellent organizers. They think fast and follow their intuition. Strong-willed, they are usually successful at any project they take on. They may end up writing books, making films or somehow influencing the world in some other way. They are enthusiastic and upbeat, and want their messages to be that way, too. They often choose to be journalists, teachers, lecturers, politicians, public relations workers, lawyers, judges, philosophers or religious leaders. If a job requires travel, it is appealing to them. Archaeologists, travel agents, traveling salesmen or jobs in the gambling industry offer a bit of excitement. Jobs that are involved with sports are also alluring, especially if they have to do with horses, cars or aircraft.
Sagittarius Sun Signs love sports. They are usually good at any they try their hand at. They are exceptionally good with horses. Regular exercise is needed to spend some of that boundless energy they have. They should be careful however… they may get hurt if they take too many risks. They love to travel… absolutely anywhere. Exotic locations, rugged locations or the beach, they just like to be on the move and see something new.
On the negative side, the Sagittarius Sun Sign can be domineering, inconsiderate and exacting. They may be quick to anger or impatient. Their private lives can be extravagant, vulgar and frivolous. On the positive side, however, they can be generous, caring and inventive.
