It's About Time

My profile shows a Sparkpeople Start Date of 07/11/07 but believe me when I say that there was no Sparking going on until the summer of 2009. That was when I created this page: I was 52 and I'd had enough of shopping in the fat-lady stores. So, I tried to walk 10,000 steps each day and attempted to make intelligent food choices.

Now it's July 2011: I'm 54 and I'm maintaining a 60-65 lb weight loss. I intend to stay this weight by living a Spark-inspired lifestyle. I may be ...

It was difficult to keep Sparking, food-wise and exercise-wise in the winter, (even with Charlie the Wonder Dog's daily encouragement) but the good weather is here now and I'm looking forward to increased daily physical activity.

I don't want to be embarrassed by my bulk anymore. I want to get to a weight where I can look at my whole body in the mirror (and not just neck-up) without wincing. I will never again wear clothing in a size that includes an X.

My Program:
Eat More Healthy Food, Eat Less Junk.
Walk More, Lounge Less.

emoticon Happy BELATED Birthday, DONE GIRL emoticon

The Aquarian girl is born an isolated only child in some way where she has a lot of attention from adults and isn't expected to "act like a little kid". As a result she becomes a very smart child and is expected to be a "little adult." This can make her feel separate from other kids and give her stress. But Aquarius isn't a "fat" sign as she has lots of energy. (DENISE AUSTIN is an Aquarian.) Aquarius makes a great teacher and loves to start new things that are different. Libra, Sagittarius, Aries, Leo and Gemini are great people to get along with. The Aquarius woman can be all she want to be, as she can deal with change.

In Aquarius the Sun is eccentric and original. You're apt to be a superb thinker, and your ideas are frequently advanced, no matter what field of profession you select. Often, your unique approaches to problem solving are viewed as too radical and unworkable, but you prefer to think of them as advanced and progressive instead. Unconventional and outspoken, you see your role as the rebel and the person who rejects worn out traditions and old ways of operating. You like to be with those ushering in the new order and fostering advanced thinking.
Paradoxically, you're a good team player, but one who must have personal freedom. You don't like to feel fenced in. While you're headstrong and inflexible in your ways, you can work very effectively within a large group. You have complete respect for the sound ideas put forward by others. You are aloof and detached, and your concerns are directed toward society rather than to the problems of any one person. You are somewhat impersonal most of the time. You're more emotionally involved with your work than you are with people. You can be highly critical and demanding in a position of authority. Nonetheless, you are a strong leader and organizer. You have a deep understanding of human nature, but often you lack sensitivity to the emotional content of many situations.
You thrive on change and managing the unexpected. Always ahead of your time, you are viewed by everyone as being different and unusual, labels you don't mind accepting. You pride yourself on your ability to find a better way of doing the job. Sometimes you lack follow through, and you always dislike routine. You like to take chances and keep everything stirred up. Occasionally, you enjoy antagonizing people in positions of authority, and stimulating a good argument now and then. You don't mind that you are seen as a bit unusual, in fact, you may encourage this image.
Equality, freedom and fairness are all important issues for you. You strongly subscribe to the doctrine that all people are created equal and should have the same rights and opportunities. In this regard, you are likely to be classified as a progressive and often associated with humanitarian issues and causes. Though you are very involved with such matters, your approach is always somewhat in the abstract, with ideological concepts, the sort that don't usually stem from true emotions. Your approach is often very impersonal and detached.
Friendly and sociable, you may have a wide circle of acquaintances. Friends are very important to you. Intellectually oriented, you are happiest with friends that share common ideas and interests. Strangely, you find it more difficult to cultivate a truly satisfying intimate relationship. This aloofness exists because feelings are rarely expressed outwardly, and you usually seem distant. You resist anything or anyone threatening your independence. emoticon
