Hi everyone! My name is Jessica and I'm 27. I have been overweight since about the third grade and have never been comfortable in my own body. I previously lost 100 pounds from March of 2005 until June of 2006, and then I found out I was pregnant, miscarried and then got pregnant again right away. I have an almost 3 year old son and I somehow managed to gain almost 72 pounds while I was pregnant with him! I feel like I'm starting all over again and it has been tough trying to get my motivation back but I know I need to do this for him as well as myself! I could use all the support that I can get so I joined spark people to try to find it!

Update 5/1/10
I restarted as of Jan 1, 2010 and am down 21.2 pounds. I'd love to be at 180 for my wedding on 9/29/10! We're getting married on St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands and going on a cruise for our honeymoon! I can't wait! I already have my dress picked out and want to lose as much as possible before the middle of August which is the latest that I can have the dress taken in. This is going to be my year!

Update 6/13/2014

I recently had my second child...a girl!....and would love to lose the additional weight that she brought. I also want to have more energy and feel healthier so I can keep up with both of my children, attend graduate school and feel good about myself. Here's to new beginnings!

    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.
