Been away for a long time. Moved from GA to TN and then my husband got diagnosed with Cancer. I lost him in October of 2018. He always made me feel beautiful and now - I need to get myself healthy for me and my kids. They deserve to have me for a long time. On the road to refiguring out what works for me .. I don't have a lot of time to exercise right now - so I am working on adding steps everyday, and I ordered the body groove dance videos which I look forward to trying. Looking for new spark friends and hoping to find some peace and love life again. (1/29/19)

Mother of 4 girls - and 1 just graduated college, and 1 is still in diapers! My goal is to feel better and be able to play with all my girls - tired of feeling bad and doing nothing about. Turned 40 and want to feel sexy again!
I am from Cumming GA .. and looking for a walking buddy too .. you know what they say .. someone else will keep you motivated to work out!

What I have learned in almost 5 months has changed my life. It is nothing you haven't heard your entire life about what to eat and what it does to your body and to move. I have lost 25 lbs so far, with a goal of 100 lbs total. I have learned that the only person who can motivate you is YOU! You have to want it for yourself, and learn to change the way you think .. it is not just a body transformation, it is a mind transformation. I have made incredible friends - even though I have not met them, they are inspirational and sweet, and generally care about you! If you are just starting your journey - take the time to realize it is YOUR journey, what works for one may not work for you. Today I am DONE!
Done being the fat, funny friend.
Done having people look at me as if I am a leper.
Done being the BIGGEST parent at open house.
Done eating when I am not hungry.
Done smiling through the pain and heartache of not knowing how to change.
Done not loving myself.
Done looking to others for approval.
Done shopping in 'big' stores.
Done not being comfortable in chairs.

I am DONE! Now lets get moving!

    @KAKAKALI4 .


    1: ACCEPT SUPPORT FROM FAMILY AND FRIENDS
    According to your needs, balance time spent with others and time spent alone.
    2: WATCH YOUR DIET, AND MAKE TIME FOR EXERCISE
    Eat healthful food, drink plenty of water, and exercise moderately.
    3: GET PLENTY OF SLEEP
    Recognize that sleep is essential to dealing with the fatigue of grieving.
    4: BE FLEXIBLE
    Since everyone grieves differently, find what works for you.
    5: AVOID SELF-DESTRUCTIVE HABITS
    Avoid the misuse of alcohol or drugs?—which creates more problems than it solves.
    6: BALANCE YOUR TIME
    Alternate periods of grieving with time for socializing and recreation.
    7: KEEP A ROUTINE
    Regain a sense of normalcy by keeping yourself occupied with a good routine.
    8: AVOID MAKING BIG DECISIONS TOO SOON
    If possible, wait a year or more before making big decisions you may later regret.
    9: REMEMBER YOUR LOVED ONE
    Collect pictures and mementos or write in a journal to keep alive your memory of the person who has died.
    10: GET AWAY
    Make time for a change of pace?—even if for just a day or part of a day.
    11: HELP OTHERS
    Renew your sense of purpose by doing things for those who need help, including others affected by the loss of your loved one.
    12: REEVALUATE YOUR PRIORITIES
    Use this opportunity to gain new insights into what truly matters and, as needed, make adjustments to your priorities.

    Realistically, nothing will completely erase the pain you feel. However, many who have lost a loved one can attest that taking positive steps, such as those listed in this article, helped them to find comfort. Of course, this is not a comprehensive list of every possible way to alleviate grief. But if you try some of these suggestions, you may find that they will bring you a welcome measure of relief.

    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.
