I am a wife and have a 2 year old DS. I like to participate in sports but don't like to exercise, per se. I work part-time and am really into cake decorating, which doesn't help the waistline much either!

I am DONE....being the fat mom!
I am DONE....not being able to shop at any clothing store I want!
I am DONE....living in the would of/could of/should of world of Someday Land!
I am DONE....not being able to wear my wedding band and my engagement ring on the same finger! (I now can wear them both and do every day! Whoo-hoo!)
I am DONE....letting my weight and food dictate my life!

I am a DONE girl--how about you?

Why Do I Want to Lose Weight?
*To fit into all the clothes in my closet and not have to worry
*To wear my wedding and engagement rings everyday--check
*No double chin
*No thighs touching/shorts riding up
*No need to worry about looking pregnant/muffin top
*Be able to tell people my weight without embarrassment
*Be able to minister to other women with weight/esteem issues
*Weigh less than my husband
*Have my husband call me beautiful
*Have my husband consistently physically attracted to me
*Be able to wear lingerie without issues/worries
*Be able to be active with my son as he grows up
*Continue to play sports without major pains/injuries/health concerns
*Keep bp down, keep diabetes away, keep shortness of breath away (BP 112/70--7/21/10)
*Tell people my clothes size without embarrassment
*Find good things at Goodwill and be able to buy them and know they'll fit
*Know that I am seriously considered for leading roles because I "look the part"
*Feel like I fit in with other moms/career women
*Not have to worry that a bad day's eating or a bad meal is "the end of it"
*Not have to struggle with pantihose falling down or not quite getting all the way to the top
*Underwear stays where I put it
*Not have shop in the big girls' section for bras
*Sit in any chair and not have to fear it won't hold
*Not have to buy Q pantihose
*Look like a mother my son can be proud of

What will life look like in the future?
Sports, active w/family, go for runs together and alone, sign up for family run-walks, star in the musical/play, volunteer, don't have to worry most of the time at City Museum (lol)

What would an ideal day look like?
Eating well and not eating just because it's there or I feel guilty or want to horde. Fruits and veggies naturally a part of the menu. Constantly trying new healthy options. Keep portion sizes in mind. Still enjoying foods but in moderation. Feels good to get up in the morning and feels good to lie down at night.

What personal values do I want to express daily?
Continued love and devotion to family, volunteering, SAHM, love life and being active, going around town--sharing things with my DS, ability to explore

What else needs to change?
I can be beautiful on the inside and let that reflect to the outside without the outside reflecting the inside. Increased confidence is not dependent on the scale. Being active starts now. Stop finding comfort in food. Stop looking to food to satisfy. Stop allowing what I think of my weight to dictate what other people must think about me. Don't let other things "go" just because I'm not happy with how I look. I can be overweight and still be hot!

    Virgo is a good sign for a woman to be, since she is organized, detailed and willing to do the "dirty work" since she works behind the scenes making the "boss" or "partner" look good. Virgo doesn't mind doing the "small stuff' because that is most often where errors happen.
    The Virgo child is born to a mother who wasn't happy with the money the father made, so she is very critical so the Virgo child is a very sensitive, shy child. Virgo holds in her feelings and only criticizes others because she wants to "get them before they get me." It is a protection to her gentle nature. She is a highly sensitive person who dislikes over-stimulation and needs her "down time." Her brain is always "on" and she needs to find a way to relax. She is very good at math and can make a good teacher or nurse.
    She gets along well with Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces. With another Virgo she can try to out-do and over-tax herself.

    She can certainly have a problem with being obese, but it is NOT her nature, since it makes her "out of sorts" as she wants to do things right. Her concern is with health and fitness and she doesn't want others to criticize what she looks like. So, Virgo can certainly be at a fit weight if she WANTS to do the work. It is all up to her. She loves to show others how to live right.
    She can pick a man beneath her and try to "change" him, but this never works as he will resent her efforts. She often goes after the "bad boy" to show other women that SHE can get him, but she regrets it later as she wants loyalty and he will cheat. She doesn't like being made a fool of, but she can fool herself as she can be fickle.

    The symbol for Virgo is the Virgin, denoting the puritanical demeanor usually common to those of this sign.
    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.
    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.
