Updated: July 16, 2012. I have just transitioned to Maintenance as I`ve achieved my goal weight - 160 lbs (I`m six feet tall).

It took me from January to get here but the one thing I`ve learnt from the past is that slow and steady is the way to go. I could not have done ths without the SP site. The trackers - the teams - the encouragement. To anyone just starting out - get into this - immerse yourself - remember that everyone on this site is here for the same reason your are and all want to help each other achieve a healthier lifestyle.

I will continue to use this site to maintain my new lifestyle!

Previous - Jan 2012 - I joined SP in Jan 08 to give me the encouragement I needed to lose weight - it certainly was a great help. I stopped using the site in April 08 - when I went on vacation. In 09 I joined up again but only lasted a week or two. Same again in 2010 and 2011. Now here we are in 2012 and I'm trying once again.

I need to lose weight but I know I can not do it on my own so I'm back to Sparks - more determined than ever. I know I will get the support here that I need to achieve my goals.

    The Virgo child is born to a mother who is not happy with the money the father makes, so the child grows up with a critical parent. Virgo learns to criticize because she wants to "get them first, before they get me." She really is a shy, introverted person, who dislikes loud noises and crude people. She never can tell her mother how she really feels, and her father is most often a passive man, but a good man. She learns to be frugal with money, because she had fear about not having any as a child. She gets along well with Taurus, Capricorn, Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio. She can have health issues with her bowels. She loves to teach others how to live life well. (Dr. Phil is a Virgo.) She has few children, but makes a good mother who keeps her children on the straight and narrow. If she is done wrong in love she will leave and not think about looking back. When she is over with a relationship, it is over. She won't be made a fool of twice.
    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.
