I am making progress! 178.2
Festivus Dance night 175!!
Hello EVERYONE! I just want to start of by saying best wishes to everyone on their goals!
My name is Bianca and I am from California. I have been overweight all my life! I can honestly say that I started my first "diet" at the age of six. Everyone woman in my family is overweight or has health issues.
I realized that I want the change it is going to have to start with me, no one is going to make me change my behavior, only I can. I am at the point in my life where I am tired of feeling held back by my weight. I am a beautiful person, and want the outside to match my inside. I have wanted to lose weight for all the wrong reasons, but now I doing it just for me. This is going to be a challenge, but I believe that there is no better feeling the complete a task that you have worked so hard for. This is not just a temporary change that I am doing, but a lifestyle change. It is a new day and a new me!
So far the beginning of the year has not been that well. I have falling of the wagon for a little while and my weight loss has been at a standstill. I have no one to blame but myself, thus I am not dwelling on it that much. I know what I should have done, so time to move on and get back on track! Just needed to get that off my chest.
Since starting my weight lost journey mid-June 2008 I have lost 50lbs. I never imaged that I would lose that much, but always wanted to. My goal is to lose another 40 lbs max, 30 would be nice. I cant even remember weighing 160lbs, and I am only 20 years. At the end of this journey I to be able to say I achieved something that set out to do and wake up one day and not have to worry about my health. No one is stopping me but me from doing this, so here I go!!!
My goals is to healthier and happier! I want to be able to go into any store and be able to buy clothes! It might sound silly but it is has been something that I have wanted since I could remember. I hate having to go to the "fat" people store! I want to be able to fit into a size 8. Overall, I just want to feel and look healthy.
My goals for this year is to lose get to my 160lbs goal and to wear a bathing suit at the beach without being self conscious.

Happy Belated Birthday, DONE GIRL
The VIRGO child is born to a mother who isn't happy with the money the father makes, so the child learns to be very frugal and waste nothing. The child has a critical parent, so the child learn to be critical so "I get them before they get me" but Virgo really is a kind, loving person who doesn't want to hurt others. Virgo is most often a shy child with a highly sensitive nature that dislikes over stimulation and loud noises. The Virgo child's father is often a passive man and the child feels lonely. The mother becomes too concerned with being clean and makes the child feel bad about her body and this carries over into adulthood. Virgo can certainly have a problem with obesity because she turns to food for comfort, but she also can be a teacher of good health. She makes a wonderful nurse. She just needs to learn to make HERSELF her most important client. She's very intelligent but likes to work behind the scenes and she gets along with another Virgo, and Capricorn, Taurus, Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio.
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.
