Determined to Succeed!

Weight has always been a battle for me and Spark has been a helpful place to keep me focused on my health journey. It does help having others who truly understand how hard this really can be and I love my SP teams and friends!

I went on "Shape Reclaimed" through a Nutritionist in October, 2013 and lost 87 lb. by March, 2014. It quit happening so I went off program mid July, 2014 and am back to doing it the normal way to get the last 40 lb. off. I don't regret the huge jump ...

I went on "Shape Reclaimed" through a Nutritionist in October, 2013 and lost 87 lb. by March, 2014. It quit happening so I went off program mid July, 2014 and am back to doing it the normal way to get the last 40 lb. off. I don't regret the huge jump start I gave my health at all after years of doing the right thing and not having results because my adrenals, thyroid and pituitary weren't working properly.

I have to constantly work at reminding myself that I am worth it as self-esteem was trashed during childhood. I know I am, but the bad stuff is easier to believe sometimes.

In August 2014 I signed back up with the gym I had gone to prior (had to take most of a year off for the Shape program) and committed to time with a trainer 2x/week for six months. Making me a priority in this!

emoticon The Motivator of the Day. What an honor.

emoticon I see you had a birthday. The Virgo girl is born to a mother who wasn't happy with the money the dad made, although he was a good, but passive man. Because there is a lot of criticism in the home, the Virgo child learns to be very self-critical. She is a "highly sensitive person" who is shy and hates loud noises. She makes a good "person behind the scenes" who runs it all smoothly for a leader who gets the credit. She makes a good teacher, nurse, or counselor, as she loves to show others how to live. She can have a weight problem because she turns her feelings in on herself, but she hates to be criticized, so she really needs to be fit and trim to avoid having others look down on her. (Dr. Phil is a Virgo and he loves to show others how they should live.)
Virgos can have problems with their intestines. They get along with Taurus, Pisces, Cancer, Capricorn and another Virgo. The Virgo woman can have a "dark side" in the bedroom, since during the day she appears to be so proper. She will always be frugal with money, and she has few children. If in a relationship, the man tells her he wants a divorce, she won't think twice about walking away as she won't stay where she is not appreciated. Once she ends a relationship, it is over.

Happy Birthday, Janet. My Birthday was 8/25, but this was the first Saturday by teachers could get it together for me.
