Hi my name is Melanie Louise Jackson i used 2 be a member of Sparkpeople b4 but i lost all my information & am determined 2 get back on track (health wise) & wud like 2 make sum new friends or try & find my old friends again as i dont have a computer @ home yet am using the 1 in the Library in my hometown of Grantham Lincolnshire.

I have a luvly caring family, Dad (John who died in 2002 of Cancer) Mum (Mary) who lives in Bitchfield where i used to live years ago, & 1 Sister (Helen), who is 2 years younger than me, & who got engaged last year to a luvly guy called Johnny Tudor, who is perfect for Helen cos they both look after each other & work damn hard, there house is always kept in perfect condition, they live near me in Grantham.

I think what i will do instead of buying, new clothes, for a treat, i will buy sum new furniture 4 my flat, i started this project last year,
this is a list of what i have in my living room so far, as follows,

Front Room/Living Room
Left hand side - my (Body Right Hand Side).
5 x side tables
3 x 3 tier corner shelf racks,
1 x 4 tier shelving unit,

Right hand side - my (Body Left Hand Side).
2 x side tables,

I have just re - started this project, again this year, only this time its in my bedroom, again this is a list of what i have in my bedroom, so far as follows,

Dining Room/Bedroom
Left hand side - my (Body Right Hand Side).
2 x 3 tier corner shelf rack,
1 x side table (so far),

Right hand side - my (Body Left Hand Side).

Top Hall Landing
Left Hand Side - my (Body Right Hand Side)
2 x 3 tier corner shelf racks,

Bottom Hall Landing

Eventually (funds willing), i wud like to get my whole flat, kitted out with furniture + a carpet 4 my spare bedroom, so that then i can move into my Spare Bedroom (Main Bedroom) & make my Main Bedroom (Dining Room) im currently trying to save up the money to do this, but once ive paid my bills & bought my shopping, i never seem to have any spare money left over to put away in a jar.

When you get to know me properly, i am a really nice person, i am very very good with my hands, (i can put things together).

I like listening to music from '1960s - present day', of which i have many different cds.

I also like listening to music on my cassette tapes too, of which i have many different cassette tapes too, (sum where given to me by my late Dad), sum of which i have bought myself.

I also like watching films from different genres which include the following 'Comedy, Drama, Horror, Musicals, Real Life Stories made into Films, Romance, Sci Fi, & War', most of which i am buying /have managed to get on dvd already.

I also like watching films from different genres which include the following 'Comedy, Drama, Horror, Musicals, Romance, Sci Fi, & War', most of which i am buying/have managed to get on VHS Video already.

I have already decided that come next year on the 1st January 2012, (01/01/2012), when i carry on with my Diet/Weight Loss Programme.

When i go to pay my bills/go food/gocery shopping, that i will ''NOT'', & i do mean this sincerely, ''NOT'', be buying any ''BISCUITS'', ''CAKES'', ''CHEESE'', ''CHOCOLATE'', ''CRISPS'', ''ICE CREAM'', ''PORK PIES'', ''QUICHE'', ''SAUSAGE ROLLS''.

As these particular items are which i usually buy for my (''DIET'' : ''DAY OFF''), & when i eat these particular items, they make me feel very, very ''SICK''.

I no longer go to Lloyds Pharmacy to be weighed, instead i now go to Boots (Chemist), & i use there weighing scales instead.

I have recently, met somebody new a nice Guy called James , we started out as very good friends, (when ever i came Shopping in Town - Grantham, he would smile & flirt with me.

I would respond in the same way back to him, smile & flirt with him 2), we officially started a relationship on Saturday 8th September 2012, (my Birthday Weekend).

I met up with him on my 42nd Birthday Monday 10th September 2012, what i didnt realise then, until i was reminded by my Brother in law to be Johnny Tudor last week.

Was that my Boyfriend James was my extra Birthday present!!!!, this coming weekend Saturday 27th October 2012, James & i will have been together 7 whole weeks!!!!, (young love its bliss).

So i have finally found/got the happiness, that i have truly truly longed for, the Guy of my dreams James Needham!!!!, my Sparkfriends whom i like to call my (Online Family).

What more could a woman like me ask for!!!!.

Unfortunately since i last wrote the above pieces of information down, things have/had taken a turn for the worse in our relationship, & he ended up splitting up/dumping me.

Which was not even my fault what so ever, since things have changed for me, i have now taken a different path 1 which i am very very happy with, i'm still on my Diet, but i'm also trying to get more exercise done, as to get myself even fitter, lol lol lol.

In the street, where i live, i now go 4 daily walks, i start from my Flat, going around the corner where Living Health (Beauty Parlour) etc etc, is & walk right up to the top entrance of New Street, & end up right back at my Flat, again i do this 2wice & it.

Takes me 30 mins in total altogether, i do this every day, also when the warmer weather comes/the Nights/Lights draw out a bit better, i shall be doing this 2wice a day every day, to keep in shape.

The best thing about this, is that i do not think about the past 'nightmare' (you know just exactly who you are James Needham!!!! !!!!), as i have better things to do than think about you lol lol lol lol.

I have found new ways to occupy myself, like Yoga & Pilates, these are helping to strengthen up my Back, (i have ongoing Back problems) etc etc, so i am hoping that the more i do Yoga &.

Pilates, the more it will help strengthen up my Back, so that i will be Pain free at least in my Back, lol lol which in time will make me feel better in myself, at least that is what i hope will happen lol lol.

I have also, (re - started) going, out with my friend, (Jane Hunter) again, her Husband (Robert), just happens to, be my very, very own 'PAIN, IN THE ARSE,' Ex Boyfriend from, years & years, ago!!!! !!!!, lol lol lol, he made a, very very bad, mistake.

Years &, years ago whilst, we were 'seeing each other' (he cheated on, me with his, Ex Girlfriend Jaqui,) so i got, my revenge (, in a good, way!!!!), i poured a, full Glass of, Bacardi & Coke, over him!!!!, the bloody bugger, never hurt me, again i can, tell ya!!!!, lol lol lol.

Since i last came online, i have started to paint, my luvly luvly Flat so far, i have painted the Hall, Sugar Sweet Pink, (Light Pink) & it looks really really good, my next plan is to paint my Bedroom/Dining Room, a Dark Pink, which would look really really good.

I have so many, Wishes & dreams that, i wud like to, achieve + i wud also, like to conquer my, Fears 2 eg going, on an AeroPlane eventually.

Whether i will conquer my Fear, of going on an Aeroplane, is an entirely different matter, as most of you know, i live in a Top Floor Flat, which is very very High up, & as i suffer from Vertigo.

An ongoing (Fear of Heights) etc etc etc, which makes it totally totally, impossible for me to open up, my Big Windows & look outside, & down below !!!! !!!! !!!!.

My Program:
My program (goal) is i try and go for a walk everyday.

My other goal is to go back & re-join the gym again.

The last few times i've been to the gym, i always use the bikes & treadmills.

Personal Information:
My name is Melanie Louise Jackson (nee Large).

I am 43 years of age (Middle Aged) as my Family call me.

I have lived there for 9.5 years, i have no children, i was married before, but it wasnt a happy marriage at all, as what i didn't realise was that my Ex Husband Paul Jackson, suffered from Mental Health Issues.

Cos he became very violent attacking me and it ended up with him throwing a glass at my face, almost blinding me in the process so in the end he walked out after 6 months of marriage.

I am much happier now i'm getting my life back on track (or at least trying to) maybe with your help i can finally be happy.

My Birthday is
10th September 1970.

Which makes me a Virgo.

I like putting things together (eg book shelves, & other pieces of flat pack furniture).

I no longer wish to be the fat/overweight person that i am, inside me there is a skinny person just waiting to be set free.

Other Information:
I like going out to the cinema, reading books, watching dvds & videos & listening to music.

I like going shopping, the shops i go to in the town where i live are as follows

Asda (banned from store at moment)

Bonmarche (Clothes shop)

Morrisons (Supermarket)

Poundland (One stop shop)

Sainsburys (Supermarket)

Wilkinsons

Although i do like popping into charity shops to find sum good bargains (books, cassette tapes, cds, dvds, & videos)

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.
