My name is Jeanne, I am 36 years old, mom of two wonderful boys and love to help others. I have struggled with my weight my whole life. When I graduated high school I weighed 250lbs, after having 2 children and 15 years of marriage I hit my heaviest weight of 320lbs. I have tried numerous times to lose weight using different diets and plans. I would lose 5lbs and then give up because I felt like I was working super hard and having no real results.
I decided to have the lap-band surgery in February 2012 and lost 70lbs in about 8 months. I was so proud of myself and was doing such a great job but then stress got the best of me and I started gaining weight back. I have gained about 20lbs back and am not happy with myself again. I find that when I get stressed I tend to do harmful things to my body such as eat things I am not supposed to, drink alcohol or smoke.
I have decided that I need/want to lose weight and change my lifestyle, not only for myself but for my children as well. Although my children are very active, my oldest struggles with his weight as well (which I blame myself for) and I want to be able to help him on his new journey (he is also trying to lose weight, he is 17 and weighs 253lbs) and try to teach him better eating habits.
I want to be there for my children and participate in their life more not just watch from the sidelines. I want to feel better about myself and do things I have either never been able to do or things that I used to do that I am unable to do now because of my weight.
So this is a little bit about me in a nutshell. I look forward to this new journey and hope to meet some wonderful people along the way that can help to inspire and encourage me when I need it. Feel free to say hello as I am very friendly and love talking to people. :)
Feel better about myself

Happy Birthday, DONE GIRL
The Gemini-Cancer Cusp is inspired. It doesn't matter if this is made known in public or not. This cusp combination is highly devoted to those they love and they offer their care and compassion to their families, their patients, clients and anyone else they work with in any capacity. They are self-effacing and don't put themselves forward for praise. They are the kind of people that their goodness just shines from within.
Gemini-Cancer may conflict between their logic and emotions. They have the ability to find inspiration in the most ordinary of things. They do have a problem feeling complete unless they have love, romance and family.
Gemini-Cancer needs to work on some things to be successful. First, they need to keep themselves from getting lost in ecstatic experiences. They may have difficulty finding themselves again. Repressing their feelings is a mistake. Destructive emotions can tear them apart; they need to learn how to deal with them and make them more positive.
Gemini-Cancer keeps close ties with their families. They are light-hearted and act young, no matter what their age. They are good with food and entertaining. They can be flirtatious, playful, romantic and caring. They have the ability to blend conversational and intellectual skills. They can empathize with their loved ones and help them work through their issues.
Gemini-Cancer loves to be home. It is their little corner of the universe where they feel secure and happy. They may be reckless at times; and stay to themselves at others when they feel vulnerable. They are humorous, intelligent, sociable, graceful, loving, cheerful, affectionate, opinionated, seductive, friendly, honest, attractive, spontaneous, flirtatious, loyal, jealous, detached, clumsy, restless, inconsistent, manipulative, and calculating. The Cusp of Magic somehow manages to blend all these attributes into a charming, ethereal being.
Individuals born on the Gemini-Cancer cusp are usually fond of children, but may not be able to maintain a marriage because their heart is so easily captured by another. It seems like someone always manages to pick up the pieces when they fail, no matter what realm their endeavor was in. They have magnetic personalities; they are the light bulb around which flutters the hapless moths. They are tolerant of others. They may become over-opinionated.
They may enjoy activities such as genealogy, history, archeology and other related topics. They are always curious and active. They can brighten up family get-togethers. They are a bit sensitive emotionally, so they may have sudden ups and downs to contend with. Moodiness can be a problem at times. They do like solitude at times
