I am currently working on changing my lifestyle. I am overweight and have blamed it on pregnancies for years. Now my youngest child is 9 and the excuse is old.

When I was younger, I always said I did not want to be overweight like many of the people I know. However, here I am weighing more than those people do. I have seen the stress the weight has put on their bodies and the health issues they have had due to that weight. I don't want to go through the same thing.

I have recently noticed my children picking up my same eating habits and immediately want to break these habits. The best way...be an example.

I took a break due to some illness and injuries but am back and ready to go!

I am tired of being fat and the effects it has had on my life.

Those born on the Taurus-Gemini cusp are eternally young. They are energetic, prolific and once they find something that really appeals to them, they do it quite a bit.
They are also versatile. This versatility may cause them to wear themselves out because they try to do too much too frequently. They need to learn to limit themselves to create a balance.
Taurus-Gemini is a born communicator. They love active conversations on just about any topic you can imagine. They do have to be careful not to monopolize the conversation. It is all too easy for them to do.
They may be conflicted about certain things due to their nature. While they want to be earthy and stable, they are drawn to towards more unstable, frenetic behavior. They may not be sensitive to the feelings of others. While they can spend hours debating over their own emotional matters, they may appear rather unsympathetic or detached. They are prone to burning out, both physically and mentally. If they can learn self-discipline, they will be more successful.
Taurus-Gemini needs to keep track of their activity level with great care. They need to learn consistency when rejecting ideas or people. They need to learn how to gentle their approach. Confronting their own insecurities will help them grow. Resting is a good thing from time to time.
Taurus-Gemini can focus too much on money and possessions. They are usually gentle, dependable and tolerant of those around them. At the same time, they can be high strung and scattered. They are entertaining and make loyal friends who are fun to be around. They like to spend time eating good food and enjoying a rousing conversation.
Their strengths are their stability, intellectual and conversational skills and their perseverance. They are good at analyzing challenging ideas and have the ability to communicate those ideas to others. If they can learn to add the variety of Gemini to the dedication of Taurus, they can be very successful.
Broadminded and hardworking, Taurus-Gemini is also expressive, energetic, charming, intelligent, adaptable, shy, practical, mature, gentle, quiet, stable, restless, blunt, scattered, nervous, over-indulgent and changeable. They don't call this the Cusp of Energy for nothing.
Individuals born on the Taurus-Gemini cusp are independent and proud. They are very talented, especially when they learn how to get their inclinations to work together. If they get unhappy, they tend to get lethargic and apathetic. Learning to forgive is a blessing in their life.
They may have interests in art, music, travel or social activities. They attract many friends, though they should be cautious they don't over-commit themselves to too many relationships. They are generous people, who enjoy delving into many things. emoticon
