This was me a few years ago before I lost 60 lbs.
We are all like snowflakes, unique and different and beautiful in our own way!
A great year in 2015 and now a New Year lies ahead....New goals, New adventures! Happy 2016 y'all!
I've come to the point in my life I want more, I want to live my life, not just muddle my way through it. I want to be in control of my emotions and what goes in my mouth. I want my weight to be at a healthy level and I want to be DONE being the fat girl~
UPDATE - 1/7/2014 - My goal in 2013 was to end the year weighing less than I did at the beginning of the year. During the year I lost another 45 lbs. but again, fell off the wagon in the fall and holidays, but the good thing is I ended the year 20 lbs. less than what I started with. So this year I plan to be down again at the end of the year. When I look at pictures of myself from 3 years ago, I can see a huge difference!
Update *1/16/13* - In 2012 I lost (with SP's help) 50 lbs. I did gain some back during the fall through the holidays, but at least I started out 2013 less than I was a year ago. Now it's time to get down to business. My goal is to lose 100 lbs. this year. I plan to use any tool I can to stay focused to reach my goals. I've already made changes in my life. One being to rid or remove negative or drama thriving people in my life. I realized that these type of people were not supportive and were draining my energy and my positive thoughts. I have made, and will continue to make changes in my life. I have dreams and want to achieve those dreams and realized if I want a different outcome in my life, I can't continue to do the same things, in the same way over and over and expect a different result. So 2013 I'm going to take you by storm and I get excited thinking about what this year has in store for me!
Update *12/27/2011* - Since I've been back on SP (Oct. 2011) I've re-lost 25 lbs. I'm looking forward to a New Year and a New Me in 2012. Next short term goal - to lose the next 25 lbs. by April 1, 2012.
To become fit and lean again. I know I need to lose over 100 lbs. but I'm not sure exactly what my goal weight should be. I just want to feel good, have plenty of energy and be able to do the things I want to do without my weight holding me back.
I follow the South Beach Program (AKA Life Style Program), I keep a food journal and workout 3-4 days a week.
I try to surround myself with positive people that have similar goals.
I am a Christian, southern woman, loyal friend, hard worker, honest and love life. I live north of Atlanta GA.
I have 2 grown children that are married, 4 wonderful grandchildren and love spending time with them whenever possible.
I would like to one day raft the Grand Canyon! Love to camp, spend time on the lake or hike. Love going to the beach in the summer and the mountains in the fall and winter. Thankfully both are within a few hours drive.
I'm a positive person and choose to surround myself with positive people that have similar goals.
"Aspire to inspire before you expire" is my favorite quote.
Thanks for the blog comment. I've definitely had my share of down falls, I should be a genius by now if had actually learned from each one! Hoping 2016 can be a much better year than 2015 was! Happy New Year!

Happy Belated DONE GIRL Birthday
Those born on the Virgo-Libra cusp enjoy beauty and all things sensual. They may find themselves drawn to the arts, attractive people, and precious objects or wish to make themselves and their surroundings more pleasing to the eye. They have a great mind for details, and do a terrific job running a business or planning a large gathering because of this talent.
Virgo-Libra may be conflicted in some areas. While both signs Virgo and Libra are concerned with taste and aesthetics, they can lack in emotional or intuitive areas. They may find that what is pretty on the outside isn't so nice on the inside. Ultimately to be happy, they need to make the inside beautiful, too.
If they want to succeed, they should stop being so concerned with appearances. They should keep their search for beauty alive, and try to keep from becoming compulsive or cynical. They should not neglect their spirituality or get too caught up in materialism.
Virgo-Libra is responsible and they attempt to be as fair as possible. They are good team workers, but they can lack self-confidence. They are polite and open-minded, but they love a good debate. Kind and considerate, they rarely show their anger in public. Instead, they may use some subtle way to get even.
Virgo-Libra is health-conscious, which helps them take good care of themselves and their children. They like to exercise, though they do have a definite lazy streak. Think of the cat, stretched out in the sunny patch on the sofa: that is Virgo-Libra. Exercise is more appealing when they can socialize at the same time.
In love, those born on the Virgo-Libra cusp are romantic, devoted and playful. They pick up the important little details that delight their partner. They want a peaceful, harmonious relationship. They can see all sides of a situation which can make them very just, but can prove maddening to those around them at times.
They may have issues with being satisfied. No matter how good something is, they can still see flaws. If something is imperfect, they are inclined to get rid of it. Tiny flaws will eat at them until they can get them fixed.
Persons born on the cusp of Virgo-Libra are practical, hard working, diligent, meticulous, attractive, logical, charming, shy, modest, efficient, romantic, devoted and polite. They can also be unfair, aloof, easily influenced, self-indulgent, fussy, insecure, have hypochondriac tendencies and indecisive. The Cusp of Beauty sounds pleasant, but it can be a harsh taskmaster.
They love nature and their feet are firmly grounded. Their heads are still way up in the air, though. They may be artistic, or be able to design their home in the most aesthetic styles. They like science.
