I really do want to lose weight and restart my life after losing my husband. My Hubby was 33 y/o when he passed unexpectedly from a heart attack in 2010. He had a lot of medical issues too. I have several medical issues that I need to get a handle on.

I am busy constantly... I work 2 jobs; a student; a member of the Deaf Community; an event planner for: work, school and Deaf/ASL Socials in my area; a friend; a sister; an auntie to my nephews and their friends; and a p.i.t.a. to my friend Miguel.

I have been busy trying to finish my degree in Deaf Education. I work for the same college where I attend. I love my job and my boss. My boss allows for his employees to get out and walk the track, behind our campus. The conditions are: We can't have students waiting on us and we can only be gone for 20 to 30 minutes max. I have no excuse now, not to walk either inside the building or outside on the track.

My Goals:

1. I want to lose 200 pounds. I started Spark after being weighed in at 375 pounds. My heavest weight ever!

2. I want to fit in one airplane seat, without using an extender. I flew April 2012 and was embarrassed by some rude comments made. I blew them off by acting deaf and making the rude people feel like crap. ((I take full responsibility for my actions and some of my Deaf friends have jumped my bum for this.))

3. I want to finish my degree here in Houston, Texas before having to move to complete my bachelors/masters in another city and state.

4. My dream is to attend 'Deaf Mecca' also known as Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C.

5. I really want to teach in Deaf Education or to work for a High School/College. Yet, my passion is to work with Deaf children and their Hearing parents.

6. I would like to start dating again, once I lose some major weight. I'm tired of being treated as the stepping stone/door mat for guys. I wanna be the woman who can kill a guy with a flick of my lashes.

7. Maybe once I reach my goal weight, I can..................

My favorite Poem...

Paintbrush
by Bettie B. Youngs

I keep my paint brush with me
Wherever I may go,
In case I need to cover up
So the real me doesn't show.
I'm so afraid to show you me,
Afraid of what you'll do - that
You might laugh or say mean things.
I'm afraid I might lose you.
I'd like to remove all my paint coats
To show you the real, true me,
But I want you to accept what you see.
So if you'll be patient and close your eyes,
I'll strip off all my coats real slow.
Please understand how much it hurts
To let the real me show.
Now my coats are all stripped off.
I feel naked, bare and cold,
And if you still love me with all you see,
You are my friend, pure as gold.
I need to save my paint brush, though,
And hold it in my hand,
I want to keep it handy
In case somebody doesn't understand.
So please protect me, my dear friend
And thanks for loving me true,
But please let me keep my paint brush with me
Until I love me, too.

Personal Information:
I'm Cyndy M-.

I live in Texas, not by choice. Believe me, If I had a choice in where I live, it would be some place that actually had all 4 seasons and did not require an ac unit, ceiling fans in every room, air purifier fans in every room and rotating fans for when the temp gets over 115 degrees!

I love to travel, read, knit, make cards and working on my web pages.

I hate scammers, lazy people, beggars, and creeps/pervs.



Other Information:
I admit it, I'm a fluffy girl.

I enjoy signing with Deaf people.

I live for adventures.
