August 30, 2012~I am starting again! I'm so upset with myself for letting myself go yet again! I have gained all of the lost weight back and am totally out of shape again ~ I had built up stamina and strength and now I'm back to square one and every activity hurts and makes me huff and puff. I want to be healthy, strong and sexy for good!

I'm setting a nine month goal to lose 47 pounds by the end of May when we go to Vegas to visit our friends.

Sept '12 lose 7lbs = 210lbs - DONE 9/24/12
Oct '12 lose 6lbs = 204 - DONE 10/17/12
Nov '12 lose 5lbs = 199 (wahoo, back in the ones!) - DONE 11/7/12
Dec '12 lose 4lbs = 195 (I will try to lose more in Dec but I'm being realistic with the holidays) - DONE - 11/24/12
Jan '12 lose 5lbs = 190 - DONE - 12/28/12
Feb '12 lose 5lbs = 185 (wedding weight 9/12/2009) - DONE- 2/1/13
Mar '12 lose 5lbs = 180
Apr '12 lose 5lbs = 175 (almost there - Buy a new bathing suit)
May '12 lose 5lbs = 170 (Trip to Las Vegas!!)

Now I have to create my plan to accomplish this. I need to create a fitness/workout plan and a meal plan.

Thanks for your help SparkPeople! I can't do this without you!!!

Lose it for Love! That is my new motto for 2011. I've hit bottom, I lost 30lbs in '09 using SparkPeople and when I got married Sept '09 I fell completely out of all my healthy habits and spent all of 2010 gaining back every pound. I feel horrible, I'm back to a very limited "fat girl" wardrobe and just don't love myself right now. I'm disappointed in myself for letting it all go again after all the work I put into losing weight and getting healthy. I want my sexy back, I want to be a trophy wife again!

Here is my back story for anyone who's curious... I grew up very thin, able to eat anything I wanted and I gained a lot of weight in my early 20's, it just happened so fast (a size 7 to a 14 in about 3 months). I didn't know what to do, I didn't know how to diet because I grew up eating anything I wanted with no weight gain and that's when I started on the weight loss roller coaster and ended up gaining more weight than ever (Highest recorded weight 223lbs) and trying all sorts of unhealthy diets and pills.

SparkPeople has taught me to eat healthy, make smart choices, set goals and keep on keepin' on. My brain thinks I'm skinny and soon I will be again! Now I'm starting all over again but I need help to build momentum and keep it going for life!!!

Thanks in advance to all you Sparker's for your support!

    The symbol for Cancer is the Crab, with its protective shell. People with this Sun sign are sometimes also called "Moon Children," because the Moon is the ruler of the sign.
    In Cancer the Sun is receptive and moody. You are a very sensitive person who is easily influenced by your environment. You are likely to be exceedingly protective of your feelings, as well as the feelings of those to whom you are close. Emotions are strong in your nature. You approach life with many feelings and a strong nurturing tendency. Your moods are varied and changeable. They are synchronized to the Moon, flowing in and out like the tide. You are acutely aware of the atmosphere of feelings surrounding you. You're skeptical and distrustful of people. It's not what they say, but simply the way they say it and the way you interpret their meaning.
    You need to tell your deepest thoughts. When those around you are not receptive, you can become quite difficult to reach. The "crabby" part of Cancer shows up once in awhile, as well. When these moods are in control of your behavior, you can snap someone's head off for no reason at all. People you live around have to learn that you are not really angry with them. This is just the way Moon children are sometimes. By nature you are quiet and somewhat reserved, frequently retreating or putting up a protective barrier when you feel in any way threatened.
    You are attuned to the past. You tend to cling to reminders and memorabilia of your family and of earlier times. Many Cancers are attracted to collecting antiques. You may be one of those people who collects just about everything. It's hard for you to part with something when there may be a chance need some rainy day, no matter how remote that chance may be. Cancers are the original "pack-rats."
    You place much importance on the home and family. Your family or your "family of friends" is the center of your life. They provide you your sense of security and belonging. Your role in this environment is the source of your self-esteem and often overshadow your sense of individuality. It's hard to break away from your early upbringing and depart from the family traditions you have experienced. Cancer is the sign of motherhood. In both sexes, it produces a parenting instinct that is caring, protective, and indulging. Even unmarried Cancers adopt friends, co-workers, and neighbors in an extended family situation.
    Hardworking and dedicated, you make an excellent employee. You are loyal and respect authority. This makes you supportive and protective of the boss and rarely questioning company policy. You do find it very difficult to handle change and disruption. If you are the boss, you like your employees to be dedicated as you are. Unfortunately, sometimes you may surround yourself with "yes men" who simply reinforce your decisions. You don't take chances or risk sweeping change.
    Money is very important to you. Not for what it will buy or for the freedom it provides, but for the sense of security it provides. No matter what else is to be said of Cancer, security and having the protective shell in place, is overriding.
