I will rise from my ashes!

Thanks for coming to my page! I'm a 30 y/o with a lot of life left to live and it's time to start doing that. I have been a SP member for a few years now, but I have NEVER been this serious about it. I couldn't stay motivated or get into exercising, but with my support group reformed and SP here to help, I WILL do it this time!!

I have already accomplished a lot in my life:
~I have found the man of my dreams and snatched him up on 8/31/07
~I fought my way through college and graduated with an Accounting degree 05/08/10
~and got a wonderful job in the field that I am trained in 07/21/10
~overcame my battle with infertility and had my son, Jaxson, 10/2/15
just to name a few.

I support many different charity groups. I am the captain of my own Breast Cancer Support group and March of Dimes. I help out Childrens Network, raise money for ALPS (Adult Day Services for Alzheimer's patients), raise money for Childrens' Hospital, my mothers ministry "Bundles of Love and Hope", and so many more. We do whatever it takes to get awareness out there for help.

I have been overweight my entire life, and it's time to change that. I want to feel that I look beautiful on the outside and confident on the inside. I have been diagnosed with PCOS, insulin resistance, iron deficient anemia, and hypothyroidism among other things which makes all of the above even harder yet me more determined!! I also want to live and experience as much as I can with my children without limitations. I have so many more reasons to do this at this time, but the biggest reason is for my health.

Heres to a second chance!!!

*Fall 7 times, get up 8!!*

DONE having limitations
DONE making excuses
DONE sitting everything out
DONE feeling uncomfortable
DONE shopping in the plus sizes(and paying extra for it)
DONE having health issues
DONE being the fat friend/sister/daughter/wife/mother
I am DONE!!!!

() -50 lbs.= get a hair cut

()-55,60 lbs.= go for a manicure

() -65,70 lbs.= go for a pedicure

*the rest will come as I get closer...

My Program:
Make healthier choices with food. Make a smaller plate and dont go back for anything, except veggies. Eat healthier snacks and experiment with salads. Limit sweets and cut out sodas.

Try for a mile of walking at LEAST per day. Use treadmill as much as possible, aiming for 30 min/day, 3 days/wk. Zumba DVDs as much as possible, Zumba 1 hr/day 2x/week. And yoga, atleast 3 times/wk for help with flexibility. I also chase my toddler son around as much as possible and as he gets older, we do more chasing.

    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.
