I'm a goofy, gaming, artsy Mom to 3 teenagers in Florida. Aka: The Devil's armpit. It is hot and sweaty and being a big girl it is extra hot and sweaty... but I love it here. :) I suffer from anxiety and have type 2 diabetes. It's a difficult world to live in at times. I have tried shakeology, Herbalife, weight watchers, personal trainers, metabolic research center, slim fast, trim spa, phentermine, the 17 day diet, low carb dieting, low fat dieting, slimquick, metabolife, you name it. I struggle with myself, my ability, my inability, my can's and cant's. My thoughts, staying on track etc. I recently remarried and now I just need to make some friends and hold myself accountable. Just trying to make it. I think I've been looking for friends with similar goals for about a million years now, so friends.. if you are out there.. find me! I'm a big girl and have a hard time socializing or knowing when to shut up. I could really use a support network and someone near by who has similar interests!

Fitness Minutes: 11,164

My Goals:
I just want to lose weight and get healthy. I'm actually more concerned about the health part as I'd like to still be around past my 60's. I want to look better and feel better.


My Program:
I'm not on a program as of right now. I'm trying to do my own thing and just be active and eat within my calories. I'm a type 2 diabetic, so I need a more stable plan. I really need someone to hold my hand in this and walk me through type 2 living/curing.



Personal Information:
I'm now 32 and live in Ocala, Florida. I still have my 3 babies who are now in teenage years or quickly approaching. I'm a call center operator for a pretty amazing company. I'm a gamer, an artist and a parent. For the horde!


Other Information:
I'm always looking for something fun to keep me going. I've tried interactive video games, new activities at the gym, walking new places, fitness classes, I've even participated in a weight loss contest for a newspaper in Chicago.

    The Virgo girl is born to a mother who isn't happy with the money the father makes, so the child grows up in a family with a critical parent, so she learns to be critical especially of herself. The father is a good man but rather passive so the shy little Virgo child goes inward for quiet as she doesn't like over-stimulation. She learns to be frugal as money has always been a worry in the home. She doesn't want to be criticized so she works hard to always be ready so she isn't found unprepared. This leads to a lot of stress for the Highly Sensitive Person. Virgo needs alone time and rest. Virgo works well behind the scene helping others look good
    Virgo gets along with Pisces, Cancer, Capricorn, taurus and Scorpio, but when a relationship goes bad she will walk out and not look back as she is very capable of living on her own. She often finds a man who is the "bad boy" so she can try to improve or change him, but that doesn't work since he finds her a "nag". She is better off staying with intellectual men who want to be a success and finding one she can help get to the top.
    Weight can be an issue for her as she can turn to sweets for comfort, but her sign rules the Sixth House of Health, so she makes a good nurse caring for others. She LOVES to show others the right way to live, so she can be a health coach.
    The symbol for Virgo is the Virgin, denoting the puritanical demeanor usually common to those of this sign.
    In Virgo the Sun is orderly and thoughtful. With the Sun in Virgo you are predisposed to be hardworking, conscientious, and well-organized. Modest, discriminating and thorough, everything you do, you do well. Practical and down to earth, you are a diligent worker with a competent, discriminating intellect. You are highly analytical and exacting, especially adapted to handling projects with painstaking perfection. Thus, you are fond of good workmanship and the utmost in quality. You are dependable because your approach is always one based on common sense and a realistic and analytical assessment of the problem.
    You give much attention to detail, but you can carry this to extremes, becoming fussy and critical, sometimes interfering. Large-scale projects can overwhelm you because of your insistence on perfection. Unless you can deliver such quality, you may become frustrated and discouraged. There is always the tendency and danger with Virgo that the big picture idea will be missed in search of minute details. You expect yourself and everyone around you to be perfect, often setting yourself up for disappointment. Your outlook is too negative and picky sometimes.

    Modest and unassuming, you are usually content to live in the background. Your attitude, at times, can become puritanical and prudish. You consider yourself an ordinary person, and you are never given to any airs of pretentiousness or showing off. There may be a tendency for you to see your role as one of service and "behind the scenes" support activity.

    You have a serious attitude toward refining your mind and acquiring knowledge. With your highly varied interests, you can gain a remarkable amount of data about different subjects. You instinctively know that you must grasp all parts before you can fully understand the whole. Systematizing and detail organization are your strengths. You are idealistic, but always practical and reasonable. You're not likely to make general statements based on too few facts.
    You may be somewhat health conscious, for you have an instinctive sense of balance in diet. You're very sensible in taking care of your health, and for that matter, the health of others. Often, the Virgo becomes exceptionally neat and orderly, even a bit neurotic about cleanliness. You're likely to be susceptible to stress related problems because you do tend to worry too much.
