My name is Patricia

When I started Spark People I was 352lbs. Since January of 2007 I have lost 54lbs. Unfortunately I had almost given up and with renewed hope I begin my journey once again. My ultimate goal is to be at a healthy 180lbs.

Update: It's October 13, 2015 I now weigh 259 lbs that's an additional 39 lbs since the last time I updated my sparkpage...I'm stuck and I need to do what I set out to do. I'm dedicated and committed 100% I will achieve my 180 lbs weight goal.

    Jupiter is now in Taurus giving you a LOT of LUCK and making things happen BIG for you. But, know that you can want more than you need, so use your good common sense and chose wisely for you have the ability to do that.
    The Taurus woman is born to a mother she can never live up to and so she learns to be stubborn to hold her own ground and be her own person. Her "stage" mother wants to run her life, but Taurus wants to give to others and so she makes a wonderful hostess and great "feeder of others" both emotionally and physically.
    Taurus gets along well with Virgo, Capricorn, Pisces, Cancer and sometimes Scorpio. In any relationship Scorpio is in, he MUST be in control as he is very insecure, but Taurus will just LET him think he is and she will work her magic with this "know-it-all-man."

    As a Taurus, you are likely to be very patient, a hard worker, and one of those people who constantly puts forth much sustained effort. Your demeanor is slow and deliberate, and attempts by others to hurry you rarely succeed. You need time to adjust to new ideas and changes. You can be stubborn to the point of becoming rigid, but you are practical and constructive in nearly everything you do. You carefully consider options before starting any action or coming to any conclusion. You function best under conditions where there is predictability, and where you can exercise a degree of control.
    Good-natured and friendly, your placid demeanor rarely shows upset or anger. When you are aroused, as suggested by the symbol of the sign, your reactions are very much like those of the angered bull. This anger can be reckless, and often lingers.
    There is a certain reluctance in the Taurus nature to try anything new or different. You don't take many chances, and you believe in sticking with the familiar and comfortable. There is not much adventure in your soul, and it is probably fair to label you a conservative individual. The danger with Taurus is the tendency to become too narrow-minded, and to dismiss anything that can't be seen, touched, smelled or tasted.
    You are not usually the first to learn a lesson, but when it is mastered, you are not likely ever to forget. Retentive and steadfast, you don't scatter your energies. You may be lazy at times, perhaps not spending any energy at all for extended periods. Yet long term, you are very willing to assume responsibility and shoulder more than your fair share of the load.

    You may be materialistic, often showing interests in money, security, and comforts in life. To those you love, you often show your feelings in a material way, and you appreciate the same in return. The Taurus personality is sometimes too concerned with money and possessions. Perhaps a little indulgent and luxury-loving, you relish creature comforts and appreciate beautiful possessions. Because of these interests, you have good taste in clothing and furnishings. You also may have a talent for landscaping and working with plants and flowers to make your surrounding more pleasant and appealing.
    You may excel as a cook, but even if you don't have the inclination to prepare it, you certainly enjoy food; perhaps too much. Because of this, you may have a battle with your weight. A slow metabolism and lack of interest in exercise often compound this problem.
    A natural interest in art and music often leads to careers or hobby pursuits in some form of art. Taurus is the sign that rules the throat, so you may have a fine singing and speaking voice.

    Love relationships are very important to you. Since you don't like being alone, you may settle for a partnership that is less than ideal, instead of accepting loneliness. Once settled in a relationship, you are very steadfast and dependable. You are exceedingly loyal, and make a very faithful friend. The most appealing aspect of Taurus, that sweet and loving temperament, is the often present when the Sun appears in Taurus.
