I'm 33 years old and single, living in Sidney, NY, but originally from Mohawk, NY. My family is everything to me...and for probably most of my life, I've always made the sacrifices or stretched myself thin to be there for them...to help, support or whatever they need. I've been overweight my whole life...even as a 5 year old, I had the chubby cheeks. My Dad is a great cook and this definitely never helped the waistline or the fact that both of my parents struggle with their weight either. I'm hoping that by me doing this I can get them to join me, I think they would feel so much better and just be happier and make life easier in the years to come.
I'm the oldest child and always the one who wanted to please my parents and that meant cleaning my plate too.
I think that's where it started, but it is definitley not my parents fault for me hanging onto the weight. Growing up was hard as many of us know going to school and gym class and having fellow classmates or other kids in school make fun and call you names. I never had a boyfriend in high school...and still really haven't had much luck in the relationship area. I'm not happy, I know that. I want change and I know what I have to do....getting there and sticking with it gets hard sometimes, as we all know. So, I'm trying again! I want this to be for life and I want it to be a change that will bring new experiences and happiness to my life.

My Goals:
Right now, my short term goal is to lose some weight and tone up my body some to look better in a bridesmaids dress for my sister's wedding. But, before the wedding is RELAY FOR LIFE...where we're fighting against cancer and fighting means living a healthy lifestyle...so at this years relay, I want to be able to jog with Vicki! Yay!
All in all, I want to feel good about myself, lose weight, shed inches and drop sizes. I want to be able to find cute clothes and look good in sleevless tops and short skirts. I want to go to an amusement park and not be scared to go on the ride because I might not fit...well, there's lots more! I just want to make a lifelong change that will help me feel fulfilled in life.


My Program:
I'm just getting started by writing down everything I eat or drink and the times..actually, I'm trying to do this, but having a hard time keeping it up. So, I'm counting calories, but also staying away from high sugar, high fat foods. I'm eating more vegetables and fruits and drinking more water. I also eat more whole wheat or whole grain products as opposed to white starches. And I'm starting to work out again.



Personal Information:
My name is Maryann. I'm 33 and single. I work as an office manager in a grocery store. I'm honestly not fulfilled with this job, but trying to figure out where to go with my career, where to go in life. I'm also hoping to find a good man, to find love. I love my family and friends and they are very important in my life. I like to help others and I want to make a difference. I'm very involved in our community's Relay for Life event, benefitting the American Cancer Society.

    Those born on the Taurus-Gemini cusp are eternally young. They are energetic, prolific and once they find something that really appeals to them, they do it quite a bit.
    They are also versatile. This versatility may cause them to wear themselves out because they try to do too much too frequently. They need to learn to limit themselves to create a balance.
    Taurus-Gemini is a born communicator. They love active conversations on just about any topic you can imagine. They do have to be careful not to monopolize the conversation. It is all too easy for them to do.
    They may be conflicted about certain things due to their nature. While they want to be earthy and stable, they are drawn to towards more unstable, frenetic behavior. They may not be sensitive to the feelings of others. While they can spend hours debating over their own emotional matters, they may appear rather unsympathetic or detached. They are prone to burning out, both physically and mentally. If they can learn self-discipline, they will be more successful.
    Taurus-Gemini needs to keep track of their activity level with great care. They need to learn consistency when rejecting ideas or people. They need to learn how to gentle their approach. Confronting their own insecurities will help them grow. Resting is a good thing from time to time.

    Taurus-Gemini can focus too much on money and possessions. They are usually gentle, dependable and tolerant of those around them. At the same time, they can be high strung and scattered. They are entertaining and make loyal friends who are fun to be around. They like to spend time eating good food and enjoying a rousing conversation.
    Their strengths are their stability, intellectual and conversational skills and their perseverance. They are good at analyzing challenging ideas and have the ability to communicate those ideas to others. If they can learn to add the variety of Gemini to the dedication of Taurus, they can be very successful.
    Broadminded and hardworking, Taurus-Gemini is also expressive, energetic, charming, intelligent, adaptable, shy, practical, mature, gentle, quiet, stable, restless, blunt, scattered, nervous, over-indulgent and changeable. They don't call this the Cusp of Energy for nothing.
    Individuals born on the Taurus-Gemini cusp are independent and proud. They are very talented, especially when they learn how to get their inclinations to work together. If they get unhappy, they tend to get lethargic and apathetic. Learning to forgive is a blessing in their life.
    They may have interests in art, music, travel or social activities. They attract many friends, though they should be cautious they don't over-commit themselves to too many relationships. They are generous people, who enjoy delving into many things.
