OK, so here is the deal. I've been here before plenty of times so I know all of the ins and outs of how Spark People works. I don't need any advice in that arena, thanks.

This time, I am here to wipe the slate clean and start over from scratch. Nothing in the past matters and I'm just going to move forward with a positive attitude.

In just over 10 months, my husband and I are planning to make a 3,000+ mile move from one corner of the country to the other. The thing is, though, I have no intention of showing up in my current body. I fully intend to set foot in my new town as a new, improved version of me. No more being just a spectator as life passes me by. It's time to put on a new pair of shoes and become a participant!

My Goals:
Goal 1 - 50 pound loss by December 1

My Program:
Marching to the beat of my own drum has not worked very well for me in the past. (Hello? If it had worked, I wouldn't be here right now, would I?!) Anyway, this time around, I am putting my trust in Spark People's recommended goals and eating plan.

Personal Information:
I spent my youth in Michigan. After getting married, my husband and I called Montana home for 10 years before moving to the southern suburbs of Seattle. We've spent several years here and while we love the area, we both know that it isn't where we are meant to reside for the rest of our lives. We have plans for a big move next spring which we are really looking forward to.

Other Information:
In the past few years, I have spent a lot of time educating myself on nutrition and I have come to understand how important organic, non-GMO, whole foods are. While we don't eat organic 100% of the time in my house, we certainly make a big effort to do so as often as possible.

    Those born on the Sagittarius-Capricorn Cusp will help shape the future. They have an innate talent for sensing the way things should go and bringing them to fruition. They begin preparing themselves early for what life may bring. Their motto is "Always be prepared." Not the most patient person on the block, they certainly appreciate those who agree with their plans. If they don't find the cooperation they need, they will forge on ahead on their own with no problem.
    Sagittarius-Capricorn understands the power in silence. They have the ability to utilize this to help their cause. Unless they exercise caution, they may find themselves alienating those they work or live with.
    Sagittarius-Capricorn needs to temper their intensity. This will allow them to control their moods rather than letting their moods control them. They need to focus on building and maintaining social relationships. If they are not careful, they will close themselves off.
    Sagittarius-Capricorn is practical and optimistic. They are outgoing, and can be very friendly. Responsible and reliable, they are good to have at your side in a pinch. They like things to work in traditional ways. They have a great sense of humor. They like one-on-one competitions. They are devoted to their partners, and great fun to be around. They like to explore new things, and want to experience as many things as they can. Hard working, they are not easily deterred from their goals.
    The Cusp of Prophecy is known to be trustworthy, self-reliant, loyal, ambitious, charming, practical, economical, shrewd, fun, responsible, warm, funny, optimistic, romantic, playful, and enthusiastic. They can also be blunt, impulsive, vain, aggressive and quick-tempered.
    Individuals born on the Sagittarius-Capricorn cusp are inspired teachers, and they are very fond of children. They make astute observations, and make excellent critics, being just and fair. While they don't fall in love easily, once they do they are faithful to the end. They give their best and expect the best in return. Methodical and efficient, they complete every task to the best of their ability. They like to travel and have an affinity to language.
    Sagittarius-Capricorn is a great thinker, and sometimes is gifted with prophecy to some degree. When these two signs work together in harmony, they have an unparalleled ability to create successful ideas and bring them to fruition. They have the determination to overcome whatever frustrations or obstacles as may arise along the way.
