Welcome! I'm Leslie, a 48 year young woman and I'm ready to have fun! I have spent the past several years (OK, close to two decades) taking care of everyone else and kind of lost myself in the process.

Now, my son is in Marine Corp Boot Camp and my daughter is seriously looking at colleges and my husband seems to be having the time of his life. He's got a job he loves, several organizations he's involved in and has created "community" for himself. He's tried to involve me several times, but what he's interested in isn't really what I'm interested in.

SO - Time for me! I've already enrolled in school. I'm either going to study psychology or Physical Therapy. Now time to lose weight and feel better. My body hurts so bad! My feet, hips and legs hurt all the time. I can't wait to see what the future holds!

Member Since: 1/5/2008

Fitness Minutes: 1,253

My Goals:
#1 - To re-discover who I am.

#2 - To participate in life. I will no longer just be a spectator.

#3 - To not avoid my friends and family anymore. To re-learn that I am someone that is worth knowing and spending time with.

#4 - To feel sexy again! (My husband says I am, but I don't believe it.)

#5 - To be healthy!

#6 - To look for the positive in everything.

My Program:
I honestly don't know. Right now I'm counting calories (with the help of my Sparkpeople Tracker), and I'm going to introduce walking soon. After that, who knows? I've been a Sparkpeople member for years, and the thing I always notice is people end up in places they never dreamed that would be (vegetarian, runner, etc), so I guess and wait to see what calls to me.

Personal Information:
Married for 22 years come June, 2014.

Two kids - a 18 year old boy and a 15 year old girl.

I love God, but I need to be more deliberate about doing it. :)

Other Information:

250 (5%) - Up to $30 in new tops

240 (10%) - New Dress/Outfit

    By nature, Gemini isn't a "fat" sign, since she is to active and really doesn't want to be slowed down. Exercise for Gemini needs to have something mental involved as she gets bored very quickly. She should be part of a class as she loves to have friends around her. Gemini is most often the "baby' in the family and born to a father who is well respected in the community. She grows up fast as she needs to keep up with the older kids. She learns to talk early to express her ideas. Her health issues are her nerves, injury to her shoulders, collar bone, hands and lungs. She should never smoke. She gets along with Libra, Aquarius, Leo, Aries and Sagittarius. She should avoid controlling Scorpio as she doesn't want to be tied down. She does well working at a job where she can talk, such as a 911 Operator or teacher. She will be young when she is old.

    In Gemini the Sun is active, restless and changeable. You like plenty of variety in your everyday activities, in your friends, and even in your diet. Your interests are many and diverse--almost anything will attract your attention if only for a brief time. Truly, this is the sign of the jack-of-all-trades. As the story goes, you may find that unless you can develop your powers of perseverance, you may be the master of none. Your varied interests can result in a tendency for you to spread yourself too thin, sometimes failing to follow through on projects you've begun.
    Being very curious, you want to know and experience as much as you can. Gemini is the sign of duality. You find it difficult to limit yourself to one job, to one relationship, or one hobby, as you constantly seek variety and mental adventure. You scatter your energies because you don't want to miss anything. You are a lifelong student, never tiring of learning new subjects. You collect facts and tidbits of data, but you may not always have the big picture.
    To the Gemini person, communication is of utmost importance. You flourish on ideas, with a mind that is ever so quick and curious. You are a person who enjoys talking and writing. All sorts of communication ideas appeal to nature. You are aware of all that is going on around you, and you want to understand and participate in it all. You are hard to pin down, and even harder to beat in a debate. Your abilities of combining quick comprehension , and the communication of this comprehension to others, are the hallmarks of your sign. You can talk yourself into and out of situations with ease. Often Mercury people (Gemini's ruling planet is Mercury) take mischievous delight in disconcerting slower minds with their fast paced mental antics. You like to be around people, and you never do well working alone or on any routine type job.
    Extremely friendly, you enjoy companionship, and really thrive on it. Just as you don't like to be without activity, you don't like to be alone. You are likely to have a very wide circle of friends with whom you enjoy many activities--movies, games, conversation, and such. You are naturally outgoing and possess a sparkling wit. You are apt to become quickly bored with conservative types that can't make a decision or agree with your need to impose change. Not being very introspective or reflective, often you don't understand your motivations or the motivations of others. So in many ways, relationships can be shallow and superficial. Your restless mercurial nature requires constant excitement and change, or you'll becomes very dispirited and morose.
