Hi I'm a 34yr old wife to a wonderful man, and mother to a amazing 9yr old boy. When I became pregnant 10yrs ago I begain to pack on the pound., I ended up gaining 150lbs if not more because there were times I just didn't weigh myself.
I have always struggled with my weight. I've been as small as a size 3 and as big as a size 26. Which is the size I was at my heaviest. To be honest even the size 26 were tight I just refused to buy
I had lap band surgery on August 4th of 2010. Its not been easy, and it is a slow but steady weight loss. I feel as if I have hit a plateau so I am trying to incorporate more exercise and get over this hump.. I'm still dealing with emotional eating, temptation and family sabotage. For everyone who thinks this is a quick fix it def is not!! I can sabotage this if I allow myself to overeat. This is just a tool to help me control my over eating. I still have to do all the work eat the right foods and exercise to see results.
Not only am I doing this for myself. I'm doing this for my husband who deserves to have a wife who loves herself so I can love him better. I'm also doing this for my son who deserves to have a mommy who can be present and more active in his life.
I'm ready to start living life and being who I'm meant to be. God has a purpose for me and I am so ready to start on the path to find it. I am learning to love myself more and value my worth more. I would love to make some friends and learn to live healthy. So if your looking for someone to travel this journey of weight loss with you just drop me a line.

    In Cancer the Sun is receptive and moody. You are a very sensitive person who is easily influenced by your environment. You are likely to be exceedingly protective of your feelings, as well as the feelings of those to whom you are close. Emotions are strong in your nature. You approach life with many feelings and a strong nurturing tendency. Your moods are varied and changeable. They are synchronized to the Moon, flowing in and out like the tide. You are acutely aware of the atmosphere of feelings surrounding you. You're skeptical and distrustful of people. It's not what they say, but simply the way they say it and the way you interpret their meaning.
    You need to tell your deepest thoughts. When those around you are not receptive, you can become quite difficult to reach. The "crabby" part of Cancer shows up once in awhile, as well. When these moods are in control of your behavior, you can snap someone's head off for no reason at all. People you live around have to learn that you are not really angry with them. This is just the way Moon children are sometimes. By nature you are quiet and somewhat reserved, frequently retreating or putting up a protective barrier when you feel in any way threatened.
    You are attuned to the past. You tend to cling to reminders and memorabilia of your family and of earlier times. Many Cancers are attracted to collecting antiques. You may be one of those people who collects just about everything. It's hard for you to part with something when there may be a chance need some rainy day, no matter how remote that chance may be. Cancers are the original "pack-rats."
    You place much importance on the home and family. Your family or your "family of friends" is the center of your life. They provide you your sense of security and belonging. Your role in this environment is the source of your self-esteem and often overshadow your sense of individuality. It's hard to break away from your early upbringing and depart from the family traditions you have experienced. Cancer is the sign of motherhood. In both sexes, it produces a parenting instinct that is caring, protective, and indulging. Even unmarried Cancers adopt friends, co-workers, and neighbors in an extended family situation.

    Hardworking and dedicated, you make an excellent employee. You are loyal and respect authority. This makes you supportive and protective of the boss and rarely questioning company policy. You do find it very difficult to handle change and disruption. If you are the boss, you like your employees to be dedicated as you are. Unfortunately, sometimes you may surround yourself with "yes men" who simply reinforce your decisions. You don't take chances or risk sweeping change.
    Money is very important to you. Not for what it will buy or for the freedom it provides, but for the sense of security it provides. No matter what else is to be said of Cancer, security and having the protective shell in place, is overriding.
