Live in the Beautiful NW now!!!

I signed up again for another 5% off weight challenge starting Sept 20th. This time I am a Spirited Underdog. New team, hoping it will give me the ump I need to lose the pounds I need to be back at maintenance!!! Since I'm new to the Dawgs team, I am a puppy!!! I like that!!!

My husband thinks I am the Most Positive Person he has ever seen. I do try to think positive and keep negativity out of my life. Even if it means no news channels haha.

I now live in Washington State. I have struggled with weight my whole life. More than once I've had to lose 30 pounds. It just kinda creeps up on ya uh?
I'm thinking that getting use to being focused on what I eat each day, will make it different this time.

My family includes my husband, my 93 year old mother that lives with us, 2 Moluccan cockatoos (more trouble than my children were) and a golden retriever. My youngest daughter suffers with seizures now, and has moved in with her English Bull Mastiff.

I have 3 daughters, the other 2 live in the Seattle WA. area and Silverdale. I have 4 grandchildren, the youngest just born June 8, 2012. My biggest wish was to live closer to my children and grandchildren. (I now live in the NW, about 2 hrs from all my girls and grandkids!) My wish came true, but it was hard won. Oct 18,2013 we had a house fire in our home in Lake Havasu, AZ. It took nine months of misery, rental moves, and insurance adjustments but we moved into OUR home in Port Angeles, WA 7-18-2014.

Here's to us ALL "positively" losing and keeping our weight off!!

Aww Debby,, you know at ONE time,, many yrs ago,,, I thought "WOE IS ME" but, thankfully I went into therapy,, worked it all through,, and got BACK my LOVELY LIFE ! Which of course had never left,, only I was not appreciating ALL i've been given. Life is sooo precious.

A BFF of mine,, is now having major breathing problems,,, she has been committing "passive suicide" for many yrs,, at least 8,, by simply eating herself to death. Now that its starting to affect her,,,, she's all scared. Today I flat out told her,, "If you wish K,,, you can change this course,, we can start to swim, you should be without me,, its been almost 5 months of my cast being on,, wish you had NOT STOPPED, you were doing so well" !! Well she LOVES FOOD, to the MAX !!! She told me when her D (My adopted GD for this reason) wanted to die,,,S was 11,, I told her "I am her GM ! NOT HER MOM ! Every child ALWAYS needs their Mom" She looked at me,, squarely in the eyes "You can raise her,, you do much better than I do". SO now my GD is 19,,,, and her plan is being carried out. I hate this, but it will NOT affect my life,, other than to KNOW I WILL NOT FOLLOW HER !!

I ADORE Life,,,, no matter what happens physically, as long as ur alive,, it IS a gift to enjoy.

HI Sweet Debby,,,

Hon,, if you get up during the night,, and eat,, PLZ DO NOT FEEL BAD !! A LOT of us have this issue,, me included !! I will often wake up around 4AM,,, to 6AM,,, if its 4,,, I'll grab a piece of american cheese,, if its 6AM,, i'll often eat my breakfast,,, but than go back to bed til 8ish.

Since my Dr has me needing eating every 3 or 4 hrs,,, it now doesn't bother me,, it used too. I thought "What IS WRONG". Now I know,, have you talked to ur Dr about possibly being hypoglycemic? My sugar suddenly dives down,, and yes, I am also a diabetic,, though one does not need to be. Just a thought for you hon.
