I signed up again for another 5% weight loss challenge starting April 8. The challenge runs for 8 weeks. I find this challenge helps me get back on track and keeps from gaining all my weight back. I have been a Spirited Underdog for most of the challenges. I 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? My family includes my husband, 2 Moluccan cockatoos (more trouble than my children were) and a Pomchi . I have 3 daughters, 2 live in the Seattle WA. area and Silverdale. My Youngest daughter lives here in Port Angeles. and she gave birth 13 months ago to a beautiful baby girl 2/20/16. I babysit her a couple days a week and am thrilled to do so. I have 4 other grandchildren, ages 23, 18, 6 and 4. My biggest wish was to live closer to my children and grandchildren. My wish came true, but it was hard won. On 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!!

    emoticon I just logged in behind you in the kennel and want to say HI! How is your Spring Challenge going? I hope you are seeing some sunshine. We get a few hours most days. Then it rains again, I generally feel lucky to get out in the sun as much as I do. The last two Wednesdays I've gone hiking after work with friends leaving in the sun and coming back in the rain. The ran has held off until we were hiking out both times. Ya!

    Have a great day!

    Thanks for the Goodie ! Hope you enjoyed a Happy Easter. We went to church and had our "diet meal" and then worked on repairing items for our estate sale. We would have driven to spend the weekend with our grands,14,12 and 8, but we are feeding my brother and sister-in-laws two Prince Charles somethings while they are in CA visiting her mother and two sisters and couldn't run the risk of harming them on a road trip. I believe he worries more over those two dogs than he did and does his two daughters. Quietest Easter for us in years, no picnic, hike or family gathering. But we were blessed and have and are enjoying a blessed Easter.
    Go Dawgs!
