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!!

Ray too had Rheumatic Fever as a child - he wasn't expected to live to see 18! He also has a hole in his heart!

He was told that if they do the valve replacement, they will fix the hole at the same time and his heart would be stronger too.

Scary but exciting!

Oy, I have 2 pies in my fridge - *sigh* - I'm gonna leave them whole until tomorrow!

ONE day at a time!

He is very healthy - we are most fortunate!

The surgery is for a new heart valve! Google TAVR and you will see what it is. They are hoping to do the Femoral Surgery but if they must, they will consider the one where they make an incision between the ribs.

We are praying for Femoral please.

I can only imagine - your GD wants to go home too! Something extra special to give thanks for tomorrow!

huggs,
linda

thanks! nope, just ate, lol. it was definitely one of my binge days!

Ray has been called in for "testing" on tuesday and we're hoping this means the "committee" has accepted him as a candidate for the surgery! WooHoo!! I'm gonna be married to the bionic man!

Yes, we're still nervous but also excited. He is soooo worth the extra calories I am sure to consume in the coming 2 months!

ONE day at a time.

Been fighting the "binges" lately and that makes me less "social" but I thank you so much for kicking me in the butt with your visits.

You make sparking funner!

hugs,
linda

I've been praying all day - well, as I remembered. She's such a little sweetie!

In case you don't - I always pray that the surgeon be guided by God too! I told one of Ray's surgeons that I would be praying for him and you wouldn't believe how thankful he was!

Hugs, and keep praying!
love,
linda
