Giving what I can, when the going is ruff !

I am the ML (does this stand for Motivational Leader,, or as I LIKE to say "MOST LOVED" leader !???? LOL Just ask the other leaders,,,, but, ONLY my vote counts,, of course in this case,, perhaps some insanity helps?) for the Spirited Under Dawgs,,, a part of the 5% challenge community. We do what we are able to ,,, in order to lose 5% of our weight in 8 weeks. I HAVE SUCCEEDED at this a few times ! Though at that point, my weight was quite higher than it is now ! So this IS POSSIBLE !! ...

So this IS POSSIBLE !!

For this SUMMER Challenge, I AM AGAIN (SIGH !) dealing with foot problems. Still in the "having tests" stage, so I can't state if I'll be down for all 8 weeks, or not, I tend to think yes.

So what I will do to lose the weight? The ONLY thing I can. To WATCH my food Intake ! The KEY IS TRACKING !! If you find ur gaining,, or on a plateau,,, RESTART with TRACKING, and EVERYTHING you put into ur mouth.

THIS IS DOABLE even if I don't lose the entire 5%, i WANT SOME !

My Goals:
I live in the GORGEOUS State of Maine ! Our States Motto is: "VACATION LAND" ! If you can dream it (other than HOT weather ! LOL) you CAN DO IT HERE ! All 4 seasons, are FULL OF FUN !!

I had PLANNED on swimming in the ocean quite a bit,, for I live on a harbor, with the beach less than 4 mins from my place, but that's OUT again, due to my feet.

I am OWNED by Missy Izzy !! A mix of Tiger,,,and Lamar ,, cat ! A lamar?? WHAT"s THAT??? its a kitty that has a rougher furr,,,, its a strange fur,,,, they have shorter legs,, almost dwarf like (Its GREAT ! She CAN'T JUMP on a lot of things my other cats have !) and when they are held in a "baby" position in ur arms,, they ALWAYS put their paw on ur face ! ADORABLE OR WHAT???? She's NOT at all demanding as some are,,, she's EXTREMELY LOVING. Sometimes TO MUCH So when I am trying to type ! LOL !

My Program:
To drink 5 to 7 glasses of water daily.

To TRACK DAILY ALL I put into the yap trap !

Exercise,, will vary,, and it can't be as it has been in the past,, until foot heals,, I CAN and WILL do arm exercises with weights,, once the picc line for antibiotics comes out.

Personal Information:
Humor is important to surviving when life gets hard,, harder.

Prayer is always helpful,,,, gets me through a lot of the rough spots.

I am surrounded by both family and friends,,,, hmmm that MARYANN (GI) is counted among them ! WOOHOOOO !! So are MANY others on the teams,,, "TEAMS"??? yes,,, some Dawggies have WANDERED OUT of the Kennel, but we remain friends.

Thank you - Yes, Ray is doing well. He gets really shaken up when he falls and also bruised and battered - at 93, his skin is so thin!

I'm back on track today and hope to be back to normal tomorrow. Whatever normal is, lol.

Thank you for caring!

You must try to generate happiness within yourself. If you aren't happy in one place, chances are you won't be happy anyplace.
