Love this! Doesn't it just make you smile?
Annie - My Sweet Girl
My name is Karen. I'm in my forties, with too much weight currently on a 5'-1" frame. I'm generally happy, and logical. I enjoy living most everyday. I chose to be happy because, being unhappy really stinks!
My health goals are weight loss and increased muscle!! And to feel and look great, too!
I am looking to step out with a different education options, and turn my career into a whole new direction.
I was unemployed over a year, and am working part-time now. I am uninsured. I have asthma and I have been reluctant to exercise due to lack of medicine.
Smile and Laugh everyday.
To look and feel great, and proud of the way I'm taking care of myself.
Small steps.. build momentum .... CHARGE!
1) Adjust beverages, no more than 2 Diet pops a day, increase water.
2) Track food.
3) Start with Strength and Isometric exercises.

"Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear."
"The true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him no good." - Ann Landers
One of my favorite thoughts, when trying to decide if I should do / try something is: "What is the worst thing that could happen?" If the worst thing is temporary embarrassment, someone could say no, etc. I go for it. If it's going to put me in debt, do harm to someone, end the world, etc. I stop.

LOL I'm hoping the tooth gets fixed today! Last time I went the dentist took xrays and cleaned my teeth and then the issues came up with the claims so nothing really got done. Sigh, lol! So I'm hoping today I can get some kind of relief. I miss eating on the right side of my mouth and I woke up with another headache too. That's ok though. Today's just started. Some music will fix me right up, it always does. :)
And thank you! I love cones! I actually made my fiance drive me through a mcdonalds drive thru the other day for a cone. He gave me the look of, "I can't believe we're doing this. You're lucky I love you." Hahahahahahaha!
PLUS! Your dogs are SO cute. SO CUTE.
I hope you keep your chin up. You sound like an optimistic person from your page and I love upbeat people, so hang in there and always help others. It's becoming my new way of life! :)

Annie is a pound puppy, her parentage is unknown. I think she may be a belgian sheepdog or belgian sheepdog mix. She is right size, temperament, color, hair, and physique. But, whatever her background she is mine, and I'm grateful. Oscar is a shih-tzu. I keep his hair trimmed because, he doesn't like brushed much and he does like mud and snow. Plus, I think he looks cute in a hair cut. I do it myself, it's not too hard.
You're girls are beautiful, too. No need to ask what breed they are. I would like to have a Collie someday(rough, smooth, or bearded). I considered getting a bearded collie, when we got Annie.
Smile and Laugh Every Day!
