Updated October 7, 2013!

I had spinal fusion surgery in March, 2011. I did well with my recovery and got down to my lowest in years...156lbs. However, whatever I want to blame...depression, work, myself, life...I gained nearly 30+ pounds by the end of that year!!

Last summer my "baby", Bubba (16 year old cat) died. He had not been sick at all and it was a great shock. Soon, my other boy cat, Tigger began getting sick, too and was diagnosed with a thyroid issue. He did not respond to treatment and he died last November.

Since then I have gained about 10 more pounds. I would say that I entered a time of depression. Being a single gal, my cats are like family to me...losing two of them within months was a sad time. I still have two girls (Ellie-15 and Pepper-8) and I got two new kittens (Ditto and Jesse) and they are sister, 5 months old.

Yesterday I cleaned out the fridge and freezer (pantry is going to be done this weekend) of all the foods I should not be eating. I will replace them with fruits and veggies and lean meats. I will start slow with getting active--short walks and some exercise DVD's. I hope to have some results by the time I visit my family in November.

Here is where the "rubber meets the road"...success is mine--if I am willing to work for it and do what needs to be done.

I am getting back to the basics...
