Jim and Me...I was about 135 (November 2005)
Bro-in-Law, Sis, My Man & Me
Hello! Three years ago, I joined WW and had no problem making my goal weight of 119 lbs. As I write this, I weight 153!! I know how it happened, of course. I stopped exercising and went back to my old, un-healthy ways of eating. My interests are cooking, gardening, and I make stained glass suncatchers & panels. I don't have kids, but have 3 dogs and 2 cats that keep me busy. I'm interested in hooking up with a buddy or two for extra motivation. I joined SP in in March '08, but quickly went back to old habits. We went on a cruise in September and Jim proposed! Our wedding is planned for Sept 19, 2009...so now I have even more to motivate me. I don't want to look like a sausage shoved into my wedding dress!

My main goal is to lose 25lbs, which I know will make me feel & look better. As my weight started to climb, I was less and less interested in my hobbies and activities. I want to get involved in the things I love again.
I hope to reach my goal weight by exercising daily, eating healthy and avoiding all of the alcoholic drinks I love. Water just doesn't taste as good as a big margarita! but I have been behaving! :-)
My name is Amy, I'm 39 yrs old and live in Maryland. I work for the Executive Producer of America's Most Wanted. I am not married, but have a wonderful boyfriend that I've been with almost 5 yrs. I/We have no kids, but have 3 dogs and 2 cats. All of them are spoiled rotten!
I love to read books by James Patterson, but am currently reading "Darkly Dreaming Dexter" (I have a dark side!). I enjoy gardening, so I cannot wait for warmer weather. I LOVE to cook and have been making all cooking light recipes lately, which are delicious! My favorite TV shows are Boston Legal, Law & Order, Family Guy & Dexter.

Hi Amy, just stoppin by to see how you and the doggies (and kitty!) are doing. My black pug, Peppermint, and I are training to walk 4.5 miles for the MS Society in April. It's tough since it's wintertime and rainy out but we are working at it! Hopefully her little puggy legs will make it all the way.
Regards to your family!

Cool pic! It's hard to take photos of pugs sometimes, esp. coz one of ours is black. For our 2-year wedding anniversary last month, I surprised my husband with - what else? - painted portraits of each of our three dogs! LOL! He is a little embarrassed that he's a man who has three little dogs, but he loves them to death. Anyhow, keep us in mind if you plan to buy Christmas presents for your pooches =).

Congrats on the engagement! Good luck on a loooooooong year of wedding planning (don't mean to scare you LOL)! Love your pets--they are darlings! Our pug Sydney just came home from the animal hospital due to a plastic thing that was lodged in her intestine =(. She's got the cone collar and we've isolated her from the other dogs to keep her from jumping around with her stitches. The vet bill was quite painful after she had been there for 4 nights plus surgery. Anyhow, I would love to be your Spark pal, although I have to admit I am not on the diet and exercise program right now. I'm keeping active on here to help myself get motivated and also to stay positive and keep some SANITY amidst life's stresses. But I'll do whatever you need me to do! Send you emails to see how you're doing, whatever. Just let me know! =) Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!
