I totally hear you. Since Aug 2005 I've lost 9 pets, 2 jobs and my dad (and 54 lbs). I exercise an hour a day...sounds like a lot...but I'm unemployed and could do so much more. Yesterday a friend of mine died. On Sunday a pet I had for 21 years died. I feel punished. I am eating right and exercising and no weight comes off. I was doing so good and now WHAM! Slapped down into the mud.
Hi Cricket - I came across your post on Louisa's page. I'm Stephanie from PA. I just wanted to say that walking two hours is a sure way to get in those size 10 jeans. I wish I had more time to exercise. I do the best that I can with the time that I can and I am seeing the results. Welcome to SP (I know I'm a little late). I hope you are enjoying it here.
When I was growing up there was a girl (my age) named Cricket that used to visit her grandmother when I was at my best friend's house. I don't think I've run into anyone with that name until I saw your page.
