I share my home and life with 4-footed friends - 2 cats (Starkist & Shadowspawn), & 3dogs. My little dogs are smallest dogs I''ve ever had - Shalako the Pomeranian, Samurai the Papillon, and Spartacus the rescued chihuahua (also known as "the little weasel"). We''ve been walking about 30 minutes to 2 hours daily.

I got the lap-band surgery in Nov 06. So far, I''ve lost over 120 pounds (3/9/10). Recently changed my end goal to even less. (155). Sigh ...

I''m an RN and work 12 hour night-shifts - boy, does that throw your metabolism off! I have things planned in the daytime for my days off, and have to sleep in the daytime on work days. All the tips for improving sleep say "set a routine and stick to it". Uh, huh - that''ll work.

My Goals:
Mini goal - I'm gonna bust thru 200 by the end of July!! DID IT!!! 7/13/09

Get in shape so my knees don't keep stressing.

Guess I'd better give up on retiring any time soon!


My Program:
Walking my little dogs every day. Throwing in strength exercises while I wait for the sniff breaks for them.



Personal Information:
Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.
Groucho Marx

If man could be crossed with the cat, it would improve man but deteriorate the cat.
Mark Twain

I always like a dog so long as he isn't spelled backward.
G.K. Chesterton



Other Information:
I'm a reader. Can't go to the bathroom without book in my hand (even if I don't open it in the little room). Love my cats and dogs.

When you don't think the program will work, remember the motto: Try it our way for at least 6 weeks and if you are not satisfied we will gladly refund your misery

    Just noticed your new picture! I've always thought I should eat a skinny person!! I used to tell people to be careful when they ordered meatball sandwiches!

    Loved that you remembered Mickey's birthday. He was my first (and maybe the best) love of my life!!

    Fearless already got them to postpone the TU trial until after January and they are pressuring plaintiffs to settle. Everything about this...everything...just makes me cringe. Especially, Bannon. It's like a live demo of what happened before WW2. Last night I kept thinking about the fact that, at 63, I will never see my country recover from this impending disaster.
    Who ever though we would make this much progress only to crash back 50 years.
    It's really depressing....I feel sorry for the younger folks
