Determined to Succeed!

Weight has always been a battle for me and Spark has been a helpful place to keep me focused on my health journey. It does help having others who truly understand how hard this really can be and I love my SP teams and friends!

I went on "Shape Reclaimed" through a Nutritionist in October, 2013 and lost 87 lb. by March, 2014. It quit happening so I went off program mid July, 2014 and am back to doing it the normal way to get the last 40 lb. off. I don't regret the huge jump ...

I went on "Shape Reclaimed" through a Nutritionist in October, 2013 and lost 87 lb. by March, 2014. It quit happening so I went off program mid July, 2014 and am back to doing it the normal way to get the last 40 lb. off. I don't regret the huge jump start I gave my health at all after years of doing the right thing and not having results because my adrenals, thyroid and pituitary weren't working properly.

I have to constantly work at reminding myself that I am worth it as self-esteem was trashed during childhood. I know I am, but the bad stuff is easier to believe sometimes.

Your profile pic looks amazing. Even under and around your face you are so slender. You are fulfilling your Spark name: "determined" and it is paying off! emoticon

The foster pup's tail was damaged prior to us getting her into the rescue. Sometime in the last few weeks someone wrapped a wire around it to dock the tail. It became infected and swelled. We got her this week and took her to the vet because we noted a wound on her tail. That is what the vet discovered. She is in pain and has an infection. We are treating her with antibiotics and next week the tail will be fixed surgically.

Basset snuggling is my answer to Prozac. emoticon They're very theraputic. So are snoring Cavaliers and/or Pugs. But with Bassets, there's more to snuggle--and love.
