Big Dog "Duke"
Me and Great-Granddaughter
Merlin at 10 months old and 125#
I'm 72 and need to lose about 40 lbs, but taking 10 at a time so I don't get so discouraged. I need to improve my motivation, and get up and move. I was on SP about 3 years ago, but quit coming here and gained the weight back, so I'm back
I am a farmers wife and engaged in as much of the farm as I can, and understand. We do have some livestock and right now we share the chores, me in the morning and hubby in the evening, but once field works start the chores are all my baby, and I do enjoy them.
Feel free to write to me.
I will maintain my health the best I can.
I will walk to the best of my ability each day
I will watch my bad snacking habits.
My name is Linda, I am 72 year old, or as I say 60-12. I am married to my very best friend, and a farmers wife, so I wear a verity of hat. I have 3 grown sons, none who live near, 10 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren.
I love to read, favorite writers are Steven King, Dean Koontz, Robin Cook, James Patterson, etc. I also like crossword puzzles, zig saw puzzles, gardening, and anything outside. And of course our 2 dogs, Duke, a 3year old Great Pyreneese , and Merlin almost 2 year old Newfoundland/Great Pyreneese puppy.

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.
Attitude, to me is more important than facts.
It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than success, than what other people think or say or do.
It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill.
It will make or break a company...a church...a home.
The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.
We cannot change our past...we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way.
We cannot change the inevitable.
The only thing we can do is play on the one thing we have, and that is our attitude.
I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.
And so it is with you...we are in charge of our attitudes.

I used to have a comfort zone where I knew I wouldn't fail.
The same four walls and busywork were really more like jail.
I longed so much to do the things I'd never done before,
But stayed inside my comfort zone and paced the same old floor.
I said it didn't matter that I wasn't doing much.
I said I didn't care for things like commission checks and such.
I claimed to be so busy with the things inside the zone,
But deep inside I longed for something special of my own.
I couldn't let my life go by just watching others win.
I held my breath; I stepped outside and let the change begin.
I took a step and with new strength I'd never felt before,
I kissed my comfort zone goodbye and closed and locked the door.
If you're in a comfort zone, afraid to venture out,
Remember that all winners were at one time filled with doubt.
A step or two and words of praise can make your dreams come true.
Reach for your future with a smile; success is there for you!

Mikey is a pitbull mix. Probably with terrier. He was found in a burned out building and almost starved the death. He and his siblings contracted parvo and he spent 2 weeks in the hospital being treated for that and his starvation. Thank goodness for orgs like Pet Rescue of St. Louis. The go and rescue dogs in bad situations and then rehabilitate them and then adopt them out. He is a sweetie pit. Just been a long time for us to have a puppy puppy. He is 10 weeks old. They told us he has to stay calm since his surgery, That is impossible unless I put him in his crate which I hate to do. He seems to have come back with more energy than he left with.
