I am still a couple of pounds away from the original goal I had in mind 5 years ago when I joined, but I know I will be there soon - and even if I never lost that last 2 or 3 pounds I am still so much better off than I was back then!

Wow! A daily workout everyday for years. Losing 60 pounds and maintaining it. The one thing we have in common--you're "a senior"--like me. You both motivate and inspire me. Next year at this time I hope I have daily exercise and weight loss in commone with you as well. Thank you for sharing your journey.

Hi! Your story is quite inspirational. Thank you for sharing it with SparkPeople members.

I noticed the picture of Frodo on your page and wondered, is he a Bichon?

We had a little Bichon girl for about 11 years until a little over a year ago when she had complications from a surgery for bladder stones and didn't survive. She was the best dog ever, and I still miss her terribly. I have thought about getting another Bichon, but almost feel it would be disloyal to her. Weird thinking, I know.

I admire and am a bit jealous that you and your wife have 6 rescues. Now is not a good time financially or from a family-need perspective for me to take on several dogs, but I will as soon as circumstances allow.

Again, thanks for the inspiration. Enjoy those fur babies!
