Me with one of my many rescues.
Chainsaw carving I did for NY St. Bernard rescue.
Chainsaw carving I did recently.
I am a cowgirl at heart. But have not been able to ride in many yrs. I have a multitude of medical issues from arthritis, tendonitis, PTSD, and bi-lateral total knee replacements 2 yrs ago. I have unfortunatly gained 80 lbs in the last 3 yrs and really need to lose it. My goal is to swim 3 times a week because walking is not recommened by my foot dr. I also hope to restart my art career. I sew, paint, and chainsaw carve, but the arthritis has really limited my abilities. I am hoping that reducing my weight will help.
I lost 12 lbs. by staying between 1000-1200 lbs., then stopped losing weight. Went to a nutrition Dr. who put me on a Sparing diet. I have lost 8.5 lbs. in 3 days. Feeling good.
I am from NY. Born and raised. I have 4 beautiful kids, one grandchild, and one on the way. I am an artist, but have devoted a large part of my life to rescuing unwanted animals.
I am a huge fan of Supernatural, Bones, NCIS, Vampire Diaries, Leaverage, Men of a Certain Age, Covert Affairs, Y&R, B&B.and Ellen. I read James Patterson, Iris Johansen, Supernatural books, vampire books....

I love your tiki carvings! We have an annual carving contest in our community that takes place over the July long weekend. The smell of the wood carving mixed in with the roar of 20 (and more) chainsaws is a sight and sound to witness! I read that you are planning on swimming....how are you doing with that?
