Here are two of my babies! They are pure bred white mini schnauzers.
Me & the gang - wild and crazy night! Bowl-a-thon for Jr. Achievement fundraiser!
I am 37 years old and I have three miniature schnauzers, Casey, Scotty, & Rocky. I am married with an 11 year old daughter, and an almost 21 year old step-daughter in college.
Now that kids are growing up, I am starting to do things for myself for a change. One thing I want desperately is to lose weight, get fit, and live longer. I am registered to return to college starting 04/06/07, working to finish my degree online.
My husband and I graduated from the same high school – but just 11 years apart. Sounds weird, but it works for us. What is weird is that I had his older brother for a teacher. They are almost 10 years apart in age!
I have a really hard time losing weight. I have all my life. It just got even harder after three instances of breaking my back. All total, I broke my back in seven different places. Any kind of impact just about kills me. However, if there is no impact, there is no impact – if you know what I mean.
I coach and play co-ed softball in the spring, summer and fall. This is about the most physical exercise I can do without landing myself in bed for days at a time. It just isn’t enough though.
Looking for friends to help motivate and help me keep motivated….
Anyone ever consider the Lap Band or gastric bypass? I have so much weight to lose, and it seems impossible with my back problems.
To get through another day. Doctors just want to put me on disability. I won't let them. They have a hard time believing I still work.
My husband and I live in the Tri-Cities, WA. We went to the same high school (a considerable amount of time apart mind you). We like boating,fishing,skiing, and camping.
Need to keep positive and motivated. Some times it helps me to help others, if that makes any sense.

Well, with fall in the air and the summer coming to an end. I know for myself it’s time to get back to indoor activities and allowing all of you to become my mentors again. I am not good at being an indoor person in the summer as my Garden, Canning and other activities keep me very busy.
So!! After September I plan to involve myself more on the Daily Chat message boards. There is no better support than what we all give each other to help us reach our goals.
"Take time to explore the site. Become familiar with all the wonderful tools available to help you on your journey, such as the food tracker and the exercise tracker. Also, concentrate on mastering your three 'Fast Break' goals: drinking 8 cups of water per day, going for a walk, not eating in front of the TV...whatever three goals you have chosen. Try to make those goals daily habits over time." I do hope to see more of you and you see more of me as we travel down this Journey of getting healthy and feeling better.
Remember MOTIVATION IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS.
