Soon to lose our dog of 13 years!

I'm an emotional Wreck!!!!

Decisions had to be made today, Trooper hasn't been himself all winter and he's been to the vet 3 time in the past week, Today he was wheezing, and theVet told me his heart is just about ka-put, along with his liver, diabetic and thyroid troubles.

That's my sheltie for ya! A trooper, and that's how he got his name! (really he got it when Lacey was 3, she used to drag him all over and in every position) That's where Trooper name came from.

Bob Lacey and I have been talking about it and what we should do when the "time" came, the DR said he's in pain, that's why he hasn't been eating or drinking anything. When he said the WORD... pain... I know its time.

So Friday at 3 pm were all going to hold him while he goes to the big backyard in the sky!! (dang, here comes the tears again)

My heart hurts!!! Do you realize he's greeted me at the door about 4700 times!! not including lunch time


For those of you who read this, pass the word, that I may be MIA the next few days, I'm going to get the WIS team set up for May. But my mood, and personality suck, so... see ya later!

Thanks for listening and understanding!
Barbie

    Definitely the worst decision that a furry pet mama ever has to make. We made the same decision in June when our dog (Little Dog) had to be put down. She was 17 years old and our first baby. We got her when we moved into our first home and months before our oldest daughter, Dani arrived. I still go outside and expect to see her......

They are a part of our family just as much as any child.

I am so glad I took a minute today to log in. As you know I've been MIA a bit with my sister in town. I wish I had more time to write/talk this morning but I actually came to work for a little while.

Anyway.... I am SOOOO SORRY to hear about Trooper. I have also held the paw of a dear pet that I loved when her time came. As painful as it is, just remember that you are doing the right thing for Trooper. I will be thinking of you.
Love,

    Barbie my heart and thoughts are going to be with you and your family for the remainder of the week. I am crying pretty hard as I am typing this, so please bare with me if it doesn't make sense.

I can only imagine how you and your family must feel. Our dog Ginger is getting old and starting to have some troubles, but I can't even think about her not greeting me at the door each time I come home. They become a big part of our families and I think it hurts just as much when they pass on.

Hold on to the memories and like everyone else has mentioned put photos up of Trooper. Take the last few days and really spend some time with him when you can. I am sure he would love that. (Wow, I am really crying now!)

I'll definitely be thinking of you and sending you lots of hugs and warm wishes. And don't forget to smile (even though your attitude sucks) because I bet you have lots of great memories with him that can put one on your face! And take your time getting back on here.

Take care Barbie and remember we all have you in our hearts and on our minds.

Lots of emoticon and emoticon,
Lynn

Tears are flowing here along with yours. I so hurt for you! We went through the loss of our beloved Geoffry last year and it ripped us apart. His pal Mozart is now nearing 15 and we know we won't be blessed with him for much longer. Our pets bring us so much love that it breaks us when they leave us. My prayers are with you.
Hugs and comfort.

We were set to take her in on a Wednesday afternoon and she passed away the day before on her own. It was like she didn't want us to have to make the decision or go through it.

I'll be thinking of you. Take care.

    Barbie, I so understand your pain over this. We had to make the same decision about our Shih-tzu, Henry a few years ago. It was tough, but he was 15 1/2, had a stroke and was really going downhill. We didn't know he had a stroke at the time but just knew he was "old" . It was a tough decision, that I made one morning with Steve's help. We called the kids to come over and say goodbye. None of us had the courage to be there for it, so my BIL came and got him. It was a tough time. We buried Henry in our back yard under the plum tree and my daughter painted a headstone for his buriel site. (here come my tears) ....we go down and talk to him most days all summer long :) Keep pictures of Trooper up always and remember the good memories you have, hun. Sending you lots of hugs. You're doing the right thing. Now dry your tears, ok?

I'm up early this dreary Monday,
As you know I'm not a daily blogger, but lately I've been inspired by a few blogs I've read. Maybe its time to clear my head.
So here I go.

My last blog was titled very depressed, I'll try not to have that again, I'll wait until the end of this blog to see what this should be titled.

Did you notice I've gained the last 3 month in a row? I layed in bed on Sunday and tried to figure out what my issues are, I'm stumped, I know my husband has been home a bit more, and my DD needs me so little now that she driving and works a job. I think I'm up about 10 pounds.
Even exercise isn't as appealing as it used to be, and if you know me, I love my aerobic classes. I lived to log my minutes onto spark for years.

So here I sit @ 3:30 in the morning wondering where the heck my mogo for dieting went. Feeling a bit guilty about the food I ate right before bedtime.
I even feel fatter, my arms and legs and chest, my belly still feels good. Thanks to my weeklly abs class.
Theres are reasons to drop a few pounds in my life too right now too. 25th class reunion this summer. Summer in general. and were FORSURE going on vacation in Jan/Feb of 2010.

So there ya go! That's me in a nutshell. I still don't have a title for my page though.

Nevemind... I just got it off a coupon! LOL!


Thanks for listening! Maybe I'll try it again tomorrow with a what I'm going to do about it blog!

    I know exactly what you mean Barbie. I seem to have a good run going, and then suddenly, I'm distracted by work and family. I do end up getting in cardio minutes, but it just seems as if I'm going through the motions, and the weight just doesn't come off.

If I had an answer for you, I would certainly let you in on the secret. But, I'm still trying to figure that one out for myself. But, just know, we're all here for you whether you gain some or lose some. We're all in the same boat!

    It is hard to keep this up. It's so much easier to fall back into our old habits. The weather lately has not exactly been very helpful and could be contributing to your emotions.

If we were closer I would happily be an exercise buddy with you. Is there someone near you that you can walk or workout with? Might help you stay on track, and doing it with a friend is always wonderful.

You are such a warm and bubbly person and so motivating to so many of us, but I know you've been struggling. Remember that you're not alone. There is at least one other person right there with you!!!

Big old hugs to you!!

    Oooooo, Barbie, can I join you in the land of 'what the h**l went wrong? I am so in the same place right now. I woke up this morning with a renewed sense of purpose. Of course, I wake up every morning with a renewed sense of purpose - LOL. I just need to stop overthinking the whole darned thing and 'do it'.

For sure, Lacy growing up and needing less of your time is one reason. It's hard when those girls start doing things on their own. I'm not sure I've adjusted yet and my daughter is 28! Also, hubby being around more is a factor. We always eat 'worse' things when we're just hanging out. I don't consciously think of it as self-destructive, but I suppose it is.

I LOVE the title for your blog! You know, when you're a sunny person, like yourself, and things get a little cloudy, people get shaken a little - it's different from their norm. Lots of pressure, huh? But don't you worry about anybody but yourself. You'll figure this out (at least for a while). I believe that if you and I can even go a LITTLE bit in the weight loss direction it will motivate us to do more. At least, that has been my history. I'm with you on this girlfriend and looking forward to your next blog. I've decided to take your suggestion that I blog once a week to heart - you do it, too!

Love you - Debbie emoticon

VERY Depressed!!!

Monday, December 29, 2008

Well, I'm not one to blog to much, but the e-mail today said it helps keep you on track.

1st off, I gained though the holidays! I bought a new scale today that matches the YMCA and my Dr. scale. Which means... I right away gained 4 lbs on top of the 6 holiday pounds. that's 10 pounds to start out the NEW Year... NO FAIR!!!
So I swollowed my pride and moved my ticker!

Are ya following my depression so far?


Next.. I had a body fat % test done at the Y, Oh my! I was in tears, Really.

Then my lovely daughter and I had a slight tiff, Grrr teenagers! You would think I was pmsing, but I'm not!

I did have a Sparkfriend that I cried to today. (thank you for that by the way) She put a few things straight for me! XXOO

Ok, so here's where I turn things around. I went to the Y, did an aerobic class, which I felt like a over weight tuba player holding his tuba while working out! Ha!
Then after, I signed up for a 7 week Saturday morning sunrise class (7am) So the plan is to work out 3 days a week Forsure.
Well, since I was bitting ALL my bullets today! LOL! When I got home I had Hubby take 2 full lenght photos of me in my aerobic clothes. Sigh...
I should go to bed now!


I'm leader of the Wisconsin team, which now has 50,000 members, its a bit overwhelming, and I just hope they know, I'm struggling right along with them, I of course do not have all the answer to weight loss as you can see, but I'm there to cheer them along. I do love doing it, and have made wonderful friends along the way. So Thats not really a complaint. I just want everyone to know... I'm struggling too I guess.

Hey, Their right, I am starting to feel better blogging.

Thanks for reading gang... today was just a bit much with the scale and body% and photo thing. don't ever do them all on the same day. LOL!

Much love all!
I'm going to make 2009 the year I make ME proud!

    Barbie,

First off ~ I can SO empathize with your Barbie. I have struggled off and on pretty much for as long as I have memory. I really want to just be normal~ NOT ~ stick thin, but normal size. I have also struggled with depression for many many years. Last week I was PMS'ing and this week of course it is just MS'ing. DS was home from school most of last week due to an incident the week before as well as 5 other boys. He made a stupid choice and knows it. DH was a bear and continues to be a doofus. I like when he is at work and I am home with the kids by myself. That is pretty sad huh?.
We have to do a health risk assessment every year for DH's work. I really want this year to be a good one. I want to be at or very close to goal. I hate taking that fat % test. OMG!!! Barbie~ you can do this. It sounds like you have a great plan and have set things in motion. I wish that I lived in Point so that I/we as a family could utilize the YMCA. My second son went to gymnastics there and loved it. He was really good too.
I am proud of you for hanging in and working through this. I know that it is not easy. Thank you for your honesty here in this blog and I am cheering for you!

God Bless,
Wendy emoticonMMWWWWAAAA!

    I too gained weight over the holidays and am totally depressed about starting the New Year off this way! I have fallen off the wagon and need to hop back on! I did one of these BMI calculators online and it said I was overweight. Just this past summer, my doctor said I needed to stay active but I was still within my healthy BMI. Now all I get from my online BMI is that I am overweight!!! I don't even want to go to the doctor to ask for help because he will see how much weight I have gained over the last couple months! I will offer any encouragement that I can to you if you'll do the same for me! It helps to have a friend that is going through the same things you are (or similar). You can do it girl!

  Hi, Barb.
I will be coming home to Point in a few weeks. Am in Colorado right now. I'm going to try to do a lot of cross country skiing whenn I get there. Do you ever take part in this sport? If so, maybe you would like to join me? I've never done the body fat thing at the Y. If I did, I'd also be mucho depressed.
I've raised five daughters through teenagerhood so far and have three left to go; it can be one of the most enjoyable, yet miserable times of your life.

I hope to get on some teams soon.. just need to figure things out.

I gained 10lbs too, a hard 10, that I can't seem to budge even 2lbs off. So thanks for caring and visiting me, ... I will be on the ACTIVE list in 2009. I got a heartrate monitor and I am going to use it. It will tell me what my calorie burn REALLY is, and how to keep my heart rate in the burn mode. We will be active in the new year, that's how you lose it (and portion control). You Go Girl!!!

    Dearest Exercise Sparkbuddy,
You are one brave woman to have faced all that in one day. But being the strong supportive sparker that you are, you know that the only way to get back on the wagon when you slip and fall is to put all the negative stuff behind you and move forward with a positive attitude. If there is anything that I have learned about you over the past year (??? how long has it been??) is that you have a positive attitude -- AND YOU WORK YOUR TAIL OFF! So, just think of this as a little bump in the road on a long journey that we are on. I have complete faith in you and I'm right here taking the journey with you.

A Barbie review!

Sunday, August 31, 2008

Well, I stunk up the last challenge. I haven''t weighed myself for about a week.

Tah-Duh, Tomorrow is September 1st. I think its time for me to review myself.
Well, I do good when I write eveything down, I did that for about 3 weeks of the last challenge, I love the healthy feeling of good for me food and exercise.
And August was the worst month for me with exercise too, I did have a few hoof problems, but I'm better now.
The food... oh the food, I think I eat pretty healthy, just too darn much, maybe if I eat more protein, I'd fill up faster.
And that dog-gone beer I love, That's gotta go!
Ya know, I thought writing this all down may motivate me some, I sure hope so. Say a little prayer for me if your reading this. Thanks!


So here I go again gang,
I'll weigh myself in the AM
And September 1st.
1. Journal Everyday! If I bite it, I write it.

2. Keep in my calorie range everyday.(1450 weekdays 1600 weekends)

3. Drink all my water everyday.

Weekly goals:

1. Exercise 4X a week. 50 min or more each.

2. lose at least 1 pound a week. ( keep your fingers crossed)

It's My time!!

Sunday, June 29, 2008

Look Who hasn't blogged since March! ME!!
Surpise!!
I haven't been serious about losing weight in awhile, partly because of summer, partly because I've been lazy.

I'm recommiting Monday June 30th and going to lose5% of my body weight by Labor Day.
That's about 8 pounds or so. I have a few special friends here on SP joining me in this mission. But I could use a few more cheers along the way.

Barbies Personal Daily Goals:

1. Journal Everyday! If I bite it, I write it.

2. Keep in my calorie range everyday.(1450 weekdays 1600 weekends)

3. Drink all my water everyday.

Weekly goals:

1. Exercise 4X a week. 50 min or more each.

2. lose at least 1 pound a week.

Seems pretty simple when you look at it written down. Now start the hard part.

There! It is written!!
