Hey everyone. Today is a little bit better. To date I have lost 115 pounds. I submitted a recipe today on sparkpeople, first time I have ever shared a recipe. I started my weight this time around at 315 pounds and now weigh 200. I am very excited. I will post pix I took today to show how far I have come. My old pants verses me today. There is a sad note though. I have an 11month old black lab pup that I have to rehome or he will end up in a shelter. I took him on with the intent and hope that I would keep a space open in the shelter for an animal that had no where else to go and to keep him safe off the streets. But he literally eats a bag of dog food a week and is too much puppy for my small kiddos to handle. I feel bad that I couldnt keep him from his fate or so it seems fate. The people that I got him from were just going to take him out and shoot him at six months old. He is a good dog and I know that they can get him adopted super fast if I dont get him rehomed by the end of the weekend. I also had a kitten we got for my five year old for one of his two companion animals. She had gotten out two weeks before her spay date and they ran her tests two days before and said that it would cost another 200$ to abort her babies and aside from my ability to kill unborn beings (human or otherwise) we couldnt afford it and had to pay a fee to cancel that spay. Now I have six kittens that all need homes as well, we are also having to rehome the momma kitty too. Our local shelter is bursting with animals and they cant take any of our animals until they have room. SO they are giving us food to help care for them, because we cant afford them and feed ourselves. They are also arranging forthe local humane society in Boise to hopefully be able to ease our situation, and have the surrender fees waved. We love them all and will miss them but it is what is best for them, our kids, and us. They are amazingly adorable and will probably be rehomed in no time at all. They will all, also be fixed and vaccinated upon arrival and either location. I picked me up an audio set to learn Italian. So there is that good point in the week. Well, it is time to fix supper now. I will check back in with everyone again a little later or some time tomorrow. Keep go go goin yall and dont give up. You are amazing, important, and beautiful. :)
OH here are the promised pictures!
