I'm new and I like dogs probably more than i like most people. I worked for a pitbull rescue for almost 3 years and discovered the unconditional love of animals. I have never felt so rewarded until the day I gained the trust of my first rehabilitated dog!
Hello! I re-started my weight loss journey again 6/12. I have lost 16 lbs. I think a lot of it is probably water weight, but I still look and feel better. I have a 5 yr old Aussie and he loves going for walks and playing. We had our first basic obedience class tonight. We did puppy obedience several years ago, so he did really well tonight. He made Mom proud!
I'm new to this team, but 5 months and 60 pounds down on SparkPeople... this seemed a perfect team since we just acquired a new dog this week... our dear old Lily died a few weeks ago and it seemed that the house was very empty, so we will pick up Sparky tomorrow. And he's young, only 10 months old; and active, a border collie/Aussie mix.. so I'll have no way to make excuses about a daily walk! We have cats, too.. but they're not exactly good examples of an active lifestyle!
Thank you all so much for the warm welcomes!!!! I was loosing weight on my own before I found out about the website, I lost 15lbs before I joined here on Friday. Since then I have lost 2 more lbs. I can't wait to get to my goal weight and I know already this is a great community to get inspiration and encouragement!!!
Good luck to you all as well. And hello to all your fur babies!
Kaizen, Japanese for "continuous improvement" or "change for the better," refers to philosophy or practices that focus upon continuous improvement of processes. Kaizen is a daily process of making changes and monitoring results, then adjusting as needed.
From G. Smith to B. Smith, welcome and good luck. Having a dog makes life so much better. Labs are great because they love water. Our Hobo (8 month old mix breed found in the desert at 2 months half dead) has now immigrated to Northern Canada with us and is discovering the wonders of lakes, rivers, sloughs and mud puddles.He still does not actually swim but he wades and delights us all the time figuring out how to get sticks without actually getting soaked.
"The world is one country and mankind its citizens" one of the many truths spoken by Baha'u'llah and "Love is the light that guideth in darkness, the living link that uniteth God with man, that assureth the progress of every illumined soul."
Hi Everyone I am checking in from Southern Maryland! I have an almost 3 year old Black Lab, Zoey. She loves to swim with me, go on walks, hikes, play fetch, soccer and tons of other stuff. I am looking forward to losing weight and getting back into shape!
