Morning! I'm Debbie.

We had to put our 13 yo Clifford to sleep just before Thanksgiving. My children grew up with him. I think it was the hardest thing I ever had to do. But he was suffering terribly.

4 days before Christmas we adopted Athena who is almost 6 mos. Shepherd/lab mix. She keeps me on my toes. She's become our walking partner. Hopefully with more training she will stop pulling me down the street and/or trying to chase cars!

Thanks. I just found this reply by stumbling around. I always thought I was pretty internet-savvy, but I am just lost here. I post a question and can't find the answer--well, I found this one. I absolutely don't understand points, teams etc. but I will keep trying. Thanks!

emoticon Kat and emoticon to SP, and this team !!

Don't worry, you'll get use to the site itself. As far as a goal, don't set yourself up for failure, make your own goals, and try to stick to them as much as you can. Eating healthy and getting in some exercise is the key. As time goes by, you will work into what does work for you. Don't get discouraged. You can also search for team with the same interests that you have. Who knows, they may have a team for Vets !!

Welcome to Hayley and Nitro, too. So sorry to hear of the loss of one of your fur-babies. It is so difficult to lose them. emoticon

Good luck to you. emoticon

If you haven't failed, you haven't lived !

Laugh, and the world laughs with you !!

Hi everyone. My name is Kat and I have no idea how this site works. I asked around and they said to join a team, which I did. Still don't understand the points etc and I haven't joined a goal because I am not sure I can do any of the ones listed with my crazy schedule. Anyway, love all animals (I am a vet) and currently have two Jack Russell Terriers. Hayley is 16. We lost her partner in February to brain cancer emoticon and got Nitro this summer. Can someone please tell me what to do? I am starting back on my healthy eating and exercise tomorrow and understand the trackers (Ithink!) but without support, it won't work. Thanks emoticon

My name is Sue, I have 2 dogs and two cats at this time. Max is my Cocker Spaniel and BreeSea is my Sheltie. We all live in Nova Scotia, Canada (where winter is beginning to sneak in!) Max and I have walked everyday since September 11, BreeSea came along sometimes buts she's had a few medical issues. Both dogs have trained in agility and we still play in the backyard with a full agility course.
Very glad to be here. :)

Hi - My name is Judy and I have 7 furbabies and all are rescues. I live west of Winston Salem on five acres in the country. All but one of my kids have been drop offs (people dumping them). Bear is my adoptive daughter that I adopted from a family and she is half chow/half rott. Katie was thrown from a moving car wrap in phone wire and she is part lab. Smoke, Natasha, Ditzy and Buddy were all dropped off at one time or another and have stayed. Boris came to us when we stopped to make sure he was okay laying on the side of a rode. He jumped in our truck. You could count his ribs and our vet had to surgically remove the leather belt around his neck - per vet he is an Alaskan Malmute.

I love them all and would not change one thing about my life with them.

Hi there. I'm Bill and I love my dogs. I have a Heinz 57 (Dali) and an Aussie (Blue). They're both spoiled rotten, but very disciplined. The Aussie and I train for eventual agility competition. We have been at it since February of this year. I'm also a cycling fanatic and bike almost daily for 2+ hours average. My beautiful and wonderful wife is a runner/walker and competes in 10K races. Together, we're a happy family.

Hi guys! I'm a 23 year old university student from Canada. I started my weight loss journey in May following the Weight Watchers program. I have lost almost 25 lbs so far, and want to lose another 75. I'm taking my weight loss nice and slow (in no rush to lose the weight, but rather want to adapt a new approach to eating, exercise, etc). My journey so far has been full of ups and downs, and it has been very emotional, but also very rewarding. I have had to learn how to make a lot of lifestyle changes, and am still learning things about myself everyday.

I have two lovely little fur babies - Daisy and Lulu. Daisy is a havapoo... tiny, cute, feisty, full of energy, independent, sassy and incredibly smart. Lulu is a shih tzu. She is a rescue dog and is honestly just a big lump. She loves to be with me and just be near me. She follows me all around the house. She is so awkward and clumsy and hilarious.

The only journey is the journey within.

I am 28 years old and I have struggled with my weight all my life. I have done Spark People, Weight Watchers, Flat Belly Diet and on and on. I don't stick to anything. Seeing the big 4-0-0 on the scale has finally (I hope) scared me enough to get motivated. Will this time be different? I can't look into the future and say YES THIS IS IT! All I can do is make myself a new promise, to try one day at a time to make small baby steps. No beating myself up for not doing the right thing every second..

I train dogs and I face a lot of discrimination because of my size. I just smile and try not to let it bother me. My weight has nothing to do with my skills. It does hamper my agility showing but that doesn't mean we still don't go out and race around the course as fast as I can. haha If anything it means I have to train harder and better because my dog gets out ahead of me and I have to still give him the ques on which equipment to hit. Though I am currently taking a break from showing of any kind due to financial issues.

Anyways that is me. :) I love new friends so feel free to add me and stop by to say hello.

Hello, my name is Sharon but you can call me Pasture Puff, hehe. I have three dogs. Didn't think I'd have more than one but when my husband became bedridden and I had to go outside after dark a lot to take care of any needs down at the barn I realized I'd feel better if I had another dog who was a better guard dog so I went looking and found two, which I couldn't decide between so I got them both. It's been a challenge because all three of my dogs are female alpha types! It sure made me have to rise to the occasion of being the pack leader. I look forward to getting to know this team and making some new Spark friends!

Good Morning, my name is Nona. (not short for anything) It does mean the #9 in Latin and I am the 9th in my Family. I grew up on a farm in Ct. I always had dogs all around me as well as the usual cats, cows horses chickens turkeys and pigs.When I got married I married a city boy who at the time didn't realize his calling. The only pets he ever had were fish. So I was a nurse forever until I hurt my back and wound up on the disabled list. We moved to Florida 7 years ago to get away from the cold. It was great for a few years but this past year the snow and the grandkiids did a number to my will power. We sold our house and are presently getting ready for the northern move. I think it will look a lot like the beverly hillbillies but we will conquer. I have 4 wonderful dogs and a turtle. We would move mountains for any of them. I will tell you about them in another discussion. I just wanted to jump in before I got busy and say hello and tell you a little bit about me. Have a great Wednesday.

wake up every morning. Put your feet on the floor and accept that this is a new day. I will succeed, because I am awesome!!!!!

BESCATS, yes, I do find the same thing. I am in a lot of groups and maybe too many myself, some because I hope to get some medical info from them, some because I just thought they would be an interesting group like I found this one to be. I kind of wonder if some of the people are just shy and are just taking their time reading our post before deciding to post some thing themselves. But I also know that several people that had their security set so that we could not see them and send them friend request had no idea that it was like that and had no idea how to change it until I told them. So for some like that I wonder if they were expecting more of the current members to welcome them and friend them, and when it wasn't happening, maybe they just gave up and moved on to another group. I know the automatically get a welcome from the team and from spark people when they join. But you would think that SP would make it clearer to them on how to change their security setting and why they would want to do it. But too they could be like me, when I first signed up I joined a whole bunch of groups that sounded interesting to me, thinking I was going to get articles from them and such. I didn't realize in the beginning that it was actual groups that I was suppose to be participating in and that it would be so hard to really participate fully in each one. I had thought about maybe leaving some of them, but then I see that they all seem to have the same thing going, lots of members in them, but really only a smaller handful constantly participating. So then I didn't feel so bad about not being able to be so active all the time in them all. And I even started joining more new ones and struggling ones thinking maybe I could lead some of their members to joining some of the more active other groups that I am in that they might be interested in too. Not sure what else to do about it. But try to get the word out to people with their security set high, and get the word out about teams that I think are really worth being in.

emoticon y'all! My name is Connie and I'm in South Carolina. I've been off and on SP since 2008. I'm back and looking for teams that are chatty. I've joined some teams in the last few days that I'm interested in but I guess the people there are off the wagon at the moment. emoticon I have 2 pups and I saw this team on another members page and thought I'd pop in and say hi! I look forward to getting to know y'all. emoticon

Thanks for the information. I still would think if they joined a team, they would take a look around the team to see what's going on. So many join teams, but you never see them, and I have to wonder why they join ??? I don't belong to many teams because I know I couldn't keep up with them, and I have left teams that never do anything. I'm sure you must find the same thing.

Laugh, and the world laughs with you !!

I have noticed a lot on all my teams with the security set so high we can not send them friend request either. I have been trying to send all of those that I can a msg to let them know how to change their settings if they would like. Most are happy to receive the instructions. Only one stated that they didn't want to change the settings and only a few didn't respond at all. So I think that will help too if I keep trying to see those type of msgs out to whom ever I see has the security high.

We seem to have gained many new members lately, but most are not taking the time to introduce themselves or their canine friends. The team likes to send out goodies to the new members, so please introduce yourselves to us !!

Hi all, I am Janette, I started in May. I am 53, I have a 6 yr old dog, and a puppy. I belong to a lot of groups and I am a co leader of one too. Plus my boyfriend has a son that lives with us half of the time that is turning 9 shortly. So I am pretty busy. I haven't been in this group as much as I should. I will try to do better at it. Feel free to send me friend requests, the more friends the better. I started in May at 170 and now I am down to 151.5. I wish you all the best always.
