Welcome Samantha! I, too, have loads of weight to lose, but right now I just use this site to draw strength from all my "poodle loving" friends. My plate is too full (no pun intended but probably a true statement both ways-hehe) to concentrate on losing weight right now.
Can't wait to see pictures of your rescue babies.
Whenever I''m tempted to eat something I shouldn''t, I remember the following: "Don''t eat for the moment''s pleasure, for when that moment''s gone, the consequences will stay with you, from that moment on."
