THIS WORKS. WENT ON WEEKS CRUISE DID NOT GAIN A POUND.

my sister walks 15,000 steps a day at 63 years
old and has lost 105 pounds. she went from a size 24 to a size 10. all her health issues dropped off as the 105 pounds dropped off. took 16 months.

i gave up grain and sugary products and have lost 44 pounds at age 60. i went from a size 18 to a size 10 shorts and medium tops from a 1 or 2x. took 7 months.

use a salad plate as a dinner plate

use fruit for your sweet tooth cravings, an apple works great. helps with the chewing sensation.

fill your salad plate with half vegetables.

we are both still loosing weight until we reach our goal

emoticon Beth and emoticon to the team. Rescuing the Lab is a wonderful thing you're doing. Both of my dogs are rescues. My collie Radar was terrified of people when I got him. It took a lot of time and work to change that but it was so worth it.
I have some resources that were useful for me.
The first is a book "Help for the Fearful Dog" by Nicole Wilde. There are also two websites. The first http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/shy-k9s
/. The other one is http://fearfuldogs.com/.
Good Luck emoticon .

Hiya! I'm Beth and I'm new to SP and here in this group. Just wanted to say good morning to all and I hope everyone has a great day. I actually don't have a dog yet but am in the process of adopting a stray black lab named Lady who hangs out at our local non-commercial airport where my hubby takes flying lessons! She was abused and is real skittish so I go several times a week with treats to help earn her trust. So far so good! Anyways, I will keep you guys posted on how this turns out... wish me luck b/c she SO deserves a great furever home, emoticon
