Hello! My name is Annette and I have a LONG way to go. I have 3 cats: Oliver, Sylvester, and Oscar. If I don't get this weight off, I might not be around to care for them. And the one thing I've believed in all my life is that when I adopt a critter it is a life-long commitment. I don't give them away when I move. I don't abandon them on the street. I care for them their entire lives. So the prospect of not being able to fulfill that weighs (no pun intended) heavily on my mind. But cats are my favorite thing in the world as you probably know by now if you've been to my Spark page at all. So this is now my plan! Yesterday (6-14-17), I began a series of Physical Therapy sessions to help strengthen my lower body muscles. The first session was hard. I could barely pedal the bike. I did a bunch of supervised exercises with a physical therapist. He was extremely encouraging. I'll be doing it 3x a week for about 8 weeks. I'm hoping it will be the beginning to losing some of this weight. I decided to eat really healthy while I do that. I just need to keep up with it! Wish me luck!

    Thanks Annette for the comment on my blog! You are right of course and we cannot save them all. Alls we can do is take care of the ones God has entrusted in our lives. I too care more for animals then the average person. My kids even accuse me of loving the cats more than them which of course is not true but there are times.. haha-ha, only because the cats do not talk back and get snippy with me as the kids do. Have a blessed day and upcoming week!

    Hi Annette! I didn't even realize you were an Ohioan! So nice to meet you! I'm in New Lexington (direction unknown as I am terrible at knowing those things especially out here-haha- came here from Arizona where everything was straight)... your cats are gorgeous! I have 5 indoor cats, three of which were strays that had been abandoned at a very young age either at my house or within my neighborhood. I have several more strays that come around for regular feedings and loving. I just can't seem to say no to them and they all know that and take advantage.. haha! I hope you don't mind but I added you as a friend! Have a wonderful day! God Bless!

    Hi Annette,

    Thanks for the advice but this just started the past couple days and I have not made any changes. It seems to be things on spark that require and to download the entire page. I can get into some things but a lot I can't.

    hugs....Mary Anne
