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 for the comment on my sparkpage. I was going to change the background but I also like to look at it and think SPRING. I can look out the windows and see snow so don't want it on my page.

    It was below zero here this morning also, which is below the norm for us here. I love outside of Philly near the DE border. I did grow up in Maine so should be use to this!

    Have a great day and snuggle with those kitties!

    hugs....Mary Anne
