Hey everyone! My name is Liz and I'm a veterinarian! I graduated in June 2011 from The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine. I'm currently living in Texas, and want to learn to balance diet and exercise with the rest of my life. I've struggled with my weight for a while, and I want to get it under control once and for all!


"In all our woods there is not a tree so hard to kill as the Buckeye. The deepest girdling doesn't deaden it, and even after it's cut down and worked up into the side of a cabin it will send out young branches, denoting to all the world that Buckeyes are not easily conquered." -Daniel Drake, 1833

"'I wish' is for the dreamers. 'I will' is for the successful."

"Look not at how far you have to go. Look instead at how far you have come."

"It doesn't matter why you can't. Until you can, your dream will remain a dream and never become a goal. Don't let excuses hold you back."

"You don't get what you wish for. You get what you work for."

"Strength is the product of struggle."

"Don't complain about things that you're not willing to work hard to change."

"Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out." - Robert Collier

"Strive for progress, not perfection."

"I'm not losing weight; I'm getting rid of it. I have no intention of ever finding it again."

"Don't make excuses; make changes!"

"Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're right."

    Any luck getting after it yesterday? You know, your first day back! I'm off for some yoga, just 6 simple poses to start the day with the blood pumping. If you want, I'd be happy to share the ones that help me get my butt off the couch.

    We adopted Sam through dachshund rescue (we also keep foster dogs). Sam had a disk injury. His former owners had surgery done, but they could not keep him and keep up his care...so they surrendered him to the rescue group. We fostered him a while and decuded to adopt him...he is a great dog. Sam is also blind...but nothing slows him down. Check out his youtube videos...search "Sam the Doodle". Take care...good luck with your Sparkpeople adventure!
