If God sends you down a stony path,
may he give you strong shoes.

Jesus, help my eyes to see
All the good Thou sendest me.
Jesus, help my ears to hear
Calls for help from far and near.
Jesus, help my feet to go
In the way that Thou wilt show.
Jesus, help my hands to do
All things loving, kind, and true.
Jesus, may I helpful be,
Growing every day like Thee.

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you."
Deuteronomy 31:6

Member Since: 8/31/2007

Fitness Minutes: 359,374

My Goals:
I currently weigh 150.
1st goal is to get down to 142
2nd goal 135

I did get down to 143, and stayed there for a few years. When my Hubby was laid off I gained weight again. He found a good paying part time job, and I am now down to 145. Well, I am back to 155, so time to get serious again. Now that the weather is nicer I can get back into walking with my dog in the hills and gardening.

My Program:
Walk my dogs everyday. What better way for one to get in good exercise. The dogs will thank you. Your body will thank you, and you will thank yourself. I also enjoy photography. 9 out of 10 times I have my camera in hand as I am hiking with the dogs.
I got back into my Cardio Bike. I enjoy riding it along with videos on YouTube. Makes the riding so much more enjoyable.
Working out with Jessica Smith, and Leslie Sansone's Walk at Home
I really like their videos.
This year my Hubby bought me a fold-up Treadmill. It has come in handy since I am not outdoors as much as I used to be.

Personal Information:
I grew up in Granada Hills So. Calif. I now live in the high desert among the lizards and coyote's. Still in So. Calif. When I go for walks I just love to see the Red Tail Hawks flying around. Such a beautiful bird!
So. California PST

Other Information:
I am proud to say that I am related to Wild Bill Hickok. Anyone out there that loves the wild west history? I also admire Annie Oakley. What a lady for in that time period! If you ever want to read about who Wild Bill really is, and not tall tales, then grab a book written by Joseph G. Rosa. He is a friend of the Hickok family.

    HI there,
    Thanks for the Welcome to Dog Lovers :) My two little corgis are such awesome dogs, it will be nice to share all their funny stories :)
    I just wanted to say, I know exactly what you went through, regarding your parents. When I was 25, my mom separated from my dad and moved across the country. A few years later, she found out she had cancer. It took her from me four years ago. She was my best friend and I miss her every day. I weighed about 60 pounds lighter back then! Because of everything that happened to her, along with getting married and moving to another state, I definitely found comfort in food. This year I vowed to get the pounds off. Anyway, good luck in your own weight loss and hang in there!

    Thanks for the comment on my page. The more I visit the pages and peek around here and there, I am amazed. The people here are so creative. What kind of dog do you have? Is it a daushhound? Or something else. I must love my dogs. I just spent over 100 dollars at the vet just for heart worm. My recent revelation is not to take them at the same time. It is too expensisve. One at a time and I am still choking. Ugh! I will have to get my other basset up on my Spark Page. His name is Tucker and he is really a doll. Audrey

    Thanks Jeanne for welcoming me to Horse Lover's Unite and your gracious comment on my horse. I think he's beautiful but I am probably prejudice. Your dogs are beautiful. We have 5 dogs: 2 shelties, a great pyrenees, a walking coon dog and a golden retriever/irish setter mix. Also 3 cats (two who live in the house and 1 barn cat). We also have 4 other horses. I am sorry about the loss of your parents. I lost my mom in December 2006 after a long brutal fight with diabetes. During the last year & a half of her life I gained 30+ pounds and really want to get it off. I can truly relate to your situation. Good luck on your weight-loss journey.

    Hi Jeanne, thanks so much for your message. I'm still finding my feet on the site at the mo. but look forward to sharing my doggie tales & weight loss progress with you all soon. Everyone is so supportive i'm glad i stumbled upon 'Spark People' too!
    Your dogs are adorable! Sarge reminds me of my dog Kel, a handsome lad who obviously didn't have the best start in life as since we rescued him he has become my shadow & I know for sure he would protect us no matter what!
    So sorry to read about your loss. My Mum died of cancer, hence the not so happy 5 years... But for the sake of those that love you, you have to remember life is for living & I want to grab it with both hands! lol.
    Thanks again Jeanne, speak with you soon x

    Hi Jeanne. I just wanted to stop by and and see who that cute little fur kid was in your member photo. All your dogs are just as cute as they could be. I would love to have a dog, but right now time is an issue.

    I too lost both my parents this past year. My dad on Valentine's Day (total shock) and my mother on Halloween. This has been a very trying year and fitness and nutrition were just not part of my focus at all. As a matter of fact all the weight I had previously lost came back and then some. All I can do it fix it so that is what my goal is for this year -- even if it takes the whole year I will be fine with that. Well you take care and I hope to see you around = )
