I joined Spark People about a year ago. I thought the weight would just start falling off; but it didn't. I got discouraged and it seemed my whole life was about weight loss, sacrifice and no results.
I am starting over again and am going to be more realistic about my goals and medical conditions.
If I want things to be different then I have to make them different and if i don't then I need to stop torchering myself.
I love photography. It motivates me to leave the house and walk.
My beloved pet helps me with my depresssion. He gets me out of bed because I have to let him outside and feed him. He loves to got for car rides and play in the park.
I like to grow flowers and herbs. I have a small plot out side my apartment.
I like to visit the butterfly exhibit. It cheers me up.
I am greiving the loss of our service animal. He was a very good dog and great companion. I rescued him and his other brothers and sisters and found them all homes except for him. There was something extra special about him. I tested him to see if her cold be a service animal and he passed with flying colors! Even though I kept him to help my autistic son, I grew to love him like family. I'd ask my son if he feed his "little brother" or took him for his walk. He slept in my room until I fell asleep then he'd creep up on the bed. once he got old I stopped kicking him off the bed. I figured the poor litttle doggie deserved a little luxury after a life of good work. I can't immagine any other animal ever being that perfect for our family. He was unique and wonderful.

    Hi and welcome to "The Rainbow Bridge - Grieving the Loss of a Pet" Team. This team was started by my daughter in the loss of her and "our" beloved Tyler. Tyler was truly her dog but was loved and shared by many.
    I am indeed sorry for your loss of Crazyhorse. Our pets are family members and our grief can be very intense. Be sure to allow yourself to grieve just as you would for any person.

    Praise God for the Rainbow Bridge. Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
    All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
    The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
    They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
    You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
    Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

    It's good to meet and have you with us. May we all bring something to our team to help each of us in our grief. I am here to help you in any way I can.
    May God bless you as you continue your journey to a healthier you.
