I am updating my page as we moved from upstate NY to Tucson AZ. I am still unpacking and have yet to start back up finding a fitness center or exploring the facilities were we are renting. I will miss my team mates and friends in NYState. The information that follows was where I was and the wonderful support group that I left. I am competing as a team member with a great group of women. Our program is called Dare to Lose! There are some similarities to the biggest loser. We meet twice a week for 1 1/2 hours with our trainers, have challenges and weigh ins and are responsible for watching our food intake and exercising at least 2 more times a week. Each session is 8 weeks long so there is a mix of newcomers and those who have participated in earlier sessions. There is a lot of positive support from both the participants, trainers and other fitness center members. We are working hard at getting fit and losing weight.

    I think the kids are already set in there ways. I didn't spend enough time with them the first day, cause of the busy schedule and the dizzies. And you have to bond with them early on. I always blow in there nose right away, so they know my scent also, with Miss Kitty and Dillon I did, but Doc and Festus we were at the VA and not home to do it. So that is why I thing they are not very friendly.

    re: weight up and Doc's appt: OBVIOUSLY I schedule my doctor's appts at the wrong time---LOL!! Hope you are doing well... it was a long six weeks away. My stepdad passed away after a very short acute illness 20 April (following a long chronic undiagnosed one!). We are at peace with his decision, and glad he went quickly as he wished. (He was actually ticked off when told that assisted suicide would take at least 17 days--LOL!) I'm still getting used to the idea. fortunately my brothers and sister and I are all 'on the same page'... so there is a lot of support. I continued with my vacation plans, and enjoyed exploring some new territory and visiting family friends scattered about the west coast. Finally now getting back into my garden, exercise, and eating better. Take care, and keep in touch!

    Looking for a Fun Challenge this Summer? Want to get connected with a Team to support you through your Journey to a Healthier Lifestyle. If yes, then consider joining the BL Challenge that starts early June. Each week 11 teams of 24 Active, do fun nutritional and fitness challenges. The challenges promote a healthy lifestyle and If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Spring we had Gardening Time, Help Fill Peter Rabbit’s Basket and Bingo. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Summer challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the “BLUE BIGGEST LOSER” Icon, or copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Chit Chat.

    If it were Larry and he did not go to the doctor, how would you feel. Now think how he feels and consider seeing a dr. For both of you.

    Do you remember writing this to me. Well, I owe you so much for writing this, cause it was that statement the made me realize that I was cheating not only myself, but Larry maybe out of some of our time together. That was exactly what he did to me a year ago when he wouldn't go to the Dr. and we almost lose him, cause we waited so long. And I know what I went thru, and here I was doing the same thing to him. He admitted to me today, that he was getting worried about me. So, dear friend, I think you from the bottom of my heart for being a little firm with me, now that is a true friend.
