one of the roses I grew for a 12in almost dead stem with some roots

What I would like to go back to - was I ever that slim?

Right last intro text was done 5 years ago and a few changes have happened since then, not least not been here for two years so thought an updated intro was in order.

I am married and now a Kinship carer for a grandchild.

I have now only one JRT Tyson age 16 years and 7 months, we did have 4 but lost them at ages 16 1/2, 16 1/4 and 14 1/3 and miss them still so much.

I garden, well potter about out there and read and have learnt more than I ever wanted to know about Family Law this past year.

Hubby and I thought we could just let ourselves be old but life had other ideas and I guess a youngster in the house does keep you young and up todate with the world.

So back again to try and lose all this weight again.

My Goals:
I want to lose weight and become fit again.

This both for my health and for myself - as I don't like what I see, the me inside doesn't show in the me outside

Sadly only have one dog now - we had 4 for years but all but our boy has gone over the Rainbow Bridge but they lived to grow old, two passed at over 16 and one (whom vet thought would not get past 5) went at just over 14. Our boy is nearer 17 than 16 but he is ill and fading and doubt he will be here much longer but he is a fighter and so am I. One of our girls was knocked down age 2 and vet said brain damage, blind, forgot how to eat and drink, fitting 20 odd times a day, had right front leg amputated, she will not recover best put her to sleep, no way, I learned how humans with brain damage are treated to stimulate brain into learning again and started to teach her, within two years fits had stopped, sight back, running, eating normally and she lived till nearly 17 as healthy any uninjured dog, only t

Other Information:
I love all space sci fi - its a love affair that started in the 60's with the orginal Dr Who then orignal Star Trek and just grown from there......

My hobbies are growing fruit, veg and flowers in pots, knitting and running some yahoo and msn groups, I love archaology, medieval history, finding out what ooparts are discovered around the world and working out theries on how they fit into our history, learnt a lot about Family Law this past year as I had to do my own legal work for my kinship child so that certainly was something different, always something knew to learn - thank heavens for the internet and the phone, although still will look up what I need in books - cannto live without them have well over couple of thousand now and nearly all subjects. I am also a spiritual healer - just do it for free for those that ask, usually distance unless someone is willing to pay my travel expenses unless they are local as cannot afford to travel far but if anyone would like distant
