Hi there. I'm back after a long hiatus and have even more weight to lose now.

I did personal training last year and it worked great as far as my feeling better. At least until my trainer's schedule changed and I started going on back to back days which was not helpful for me. However it did let me know I can feel better if I stay at this!

Oh one good thing, in the past year I've also managed to pretty much kick the soda habit. I may have one when out to eat if it's a place I am unsure about the options. Or very rarely for a headache at work when nothing else works(ironic how this seems to work). I really hate water so this is a big deal. Mostly I'm drinking lower calorie drinks and some sweet tea or lemonade.

I'm also eating out somewhat less.

I'm back to trying Spark now and hoping I can get myself back on track.

    How did you end up with a weanling? They are a lot of work, I know, as I bred and raised horses for over 20 years! It is rewarding though, to go on and win with a foal that you bred and raised!

    Peanut, my new horse, is perfect for me. If I could choose the perfect mount for me, he would be it.. He is short (about 14 hands or a little less) pretty to look at (a red roan with 2 white socks behind) and kid broke gentle, and steady on the trails, which is the primary reason I want a horse........to trail ride! Plus, he has brains, seems to think and not just react to everything!

    I agree, it is uncomfortable when a horse drops his shoulder like that. My trainer was always teaching us how to frame our horses up and make sure that they weren't dropping their shoulders or cheating on us! I only have to remember now, how he told us to do it! emoticon

    Thanks for your comment on the photo of Fancy and new owner! She was supposed to have been a spotted Paint, her mom was a black tobiano mare and her Dad was a sorrel overo stallion. At least, Fancy got the 4 white socks and the blazed face! emoticon
