Hi and Welcome. I have just begun agility. Not a lot of running -- yet, but it was one of the goals I set at the beginning of my Spark People road. I'm sure that lab of yours loves walking with you. Best wishes! Sue

The reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue.

Hi Janet, welcome to the team.
You have a great exercise buddy with Sugar Bear! Labs are always ready to go for a walk, run, romp, swim, etc. Get comfortable with the nutrition and fitness trackers, they can give you instant feedback on how you are doing on a daily basis.

Welcome aboard to you & Sugar Bear! Your intro sounds like a perfect summary of what the Dog Motivator's team is supposed to be about. I know my dogs are the reason I'm trying to get fit, just so I can keep up, do dog sports, & not pant more than they do on walks! emoticon

We have members doing marathons, some just starting Spark, & everything in between. There are agility dogs, sled dogs, hiking companions, & some--like my Spaniels-- who snore encouragingly from the couch. They're the best companions regardless of speed!

Glad to have you join us!

Hi my name is Janet. My co-worker and I have a deal to lose weight by our Christmas Party. And our other co-worker found out about it and introduced us to Spark. I have 50+ pounds to lose, so I don't think I will hit my goal weight by Christmas but I hope to make a dent in my weight loss journey. I am really enjoying this website and I just started reading the book. The thing I enjoy most in my life is doing things with my baby puppy girl Sugar Bear. She is a Yellow Labrador Retriever and full of energy, always wants to play, go for a walk, or go to the dog park. I want to be able to have a more active lifestyle and go do outside activities with her such as hiking, camping, and biking. I live in San Diego county, it's beautiful weather here all the time. I want to enjoy that weather. I need to lose weight to be able to do both things. I have started my journey and I plan to finish it and this time I plan to keep it off. I love the resources that SparkPeople have to offer, they are really helping me on my journey. It adds a little fun to all the boring and repetitiveness of weight loss. I hope to make new friends here and become part of a supportive community.

You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, whose thoughts are fixed on you!
ISAIAH 26:3

Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring - it was peace.
-Milan Kundera

If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you; that is the principal difference between a dog and a man.
-Mark Twain
