Welcome, Karen! We're so glad you're here. Sounds like you've had quite a time. I'm so sorry about your parents. I lost my dad to cancer almost 2 years ago and still miss him terribly, so I can't imagine what you're going through with both parents being gone.

You are definitely in the right place for support and encouragement! Feel free to jump right into our discussions, challenges, etc.

My name is Karah aka fatbottomgrl or slinky slut.. that you have to read my home page for. There is a reason behind the madness of that name.

I would like to thank you for the invite to the Westie group. I didn't know you all existing. Of course, I am just coming back from being gone for awhile. That said, I'm ready to kick some butt!!!

I am a very proud owner of two Westies. Sam is 6yrs old and Szuka is 3yrs old. Sam was a rescued. Szuka, I bought from a breeder in Arizona. My Mom rescued Sam a year after my Dad passed away of brain cancer. She had him for two years, before she passed away of lung cancer. I lost both parents within three years of cancer. I miss them every day. Sam lives with me and is a very happy little man. I know this sounds crazy, I see my Mom and Dad in him. He does things exactly the way my Dad did.. makes me giggle. While Szuka is my baby, Sam will always hold a very special place in my heart. I love them both so much. Bring so much joy and laughter into my life. Szuka loves to say hello to all the neighbors when we get to go outside for a walk. She thinks she owns the neighborhood. Cracks me up.

I have been a member of SP for quite some time now. I was only 12lbs away to my goal weight, then my Mom died. I went through PTSD, stated gaining weight. I ballooned up to 230. Then, I found a boyfriend. Started gaining more weight. I am now back up to 265, very close to my 310... close enough for me. My friends said it was "love weight" my boyfriend and I are both "foodies" not good!! On the weekends, we love our food and cocktails. Specially in the summer by his pool. Come to find out, I was carrying a fibroid tumor the size of a baby's head. I had to have an emergency hysterectomy, which lead to complications, which led to more complications which led to more eating. I couldn't get out of bed. All I could do was eat, when I could keep it down. Even with all the throwing up I did, you would think I would lose weight. Not the case. Who knew toast would make you gain weight. It does when all you do is eat it and lay in bed. Monday, Jan 3rd, I have just been cleared to start a light workout. I did it. I am sore. However, I am going to get back on my treadmill and work out the soreness. I am going to make 2011 MY year. MY year consists of trying to avoid any more "bumps" in the road. I honestly do not think I can take them anymore. I need smooth sailing for a little while. And 2011 is going to be my smooth sailing.
If you read this entire blog, thank you! Means so much to me, not to mention how great it feels to get it all out in the open.
xoxo
