Hello! Here I go again, but THIS time I mean it!!

My name is Suzy - I live in the Natomas area with a small dog I found on the street in January and named Tiuy. Note to self: never give a stray a name you might not want to live with long term, on the basis that the owners will be found any day.

As much as I love where I live, I am sorry to say I have gained 5 pounds per year the 7 years I have lived here, as I no longer walk a lot of places, and yet I still enjoy ...
Hello! Here I go again, but THIS time I mean it!!

My name is Suzy - I live in the Natomas area with a small dog I found on the street in January and named Tiuy. Note to self: never give a stray a name you might not want to live with long term, on the basis that the owners will be found any day.

As much as I love where I live, I am sorry to say I have gained 5 pounds per year the 7 years I have lived here, as I no longer walk a lot of places, and yet I still enjoy my glass or three of wine in the evenings! Now 5 pounds doesn't sound bad, but 5X7 sure adds up...and I seem to be having a heck of a time dropping any of them at all. I've South Beached (dropped 8 pounds, gained 'em all back plus 5); Weight Watchered (dropped 10 pounds, gained 'em all back plus 5)....you see the pattern.

I actually enjoy a lot of exercise options but seem to have gotten myself into a nasty habit of working most every waking moment, then being too tired when I finally wander home. Nonsense of course!

But there we are.

My Goals:
Lose 5 pounds. And then do it again a bunch of times. The real goal is 130 but don't tell the turtle, because he will be too intimidated.

My Program:
Program under construction. My turtle is moving the wrong direction (started Spark at 156 lbs) and it is time for a new program. Stay tuned.

Other Information:
A little collection of enjoyable quotes:

Always carry a flagon of whiskey in case of snakebite, and furthermore, always carry a small snake.

--W. C. Fields

Horse sense is the thing a horse has which keeps it from betting on people.

--W. C. Fields

However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results.

--Winston Churchill

Not all chemicals are bad. Without chemicals such as hydrogen and oxygen, for example, there would be no way to make water, a vital ingredient in beer.

--Dave Barry

The rule by which he had always lived was that the best would have to do until something better came along.

-- P.G. Wodehouse

He was either a man of about a hundred and fifty who was rather young for his years or a man of about a hundred and ten who had been aged by trouble.

Doing okay here too. Just frustrated that I can't figure out how to get "healthy" to stick!

Suzy, thanks for the encouragement. I know I'm not always the most active sparkfriend, it's nice to come "home". And I looked a the fitbit and if it was in our budget I would be interested in getting one...

Thanks for checking in on me, Suzy. I'm up and down. I'm trying to be a substitute teacher but, with some paperwork snafus, I can't sub in the Sacramento City district until at least Fall (and I'll have moved to Red Bluff by then). I'm employed as a sub for the San Juan district but, with living in Elk Grove dropping off my daughter in South Sac...I need a little more notice than most if I'm going to do an early start job..

On a bright note, I have a booth at an art/craft show in Granite Bay this weekend. It's been forever since I did one of these.
We're slowly moving the little one and I up north. Hubby will have to commute for a couple/few years yet but Bug and I are moving up before she starts third grade in the fall. I miss it more every time I leave it.
