Dreaming in the desert ...

I share my home and life with 4-footed friends - 4 cats (Sahara, Shasta, Starkist & Shadowspawn), & 3 dogs. My 3 little dogs are smallest dogs I've ever had - Shalako the Pomeranian, Samurai the Papillon, and the newest one, Spartacus the rescued chihuahua. We've been walking about 30 minutes to 2 hours daily.

I got the lap-band surgery in Nov 06. So far, I've lost over 120 pounds (3/9/10). Recently changed my end goal to even less. (155). Sigh ...

I'm an RN and work 12 hour night-shifts - boy, does that throw your metabolism off! I have things planned in the daytime for my days off, and have to sleep in the daytime on work days. All the tips for improving sleep say "set a routine and stick to it". Uh, huh - that'll work.

My Goals:
Mini goal - I'm gonna bust thru 200 by the end of July!! DID IT!!! 7/13/09

Finally made 2 separate week weigh-ins of less than 175 - yeah! 3/14/13

Get in shape so my knees don't keep stressing.

Guess I'd better give up on retiring any time soon!

My Program:
Walking my little dogs every day. Throwing in strength exercises while I wait for the sniff breaks for them.


Personal Information:
Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.
Groucho Marx

If man could be crossed with the cat, it would improve man but deteriorate the cat.
Mark Twain

I always like a dog so long as he isn't spelled backward.
G.K. Chesterton



Other Information:
I'm a reader. Can't go to the bathroom without book in my hand (even if I don't open it in the little room). Love my cats and dogs.

When you don't think the program will work, remember the motto: Try it our way for at least 6 weeks and if you are not satisfied we will gladly refund your misery

ohh! I've been wondering about that place! I hear it's really expensive, but they grow their own stuff ingredients or use from nearby farms. What did you get?

and yay for getting over it!! emoticon
