I share my home and life with 4-footed friends - 2 cats (Starkist & Shadowspawn), & 4 dogs. My little dogs are smallest dogs I''ve ever had - Samurai the Papillon, and Spartacus the rescued chihuahua (also known as "the little weasel) & their bratty little sister, Sharona - I think she’s a chihuahua/ Boston Terrier mix. She may be younger, but she’s bigger than the boys! Just added to the mini-pack at the end of January 2018 - a rescued teacup Chihuahua, Shiloh. She has a heart murmur, so the only way she can go on the walks is if I carry her.

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 ... about 25 pounds have found their way back.

I was an RN working 12 hour night-shifts - retired 30 November 2017 after 40 years in Federal service (including my 10 years as an Army Nurse). Still having trouble sleeping at night, and not napping in the daytime.

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.


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

    If every action you made had loving intentions, if every move we made was born of love, the world would be healed, the world would be whole. Brycen R. R. Couture

    My mom likes it with chocolate sauce! I like it more tropical sometimes - add coconut &/or pineapple! But it's good just plain!

    emoticon Have you made the 'ice cream' with them? It's pretty darn tasty! Just peel them and cut them in chunks and put them in a ziplock in the freezer. Then when you're ready, add them to the blender and whiz them until they are a consistency that you like. I didn't add milk or anything...it was one of those low carb eat your treats kind of things and I thought it was good. That's what I've been doing with the ones I'm afraid will get too dark. Everyone I've served it to seems to like it. I love banana bread but the fake ice cream is a lot less calories so I've been eating it instead!
