Misty at the 2009 ReinDog Parade RIP Good Dog
Me with the 2 MDivs
Mozart the wonder dog. RIP
OK, I've been here a while now and have had ups and downs on the way to my goal. Unfortunately I have been taking detours on the road to better health, but I am determined now to take time for me (rather than everyone and everything else!) and go the distance to the finish line. I never would have made it this far without SparkPeople, and I look forward to continuing on with the support of SP and all the friends I have made here.
Current goal: Have a healthy BMI by July 26, 2014 - an anniversary present to both DH and me.
Long-range goal: Consistent healthy lifestyle
Exercise every day - walking, treadmill, exercise bike, Leslie Sansone DVD's, Wii and XBox games
My Fitbit, where, at least for Lent, I am doing 10K+ steps daily.
Started Nutrisystem on March 2, 2015 needed a little structure to finish this weight loss off.
Drink LOTS of water
Happily-married mom of 4 great grown kids and 1 18-yr-old blind kitty.
No longer a professional volunteer, although I am a church organist looking for substitute jobs now and then. I have been looking forward to having more time to take care of myself for several years now, but my mom was ill and needed care, and then my husband, and then came my health issues. Hopefully that is all behind me now and I can concentrate on getting those last 15-20 pounds OFF!

Thanks for the goodie and the comments. I'm glad DD came home to see her dog. She'd been debating coming home since we got news of the dog's heart tumor and then when her cat died that was the event that made her decide to make the long drive. I'm glad she did, as now she won't have regrets if something happens to Audrey, the dog, before her next visit, which probably won't be until late fall.
Yes, it's hard having aging pets! Now, every cough from my two dogs with heart issues makes me worry. And when they are deep asleep I check to see if they are breathing!! Best case though would be if they would go in their sleep and make things easy for me!! It's watching them suffer and making hard decisions that really stresses us!
