I'm 70 and need to lose about 40 lbs, but taking 10 at a time so I don't get so discouraged. I need to improve my motivation, and get up and move. I was on SP about 2 years ago, but quit coming here and gained the weight back, so I'm back

Hi there. Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting on the easy breakfast entry.

No, oat bran isn't the same as what we call oatmeal. Oatmeal is rolled oats, the flake of the grain after it's been mashed flat. Oat bran is simply the bran of the grain. It isn't a whole grain but ounce for ounce, it's higher in fiber than rolled oats so a smaller amount is needed to reap the fiber benefits.

Courage doesn't always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice
at the end of the day, saying,
"I will try again tomorrow."

hi! since you asked--I can't tell the chickies apart--at least not now emoticon
they are amber links, so they may develop pretty brown spots when they get older-- might make them easier to tell apart. I just name them because I like to.
last time I had what I thought was a brahma pullet and I named her flossie ann--she turned out to be a rooster. his name is frank and I hate him emoticon

Your Merlin will be MUCH bigger than mine was. Mine was a 35# smooth coated Border Collie. I imagine yours will hit at about 125# or so...?

I've always wanted a Pyr or a other big herd-riding dog for the livestock, but so far haven't gotten one. I did try llamas once, though.

I seems that so many on my teams do so well. I feel like I am alone in my struggle, but I see I'm not. We can do this I am sure. Just slow and sure!
Thanks for your encouragement.
