My Goals:
I have pretty much reached my goals of losing weight (90 pounds) and getting off my DM meds so now I have to keep working hard to stay that way. Feeling as good as I do, I now wonder why I didn't do this years ago. But then I wouldn't have met all the wonderful people here on SP.

My Program:
I try to be consistent with my diet and exercise to maintain my weight and keep my BSs under a tight control.

Personal Information:
I live outside Philadelphia PA near the Delaware state line (tax free shopping!) I work as a legal nurse consultant and in my spare time I like to read, crochet, walk and love spending time with my husband, children and friends. I have three grown children, Ashley 28 married and a dentist, Hayley 24 in grad school for an MFA and Alex 21 who lives with hubby and me and works is an autobody repairer. We have two rescue dogs, Indy and Menlo.

Other Information:
My favorite poem is "The Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost. My philosophy of life is the Golden Rule (Treat others as you would wish to be treated) and I try everyday to live by it. I love life and am very happy!!

Oooh when are you going to SF? So jealous!

I sure did give those kitties some pets from you. I did a lot of loving on kitties yesterday, especially little Nairobi. She wanted all my attention.

I do agree with you about never being enough attention for kitties and doggies. I'd like to volunteer with doggies too, but to my knowledge there are no no-kill shelters here for dogs, and I just couldn't deal with dogs being euthanized so often. I'm not tough enough.

Hope you're having a great Tuesday!

PAT when we went there. we rode the BART. BAY AREA RAPID TRANSIT.
There are always the rides down to pier 49 on the tram cars. Your convention hotel might have a shuttle bus call ahead and ask them the proximity to the places you would like to see.
Check it out on the internet if you have not yet looked in to it. Fred and I walked mostly down hill and rode up hill but it is a chore on the uphill.
I always call guest services and ask them questions about what the hotel has to offer. If you do it now from home you will be able to find out a few things. Triple A Books help if you are a member. Research from home will be easier and take a few notes. We did find pier 49 was interesting. DH has a golden Eagle pass so we got in for free. That pass has paid for itself over again. AAA also has some clout if you check it out on line. HUGS Pat in Maine.
ENJOY every minute of it. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi Pat (PA) I imagine you had a really nice Easter, did you have family home?
My day went well despite the foolish knee. DH tried to pick something on the floor and his back is hurting. He has had a rice bag in his back most of the day. The Nevada family grilled salmon and gave us a delightful Easter meal. They bought me hand made sugar free chocolates. It has artificial sweetener in it. I decided to ask their permission to return it and see if they have the same box with sugar in. That way I can eat one or two over time but hopefully they and DH-my chocoholic will enjoy them.
HUGS and much love Pat (ME). Thanks for being such a good friend. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
