My name is Keith and I am trying to improve my eating habits. I exercise regularly (every day), but I had not been able to consistently lose weight due to my poor eating.

I have now been on SP for 2000 days in a row! I have been up and down over that time, and I still have to work very hard to stay on my eating plan, but I am still so much better off than I was back in 2009!

It looks like you are doing fantastic!Good for you. You can imagine how I am feeling. My hubby, who is 62, is training for a 26.2 marathon may 9th. He has lost 25 + lbs & was taken off his meds. Just wondering, how old are you?

I know you answered my comment in Nov but I have not been on spark since Now 14th as that was the day my husband went into the hospital for an infection somewhere in his body (never found out where) but as a high risk patient they hospitalized him, glad they did as he coded twice on the third night. He had less than 1/2 of 1% chance of survival but he did and without cognitive damage. It was an amazing event, the ICU dr said he had never seen a miracle in ICU, but he just did. However, the coding and resulting CPR and heart injections did damage his heart and he is now living with a 21% ejection fraction. I will always be grateful to you as you were the one years ago that told me to take him in something wasn't right so I did and discovered he was in congested heart failure. Now we are taking it day by day, he's alive and walking around and for that I will always be grateful.
So glad you and your wife are okay as well.

Wow! A daily workout everyday for years. Losing 60 pounds and maintaining it. The one thing we have in common--you're "a senior"--like me. You both motivate and inspire me. Next year at this time I hope I have daily exercise and weight loss in commone with you as well. Thank you for sharing your journey.

Hi! Your story is quite inspirational. Thank you for sharing it with SparkPeople members.

I noticed the picture of Frodo on your page and wondered, is he a Bichon?

We had a little Bichon girl for about 11 years until a little over a year ago when she had complications from a surgery for bladder stones and didn't survive. She was the best dog ever, and I still miss her terribly. I have thought about getting another Bichon, but almost feel it would be disloyal to her. Weird thinking, I know.

I admire and am a bit jealous that you and your wife have 6 rescues. Now is not a good time financially or from a family-need perspective for me to take on several dogs, but I will as soon as circumstances allow.

Again, thanks for the inspiration. Enjoy those fur babies!
