Fresh Start

A little bit about myself:

I live in NJ with my husband John and our Chihuahua/Maltese mix of a dog. We have a married daughter, Tracey, Son In Law John and Grandson Nick who will be 13 in September 2011.

My weight problem began when I quit smoking. I can no longer use this as an excuse. It's time to take responsibility for my health by eating sensibly and exercising faithfully. I KNOW SparkPeople can provide the motivation and inspiration to help me accomplish these ...

I enjoy SparkPeople tremendously and cherish the companionship of the wonderful people I've met online through the site. Everything is here that we need to help us reach our goals and attain better health.

I wish all of you a wonderful journey to good health with happiness along the way.

Hello Starr,

It seems that you're going through more than any one person should have to bear. I'm so sorry that your husband is at the end stage of his life. I know he's been suffering for a very long time.

On top of all this, how heartbreaking that you lost your beloved pets. I understand how that feels after losing our two Chihuahuas, months apart in 2011.

Take good care of yourself. Sending good wishes and prayers to you.

emoticon and love,
Marilyn

Hello Marilyn,

How are you doing my sweet friend?

I am not doing well at this point in my life. My DH is in the final stages of ALS (Lou Gherigs disease) right now. He's been at home on hospics care for the past 5 weeks. Two months before that he was in the hospital in ICU. The doctor is giving him less then a month to live.

In December we lost our Corgi, Bullet, to cancer. We'd had him for 15 years, and believe that he was 2 when we got him. Aside from me, Bullet was DH's best friend. Bullet followed DH around all over the house behind DH's power chair.

Back in May, I lost my Rat Terrier (my profile pic), Teeny. She had kidney problems and had just turned 9 years old. I feel cheated out of my babies life, as Ratties average life span is 15 to 18 years. But we gave her a wonder & very much loved life.

I hope that you and your family and all your fur-babies are all doing very well and are happy.

Love & hugs,
~~Starr~~

Thanks Marilyn, l really enjoyed it.
The weather's not been too bad again today, I've had Joseph all day while Leah took the older ones to see a film and have a McDonald's with their friends...had a good long walk with the pram, really enjoyed that too!

Hi Marilyn,
I keep meaning to email you but things have been a bit different what with one thing and another. On top of the bronchitis and hospital visits I now begin light therapy again tomorrow, three times a week for the next three months or so. It's a bit of a drive, around an hour but it'll be worth it.

I attended my Slimmers World class this morning and I've lost another 9 and a half pounds, that's 4 stones exactly as I put a bit back on over Christmas so I'm really pleased and in the right frame of mind for losing just now.

Hope everything's going well with you emoticon
