Hi - My name is Loretta and I live in the Westbrook area of Maine with my cat - Tiger male). Anissa passed away last year and Patches passed away two years ago. They were sister and brother. It's just Tiger and me now. After 18 yrs in the South Portland, ME area, I moved to Westbrook, Me with my last surviving cat (Anissa) to a retirement village with a lot of ammenities. Surprisingly, I got Tiger from a shelter shortly after Anissa passed away. I didnt plan on getting another cat so soon after Anissa passed away, but I am glad now I have him. He keeps me going getting into everything. I love the little guy. He makes me happy.

Ive been with SP for quite awhile now. Weight loss is never easy. Ive been battling weight problems since I was a child. In my adult years, I got high blood pressure problems at about the age of 26. At the age of 60 , I got hyperactive thyroid problems, now I have hypothyroid problems. Now I am having circulatory problems starting with edema plus some other symptoms. Ive been told losing weight and exercising more will help this problem. The only exercise I can do now is walk and light housework . I cannot do anything heavy, because of all the pain in my legs. Even walking is difficult. I am also low on Vitamin D. Ive had some successes in the past. I am not giving up. I feel I have one last success in my future. I need to lose 97 pounds. I will make this happen.
