I share my home and life with 4-footed friends - 2 cats (Starkist & Shadowspawn), & 4 dogs. My little dogs are smallest dogs I''ve ever had - Samurai the Papillon, and Spartacus the rescued chihuahua (also known as "the little weasel) & their bratty little sister, Sharona - I think she’s a chihuahua/ Boston Terrier mix. She may be younger, but she’s bigger than the boys! Just added to the mini-pack at the end of January 2018 - a rescued teacup Chihuahua, Shiloh. She has a heart murmur, so the only way she can go on the walks is if I carry her.

I got the lap-band surgery in Nov 06. So far, I''ve lost over 120 pounds (3/9/10). Recently changed my end goal to even less. (155). Sigh ... about 25 pounds have found their way back.

I was an RN working 12 hour night-shifts - retired 30 November 2017 after 40 years in Federal service (including my 10 years as an Army Nurse). Still having trouble sleeping at night, and not napping in the daytime.

Fitness Minutes: 366,594

My Goals:
Mini goal - I'm gonna bust thru 200 by the end of July!! DID IT!!! 7/13/09

Finally made 2 separate week weigh-ins of less than 175 - yeah! 3/14/13

Get in shape so my knees don't keep stressing.


My Program:
Walking my little dogs every day. Throwing in strength exercises while I wait for the sniff breaks for them.



Personal Information:
Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.
Groucho Marx

If man could be crossed with the cat, it would improve man but deteriorate the cat.
Mark Twain

I always like a dog so long as he isn't spelled backward.
G.K. Chesterton



Other Information:
I'm a reader. Can't go to the bathroom without book in my hand (even if I don't open it in the little room). Love my cats and dogs.

When you don't think the program will work, remember the motto: Try it our way for at least 6 weeks and if you are not satisfied we will gladly refund your misery

    . . . say “I love you” to all the people in your life whom you care deeply about and do it often. You might assume . . . people know you love them, but this is much different than speaking the words. Andrew Schrage

    *Did I miss putting them in? Yikes!*

    It makes you think they're DELIBERATELY messing with your head huh? emoticon

    At the end of last night all that was left over were the packing odds and ends; everything was accounted for and organized for easy access. Trouble is DH may well forget what pile of wood to investigate first LOL............luckily I've made a tally emoticon

    Every improvement we've ever made to the properties we've owned or rented out we've done ALL the work ourselves.
    With one exception; when we were renovating my mum's property, prior to selling after she died, all the walls needed re-plastering from floor to ceiling so we called in a pro- if felt as smooth as glass when he'd finished.
