Oza has a way of looking at me letting me know I need to get moving toward my goal. She is one of the joys in my life.

Hobie is my other reason to take walks. She is also striving to become more fit and has gotten me motivated to do the same. She as been told by her doctor as I have by mine that we both need to get some of this weight off of us. I know we can do it together.

Brut is a walking buddy too. He loves to come on walks with my dogs and me. He has his own harness

    I was reading some older emails today and saw that you had joined our 50+ Members and Cholesterol Support Teams so I thought I would stop by, say hi, and welcome you to the teams...better late than not at all. You will receive lots of support and encouragement from everyone. Just post any prayer requests, questions, comments or suggestions you may have and someone will respond quickly.
    You have come to the right place. Take advantage of what Spark has to offer. I want to see you accomplish your goals. Stay focused and keep a positive attitude as this will be a great help to you in your daily life!!! Smile although sometimes that is the hardest, but it really helps!!! And, if nothing else, it makes people wonder what you're up to.
    Remember to just take one day at a time on this journey of a lifetime. This journey consists of many small steps, a few speed bumps and pot holes, and a lot of fun. I will be here for you and try to help you on this journey to your goals. YOU can do this!!!
    Commit yourself to constant self-improvement — the joy is truly in the journey! You are creating a body that is strong and balanced!
    Watch your portion control. Be sure to drink plenty of water (8 - 8oz glasses a day) and walk. Water and walking will help you on this journey of weight loss and lowering numbers. Start small if that is all you can do or have time to do and add to it as you are able. Even 5-10 minutes several times a day adds up to bigger numbers and will keep you moving. Invest in a good pedometer (about $10) and see how many steps you currently take each day. Before long you will be adding steps just to see how many you can do and how far you can go. WHAT A GREAT MOTIVATOR!!! YOU can do this!!!
    CONGRATULATIONS on your nine pound weight loss. What a great job you are doing! Keep it up! It's good to meet and have you with us.
    God bless you on your journey to a healthier you. Take each day as it comes and enjoy it to the fullest!!!
    God's blessings to you.
    Hugs,
    Helen

    "If you planted hope in a heart today in any hopeless heart,
    If someone's burden was lighter because you did your part,
    If you caused a laugh that chased a tear away,
    If tonight your name is mentioned when someone kneels to pray,
    Then your day was well spent."
