I was inspired by Leslie Sansone to get fit. I was surfing through the internet and on a health site that I used to work for and they had a free video of Leslie. I thought, hmm, ok, I will try this. I liked it. I did it again the next day and the next. After a week, I decided it was time to purchase my own DVD. Then I was hooked. That was six months ago now. I've been wanting to lose weight for awhile, and now because of Leslie, I'm actually DOING something about it.

I've always eaten healthy (I'm a vegan), but with all the working out, I realized how sporadic my meals were--so while the meals themselves were good for me--my habits of when I ate were not. So that had to change. I'd like to think I am on the right track. Well, hey, the jeans are finally fitting looser, so that's something right?

I'm also the proud mama of four lovely kitties (ok, three adorable social cats and one who is painfully shy and hides under the bed and never comes out except to eat, but only if no humans are around), three doggies, and two aquariums. My fur babies mean the world to me.

    I have one kitty similar to your shy one, I call Boe. She and her 4 kittens came in to live with me, and I watched them grow up, kept 2 and Boe, she couldn't be with anyone else anyway, she barely tolerates me and her 2 babies I kept, 2 boys Tigger and Meimo I guess she was feral for too long, but I keep trying. She comes for treats now, but still is aloof she is a pretty all grey with a tuff of white on her chest. It saddens me that I cannot get her to trust me. A trip to the Vet for her spay, didn't help either! lol

    Hi G, yes I have offered for him to enroll in karate but he doesn't want to. I think it would be great for him. He has such a huge generous heart. His passion is his motorcycle, he can't wait to ride it again this summer. Today I did tell him about how I was picked on growing up in chicago. It stunk. I always thought I had told him about it but I guess I didn't. I was picked on from 1st grade through 3rd grade. My mom says I didn't grow from the time I was in kindergarden through 3rd grade. She says I had soooo many dresses (ick!) cuz I didn't grow in all that time. I did touch base with the teacher "again" yesterday and it seems he took me more serious this time cuz he took Nicholas aside today and let him know everything would be okay and when Nicholas got off school today he was really happy. Woo hoo! BB&BH&L P.S. Thank you for your amazing card, it meant a lot to get it.
