My story like many is one of seesaw ,dieting..oh yeah..I have tried too many of them. Exercising till my body said NO more! then unable to do anything for days..silly me!
Took way too long to figure out that, healthy Real Food, portion control and reasonable exercise lead to the road to success.
Everyone has to find their own path, usually with multiple trials and errors along the way. Just remember to Never Give Up!!


I do solemnly pledge:
that I will do my best to eat healthy and within my calorie range,
that I will exercise to the best of my ability,
that I will watch my portions and avoid mindless eating,
that I will avoid or limit unhealthy foods,
that I will try to get enough sleep,
that I will stretch myself out of my comfort zone,
that I will always try to make healthy choices even when stressed,
that if I slip, I will get back on track with the very next opportunity,
that I will keep a CAN DO attitude, or ask for Help,
and that I will support my fellow pack mates

Because I am an UnderDawg
And every UnderDawg has the heart of a hero.

    Katie, I would have been one of those folks in New Orleans that stayed behind with their pets. So I totally understand you could not leave Molly alone!

    The Challenge is going ok. Still trying to recoup losses from before the holidays, but I'm sneaking up on it. I've got a shoulder issue that may or may not be frozen shoulder, but I've been cleared to keep up with exercise so I get to the pool pretty regularly. I'm also in the throes of doing some work on my family room. Had leaking in there and now that I've got the outside sealed up, planning on sealing the concrete floor this weekend. Been moving furniture, etc so that constitutes a workout, right?

    Dawgs are the best! emoticon
