My name is Connie and I live in Wisconsin I quit smoking Sept 22, 2004 after fighting lung cancer and winning the battle. I joined and those amazing people and their support works wonders If you are thinking about quitting, give them a try.

I have yo yo dieted for most of my adult life and really need to find a way that works. I hate water and exercise and don't do either one with consistency, I really need some motivation. My short term goal is to drink more water right now I am trying for 4 glasses a day and working up.

Thanks CigBGone (Bob) for letting me know about this site.

The pictures I chose are of my 10 year old Yorkie just because he is such a little love and my new Nanday Conure Parrot Jesse. He is 4 years old so he is already trained to cuddle and not bite to hard he still hurts when he gets carried away. The other picture is me sorry if I scared anyone LOL

Have a great day everyone.

Honestly writing down what I eat even if I "cheat" Because I only cheat myself when I don't.

Personal Information:
My name is Connie

I live in Wisconsin

I have been married to the same wonderful man for 35 years (2006). Sometime he sabotages my efforts.

Looking forward to learning a new life style and getting to know others on this site.

Other Information:
I love to read, crochet, and play with the grand kids when I get a chance. I also like walking but not by myself and right now I don't have a walking partner. My dog is to old to walk far any more and I don't really trust my parrot to stay on my shoulder or for a hawk not to think he is lunch.

Update on 6/2/14
New dog he has lots of energy and loves to walk.
