I have joined the Spring 5% Challenge which is 8 weeks of inspiration towards the weight loss journey. It is a Race to Fascinating Places - Join a supportive team and let's have fun as we lose 5% of our weight, make new friends and improve our health! It starts January 9th.
Look up the team by it's name which is.... 2021 5% Summer Challenge or cut and paste this

I live in Washington State, Port Angeles to be exact. It's at the start of the Straits of Juan de Fuca, and directly across the water from Victoria Canada. Beautiful place.

I have struggled with weight my whole life. More than once I''ve had to lose 30 pounds. It just kinda creeps up on ya uh?

My family includes my husband, myself and a Pomchi.

I have 3 daughters, as of Feb 2018 they all live on this side of the Puget Sound too. I have 6 grandchildren, ages 26, 22,10 and 8, 5, and a 2 year old. Only the oldest is a boy, all the rest are girls!

My biggest wish was to live closer to my children and grandchildren again. We are the ones that moved away for 15 years. My wish came true, but it was hard won. On Oct 18, 2013 we had a house fire in our home in Lake Havasu, AZ. It took nine months of misery, RENTALS moves, and insurance adjustments but we moved into OUR home in Port Angeles, WA 7-18-2014. Nine months to the day of the fire.

Here''s to us ALL "positively" losing to our goal weight and then keeping our weight off!!

    Both of those names are GREAT!! Why not Romeo of Tazzamia? Than you can call him either Romeo or Tazz or TazzyRom emoticon emoticon

    Izzy is usually called "It Bit" It WAS "Itty Bitty Kitty" because she's smaller than the average house cat. Her paws are so short that jumping isn't easy for her, it's so strange when she actually gets running fast enough to really JUMP!!! LOL Just a bit ago she was running around as FAST as your sweet kitten does!! Izzy stops after a short bit, but for a kitty in congestive heart failure she does AMAZING!!! Awwww kittens are PRICELESS!! LOL Izzy did the ATTACK MODE during that run around, I WAS LAUGHING!! But when Kittens do it,, they all side ways, and often a JUMP UP and BACK in the air!! SO FUNNY!! Awww enjoy the little cutie!!

    And does Kitty have a name???

    I have a name, my Mom was pretty quick with mine. BUT she was NOT with my brother born before me. LOL SHe just could NOT GIVE HIM A NAME!! In all fairness to Mom, it makes sense in a heart breaking way. She had a son before him who was also born very small and Donald died. So when Allan was born ,,,she could not bare to name him just to also lose him. Like my Dad Allan had red hair. SO my Grammy named him Allan Eugene. Well Allan not only lived, but turned to be extremely smart (A total amusement for the adults who just LOVED to hear him chatter, and for the rest of us kids, FREE HOMEWORK help or we'd beat him up!! LOLOLOL) He was such a NERD when that was NOT a good thing to be. He had told me how scared he was to start HS. I was street smart so advised him "Allan find out at once who the TOP Jocks are, offer to their homework in return for protection." He was HORRIFIED I'd suggest that, but he did it!! LOL It worked out good for him, and the JOCKS would of just made someone else do it for them. So it was a very workable solution. I was as aid the baby after Allan also born very small. As we can see I DID live. Two more would be born one of them sickly, but also survived. Well we think he's alive, its the druggie.
