First of all I need to tell you I joined the 5% Winter Challenge again. It's a Race to Fascinating Places - 8 Weeks this Winter, if your interested in checking it out. You join a supportive team and have fun as you lose 5% of your weight, make new friends, and improve your health! I am on the Spirited Underdogs Team. It has already started this time, but it will run a spring one so be sure to keep checking.
I am on the Spirited Underdawg team and here is my promise

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.

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, 21, 9 and 7, 3, and a one 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!!

    That's so sweet that he brings you flowers when he feels like it! If I want flowers, I go buy them for myself - my husband never even thinks of it!

    Winn-Dixie was offering 40x the points if you bought Valentine's flowers, so I bought myself a dozen red roses! I use the points to get money off at the gas pump at Shell stations. I have enough points now to get 20 cents off per gallon every time I fill up going and coming from my mom's house in South Carolina. I'm leaving next Thursday morning.
