Since I'm fairly new to this board, I'll tell you all a little about myself.... I'm married and have 11 furkids. (No human ones.) Dh and myself celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary just yesterday. (Sept. 1) My hobbies include gardening, painting ceramics, feeding wildbirds, and rescuing dogs and cats. I'm also a strong animal advocate. I'm overweight and having a struggle to lose some of it. I'm older, so that makes it a little bit difficult to lose, too. Admittedly, I was a junk foodaholic, but I try to eat healthier now. I know I'm never going to lose all my excess weight and that I'll never look as I did when I was young.
There you have it and I'm looking forward to welcoming lots and lots of people here!
Hey Geri! I'm so glad your the CL of this board as well!! Congrats on your anniversary! I too love animals, we have one adorable cat at home.
Hi, I'm hopeful from the pain issues board! I'm a size 12 due to my chronic hip pain and other prior knee pain (too many years spent on the coach, lol!). I've been trying to lose weight for a few years now. I used to be a size 4/6 before my pain started in my early 20s. But you know what, I'm average. I don't like what the scale tells me, on top of being short (almost 5"3"): every extra pound shows on me. But I'm tired of beating myself up for it! Life's too short! I eat healthy most of the time, but I do have my vices and well; I guess I don't burn enough calories in a day.
I'm getting ready to get new clothes for the fall. I haven't shopped in so long! I am giving away the clothes that I have been hiding in, I now want to buy dresses and skirts! :)
