Weight loss update

I love being a guy! They lose weight so fast!

In the past week (or two?) of our Cardigan weight loss I've lost 9 pounds. I've been deer hunting every day..walking miles upon miles in layers of heavy clothes and carrying a gun! I've started running on the treadmill again (they do actually work and not just for hanging clothes!) and I've started in earnest the healthy eating...lots of whole grains, spinach, veggies, fruits, low fat milk, etc. I hope to lose 30-40 pounds.

I'm also on a weight loss kick with my friend Briony, and our mutual friends Sonja and Lisa. Briony is way ahead of me on this but I'll quickly catch up.

Rayna and I had done this was it last winter? I lost 30 pounds about but gained most of it back......so yea...just love my sweets.......

Rayna are you coming with me to the Cardigan National?! Let's start the weight loss again! WOHOOO!!

AND I've weaned myself nearly off of the Diet Dew! Can you believe it!?!

Congrats! It really ISN'T fair that guys lose weight so easily!! :)I need to get on a healthier eating program myself.

Definitely not fair that guys can lose so quickly, but congrats! I was doing really great last week until the dog show in Lincoln. Oops! 8am ring times are not good, and not eating much during the day, so by dinner time we were starving. I was naughty! I didn't gain but I didn't lose, so have to be extra good this week. Being sick right now doesn't help, either... I hate winter!

Good luck to you (even though it sounds like you are doing great!)

See you in January! :)

Hugs,
Sherilyn

Do I have to wean myself off of Diet Dew? What do I replace it with? Giving up my Dew could be very difficult since I got off of Pepsi when I was last on a diet. Besides, losing weight is a lot easier at your age. Just wait.........

Wow, nice job Garrett! It doesn't come off as easily when your old and female. Even if you're racing around the agility field, out tracking, etc.

I can't give up the Diet coke or my Starbucks. Good for you!

I discovered Hansen Diet Soda as a replacement for Diet Coke. It's flavorful and has no caffeine, artifical color or salt. The company uses Splenda. My favorites are Pomegranate and Kiwi-Strawbery. If you can find them, give them a try. They also have root beer, ginger ale, cola, and many more.

A breed I can't stay away from

its true I guess that I would be first known for the fine wooled Shetland Sheep that I have procured and traveled across the USA and UK to ...
