Welcome to the team! I agree with MaryAlice -- we do like to chat. I love my furry kids -- always told people there was a reason I had more cats (and now dogs) than kids! Like you, I have six cats and six dogs. Only difference is all my cats are indoors along with one dog. My other five dogs are a sled dog family that we rescued. Though they are a lot of work, I wouldn't trade them in for the world. We also have a couple of stray cats that we care for, along with wild birds.

I, too, have a portion problem. I was big on meat and veggies were an afterthought. Most of my fruit came in a can that said "in heavy syrup" and I always had to have the syrup. But luckily, my daughters are fruit and veggie eaters (they love to make salads), and that's helping me. And so is Spark People!

Hope to hear more from you!

emoticon We love to chat and support each other. Come over to the chat thread we are a tektite bunch. I had a problem with portion size. I made sure to measure everything and check packages to see what a portion size was. It didn't take very long at all till I only wanted a small amount, sometimes, not even a full portion. Now when we eat out, I have to ask for a to go box with my meal and I often think things are too sweet or salty.

I have restarted myself in Spark and would enjoy having a buddy that shares the love of cats and wants to lose weight with me as we share other topics. I am 66 and want to lose 50 pounds. I have set a goal of 7pounds monthly and will reach my goal for my birthday July.25. I am married and my daughter Julie, 37, lives next t door. She's single now and plans to have the sleeve surgery in April. Portions are my down fall. I need real accountability to someone and I can do the same for them. I have 5 cats. Only one lives totally inside. The others come and go. I also have 6 small dogs who reside outside. Ii take turns bringing one in at a time and giving them extra loving. I have two tortoise shells that look exactly alike. They love playing with the dogs. I will say MEOW for now!

No more excuses! Nothing changes until I do! What we do everyday matters more than what we do once in a while!
