HI-I.'m Fannie and have a wonderful husband of 12 years, a really great 17 yr old and a very handsome and amazing 19 year old son. My family would say however that I should have listed my real heart here first, Lolli-my 6yr old chihuahua and then add my other 6 year old chi (the 2 lb runt whom is my husband's baby) Bella, my guinea pigs whom I adore-Pippin and Goblin. Add my son's cat Luna and my daughter's rescued guinea pig, Gracie ( whom follows her around like a dog...) and that about sums up our home. Just at 300 lbs and sooo unhealthy for it. Beginning to be serious and we are taking it serious. The worst have been my fight with migraines for 6 years; whom my beloved Lolli has really rescued me from falling into a pit during these times and over the years. I thought this group would be perfect for us.

Happy to meet all.

Hi, my name is Paula and I have been a Spark Member for several years. And, after reducing the number of Teams I have joined, today, I decided to add this Team because it includes all pets, and I thought I could benefit from it and share some pet love.

Hi everyone! I am in my 30's from Michigan. I've lost over 100 lbs. before before the PTSD. My blood sugars forced me to wake up and try to save my own life again but i am still struggling a lot. I'm hoping that being on SP will help me stay motivated as it did in the past. Being on teams with supportive friendly people makes everything fun and a lot easier.

Hi, I'm Valerie and I lost 35 pounds with SP in 2013 but then gained it all back. So I'm going to try again. I didn't drink any alcohol today and I tracked all my food and stayed within my calorie range. I had 2 scrambled eggs and toast for breakfast and then an early dinner of baked chicken and fried rice. So today was really good for Day #1.

I have a sweetheart of 10 years, Johnny, a new puppy (Rat Terrier), a tiger striped cat, and a cockatiel. I try to post some pictures.

I'm an animal lover! Just got 2 guinea pigs a month ago and enjoying it very much to take care of them.
Cleaning their cage (120x60 cm) is a workout for me!

Hi to all. I am back on Sparks after an 8 month hiatus. My daughter Jessica (13bsggierra13) and I have diabetes and are finally back on a diet that will help both of us. Jessica is our meal planner. We have 5 kitty babies and a 150# great pyrenees, rottweiler, and mastiff mix. I have a goal to get people to realize that animals have personalities just like people. I want them to look at animals like people and not mistreat them.

Welcome Kate. Glad to have you. Our dog is spoiled rotten. Matter-of-fact we just bought a king sized bed so he would have more room in bed!!!!!! Actually, Boone the dog, hogs the bed and DH needed more room as Boone likes to hog his side of the bed. Hopefully the 16" a king sized bed will give us will be enough!!! LOL!!!!!

Hi, I'm Kate. I've fostered dogs in the past and now I have two of the most adorable dogs you've ever seen. (I mean I'm sure every pet mama feels that way, but I'm serious, mine are exceptionally cute!!) My husband and I got married 2 years ago. My kids are almost grown and we will never have babies together, so we have these two furbabies instead. Up until recently I was diligent about walking them. In the beginning it was a struggle just to walk around my cul-e-sac, but evenutally we were walking about 3 miles a day. Two weeks ago I moved into a house with a huge fenced back yard... so I've gotten lazy about our regular walks. It's easier to sit in a comfey chair on the porch and watch them play. Great for them, not so great for me. I'm thrilled to find a team with other pet lovers. Some of my "normal" friends don't seem to get it... to them a dog is "just-a-dog" emoticon Crazy right! Our dogs are an important part of our family. Thanks for having me, I'm delighted to be a part of this group!

Welcome DIALYN50. Your famiyl soudns great. I agreee, pet lovers have large sized hearts. Just look at my name. Yes, I have 8 cats. I just adopted two kittens a little over a week ago. I was down to 6 but couldn't stand it so two more came in. Of course I can't forget Boone the dog. We all have a great home and the love is unconditional!! Welcome to the team!!!

Hello, I'm Dianne from Southern California. I share my life with my Pomeranian/Terrier mix Bellaluna (I say she's my moon doggy but, when she was young, she was also a little lunatic), and my cat Larry (whose brothers' names were Moe and Curly). I've been through a bad patch in the last year with my breathing, so it's been difficult to get up the energy to exercise, but my Bella is a task master. We walk slowly (she's 11 and I'm 62 so we are almost the same age) but persistently nearly every morning (I don't know if I can count my oxygen tank as a "pet" but it gets walked at the same time). I don't think I would have gotten through the year without Bella and Larry and, oh yes, the Feral. The Feral is a wild cat who has been feeding from my outdoor buffet for about 14 years. Anyway, I'm glad to find other pet lovers on this side. I may be a little prejudiced but I think pet lovers tend to have large sized hearts. Take care all.

Hello, I am Joanne. My cat, Emerald and I both need to lose some weight. I need to lose 5 or 10 pounds which doesn't seem so bad. However, it seems like I have been trying to lose the same 5 or 10 pounds for the past 10 years! There is a history of diabetes in my family so I want to be careful. Also, I have some health problems that I want to work through and I think a healthy life style is the key. My cat, Emerald needs to lose about 3 pounds. She's not very motivated.
