Who needs Dieting or Boflex

I have lost nine pounds since bringing an active puppy who doesn't except excuses like "I'm too tired, cold or busy to walk, play or exercise today." This might be the kick in the pants I needed. I was told I was pre diabetic, I have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and was up to 224 pounds. I am 5 foot seven inches.

My left lung is only 75 percent active because I was born with partially paralyzed diaphragm muscles on that side. The doctors had been warning me to loose weight to take the extra exertion of that lung, or I might be putting myself at risk for not being able to physically function at all, because I simply wouldn't be able to get enough oxygen. Maybe Marnie came into my life now for a reason.

I knew in my head the doctors were right I have always been just simply too depressed to care.

But I have always believed I had a responsibility to my pets to give them the care they need so I am getting out there everyday with her.

Maxie and I would walk everyday too but as she got older everything was at a much slower pace and she'd tire pretty easily.

I can't wait for the doctor to see. I don't think he thought it would happen.

So I owe a debt to this puppy.
