    Hang in there, David. You are an inspiration. I really admire the way you are working so hard to deal with difficult problems. I'm glad you're not isolating and that you have found a support group that helps. I have a relative who is a recovering alcoholic, and he says AA has saved his life.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. I know how hard it is to lose a beloved pet.

    Maybe he thought the mouse was a tiny little dog.

    I have two pit bulls. I know what a lot of people think about the breed, but these two dogs are the sweetest and friendliest I've ever known. I'll never forget the first time we took the male to the vet. A vet tech was kneeling in front of him sticking a needle into his front leg to get blood for a heart worm test, and he was sitting there licking her face.

    Rough day today

    I'm so sorry about your dog. It's little wonder you feel touchy and sensitive, and that you've been crying. I've loved a number of dogs over my lifetime, and it's always so very hard to lose one.

    Lose pounds by xmas eve

    Reminds me of a story about Jean Nidetch, the founder of Weight Watchers. Before she started Weight Watchers she had gone to another weight loss group where they had weekly weigh ins. The leader was giving her a hard time about having not lost weight. She said, "I'm premenstrual." The leader said, "Mrs. Nidetch, this is the fourth week in a row you've been premenstrual."

    Making the best of a bad situation

    You're an inspiration. Thank you for posting this. I'll try to remember this when I hit my next set back.
  13. Absolutely managing to get out of bed counts. We have to celebrate the small victories.

    werise55 is right. We need to focus on healthy instead of scale numbers and we need to concentrate on making gradual changes that we can stick with long-term.
