I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your beloved kitty. I lost mine last year after 21 years and I know it is never easy. Sending you hugs during this time.

Ultimate goal weight: 130
05/11: 195.5 (not much change in my appearance so far, though I might seem to be, uh, deflating)
05/21 goal: 193.0
05/12 - 195.0 (drizzly day; pulled 6 ticks off me yesterday, a new personal best/worst)
05/13 - 195.0 (weather looks promising; another hike through Tickland is scheduled for me and the dogs)
05/14 - 194.5 (another long hike scheduled for early afternoon; may try to take all 4 dogs, with 2 on long leads (give me patience); today I will remember my bug jacket, because the blackflies, though not yet biting, are flying around my face and it's annoying)
05/15 - 194.0 (sunny AND the weekend! More walking and gardening in my plans; also I don't recommend taking 4 dogs on a walk with 2 on long leads - DON'T DO IT - one was really ticked off and they kept getting tangled up; as well I forgot my bug jacket and had no free hands to swat flies away)
05/16 - 193.5 (hoping it'll clear up later; a long exploratory hike in the plans today; wish I knew more about eating wild plants; tried some goutweed (grown wild at an old collapsed house site) and it was nasty though it is supposed to be edible. Maybe it needs to be cooked.)
05/17 - 193.5 (the long hike was brilliant, a mostly grassy path winding through mixed forest; another 6 ticks on me, but I refuse to give up hiking the woods just because the tick population has exploded this year; just 2 months ago, a brisk 2-h hike would have killed me and I would have had to keep stopping to rest but now I can just keep on going so I know I'm making progress with my fitness. Of course it probably helps that I have 30 less pounds to haul around with me!)
05/18 - 193.5 (yard got checked out by a black bear last night, 6 and 1/2 hours ago, and the chihuahuas are STILL barking about it; probably will not get a woods walk in today because I have to go out)
05/19 - 193 FINALLY (a bit drizzly today but better than yesterday's thunderstorms; plan to go out on a long walk again. Oh, and 193 pounds is my official one-third-done day! Whoohoo! "Only" 13 pounds of obesity to go before I am "only" overweight! I am more determined than ever and believe that I am starting to see a difference in my appearance at last.)
05/20 - 193 again (took a long walk to the end of a woods trail and it ended in a clearing, much to my disappointment, not much further along down the road; debating whether or not to start the C25k now or wait until I weigh 180, which was my original plan)
