    Please join the 50-100 lb weightloss club in congratulating our own Debbie (abnersmom) for reaching her goal weight of 150.
    For those of you who aren't familiar with her that's a 115 lb , all natural, gumption and go for it , non surgical, weightloss.
    We as a group are so proud of her and wish her the very best in striving for maintenance.

    I bet Lil Abner listens to his mom when she tells him to "Eat your vegetables."

    Wow! That's hardcore. The great Ben Hogan once said, "the only way to get really good (at anything) is you got to dig it out of the dirt." I think its safe to say, abnersmom, is a person of considerable substance. Well done and Happy Thanksgiving!
    abnersmom replied to brunosbud's response:
    Thanks for posting this Kim. You know already that I don't believe I would have done it without the ladies on our board.

    Thanks, Brunosbud! The only drawback for Lil Abner is that he can't keep up on our walks anymore (little dog and he's 8 years old now) I take him for about a mile of my walk and then put him back in the house to finish at a faster pace. He's one pampered pouch so don't feel sorry for him. Oh, and he loves green beans and apples. LOL!

    Happy Thanksgiving.

    Ha! "Abner" is your dog, huh?
    Well, Abner meet "Bruno", my 4 year old Welsh Corgi Pembroke walking mate. Debbie, do you at least get some privacy when you go to the bathroom?...I sure hope at least one us of does!
    Haylen_WebMD_Staff replied to brunosbud's response:
    LOL Bruno!
    abnersmom replied to brunosbud's response:
    Well, Brunosbud, Abner suffers from separation anxiety according to my vet. He used to take Prozac, but he is off of that now. So, no, I don't get privacy. He sits outside the shower and whines while I'm in there. He is an 8 year old Poodle and although he is as smart as they come, he can be a royal pain in many ways. Great company though!

    I love Corgis! They have great personalities. Give Bruno a belly rub for me.
