Ooops, sorry to miss the obvious—and I know better!

The seal lynz mitted male out of Tiggie and Dakota: he loves me. He wants to come live with me. I can tell.

Great job on breeding gorgeous ragdolls! Good site, too. You certainly got it together!

Clyde is exquisite in the front photo!

...I am new, and just wanted some support on losing weight. I was successful once using the atkins diet, but relapsed all the way back. It was not the fault of the diet, just all out reckless eating habits by myself.

Well, introductions

Who am I? well that purely depends on the day, time and mood that I am in, been called many things some good and well some not so good (insert shocked look) The name that I post here is of course Crowbear, although I actually prefer "Bear" just cuz I have gotten used to that nickname. My real name is Matt. I am 34 and of course if I said "yes please" that would be construed as chavhanistic I would imagine so therefore I will add that I am male, although with the excersize and losing of weight that is happening it is throwing my hormones into high gear... but nuff said bout that (background noises of "chauvhanist" being said in whispers). I started LC in september of this year. I am divorced with a child who is in my custody and is turning 8 on Dec 25th. So I guess that kind of puts me in that "other" category (sees some knowing nods). I live in a town called Newberg it is about 25 miles south of Portland OR. Occupation... full time father, part time electronic technician, and all around daydreamer, and some dreams have come true, so no one can tell me that they don't. Already answered the question bout kids, I have a very loving and attention starved cat, and an annoying, but loving ferret. I am remaining on the induction part of the Atkins diet, it seems to be doing me the most amount of good, but would still love a visit from the whoosh fairy (hears something bout it taking years to get the weight on, must take a little while to take it off).

THE JUST FOR FUN PART

Steak done to a bloody rare (hears gagging sounds from the rear) hey, I have always said that you can just show the cow a flame and then bring it out....

Freshly baked sour dough bread (gives longing look toward San Francisco)

Pizza... got to have a pizza at least once a month... with the bread, I usually start off with the crust first.

I used to do 30 miles a day on my bike when I was going to school and it was an exhilarating experience, I want to be able to do that and be able to jog again.

I would love to be able to read books for a living, I love to read almost anything. have to add the anything just for the fact I have read some garbage that calls itself books, but knowledge even negative knowledge can be a good thing.

I would love to meet the Dalai Lamma.

I am currently reading whatever I can get my hands on, although I am writing my own novel.

Blade Runner is definately in my top 5 movies, along with Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence, The natural, Breakfast Club, and the Indianna Jones movies.

Anything else that I wish to share I will put in my journal

Hi! I’m Daisy (or Clair if you prefer!), I’m 30 & female I think that “Yes please" should count too!
* Started LC (Atkins) 15/10/01.
* Married, single, other: Other, I guess! I’ve been with my gorgeous boyfriend for nearly 3 years, but we don’t live together or anything!
* City, County /Hemisphere: I live in Sunderland, which is a city in the north east of England
* Occupation (# 1 MOM, # 1 secretary, # 1 boss, # 1 sofa surfer): all of these things, and a few more!
* Kids, pets, pests: Twin boys, age 11, who are mainly responsible for the above!
* Current Low Carb status (ie losing, maintenance, would kill for a visit from the whoosh fairy): Losing, after a brief stall. What’s the whoosh fairy? I think I saw her a few times, but I don’t know what she’s for!
* Favourite low carb food; currently chicken curry, but whatever the latest recipe is that I’ve tried.
* Favourite non-low carb food- Roast potatoes! And apples. And my apple and butterscotch pudding…mmm… apple and butterscotch pudding…!
* Food you can't live without on Low carb- sugar free jelly & cream.
* Favorite type of exercise- running & swimming.
* If you could be paid for the thing you most like to do what would it be?- reading, making lists, scooting around on my office chair, stapling, correcting spelling!
* Person you'd most like to meet currently living- Dermot O’Leary. He’s mine & he needs to be convinced of it hahhahahah! Seriously, ummmm, Madonna, I guess. BTW, nrussell- I met Sean Bean a couple of years ago! He does nothing for me though, and he was really dull, though to be fair, my football team HAD just beaten his 4-0!
* What are you currently reading- The Exorcist! Oh the shame! Usually I prefer Toni Morrison, Anne Tyler, Margaret Atwood, something like that. Honest! My favourite novels are Beloved by Toni Morrison, Lolita by Nabokov and Paul Auster’s New York Trilogy
* What's your favourite movie- So many! The Shop Around the Corner, It’s a Wonderful Life... I love old movies! I also saw Amelie recently, which I loved, but mainly I watch far too many horror movies than can be healthy for me!
* Just anything else you'd like to share. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger!
