Hello, My name is Toni. I love horses and I used to be 120 pounds or so and a very active person. Go Go Go That was me. Then I injured my back at work in Feb. of 2008. I have had 2 surgeries and have been pretty much down for the better part of 2 years while recovering. Since my injury I gained about 67 pounds from not being able to be active like I used to be. The doctor says that I can't even ride my horse ever again. I have pain with everything that I do and I have to force myself to get up and do things. Well, at least I haven't gained any weight in the past 4 months so now It's time to lose the weight that I gained so I can feel better about myself again.

    Hey there, how are you doing?

    I'm doing OK. I'm sitting here just taking it easy for now and contemplating the future. The past year has been quite a challenge, but I think I have accomplished a lot, and I am grateful for the success that I have had. I just wanted to write to thank you for all of your good wishes and thoughts over the past year, I couldn't have come as far as I did without them.

    Here's wishes for all the best of health, happiness and prosperity for you and those who mean the most to you during this Holiday Season and may the New Year bring you all that you desire and more.

    All the best,

    Big Dave and Family
    We're In It For The Finish, are you?
