The best exercises for weight reduction are ones that use the entire body. This includes the large muscle groups in the legs and hips. Endurance exercises like walking, jogging and bike riding are especially good in this regard. Start modestly and build up your endurance.
When you use your entire body large numbers of calories are burned and your metabolism is increased significantly. You get leaner. You become a fat burning machine. Doesn’t that sound good?
To get the most out of the exercise try and work up to over half an hour each session. The more time you spend being active the more likely the body will turn to fat as its source of energy. If you exercise only for a few minutes the body tends to rely on glucose for its energy needs.

This past Friday, March 3rd, we had to make the decision to put Jeremiah to sleep.
That morning he vomited blood several times. We rushed him to the Vet. They ran a few more test (different from the ones in January when he was hospitalized). We were told that he had Invasive Colon Cancer and that he would only get worse. They said that they could try giving him pain medication but that they couldn’t guarantee how well it would work. There was nothing that they could do for the cancer. They said that this type of cancer was very aggressive which is why he had been so sick the past few months and losing weight.
We had been in the process of changing his dry food which we thought would help the Irritable Bowel Disease (he and his brother Joshua were diagnosed with IBD when they were kittens). Apparently it was not just the IBD that was causing all of the problems.
We wrongly thought that since there were a few days that he played for a few minutes at a time and was again laying upside down on his back that he was doing better. Of course over the past few month’s we could see that most of the time he was not feeling good.
It’s definitely been a rough few day’s. We certainly didn’t think that we would be taking him to the Vet for the last time.
The house is very quite now. No meowing. No purring. Jeremiah used to lick my cheek each morning to wake me up to feed him. He would meow from the bathroom when he wanted the water faucet turned on. When I washed my hair under the bathtub faucet he would jump in the tub to play in the water. If I was on the computer and he wanted attention he would sit right in front of it. He also seemed to like to watch many of our furry Flickr friends on video.
Since I am unable to work we were together 24 hours a day. When his brother Joshua passed away 16 months ago he took over Joshua’s role as being my "guardian". I feel pretty lost right now without him. It’s really unbearable to look around and not see him…. or to see that big fluffy tail of his enter the room like it had an entity of it’s own. He is missed more than we can say.
Thank you all so much for praying for him in the past when I asked for prayers. I do appreciate it more than you know. And thank you for taking the time to look at, fav and comment on his pictures. All of "our" kitties are very special and I know that we all enjoy sharing little pieces of their lives. Thank you for letting me do that with you.
