June of 2006 I was bedridden and my doctor gave me a month to live and told me to get my affairs in order and did not think he would see me again. He made an appointment for me for July and he almost passed out when he saw me walk into his office without assistance. I made up my mind that I was not ready to let go of life just yet so I started to take care of myself and eat properly and exercise and get well. I gave up smoking after a 30 year two pack a day habit and stopped abusing alcohol after twenty years . I made up my mind to get healthy so I could see my grand children grow up and prosper.
I have made great improvments in my health and in my life. I enjoy each day and live each day to the max.
I am very healthy now and just finished this years (June2013) physical and lab tests, every test came back normal and the Doctor said I was a picture of health. I am at my goal weight, the Doctor was very happy with my progress.
I have been smoke free since March 20, 2005, I have been sober since June 8, 2006. I love my new life.
I have made many friends here on the Spark site and I enjoy each and everyone I meet, I never in my wildest dreams thought I could get this far in such a short time. I am very thankful for everyones support in my efforts to improve my health and my life.
Thank you to all my friends now and in the future and a special thank you to SparkPeople.com for making it possible for people to live a healthy lifestyle.

Thanks for dropping by my blog Sandy. I walk an average of 5 miles a day at work. As well as a half mile round trip to the bus stop in the morning. I can't wait for it to be light out when I take my daughter to the bus stop as the dog and I will continue around the block. I don't do it in the dark. Too many cars on the roads by my house. A Spark Group get together would be wonderful.

My goodness I sure wish I was home to enjoy all of that! I was able to go to the Hawks game when they came to Philly and that was just amazing to see. I really hope that we win this next one so that we will be in the super bowl again. I want to have another party. LOL
