I had realized for quite a while, that I really needed to get serious about losing some weight. I didn't necessarily get short of breath when doing things, but my heartrate would rise quickly, even with just the work of vacuuming or some other daily activity. I didn't like it, and I knew it wasn't a good thing. When I came across the SparkPeople site, I found the incentive and motivation I needed to start this journey.
I've had some health scares this past year....a routine mammogram led to early detection of breast cancer. Having had surgery, I will be starting radiation treatments within the next few weeks. I am grateful for early detection, and that I won't be requiring chemo. I've already lost 10 lbs., and am hoping I won't be set back by any side effects from the treatment. Age-wise, I'm heading towards 50, and I want to be energetic, living life to the fullest. Working in the hospital, I come across some very "old" 50-year-olds, and some very "young" 90-year-olds. I want to be that vibrant 90-year-old, and I believe it starts now....with a healthy lifestyle and an enthusiasm and zest for life!

    I had a blast filming the walking DVD with Leslie Sansone- thanks for asking! She was super sweet and it was an amazing experience- it was so surreal- I couldn't believe I was really there! How is everything going with you? I hope all is well.
