You have a lot of team leaders! How lucky you are! I was a team leader of 1200 calorie and struggled with that till finally someone took it over and she is doing a fine job and it now has about 75 members. But im really excited to see so many team leaders here. That is wonderful. Blessings to you all. AMy

Hello my name is Amy. I have been in sparkpeople off and on. I have had asthma since I was a baby. I lived in Japan for 15 years where I suffered a lot from asthma but when I came back here I was fine. Two years ago I developed the flu from that h1m1 and it turned into pneumonia. Ever since then my breathing capacity has gotten worse and worse. I was just told by my doctors that my lung capacity is very narrow and it possibly is not asthma. I have to take medicine 4x a day without exercise..just walking from one end of the room to the other I am out of breath. I see a lung specialist in 2 weeks so I guess I will hear the results of all the tests..I need to go back to putting down my food in the food diary since I have gained 40 pounds since my mother died last year and start there. I dont know if this group is able to help me but Im here anyways.

Hi Serena! I've only had asthma a couple years and in the hospital once. (thank God!) My mom had it, my sister has it, so I guess I was destined! I use my inhaler before I exercise and it helps me get through the workout. Welcome to the team!
