emoticon Hello everyone, My name is Fran. I am a 44 year old mother of 5, grandmother of 5. I have battled my weight (and lost) for the better part of 24 years, I also smoked for the last 27.

I decided this year that was going to change and bought a weight system and treadmill with our income tax return. It was very disheartening to get on the treadmill and after a few seconds I was huffing and puffing. I don't think I even made it a minute before I got down.

I got to the point I couldn't catch my breath even when sitting. I was sleeping on the couch, because I was up and down all night going to the restroom, and I couldn't breath laying down.

I finally decided to go to the doctor (stubborn me, I hate going to the doc) and we discovered that I now have Congestive Heart Failure (CHF). She sent directly to the hospital, where I spent the next 4 days flushing fluids. I lost over 20 lbs in water weight.

That was almost 1 month ago. My last cigarette was on April 4, 2013 (the day I went to the hospital). My sister sent me the spark page link and nudged me into joining. And here I am.
