I am from a very rural area in Northern Missouri. I have some very serious health problems, including two very large hernias that were developed after my cancer surgery. The doctor tells me if I don't lose at least 50 lbs. the surgery will kill me before the hernias will. This is deadly serious for me. If I can beat the cancer, I can surely beat this!!!

My Goals:
My main goal is to get fit & healthy. But first I have to get healthy enough to have the additional surgeries needed to get my life back. After that it's all down hill.

My Program:
I am working on watching calories, sodium & cholesterol. These are my main issues. I have diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I am making sure I drink my water and am trying to get in exercise at least 4 days per week.

Personal Information:
I was born in Idaho but we moved to Des Moines, Iowa before I turned a year old. Lived there until I was 38. In May 2004 my older sister & best friend was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer. This is an extremely aggressive cancer. With chemo & radiation she made it to January 2005. My sister lived in Mercer, MO. A town of 345 people. Her 16 year old son had many learning issues and needed to stay in this small community where he would get the attention he needed. So...Rick & I sold the house and headed to Missouri. LOL We've been here since.

Other Information:
Rick and I have taken many kids into our home and had none of our own. You do not have to give birth to a child to be a parent. You just have to love and support them unconditionally. That's what life is about!
