I am a 12 year breast cancer survivor and also had a mild heart attack. In August 2015, I decided that since I made it through those events, I was not going to let my inactivity take years off the rest of my life. I saw something mentioned on MSN about SparkPeople and went online to check it out. I joined that day. Since then, I am proud to say that as of now I have lost 85 pounds and quite a few inches and was given the okay by my doctor to discontinue my cholesterol meds completely. I was able to discontinue my beta blocker and my blood pressure meds last year. I have so much energy and love to walk, which I do every day unless I am sick. No other excuses allowed.

My Goals:
To get back to my final weight goal of 138 (+/- 3%) .

To restart working on decluttering my house for at least 15 minutes 3 days a week and giving away, donating or throwing away at least one item per day.


My Program:
Exercise goals

1. Do at least 15 minutes of ST exercises three times a week

2. Walk at least 8,000 steps per day including three 20 minute walks. Steps, time and mileage tracked by my Fitbit.

Personal Information:
I was born and raised in South Haven, Michigan but have been living in central Ohio for over 30 years. I love the outdoors and am a country gal at heart. I am married and DH and I live on a 5 acre wooded site surrounded by farm fields in a small rural town in the heart of Ohio. I have 3 married children and 7 grandchildren whom I love dearly.


Other Information:
I reached my weight goal of 138 pounds (+/- 3% 134/142) and since have regained 15 pounds. I am now working on getting that 15 pounds back off. Right now I seem to be on a plateau and am struggling. I am hoping that the challenges I am doing will make me accountable and help me shed those 15 pounds. I am geared up and ready to do this.

    I want to be the smile
    I want to see the change
    I want to be your friend
    From the start and once it starts
    It never ends
    I want to be your pal
    I want to be around
    I want to be your friend
    When you are down
    I want to be the sunshine
    On your smiling face
    I want to be the moon
    No, I want to be ocean
    Where all we do is float
    Under the sun on the rolling sea
    Oh, I want to be the sunshine
    No, I want to be the moonshine
    I want to be the night time lullaby
    When you're so afraid
    And I think I found a way
    To put a smile on your lonely face
    I think I found a way
    A way to break down all the walls
    I think I found a way to say
    I think I found a way to say hello
    I think I found a way
    Without saying anything at all

    Wishing you a Happy Valentine and many good wishes to you through out our journey to a healthy lifestyle. emoticon emoticon
