Wanted to share a picture of our pup. She's 2 years old but still a pup in our hearts. She is an Aussie Doodle and we love her dearly.

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 75 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.


Member Since: 8/8/2015

Fitness Minutes: 199,796

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.

Nutrition Goals are to track all food eaten on the SparkPeople tracker and stay within the calories and nutritional goals set by SP for eating a heart healthy diet.

Drink at least 8 glasses of non calorie, non-sweetened liquids a day.



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.

    Hey Carol, how's it going? I've been doing better on my steps lately, but for some reason, not eating like I should at every meal. Hopefully some day I'll get this under control.


    Hope you've had a great week. Enjoy your weekend!!!

    Hello RedRobin! I don't understand something about my fitness awards. I haven't been tracking my fitness by hand, but my Fitbit is synced with the Spark. I guess that's how I am getting awards. It's kind of funny:). Thanks for liking my awards emoticon

    I've always liked this quote, it's so very true. I had a really relaxing weekend, hope you did too. But today it's back to the grind. Let's don't forget to get our bodies moving. I'm going to try for 15,000 steps today, join me if you dare.

    Hope you have a fantastic Monday, Carol!
