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.

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.

    Thank you for the suggestion! Another Sparkie recommended the same thing. Her person is in Canada, so I thought I would try her, but she still is half way across Canada from me! The product came from Alberta and I am from Saskatchewan, so I would not even venture a guess who could really help me. It may not even have a bricks and mortar address. The only online presence is in the US, and they just distribute this product to my country and Europe through anyone who can get a license to sell it.. Its really a shame because I thought I finally found a non medicinal solution to easing some of the terrible pain I am in constantly :-( I had tried and enjoyed a similar product before (but it died shortly after the six month warranty). This one had way more power, like a real TENS machine.
