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.

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.

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.

    Good evening sweetie, sorry I am so late getting on SP today. Been a busy girl, working on getting organized one step at a time. Cleaned and organized a drawer and was so motivated I mopped my kitchen floor. Hope your Saturday is super special.

    Didn't want to wait to smile this super Saturday. So I made the decision to do it first thing by making some whole wheat bread, cutting it while it was hot, adding some butter and honey.. I love bread right out of the oven with butter and honey. I just cannot wait sometimes. But if I wait the results are just not the same.

    "Waiting is a trap. There will always be reasons to wait. The truth is, there are only two things in life, reasons and results, and reasons simply don't count." Well I sure have lots of reasons but I am repenting.
