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.

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.

    Remember just because it is a Holiday Weekend doesn't mean you can't have a good time and stay on track... just watch be sure to weight the hamburger meat out to 3-4 ounces, layer it with plenty of veggies like lettuce, cucumbers, onions, radishes or your favorites!! Try adding some grilled vegetables to the list... Family BBQ's can be the greatest way to get your family on board to trying fresh grilled vegetables and "Yes" even grilled "Fruits"... Try gilled fruit and veggie kabobs... along with your favorite salsa. Even visit Chef Meg for some of her favorite recipes for grilling!!

    Remember to Plan for those desserts to, no more than 1/8th of a slice if you put it on your tracker!! You should have plenty of room for it!! Let's be Happy with our choices, not sorry about it later! emoticon
