Hello I am Amy from Denver, Colorado welcome to my Sparkpage....

I have joined the Biggest Loser 10 week Winter Snow More Excuses with the Crystal Tigers . This is my 3rd Challenge with the Biggest Loser Challenges!

I have also joined the 5% Fall Challenge with the Awesome A Team. This is my first 5% Challenge and I am enjoying the challenge!

I am the Team Leader of the Managing Diabetes Group!

I have worked myself up to 120 minutes of walking for cardio every morning and getting 90+ minutes of strength training. My favorite tool for strength training is the Resistance Band.

I neglected myself for many years after the loss of my husband in 2001. I lived on a diet of chips and Mountain Dew. It was very hard stopping the chip and Mountain Dew habit. I have turned my mind around and I am now living a healthy lifestyle.

The 10 years that I neglected my body because at the time I just plain didn't care anymore about myself, unfortunately the self abuse has left me now with serious life threating diseases: COPD(Emphysema), Type 2 Diabetes, Chronic Kidney Disease, Heart Disease and Morbid Obesity. I was also diagosed with Gastroparesis, this is something I have had since my childhood and nevr knew I had a problem.For about a year I carried around self-pity. Just with the COPD alone there is no cure and it progresses. I went to Pulmonary Rehab and learned how I can slow down its progression. Lately have I been saying who says I am going to die from this or my other diseases I am going to win the battle with every single one of them!
