Welcome to my Sparkpage....

I am Amy and live in Denver, Colorado. 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.

I have joined the Biggest Loser 10 week Fall Beleaf In Yourself Challenge with the Crystal Tigers. This is my 2nd Challenge with the Biggest Loser.

I have also joined the 5% Fall Challenge with the Awesome A Team. This is my first 5% Challenge and very excited to get started!

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.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 ths or my other diseases I am going to win the battle with every single one of them!

Last year on July 7th, I became a Mary Kay Consultant and this was the best decision that I have made in my life. It is so awesome being surrounded by positive and passionate women. I am taking an extended break from Mary Kay to focus on healing myself.
