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!

    In answer to a question on my blog - there are actually 2 different challenges on Spark People that go by the name Biggest Loser. The one that started in December is currently going by the name BL Snow More Excuses Challenge (I'm on the Black Panther team). The other Biggest Loser challenge always goes by numbers... they just finished BLC38 and the new challenge will be BLC39 starting in January. I joined BLC38 in the middle of their Fall challenge, and I really like it. Doing challenges makes losing weight and exercising into a fun game. I also do the 5% Challenges, which I highly recommend if you like challenges. Sign up with BLC39! You've got nothing to lose...and many friends to gain.
