Hi, I'm Celeste. I am happy to join Spark People again. Sorry I left. Well let's say I got very sick. I have a bad heart condition which led me to a stroke and heart attack and blood clot in my brain. Well my family and friends at St. Luke's Hospital saved my life in 2013. Unfortunately I am disabled and gained weight again up to 276.8. I've been on a diet and as of 12/6/16 I'm down to 266.5. A lot has happened between 2013 and now: hospitalizations and surgeries and added meds but I think (or at least feel) that this time on the road to get better healthy wise more important than just looking better. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ I hope I can reach my goal. See ya.

Fitness Minutes: 8,885

My Goals:
My goals are definitely to lose as much weight as possible, in a healthy way, and enjoy activites better with my husband and children.

My Program:
I have completely changed my diet. I was a coffee drinker all day until dinner time. No more.

I am now drinking my 8 glasses of water a day, having a small breakfast, lean lunch, lean cuisine dinner with plenty of vegetables and/or salad.

I have also started a 15 minute walk from home to work once a week. I have a heart condition and have a defibrilator; my heart rate can not exceed a certain point

I'm just starting slow and will pick up as the weeks go by.

Personal Information:

Other Information:
My favorite things a spending time with my husband and children. They are great. I am also a Twilight fanatic - love the movies. Can't wait til June 30th for Eclipse to come out!!!!! : )

    I'm helping mrsmiller777 get reminders out about the SPARKTOGETHER meetup she announced in January scheduled on:

    It's a bring a dish, so first let us know that you're coming, and try to let us know what you're bringing by stopping by at her original blog. I'm going to view what everyone is bringing, and fill in what we may need. Once you reply on the blog page, we'll be sending information including an address and phone number via Spark Mail. Let us know if you have a GPS, or need directions from your location. I hope to meet you there!
