It's Time to Get Healthy!

My name is Nancy Ferguson Sanchez and I'm from a small town named Zwolle, Louisiana! I originally weighed 247 pounds when I started Spark in 2007 and I lost around 58 pounds! Luckily I didn't gain back every pound! But I did gain back around 19 pounds. I lost some of that weight just by walking! But now with the walking and watching what I eat, I'm ready to reach my goal of being at a healthy weight. October 23, 2013 is the starting date for me to start getting healthier!

I've had another fight with cancer this year! I have everything that is associated with obesity - high blood pressure, diabetes and sleep apnea!! I was lucky and they got all the cancer by doing a hysterectomy at MD Anderson on May 3. But because of my colon cancer surgeries in 2002 and 2003 my uterus was mixed with scar tissue and they had to take 6 more inches of colon!! Then after that my incision didn't hold and I had 4 months to heal! Now I'm over all that and my heart doctor put me on a very strict diet and wants me to lose 60 pounds in 6 months!!!! We'll see! :)

Welcome back and thanks for stopping by my page. The great news is, you didn't gain it all back. That is a success story in itself. I'll add you as a friend and we can help each other. I've been wanting to re-lose 10 pounds plus another 10-20 pounds. I just haven't gotten serious enough to do it. Wishing you a GREAT day !!!
