Peggy's Story

I use to be slender, athletic and very active.  But I’ve been worried about my weight ever since I had a bad back injury and surgery several years back, then went from being slim and athletic, to being on inactive and obese.  I have been on several medications and have had difficulty taking off any weight.  In fact I have gained even more weight.  My BMI is awful!!!  Today, I found out a very dear friend of mine just found out that she has had a minor heart attack within the past several months and has numerous genetic strikes against her for the possibility of a major event in the near future.  This scared both of us and has put us both on the track for getting back into shape and getting healthy again, no matter what it takes.  I’m hoping “Go For Red Women” can help in that.  Thank you for being here.  I have no doubt that you save many lives every day.  Please keep up the good work.
