Meet the North Country BetterU Participants: Deb Simmons


My name is Deb Simmons. I am 62 years old. I have been married 46 years. I have five grown children, twelve grandchildren and  two great-grandchildren. At age 53 I had a heart attack. At first I did everything I needed to do, like eating right and exercising. Then, as time went, by life gets in the way and you start eating out more, eating unhealthy foods, and make excuses not to exercise. Then you gain five pounds, then ten, and pretty soon you’re obese.

On this program I plan to learn to cook and eat healthier. I also am going to exercise. I want to lose weight and get healthier so I can be around for a long time for my family. I also want to look and feel better for myself.
