I don't have any of the health issues you mention, but I do want to welcome you to SP!

Best of luck to you.

I would like to hear from others with the same health issues ie; aortic aneurysms, chronic osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis, CAD, and high blood pressure. I am very motivated to lose weight and live as healthy as I can be. I am nearly 72. I love to garden and design and make jewelry.
