I would rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I am not.
Today is the tomorrow we worried about yesterday and all is fine.
Wonderful news that you can do so much now. Well done

Congrats on your weight loss and continued improvement of your health!!
My daughter had meningitis 3 years ago and it was a horrible experience. I feel your pain and happy that you recovered. I guess it was a mixed blessing to get sick because they were able to find the problems with your heart.

This time last year I was in a hospital bed quarantined with Meningitis. It was at that time they discovered that I had 2 congenital heart defects (which were being agitated by the meningitis). For the last year I have been recovering and unfortunately gaining some weight. I didn't have the energy to do any of the normal activities that I used to do. Even walking short distances would make me winded.
I joined SparkPeople to get things under control. My weight had reached the danger BMI zone and of course that wasn't going to help my heart. I have been eating well and exercising and participating in what SparkPeople has to offer.
Yesterday evening I walked one mile (3 hefty hills) in 20 minutes with my daughter and grandson and I wasn't even winded!
It was the biggest accomplishment for me because it means that I am mending!
Thank you to everyone involved with SparkPeople!!!!!! I couldn't have done it without you!
