Gosh, where do I start. Years ago I was diagnosed with hypothyroid disease and the weight poured on. I take my meds like I'm suppose to but the weights still here. Now I have peripheral artery disease (PAD) after a stint and a bypass (femoral to femeral) I am still having problems and need another bypass so its painful to walk for more than a few minutes. I've got high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and high triglycerides. I'm border line diabetic. I refuse to give up and have a new sense of purpose. I'm determined to get healthy again. So I joined a class at our VA called MOVE. The class was 16 weeks and taught us all about nutrition, almost information overload. We continue with once a month information classes. I have all the information and am slowly incorporating it into my life so it will stay with me. I am now in an 8 week strength training now we have done upper body and lower body. It includes the muscles why we work the muscles how to do the exercise at home, in a gym or even if we are sitting in a chair. When this series is done we have an 8 week walk/cardio program. I think I am doing the right thing and hoping it will show me results on the scale. I just havent figured out how to give up my pepsi that I love. But I'm working on it.
