AnneMargo gets healthy

This will be long and complicated, and I apologize in advance! I've struggled with body issues and eating since I was a teenager. I've cycled through bouts of bulimic-like behavior, anorexic behavior, and binge eating. I've been down to a little over 100 lbs (and I'm 5'10 1/2") and over 240 lbs. In 1999, at my heaviest, I used the Healthy Exchange program to lose over 70 lbs, and kept it off until about 2007--and I'm still approximately 40 lbs under my highest weight. In July 2006, I ...

In July 2006, I suffered a heart block and cardiac arrest, and had a dual ICD/pacemaker implanted in my chest. I'm determined to take back control of my life and health. I'm working to be within my healthy weight range and have my active and busy life back.

You know what? I think you are right! I am more confident and feel wiser then I did at 20 too. Wouldn't want to go back, that's for sure!
Thanks for your comments! Have a wonderful day! emoticon

I'm having issues staying physically active. I'm up at 5:15 and leave my house at 6:30 t0 drive to work. I leave between 4:30 and 5:00 and it's an hour drive home. At that point in time - I'm exhausted and have very little energy or motivation to get moving. Reading your story has motivated me and I'm going to do my best to keep moving. Thanks! emoticon
