I was on a road to success for so long...but I have gotten lost! I started my initial journey in 2005 and up until September of 2014 the direction was full steam ahead.

I was born with heart defect and had open heart surgery at 11 years of age. Until September of 2014, I was as active as I could be...I finished 9 half marathons and countless 5k and 10k races. Ie was down around 20% body fat and was working out 6 days a week!

One Friday in September, I received a phone call from my cardiologist...I was having unexplained irregular heartbeats...I had to stop running! I am now limited to only light to moderate exercise...and am on beta blockers...

Additionally, I moved home and now am close to friends and family...and we like to eat and drink. My self control is gone...my weight has gone up up up...I have gained a total of 15 pounds, lost my muscle tone and strength and my cardio/pulmonary stamina is gone.

I am trying to climb back up that mountain...I am looking for the trail back to success!!
