Time to Live!

I am in my 30's and in terrible shape! I recently wound up in the hospital for the second time because my heart went into atrial fibrillation. There's no wake up call quite like thinking you'll never see your child again. My doctor has now recommended heart ablation surgery because my heart can't seem to stay out of A-fib. It most likely has nothing to do with my weight according to him. BUT - my blood sugar levels creeping up are because of the weight. And so is my lack of energy and ...
I am in my 30's and in terrible shape! I recently wound up in the hospital for the second time because my heart went into atrial fibrillation. There's no wake up call quite like thinking you'll never see your child again. My doctor has now recommended heart ablation surgery because my heart can't seem to stay out of A-fib. It most likely has nothing to do with my weight according to him. BUT - my blood sugar levels creeping up are because of the weight. And so is my lack of energy and extremely stressed attitude. I've lost 6 lbs so far and am on a fully diabetic diet (to try and avoid diabetes) and it is definitely helping. I have more energy and feel much more optimistic. I also joined Curves which is an AWESOME place to workout . I've never liked working out before and this makes it seem so easy and so natural. Plus, added bonus that my best friend goes with me every day so we hold each other accountable for everything we eat or do. Someday soon, you're going to see me as a success story on here!

UPDATE: I had the heart ablation surgery on May 21, 2010. So far, my heart is doing much better and, added bonus, I can actually breathe better so I'm not getting quite so tired now. Every day I seem to feel better than the last!

emoticon Oh, guess I mixed up the states. Thought Liberty was in WV. Our daughter graduated from WV Wesleyan and then got masters at Ohio State U.
Thank you for comments on my Spark Page. Carol emoticon emoticon emoticon

PS Your background page is beautiful! Little boy is adorable! And where is Liberty University? I think there is one in WV, but doubt you are going there.
