For the rest of my life

My goal is to be active and strong for the rest of my life.

AFTER THE PULMONARY EMBOLISM

Thanks to SparkPeople, I had none of the risk factors for an embolism. (no longer sedentary and only 10 pounds away from a healthy bmi - woo hoo) Ignoring those wonderful details, my body decided that having a clot in a lung would be an exciting adventure. Who knew? First I got to visit an Urgent Care, next an Emergency Room followed by the ICU and cardiac unit. Oh, what fun. ...

AFTER THE PULMONARY EMBOLISM

Thanks to SparkPeople, I had none of the risk factors for an embolism. (no longer sedentary and only 10 pounds away from a healthy bmi - woo hoo) Ignoring those wonderful details, my body decided that having a clot in a lung would be an exciting adventure. Who knew? First I got to visit an Urgent Care, next an Emergency Room followed by the ICU and cardiac unit. Oh, what fun.

Although I am not yet cleared for strenuous exercise, I have been allowed to start walking again. Instead of running 12 miles a week, I'm working my way up to walking without being winded.

If anything, I am even more determined to regain my strength. Each nurse and doctor commented on how "otherwise, you are quite healthy." (Honestly, that's not very comforting while lying in a hospital bed.) Now that I know my body is willing to pull crazy stunts out of the blue, I will prepare by becoming as strong as possible.

Thank you for your kind words on my blog. This journey is a real bear. There is a reason we put on the weight. Getting to the root is key to taking it off and keeping it off.
