Gonna Do It This Time!

I am a 67 year old husband and dad that is seriously overweight and out of shape. I've tried Spark before but gave it up after I didn't seem to make any progress, so I wiped the slate clean and am going to do it right this time, for ME!

I finall y had to have surgery to replace a faulty aortic valve and aortic root. The valve was only passing about 30% and the flow pressure had caused a weak spot in the aorta. I was probably less than 6 months from a blowout that would have cost me my life. I have managed to come from 300 pounds down to 270 and have a long-term goal of 200 pounds. Exercise has always been my problem, but with cardio rehab 3 days a week, I am developing a schedule to follow after rehab is over.

I noticed your comment that you need support. Is there anything I can do?
If not, I just want you to know that you are not alone in this journey.

Welcome to Spark Georgia-The Official Team. I am the offical team cheerleader to offer motivation and support. Come by the team board and check out the topic board. Feel free to jump in at anytime.

There is so many resources’ here at Spark People that you can learn about your health. I have learned so much by just reading the article. This is a learning process, we have to train ourselves new ways of feeding our bodies the right nutrients, etc.

At the Spark Georgia-The Official Team we have a Question and Answer thread if you have questions or even find the answer. If you haven’t already introduced yourself come by that thread and let us know where you’re from.

About me I joined Spark People last April and so far I have lost a little over 40 pounds. I live in Villa Rica, Georgia with my DH and four boys. My family has been very supportive through this journey. I am also the leader of another team called Spark Power here at Spark People. If you need anything please let me know.

Everyone one tease’s me about my dance I do if someone does well so if you see it you know that I have gotten excited! So I am sure excited you’re a part of the team.
