A river rat story

I'm 53, been overweight most of my adult life and want to get it off because of a heart attack at 45. I did not know I'd had a heart attack. I went for pre-operative testing for carpal tunnel surgery and they insisted on a cardiologist's ok first because my ekg showed a heart attack.

The cardio verified it and I've been drastically changing my diet-I was a total crucible and soy addict but no more after finding out how bad they are if you are hypothyroid. I had had NO signs I'd had a heart problem. No pain, no flu symptoms....only fatigue but I was doing a construction project and thought that was the reason for the fatigue. So get checked! If your cholesterol/triglycerides is high do something about it! Never be afraid to go read and learn about anything in your life! Be proactive in your healthcare!!!

SparkPoints: 47,892

Fitness Minutes: 3,838

My Goals:
To lose weight and eat more healthfully

My Program:
Tracking what I eat and trying to make better choices

Personal Information:
Jack of all trades, master of none. But close to master on many!

Problem with me is I refuse to admit there's something I can't do.

Former accountant, restaurant owner and operator, personal chef, bakery owner and operator and current student in court reporting.

I've tried sky diving, singing in a band, drove demo derby, building my own kitchen cabinets, decorated wedding cakes, drove across country with my kids in a moving van dragging my car behind it, belly dance student, soaper, and any craftwork probably than you can think of including some you haven't like china painting......

Other Information:
If it's on film or in print I probably do or would like it. Voracious reader and watcher of films, information, or do it yourself.
