A Matter of the Heart

I discovered SparkPeople by accident, or maybe not. Sometimes I think discoveries come into your life for a reason. After discovering that my blood pressure was alarmingly high and being placed on three medications, I decided this could NOT be a lifetime condition I would just have to live with. When the doctor said losing weight could affect whether or not medication would be a life-long story for me, I made the choice to change my lifestyle. Am I struggling with it? Oh my yes.

I discovered SparkPeople by accident, or maybe not. Sometimes I think discoveries come into your life for a reason. After discovering that my blood pressure was alarmingly high and being placed on three medications, I decided this could NOT be a lifetime condition I would just have to live with. When the doctor said losing weight could affect whether or not medication would be a life-long story for me, I made the choice to change my lifestyle. Am I struggling with it? Oh my yes. Do I fall down and fail in my daily goals A LOT? My goodness yes!! But contrary to life before blood pressure, I am now making my life happen rather than allowing life to simply happen to me. My favorite quote is by poet Mari Evans. She says, "I have never been contained except I made the prison." It means to me that my only limitations are the ones I set for myself. So I may fall or fail many times during the day but now, it's the "getting up" over and over again that counts! -- UPDATE: In February 2009, I received a mechanical heart valve as a result of a congenital aortic defect. I am on Coumadin for life. Now I am working on preserving my second chance at life by leading a healthy, happy lifestyle.
