Hi! I'm a 52 year old lady. I started exercising a year ago, after having two heart attacks in 3 short months. Turned out that they were due to a very rare, deadly tumor on an adrenal gland. Nothing wrong with the heart, thank God. However, after spending over a month in the hospital with nothing to do but eat, and having quit smoking while there I have gained weight.

Hi! I'm a 52 year old lady. I started exercising a year ago, after having two heart attacks in 3 short months. Turned out that they were due to a very rare, deadly tumor on an adrenal gland. Nothing wrong with the heart, thank God. However, after spending over a month in the hospital with nothing to do but eat, and having quit smoking while there I have gained weight. I came home with orders to walk to rebuild the heart and found that I really enjoy the exercise. My age has also helped to add those inches to the waist line, my main goal being to lose some of them.

Well, that is old and outdated. Wrote it about 7 years ago. I now own a Curves Franchise, teach Zumba and am training for a half marathon in Utah, The Zion Half in March 2014.

Thank you so much for the encouragement! I will be 61 in Sept so i think we're about the same age... i'm not sure i could ever do a marathon, and i'm always amazed at the people who do them! I give you a emoticon for that! I'm also a firm believer in baby steps... it's what makes the weight loss stay off... hope we can continue to keep in touch!

That's emoticon

I am glad you want to do it again! Look into these techniques for running injury free: ChiRunning by Danny Dreyer and/or Jeff Galloway's run/walk/run.
