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Well, that is old and outdated.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.

Hi, I'm very new to this site actually your the first contact. I'm still trying to figure out how to get around it. I'm 55 yr old woman who just moved to the NY area from MN. I'm alittle displaced at the moment. I'm trying to find a way to keep modivated since I don't have any friends here yet. I hope this site keeps me going and connect with some great people. If you have any tips for me it would be greatly appreciated. I hope I do this right and it gets to you. Thank you Sharon

Hello there - a quick hit to say 'Hi' and thanks for your past support - makes the effort seem more worthwhile when people notice.

Been absent all of November (travel/illness) but back in the saddle for a fresh start in December. .

Congratulations on your designation as a Motivator!
