Well, as most people on this site have said - "I've been over weight my entire life." Now at age 53, going to be 54 the first week of December, I got really good news from the Dr. I went to have all annual exams done & a few extra's because my sister just had to have stints put in to clear a blockage to her heart. I had a nuclear stress test done, as well as EKG, and sonagrams with die of my heart. Good results - no blockages, my vessals are all in good shape and are what they should be for someone my age. Also did pulmonary test, no COPD, asthma, or any other problems - the only thing he could find was overweight, and he thought that was what is causing me to be short of breath. He had a funny analygie (SP?), and that is, a guy goes into the auto shop and says, hey my truck's not running so well, it's really bumpy - and the mechanic tells him, well you are carrying a 2 ton load on a half ton chasis, that may be the problem, so goes with me, and I am ready to rid myself of some of that 2 ton load!
