Good for you for taking this seriously! A myocardial ischemic attack (heart attack) and CHF are nothing to laugh at. Too many people think that they can get away with continuing the poor diets that led them to the heart attack by taking medications. The meds help you survive, but its not a life I would chose to lead.
The 14 pounds is, as you said, mostly water weight. But it's what was clogging up your lungs and making it hard to breathe. Your also dropping all of your blood fat levels, your blood sugar levels and reducing inflammation levels.
I have seen cases where people make good changes and have been able to reverse some if not all of the heart damage. I've seen people improve their heart pumping ability from 15% to a normal 40 to 60%! That's a huge improvement.
Keep up the good work and update us on how you are doing. I hope to keep hearing good reports from you!
