Hi everyone, I am sort of a new member. I joined this site a few years ago and have been off and on it since then, but really haven't done much of anything. Except, watch my health deteriorate to the point that my heart was beating at about 150 per min 24/7 NOT GOOD!! After months of testing they have no answers yet as to why, but did discover I have already had one heart attack. SO, its time to make some BIG changes in my life.
A few months ago I could not walk a block without getting dizzy and winded, even sweeping the floor was a workout and a half. Now, things are much better. I do still have to take meds to keep my heart rate in the normal range, but I am up to 30 min on my treadmill and at least another 20 min doing aerobics and feel the normal increase in my heart rate, I feel way better than I have in a very long time. Now my biggest downfall is food!!! So I have decided to come back to this site and ask for the help I'm going to need and the encouragement that of course will go along with it. My husband is also far from the picture of health. but not to eager to do much about his health and that's his choice *although I am still working on him lol*
But he is also my big downfall.....I HAVE NO WILL POWER!! But that's all on me and I have to change that. Baby steps they say!!
Another bit of a challenge I have is, I am currently living in Mexico and wow is it hard to eat healthy here.....trying to find so many foods here is almost impossible....and if you do you pretty much have to sell and arm and a leg to buy it!!! So no doubt I will be doing a lot of food research!!! So this is me in a nutshell....and I hope the net shell will be a smaller one soon!!!
Thanks for taking the time to read this and good luck to you all!!
