I don't mean to be glib, but I will do an Irish gig when my scale says 200! I am a long ways from it but working toward it daily!

My wake up call came form an automobile accident and 6 months in the hospital and being told that I would be forever in a wheel chair and on a walker!

UPDATE: God proved the doctors and surgeons wrong! Even though I did come home in a wheel chair and using the walker, God had bigger and better plans for me. I'm not in a wheel chair nor do I use the walker and I finished my first 5K and place first for my age group.

Be blessed,

My wake up call was Thanksgiving two years ago, when I stayed home from the family dinner because of my knee problems and my brother has the dinner in his basement and if I fell down the steps, I didn't want anyone to have to help me up. I saw my quality of life was going down the tubes.

My husband has atrial fibrillation and it changed his life a lot. He seems to have problems with blood clots and needs blood thinners for the rest of his life. He also takes metoprolol regularly to keep his heart beating regularly. It might be a good idea to have that checked.

"The world is one country and mankind its citizens" one of the many truths spoken by Baha'u'llah and "Love is the light that guideth in darkness, the living link that uniteth God with man, that assureth the progress of every illumined soul."

Hi KITCHEN, This is a great site.
I am 70 years young and doing it and I am sure you can too.

Portion control and exercise. Stay with those tiny steps.

The slower you lose the weight the better it stays away as long as you keep to your Nutrition and exercise.

Be mindful that happiness isn't based on possessions, power, or prestige, but on relationships with people we love and respect.

Remember that while money talks, Friendships sing and laugh out loud.

You can do this! Take those steps to eat better and exercise. Do it slowly if needed. But you can get support. I do know AFIB is atrial fibrillation (not sure if I spelled that exactly right) and is a heart issue with irregular heart beats I think without looking it up. I did case management for elderly and disabled and ran into that, and the medications for it, a lot of times. I hope the dream never comes true to you. My blood pressure was just borderline high until I had a stroke and a brain bleed Halloween morning a little over 6 months ago. Now my blood pressure needs 3 different medications to regulate even though I work on eating and exercise. It has also left me with some deficits although I am so much better than I was. Balance when standing or walking, some dizziness, and right hand shakes and won't always do what I want. But I've come so far from the 5 weeks in hospitals and a myriad of problems, including a vent and tubes for the first few days. They told me though that the fact that I had been exercising a lot before if what helped me to bounce back relative quickly as this goes. It could take up to a year to reach the place I will most likely plateau so I'm hoping balance gets better. But I'm out walking and doing things again even if not at the same level before the stroke. You can definitely do this. We both can!

What is AFIB? You mentioned it in your dream that you had, and I've never seen that abbreviation before.

You've come to the right place to start getting healthier than you are now. This is a GRAND place and it's helped me tremendously! Just start with your baby steps like you said, and do your best. God only asks us to do our best, in His Word, and nobody has the right to ask you for anything more. So, just do your best and let God do the rest! If there is anything I can do for you, just HOLLER and I'll do the best I can, to give you a hand up!

Be blessed,

Welcome to the team. Wouldn't it be wonderful if cash registers could tell us of impending dangers? However you are making a start. Even if you still go to your favorite fast food, make better choices. Most have some healthy choices these days. Also keep tracking and make small goals that are attainable and you will be able to move mountains in the future!

FAITH is not believing that GOD CAN, it is knowing that He WILL.

So I woke up this morning from a dream about the cashier at my local fast food restaurant refusing to fill my order because I was in AFIB(somehow there cash register knew this). What can I say....dreams are weird, LOL
My family has a history of heart disease, and it does cross my mind sometime. (ya think?)
But THIS DREAM, is scaring the crap out of me.
SO, here I am.
I know I will stumble, I know I'm not perfect and will not be perfect on this program. What I also know is that, I must take steps and make strides to change the way I am living!

Today I begin....baby steps, tracking every bite, learning from what I see on my "results" and "totals"
With each day and each week, I hope to see change and improvement in my choices and a downward trend to my measurements and weight.
