I just turned 66 and decided it was time for a change. Well, actually, the heart doctor decided for me. I have swelling in my legs and feet and he thought...well, I thought as well, that I had congestive heart failure and he told me that I had to lose weight or I would die. Well, that got my attention right quick. Needless to say, I went to a dietitian who put me on a 1500 calorie diet and I have lost around 26 lbs so far, but I had gotten to a plateau and since I don't go back to see the dietitian till August decided that I needed more motivation and inspiration. I am motivated, to be sure, but it is difficult for me to do much exercise other than armchair exercise, which I have been doing, since I use a walker to walk. But my husband is recovering from having two stents replaced and they told him to walk so I am thinking of getting out there with my walker and seeing how far I can go....probably not far, but that would get me outdoors as well as giving him incentive to walk as well.

"To be "heart healthy' focus on the positive; it's persistence rather than perfection that will create progress."
The difference between success and failure is the effort we put into getting there.
