I am 50 years old. The doctor put my first pacemaker on 2002 when my heart rate was 25-35 B.P.M. After they raised my heart rate to 70 B.P.M, They went in to repair my mitral valve with a ring in 2005 . In 2009 they replaced the pacemaker. Along the way they added 3 stents. This year after I was sleeping all the time they found my heart output was only 40%. The doctor said I needed to loose weight. I found this website so I can track everything. Back in 2005 when I went thru rehab I was down to 220 lbs. When they found the low heart output I was at 275lbs. Since using the WII Fit for the last 2 months and measuring all my food I lost about 30 lbs on my way to losing more. My Partner and I are working together on this. We have been Vegan for several years. This is my life.
