Hello and Welcome! I'm Erin, I recently turned thirty. Why am I in this group? I've had two mitral valve replacements and an aortic valve repair. I've been in atrial fib. and had to have a cardioversion, My last surgery was 3 years ago last month, and I'm doing much better! Good luck with all of your goals! Stop by and visit my page, I have a couple of funny blogs posted. "Why God Made Moms" is a good one. Have a great day!
Hello, My 52 yo husband has just been diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure. We have no idea where to start as far as a good diet for a healthy heart. We were told low fat, low sodium and low carb, but as I search for one for him they seem to be contrary to each other! How do I know which one to use? Any help/suggestions appreciated. Elated/loser
Slow and Steady wins the race!!

I am 64 and weigh 171.5 pounds. My goal weight is between 145-165; I'll decide as I go. I joined SP at the recommendation of my doctor. If I reach my goal weight, doc says I can avoid diabetes. I hope he s right. I have other health issues unrelated to weight, except that I take steroids and other meds which make me hungry and create a midriff "pouch," which I am trying to avoid. I have lost 17 pounds in the past year; I exercise regularly (mostly walking). I am on the verge of completely retiring from work but who knows. My interests are varied; foremost being motorcycling, second is reading, third are movies.
