Hello Skippy.

Yes, changes are mandatory when we suffer cardiac challenges. I am always amazed at how much I really eat when I RELIGIOUSLY chart every morsel that goes into my mouth. I have had serious heart disease for almost 20 years and have had two CABG procedures. Like you, I lost a lot of weight a couple of times and promptly put it all (and more) back on.

SP has been a personal Godsend for me. I am now 8 lb from my goal and my diabetes is under very good control with an A1c of 5.2.

So hang in there my friend. That light at the end of the tunnel IS NOT the headlight of an oncomming train.

Whew!!! From the title of your post I thought it was about a lot of changes at Sparks--and I am just learning how to navigate around here.

I have abfib too--also had an aorta valve replacement--both got me back on the right track of eating--I got sloppy all the month of February but I'm back to eating right--I find it very easy to do IF I don't bring the wrong things home--I can handle them outside!!

Glad you are back--this is a great place.

Hi. I started this to try and get myself back on track in a healthier lifestyle to improve my health and better handle my atrial fibrillation. About 6 months ago I realized that my health was declining rapidly and if I wanted to start enjoying life again I needed to make some drastic changes. I started eating healthier and walking and I managed to lose about 60 lbs (went from 290 down to 230). Then about a month ago my afib got much worse and I ended up having an afib ablation procedure. I had some complications from the procedure and was unable to exercise and lost the incentive to continue eating healthy. I slide back into my fast food, comfort food choices and stopped losing weight. When I noticed the weight was starting to go back up, I decided I needed to do something different to get back on track. So far this site seems to be the answer. Just tracking my food and exercise helps me make much better choices and I'm seeing small improvements which motivates me to continue. Never tried anything like this before, but so far it seems to be working well. Still have lots to discover about the site. There is so much here.
