Welcome. It's hard to lose weight when you're restricted in what you can do, but it is possible. Just keep trying things until you find what works for you. Glad you decided to join us.

hang in there and keep trying. I have Dilated Cadiomyopathy and a leaky heart valve, Type II Diabetes and Crohn's (those are the major ones) and I too have to watch my sugar and salt, etc. I can only do low intensity exercise. I've found Aquafit and find I can have a full range of motion I don't have on land and can get a great workout without hurting myself. Hopefully you'll find something that suits you.

Hi! I am a 30 year old mother of 2 who has a VSD and heart arrhythmia. I have to do low intensity exercise and really watch my blood sugar! It's tough to lose weight this way but I'm determined!
