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.

10 STEPS TO SELF-CARE - If it feels wrong, don't do it; Say "exactly" what you mean; Don't be a people pleaser; Trust your instincts; Never speak bad about yourself; Never give up on your dreams; Don't be afraid to say "No"; Don't be afraid to say "Yes"; Be kind to yourself; Let go of what you can't control; Stay away from drama and negativity as much as possible.

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!
