Hello everyone! :)
My name is Jessica but you can call me Jess or Jessie. I'm 23 years young and have been overweight the majority of my life. I know if I just kick this weight, my heart problem will more than likely go away! I'm engaged to my fiance of 4 years now and we eventually want to have children someday soon. That alone is enough motivation to lose weight - who wants to be pregnant and not show? =/ On top of that, if I don't kick this weight now, the baby weight is not going to help me any! I want to be healthy for my kids, too, so here I am, back on Sparkpeople, trying to make a serious go at it this time!
While the doctors have never 'caught' what is wrong with my heart, I get something similar I suppose to a heart murmur. The best way I can describe it is it feels like my heart is pumping and then all of a sudden gets stuck. It stays like that for like a second or two before finally releasing and its like one LARGE thump all of a sudden, releasing everything that was 'stuck'! It never causes pain - it just really really worries me. Having 127 lbs to lose, though, I can easily see how my weight is a huge issue and if I don't kick this now, worse things could come!
Feel free to add me and say hi! :)
No matter how slow you go, you are still lapping everyone on the couch!
