Welcome. Congratulations on the weight loss. Sorry to hear you've inherited all those problems. It's hard to deal with all that but you're doing the right thing by taking control instead of just sitting around letting things happen. Keep at it!

Welcome. You have made a good choice. You will get great support from spark members. It is great that you have lost 60 lbs. I am talking from experience I have heart problems along with others. Keep going with dieting and a healthy life style, I'm sure you will you will have Everything you want. God Bless
Figured I would join this group since I have a few heart health concerns and getting support on Spark would be nice.
I am 34, divorced, no kids, though I really hope I get lucky enough to have one or three. I have high blood pressure (and have since I was in high school, even though I was a normal weight and active), and 5 types of irregular heart rhythm (PVCs, PACs, SVT, heart block and sinus rhythm).
All of that is hereditary, as are aneurysms and other things from that side of the family, so the best I can hope for is to be healthy and take care of my wonky ticker. That is why I am with spark and losing weight (down 60lbs). I want to live. I want to have kids. I want to have good quality of life.
Hope to see you all around.
