Welcome . Hope You are recovering well. When picking up a cup of coffee seams challenging, it looks like picking up 30 lbs is hopeless. It took me about a year . Cardio rehab was great for me. Good luck . Ask me whatever.
Thank you Frank for the reply. I am at 240 right now and the Dr says my weight is not a problem, that lots of patients are much bigger. I have been so worried that being so big would be a problem. I haven't been able to exercise due to the heart problems. I am looking forward to feeling better and being able to exercise. I know it will help with the weight loss. I'll check out the diabetic board. Have a great weekend. Glenda
This is for ME!!!

I wish you well. I dont see much traffic on this board and that is a shame. those of us who have undergone procedures on our hearts have much to share. I,too, have diabetes and have had two CABG;s. The first in 1992 and the last in 2009. At my peal,my weight was more that 335 lb. I am not at 166 so I know it can be done.
Keep on truckin and keep in touch, please.

I am looking for support and advice. I am having open heart surgery in a couple of weeks to replace a valve (not bypass, but none the less, open heart). I am looking for people that have been through open heart surgery and any tips and advice I can get. I need to lose about 70 lbs which I will continue to work on post surgery. I am also diabetic. Would appreciate anything anyone could share. I live in Spokane, WA.
