I have known my whole life that I was fat. But you never ever realize that there is a negative effect on your body until you have a doctor look in the eye and says, "you had a heart attack". So at the age of 47, my body betrayed me with the ultimate dysfunction. My world crashed down around my ears that day. All I could think of was I want to live. My daughter was getting married in September and I had a new grandbaby due in November and another in April. I want to grow old with my husband. I want to watch my grandbabies graduate high school. I am tooooo young to let this stop me. The next day when the doc did my procedure and leaned over me and told me that I had a 99% blockage in my right cornary artery, I cried silently. I realized that my body didn't betray me, I had betrayed it. My lifestyle and diet had betrayed my body. So that was my eye opening moment. Sorry if it seems like I keep beating a dead horse with this.
