Hi Gwen,

I've only been signed on with Spark People for about a week so I'm just starting to get my feet wet with some of the teams, challenges, etc.

I too, have an ICD & couldn't help but wonder if you've had any therapies from yours? Mine was implanted Sept 2003 & so far I've been fortunate that mine has only paced, but not given me any therapies.

I agree. Considering how many heart patients are out there, this should be one of the largest, boomingest groups on SparkPeople.

Last night I took the liberty of adding a few links to the Team Page.

Blessings,
Joann

All things are possible with God.

For perseverance I find that I have to reset my goals from time to time. If I have a "sick week" then it puts me behind. Then I just start over and keep going. Judi Pearl emoticon

Natalie you are reight on! It is all those pebbles in the road that make us trip up. We sometimes forget to look at the "...just this once..." and "...I'll just do it this time..." pebbles that we face every day. Each "pebble" is important in the whole picture of every day. Thanks for the analogy.
Have a great New Year!

Hello everyone! Today is day 1 of my perseverance for health and happiness. I have to lose some weight and change my lifestyle. I turned 44 on the 29th and it really bothers me that i'm so lazy.

I do try to regulate but my cravings for heavy, hot foods that fill your tummy will win once in awhile. Thank you.

I have always felt that a balanced diet is a lot better than a negative "do without" diet. Perhaps you can just regulate your portion size to fit your dietary needs.

I will join the goal. I'm a rabbit, but I cannot give up the potatoes and meats. I exercise mainly in front of the T.V. and need to get to a gym. I have high blood pressure, Reynauds syndrome in the fingers so they cannot get cold and a few other problems...procrastinator too.

Glad to see some of our Healthy Hearts are being energized to persevere to greater health. I am sticking to the fruits and vegetables and staying away from adding salt. What are some other ways our members are trying to become healthy?

I eat 3 fruits and 2 vegetables daily but try to eat more when I can.

I am encouraged to see that some of us are responding to this challenge to include fruits and vegetables daily in our diets. However, we need more SP members to take up the challenge. We all know that it takes PERSEVERANCE to change our habits and improve our health. I am focusing more on adding increased quantities of fruits and vegies to all my meals.

Gwen, I agree. This site is a great way to share information to help others with similar heart situations. There are lots of Healthy Hearts members who could assist each other by sharing what has happened to them. I hope all who read this will respond and share!

They're are so many heart patients out there. We should have a big group.

I am willing to do the challenge. I don't think the team leader is here anymore. So we can make this challenge for anyone interested in participating.

The positive challenge of making sure we each have fresh fruit and vegetables each and every day is one way we can PERSEVERE!
Good choice!

Hi, I two think we should have a team challege. What would you think of exercising for 30 minutes a day at least 3 days a week? Or maybe eating 3 fruits and 2 vegetables a day?

I am a little disappointed that this team does not have any Team Goals posted. I am sure there is someone out there who feels the same as I that our Team has an important role to encourage and lead others to Healthy Hearts and Better Health. It takes small steps and constant PERSEVERANCE. We are all in the same boat and we have to keep paddling!
