I will total the mileage everyone records and report progress several times a week.

My sister had to have 2 heart valves repaired last spring, caused her a lot of anxiety but she cam through it with flying colors and she is 67.

Hi,
I am a 55 yr old woman from Vermont. I was told by my heart doctor that I had to quit smoking and lose 20 lbs by June. Eventually, I will have to have my heart valve fixed and he wants me in the best health so recovery will be easy. I quit smoking on January 1st (cold turkey) and joined Sparkpeople to log in my meals to keep an eye on what I eat. I just started walking on my treadmill. I feel a little overwhelmed:} Any words of encouragement would be greatly appreciated. This community seems so supportive and friendly. I'm glad I joined:) Penny
