44 and heart surgery

Recommended Posts

At the age of 44 and passing the 200 pound mark I wanted to make some changes and get my health back under track.  As I last 10 pounds and made it to 199 pounds with a goal of 180 pounds I started having difficult breathing and just walking up my driveway or a set of stairs.  Also having heart palpitations and multiple test it was determined that my mital valve wasn't closing at all and would need open heart surgery for a repair.  This took place on 10/11/17 and now that I am in my second week of  cardio rehab I wanted to pick up the pace.  Today I just completed week one day one of C25k and don't plan on stopping till I'm at 180 pounds. Wish me luck, Eric
