On September 15, 2014 I had a heart attack and then cardiac arrest. I have a stent in my LAD and so happy to be alive.
I was doing really good at eating well and working out but have fell off the wagon and need to get my act together again.
Look for a YouTube video by Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn if you want to get some encouragement for healthy diet information. Man talks down to some real basic science that most "salesman" types don't cover. Better facts help me make better judgements/decisions.
I know how you feel about falling off the wagon!
I have fallen too but the key is to not look down
but to get right back up!!! Everyone slips up!
What matters if you get up and keep working
toward your goals! I try to take it one day at
a time! Just add one good change at day or
even a week! Stay positive! You can do it!!!
AHA/ASA Sarah Ismail,
It is always best when you first realize what changes you need to make and then it's up and up from there!
