Ahoy!

My husband and I have swashed our buckles a few times at the Portland Pirate Festival, and my pirate name is Iron Bess.

A few years ago, on the day before my birthday, I was diagnosed with idiopathic (cause unknown) dilated cardiomyopathy (heart muscle disease). I get tired easily, have low exercise tolerance, and have gained weight. Medication and a pacemaker with implanted defibrillator stabilized my condition, but I need to banish 45 lbs!

great to hear from you. I fell off the wagon. Tore ligament in knee and couldn't effectively exercise, lost touch with people, lost interest, was depressed and quit logging and gained back all worked so hard for last year to lose. Terrible pain and depression. Pain pretty much gone now thanks to laser treatments. Feeling much better, starting to log again and to be more careful - and then this weekend my CHF alarm in my pacemaker went off. Couldn't log while away this weekend but back at it tomorrow hopefully.
