Thanks Mozzy, akelly728 and time2lose for the welcome posts. I'll be posting. Not necessarily daily but a few times a week.
BTW, I weighed myself today and I'm 266.5 lbs. I was sick last week, so I think that's where the weight loss came in. LOL. Illness is good for something.
I'm going to see my cardiologist this month (or whenever the earliest appointment is) and then I can get some exercise done, for now I'm not exercising.
I have always been partially anemic, but in November 2013, I hit "fully anemic". I'm not exerting myself until I'm medically cleared to do so. I've been eating better and taking it easy and my blood count has already improved. I'm still walking, but slowly. No exertion until my doctor tells me what my target heart rate (range?) should be. I also need to purchase a heart monitor. Since I was already going shopping for a new workout outfit this weekend. I'll simply add "heart monitor" to my shopping list.
Funny thing. This morning at the gym I weighed myself wrapped in a "new" towel. I bought the thing a good year ago, but hadn't used it yet. I love it! It covers everything and then some. Not bad for a $5 clearance item. I'm using the towel now, so that my weigh-ins are consistent. I'll always have my towel, since I love the wet area at the gym. In case anyone is wondering, I bought my towel at Wal-mart and it is made by "Better Homes and Gardens".
