I was wondering if there were others here that have heart by-pass surgery.. and if you have trouble losing weight and what you are doing to keep healthy.

I had a quad by-pass and lost some heart function... Anyone else out there with heart issues?

Hi Cat,

Check out the CHIP... Cardiac Health Improvement Program in my blog. It is especially for people such as yourself. We have a gentlemen in our class who has just had by pass surgery and is doing great! Hope you are doing better. :) Congrats on your 10lbs loss!

Thanks... I had my by-pass a little over 9 years ago.. I found that if I just keep moving and stay away from some of those meals at church, I can keep my weight managable.. but this fall, ugh... too many functions and too many fantastic cooks.... I spiraled totally out of control...

I don't think we have any of those meetings anywhere near us. We live in the deep deep woods of Tennessee... but I will continue in my researching..
