Health knowledge made personal


West Burlington, Iowa
I'm 59 and I work as a medical transcriptionist at a hospital in Iowa.  I sit all day and then come home to sit some more.  I want to lose at least 70 lb.  I have one daughter and a granddaughter living with me as well as our two cats, Precious and Minnie Me.  I love to read.  I used to play a lot of sports, but now am too tired to do it.  I had a heart attack at age 56 and now have four stents.  I want to get healthy.

I want to applaud you for wanting to live a healthier life. Experiencing a heart attack is intense. I'm sure there are people in the heart community who can relate and members of the healthy living community who want to cheer you on. Have fun and enjoy all that Wellsphere and its Community has to offer you.
