Hi, I joined SparkPeople in 2011 on the advice of a friend after frustration from changes to another weight loss program. I have lost 115 so far between two programs. I would like to shed another 40 lbs. My long term goal is a lifestyle change that includes fitness and proper diet that align with my goals of healthy living after having an MI and now an Aortic Aneurysm that is being watched closely by two Cardiologists.
