Your message is a perfect way to start. You’re definitely in the right group. Let me introduce you to a few Hearth Health members to start. Please meet @cynaburst@HeartPatches@wangs@Sensation@ronbee@billmichalski who know about the ups and downs of staying fit and heart healthy. There is definitely a mental component to it along with motivation and plain old determination. It can help to have a support group like this when the going gets tough, like the frustration of a darn machine telling you there’s no improvement when you’ve worked so hard. Of course, you know that you’re doing the right thing with exercise and diet, but it sure would help to have that confirmed by the echo.
