Hey Geeks, Last weekend me and the girlfriend went up to my property up North for a weekend away that got shortened a bit. Saturday evening after celebrating a bit with a few adult beverages and a few cigars we hit the sack and a couple hours later I woke up unable to get any air into my lungs, after doing all I could I woke up the girlfriend and we ended up heading to the hospital where I ended up getting an ambulance ride to a better equipped hospital as I was having heart failure. 3 days later they let me head for home, I got lucky to come out of it above the ground and with zero heart damage. A pretty good wake up call for me that I may need to change my ways a bit. I emptied my kitchen cupboards from any prepackaged foods and have reduced my sodium intake by about 1000% from what I was eating and am on the right track. Cutting back to a few cigars a week instead of a few a day and looking to lose about 75 lbs. After going thru a divorce of just shy of 30 years and a lot of stress at work lately my blood pressure had gone out of control and my regular doc wasn't able to reel it in in time as that had a big part of the heart failure, plenty of things worth changing some bad habits to hang around for a bit longer. Just thought I would toss out an update on whats happening in my life.

WOW Kent that is scary stuff, obviously glad to hear you came out of it ok with a very serious warning. I was pushing 290lbs eating like crap. I’ve lost 27lbs in the last 2 months just by changing my diet and I really feel great. We actually ate a little heavy last night and we felt like garbage afterwards. I use an app on my phone called My Fitness Pal, you enter your weight and your goal weight and it tells you how many calories per day you can have to hit that goal. It’s baducally a digitize food diary. It also shows you sodium, carbohydrates, sugar, etc so you can track everything. It’s no real secret as to what is healthy, although some things you will notice are surprisingly unhealthy.

Glad you are ok. High blood pressure is a silent killer. I have hb and I reduce my salt and take some light meds to help keep it down. Exercise is key too.
