Post Weight loss and heart issues.
Since my event in May 2016 I stopped going to the gym, I would add on the advice of the cardiac nurse. I am now 2 stone overweight. Most of it around my middle, and I am only 5ft 2in, and I have a small frame.

Can anyone tell me if they have been successful in losing weight. It is quite a lot, at least to me.

I am feeling better than I did before the attack, but of course I do not think this fat around my waist is a good thing. Thanks, Poppy.

I would talk to your cardiologist. I am sure that there are several things you could be doing to help with the weight issues. Usually the cardiac rehab team will place you on a set of exercises for you. I also saw a dietitian during my rehab. She didn't say what I wanted but did know what I needed (or did not need).

I lost most of the weight that was suggested by the doctors.

Good luck

Are you sure the nurse didn't mean stop for a period of time? To just eat healthy and walk regularly should cause weight loss. So many look for fast results and get discouraged then give up. Think long term.
