Your advice is exactly what I keep giving to my son and daughter-in-law. lol. "Lose some weight!!"
Easier said than done, I'm afraid. But I have lost a bit these past few weeks. Doc weighed me today. 11st 13lbs. So a 5 lb loss. And I am now on one Aspirin a day, and one Bisoprolal Frumarate, recommended by the Consultant to see if that helps me.
I gave up smoking in 1981.
I did start to gain weight around 8 years ago when I moved house to where I am now. I guess I felt then that it was time for me to slow down and enjoy the pleasures of retirement. (I had a long career in the Entertainment industry that had me travelling all over the country at times, and keeping crazy time schedules) Although I haven't sat around on my *@! doing nothing these past few years. I have a zest for knowledge and learning new skills so have filled my time with adult education classes, Art (I paint), jewellery making, computers, to mention but a few. Busy busy busy!
Anyway, I hope you're thoughts that my weight might be the problem is right, but I'll just have to wait and see.
It's been a pleasure chatting to you about my present health predicament. Thanks for that.
