      Thanks! The electrical system of my heart is out of whack, which causes my blood pressure to drop and major dizziness and tachycardia if I do any kind of cardio or if I stand in one place for too long. Not life threatening, thank God, just a pain in the butt and lifestyle changes had to be made. My cardiac electrophysiologist told me I have to increase my salt intake (yuck--I've never been big on salt), and put me on pills to help retain water and salt...totally NOT what I want when I'm trying to fit into a wedding dress in 4 months! I've been on the pills for a month now, have been feeling better and haven't had any of the swelling side effects, so I think I'm going to be ok as far as that's concerned. I see my CEP again in June, so I'm going to talk to her about exercising when I see her then....maybe I'll be able to get back into it again slowly. Right now, I'll be sticking with yoga and the Wii Fit balance games to keep myself semi-active.

        We're been working out and eating well since January so I've lost 10 total!! but the 3 in the last week was from working out (running and doing stairs every night) - I also have a routine that I do each day (200 sit ups, 400 leg-ups, 200 crunches and 100 squats). I'm not sure what it was..BUT it was even through my Birthday weekend so I got lucky lol

          hunniebee- You're right- thank god that it's not life threatning! It sounds like you have it all under control and that it's not affecting too much which is great!

          Holy moly Sungoddess- I need to get on board with that daily workout routine! That's awesome

            Wow -- glad to hear it's not life threatening. Nice that you can do yoga at least. And if my doctor told me to eat more salt, I'd totally be hitting the sushi every day!

            And a double holy moly to sungoddess -- I thought I was good to do 100 crunches a few times a week, haha.

                  I'm in for the new season! I've lost 15 so far, with another 45 to go. The accountability will definitely have me ready for bridal gown shopping by summer's end.

                    Thanks for the kudos! :) It's definately been hard work - but finally paying off. I have some recipes and routines that I live by, but I still allow myself a treat once in awhile :)

                      I'm a physician and what you said does not make sense....are you seeing a CEP instead of a cardiologist? I STRONGLY suggest you see a licensed M.D. or D.O. as soon as possible. Salt tabs can be very dangerous to your health (they affect your brain in a big way) and in the hospital, we only put patients on salt tabs if they have bleeding in their brain (ex. after a stroke). I know this is beyond the scope of this forum, but if you really have a condition that causes your blood pressure to lower to the point of getting dizzy and passing out, you really need to see a real doctor. I can't think of many cardiac arrhythmias that would do this, and the ones that would (ex. Atrial fibrillation) do NOT require salt intake or salt tabs for treatment.

                      Sorry to butt in and I know you weren't asking for advice, but as a physician, what you said makes me concerned. You need a cardiologist or an internist. It seriously makes me cringe when people go to chiropractors or "naturopathic doctors" or other alternatives to real doctors when they have real issues like leukemia, cancer, or advanced cardiac disease, and unfortunately we see the consequences of this all the time in the ER, so I had to share my concerns.
