Having to start slow, but will get there. 9/7/08 - Beginning to pick up a little speed. Beginning to get off my oxygen, have now made two trips out & left oxygen in the car. Have gone a whole week without it in the house. Being able to do a little more exercise and I am excited that I will be able to have a better quality of life. The day I can go and walk on the beach for 1/2 hour all the Spark People will hear me. April 6 Update. Did not manage 1/2 hour, but did walk a 1/4 mile on the beach today without oxygen!! WOOHOO!!!
Update 2011
Have been able to only use oxygen at the gym this year. Do not have to be on it 24/7 anymore - FREEDOM! I am getting stronger every day, but unfortunely the body continues to age - 71 next week. Not complaining, just very grateful to God for the lifestyle improvement. Back at work, selling and managing real estate plus several home businesses.
4/20/13 - Not using oxygen at gym and was able to pedal the incumbent bike for 35 minutes last week. What a difference! Still have not been able to do the 30 minutes on the beach, but hope before this year is up that will be accomplished.

My Goals:
Regain my health, body size,and activity level. Last year I had a Mitral Valve Replacement and it has been slow going to get back in condition. Have been on oxygen 24/7 for three years and I would love to get rid of that leash.

My Program:
Got out the Vit-a-mix with all the green drinks. Just trying to give my body the best nutrition. Was trying everything, my cousin sent me some liquid vitamins called VEMMA and after 3 weeks, I was able to put down the oxygen while at home and had energy to try & exercise. Use the Chi machine and have had cranial-sacrial work plus a lot of muscle massage. I tease them I will get back, even if it takes me till I am 90.

Personal Information:
My name is Pat, I have 2 grown childdren and 3 lovely grandchildren. Have been a real estate broker for over 40 years and still work on referral only. Love the beach and the water. Look forward to being able to walk the beaches again. Love to Laugh
