    Hi

    as if I needed another reality check, but I got one yesterday...

    calculated my 'heart age' in comparison to my birth age, with flora heart age calculator online, and am horrified to discover my heart age is 15 years older!!!! :eek: than my actual age :eek:

    OMG..this weight has GOT to go, and the frame of mind I am in...it will!

    The alarm bells are ringing loudly now.

    I got 28 and I'm 24, I expected worse to be honest! The good thing is that no matter what that age is, we're all doing something about it now.

    My age is now 24, same as I am. Have you looked at what it is that makes your heart ages so high? I'm obviously very overweight but doesn't seem to be so bad for me. But then I don't smoke, so I guess that's a big part of it. I also have normal cholesterol and blood pressure. To be honest, I expected a far worse result but even if my heart is ok, I know I'm putting a lot of extra demands and pressure on all of my organs so the weight needs to come off!

    Hi Caroline

    its weight with me!!!!..no surprise there :rolleyes: I'm a non smoker with 'acceptable' but could be better BP, so weight and age are the big factors with me...the weight has got to GO, unfortunatly the age I can't change or alter :sigh: :D....but my heart age I can!

    I'm really rather pleased, my heart age is 39 & I'm actually 38. Not bad for an obese woman who was morbidly obese a few weeks ago!
