I have always enjoyed drinking plenty of water. I have also stopped smoking about 4 years ago. What helped me to stop smoking was reading about the weekly, monthly, and yearly benefits of stopping; how the lungs are gradually improving as time passes by. It was helpful to see that if I could stop for just 2-3 weeks, that I would slowly be becoming healthier. This really kept me motivated. Whenever I felt like I just had to smoke, I would read this information from the American Cancer Society. I would like some similiar information about the benefits of losing weight on the heart and body. For example, how the heart may benefit in several weeks or months during the process of weight loss. I feel that if I have some information about the gradual benefits of weight loss on the heart, that this may keep me motivated to loss this excess weight. I am about 50 pounds over weight, and my father has had 4 heart attacks and has survived them. I am concerned about my family because diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease runs in the family. Thank you in advance for any information. Tania
