Heart rate: Your heart rate is a bit low and you need to see your doctor or speak to her/him by phone for advice. 150 kilos are very high for anyone, particularly someone your age. Ask your doctor to refer you to a dietitian. You do need to lose weight but not rapidly - Half a pound or one pound weight loss a week is the safest for you.
