Ugh, I can definitely sympathize. Someone my age/height/weight/etc should have a workout heart rate in the 170s. Mine goes up to 200 after just 2 minutes of a light jog at 5mph!  Mine is idiopathic, there’s no known cause for it, it just happens. How quickly does your HR get up to 200+ when you work out? What activities are you doing?

Have you seen a cardiologist just to make sure everything is working as it should? Mine made me wear a heart monitior for 24 hours, and I think that’s pretty standard. There could be some medication to help stabilize your heart or the doctor might have some suggestions. Stationary bikes are good low-impact cardio and that’s what the doctor had me do. He also suggested weight lifting which has VASTLY improved my ability to exercise longer at a more normal heart rate.

Start slow. I’m a healthy weight, but I do have tachycardia from being a childhood bulimic. Are you taking meds for it? That definitely keeps mine in check.

Pilates is great. Hot yoga is amazing for weight loss, it burns lots of calories. Just make sure to stay hydrated. Another start could be taking long walks with your SO, friend, dog- whatever. Long walks are great for building up some strength and weight loss. Paired with a healthy diet, walking is great! Also carry a heartbeat monitor thing (conveniently cannot remember the name..)
