Apr 20, 2010The journey ahead is going to be a battle because I have a lot of obstacles in my path...But you know what, this is it...I am going for the Gold on this one. I will win this battle with my weight once and for all.
For the last 10 years I have done nothing but worry about taking care of everybody but myself and you know where it got me...A huge mess. Here I am morbidly Obese and no one to blame but myself because I just let myself go especially in the last 2 years.
I lost my youngest son Johnny who was 25 in February 2008. I lost my younger brother John 47 in March 2008 a month later and it has been downhill until February of this year when I got so sick and did not realize that with all the weight I had put on, I had to really do something. I know if I don't change things now, I won't be around to change them in the future.
I went to the Dr. and my weight had climbed from 234 in 2007 to 285 in February 2010. I tested positive for Type 2 diabetes. I knew now it was serious. Don't ask me why because I can only say that the pain from losing my son was so immense...I just gave up.
