It is time.

It is time to make the change. December 2015 was one of the worst months of my life, constantly being in the hospital for the chemo treatments.

I can't do anything about the cancer, but I can do something about the diabetes. That is in my control.

It is time for the diabetes to go. It is time for the hepatic steatosis, the fatty liver to go. The way to do that is removing the weight, controlling what I eat and exercising. Just the exercise alone will cause ...
It is time to make the change. December 2015 was one of the worst months of my life, constantly being in the hospital for the chemo treatments.

I can't do anything about the cancer, but I can do something about the diabetes. That is in my control.

It is time for the diabetes to go. It is time for the hepatic steatosis, the fatty liver to go. The way to do that is removing the weight, controlling what I eat and exercising. Just the exercise alone will cause positive metabolic changes to occur throughout my body.

I feel fortunate to have seen and experienced the future I am heading to. Much like Ebenezer Scrooge. It is horrible, horrible, horrible, horrible. Hospital beds, multiple IV sticks, bruises all over my arms, 15 different medications, reactions, reactions to reactions, insulin shots three times a day. ER visits in the middle of the night, scans, tests, unable to get out of bed.

I have the ability to change this future. I do not need the horrible complications of diabetes in my future on top, underneath, front and behind cancer. And I now know how horrible they really are. Blindness, heart disease, cardiomyopathy, kidney disease, neuropathy, amputation, multiple daily insulin shots, Beta cells shot to hell and gone forever.

Up until now, yes I was overweight, clinically obese, BMI 35.1
But it made no difference really in my day to day life. I was healthy, no issues. Yes, I was out of shape, but so what. It didn't affect me really in any meaningful way. Until now.

Now it is payback time. Payback for decades of poor lifestyle. Payback for decades of poor eating habits.

Payback's a bitch.

"Spirit, take me away from here.
Take me home. I can take no more.
Leave me! Take me back! Haunt me no longer!"

I am back home. I am up. I am recovering for now, slowly.

And it's not too late. I still have time.

Time to make the change.
