Lately I have been hearing about so many people dying of massive heart attacks and this scared me. Many of these people were younger than I am now. I know I have high blood pressure and I take meds for it I am hoping once I lose the weight I won't have to take the meds anymore. My best friend of 36 years died to a massive heart attack and she wasn't on any meds at all. For a while I wondered why her, why am I still here with all the health issues I have and she didn't have any. Now I know that she did have health issues but she never took care of herself. She would constantly call me and ask about my health but in the 36 years I knew her I never once heard her say I am going to the doctor.
Today, I am happy to be alive and done with battling with my weight. I am here for a reason and it is time I took better care of me than everyone else. I need to be the best I can be in all areas of my life. I am not just trying to improve my health, but my career and love life as well. As a woman we are always so concerned with others and neglect ourselves, but if we don't take better care of ourselves we won't be here to take care of those we love.
I am so done with hiding behind the weight and health problems. I feel like a flower about to bloom. It may be coming at a late point in my life but I am grateful it came at all.
