I have always struggled with a weight problem, and over the last 3 years it has really gotten out of hand. I ended up in the hospital in 2012 with cardiomyopathy ( its a heart muscle condition) and in order for me to recover from it, I had to do way less around the house, no lifting, no long walks nothing to strenuous. That really drove me nuts, just sitting around, So i would try to do stuff, carrying laundry bins up the stairs, or washing floors, but I would just get tired easy.
Depression set in, and eating to feel better just became second nature to me. So time went on, and I some how ended up all the medications for my heart condition and Thought I had a new chance again, I started out with walks, a better diet and a healthy life, but I was already to depressed with the ordeal of my heart, that I gave up so easy.
Nov 2013 - My heart is much better shape, but I am now a type 2 diabetic, ( shocked right? ) lol - Did not think so. I am on metformin, and told I can get off the meds, if I lose some weight, So here I am. I am going to take a BIG crack at it now, Since I saw my doctor in November I have lost.. When I saw him I was at 280 lbs and when I stepped on the scale 2 weeks ago i was 263lbs.
I figured if I lost that, with not changing to much, just doing more around the house, and cutting out some junk food.. I made these changes in a week.
- Eating breakfast
- no more reg/diet pop
- more water
I am now down to 231lbs.
I don't really see the loss, or feel it.
so I hope my scale is not lying :D
