They Said It Couldn't Be Done
Tuesday, August 05, 2014
They said it couldn't be done. That I was too old, too overweight, and diabetic. That the only way I would lose weight was to get Gastric Bypass surgery. I told them they were wrong - all those health professionals. Has it taken a long time? Yes it has. Am I at my goal? No. But I am getting there and I am doing it my way - and I feel good.
7 years ago I was at my highest weight ever. How I got that heavy probably can only be rehashed in therapy. I was extremely unhappy with my looks, I was sick all the time, I had no energy, and was sleeping poorly. I started slowly, changed one thing, then another. Adjusted here and there and though not perfect I have lost 54 pounds. I have stalled out several times but I have never regained any of it. Now after being stagnant for a few years I am on the decline again.
Don't let anyone ever tell you that it can't be done.
