Realizing I'm at risk

Thursday, January 21, 2016

Today as I was sitting in my math class I was thinking about all of the health issues that run in my family. I know that cancer runs in my family which is pretty much something I can't control and I also know that diabetes and heart issues also run in my family. This things I can avoid by losing weight. I haven't been to the doctors in years but I'm sure if I went he or she would tell me I'm at risk for one or the other or both. That scares me so much. This is just another reason as to why I need to lose this weight. I don't want these issues to be a burden on me. I'm going to make them a positive thing and use them as motivation to lose the weight.

    i know what you mean about being scared to see a doctor for fear of what he might tell you. I have done that but then realized that the issues I was worried about would not just go away on their own so I finally saw a doctor. Turns out I was borderline diabetic but I was able to reverse it just by eating healthy and exercising. So bite the bullet and see a doctor, you will be glad you did. emoticon
