Back on track and feeling good!!!
I have been given a new lease on life by our Heavenly Father. The doctors told me just a few months ago that at the rate I was going, I would be dead within 5 years from a massive heart attack. I was wheelchair and bed bound, was eating whatever I felt like and extremely depressed with my situation. Then my PCP talked to me about going to a seminar just to see if it is something I would consider doing. I was ready for a change! I did not want to die! So, my wife and I went to the seminar. I have to tell you I was excited, but at the same time, I was very anxious and somewhat nervous. Listening to the first part of the presentation was just ok. It was someone who worked with the doctor and had the surgery and was successful. Then she introduced the surgeon. His presentation was full of excitement, positive thoughts and personal feeling! Afterwards, he came and spent one on one time with each of us. When he got to me, he was genuinely concerned about my health and said the above words about my prognosis. That changed my thinking and now my life for good! If someone had told me that after just short of six months I would be almost a hundred pounds lighter, walking again and full of more energy than I know what to do with, I would have laughed in their face. But, they would have been right! I am now just 3 pounds away from losing 100 pounds total in less than six months!!! I was taking 13 different medications including heart medications. Today, I am only taking 5 medications, 2 for sleep, 2 psych meds and an anti-inflammatory. All heart meds are gone!!! All stomach meds are gone!! And my psych meds have been cut in half!! I am a brand new person!! Here are comparison pictures:
Thank you all who have supported me through this change so far!!
