I have been overweight my entire life. I just wanted to be able to play with my kids and enjoy my grandkids one day. I wanted to be present in their lives.
I was diagnosed as pre-diabetic and had high blood pressure. I was becoming miserable in my own skin. I decided it was time for a change. It was time to take my life back.
Weight loss surgery saved my life. I’m now living each day to the fullest and learning new things about myself daily. I eat to fuel my body now.
You have to want it. You have to change your life. I am not where I want to be just yet, but I am getting there.
