My motivation was simply to live better!
My life has changed drastically and it’s because of that surgery. My blood pressure is perfect. My blood work is great. I even ran a half-marathon recently. It gave me the chance to reclaim my life. But you can’t cheat it. You’ve got to become active. You need to be prepared for the lifestyle you’re going to lead.
One of the best decisions I've ever made!
My health grew worse. I developed diabetes, high-blood pressure and other health conditions prematurely. On top of that, I didn't change my eating habits. My doctor warned me that I might collapse without any notice and never see my kids again. That was my wake up call.
It helps me keep up with my granddaughters.
I lost more than 80 pounds and nothing fazes me anymore. I have lots of walking on my route, and I do walk on my treadmill. That’s the only exercise I do. I didn’t expect to get down to this weight and I lost it in my first six months! I feel better about myself. My knees, my ankles, nothing bothers me.
