I am one of those deceptively heavy women. Since infancy I was always heavier than i actually look. So instead of the numbers on the scale I focused on over all health and wellness. But 3 babies in three years, a divorce, a lay off and a little bit of depression distracted me from taking care of me.
Needless to say I found myself not only unhappy but unhealthy. Tipping the scales at 313 I decided I was done ignoring the problem and got active. 23 pounds later I am just so gratefull to be under 300, my blood pressure almost back to normal and the blood sugar issues disappearing. It is only the beginning but making small changes i can live with has been a life saver, literally.
