I know where I've been
Wednesday, July 28, 2010
I am getting ready to leave work and hit the gym. I am thinking back on where I was three short months ago... lethargic and unmotivated. I was at my highest weight of my life and not doing a thing about it. I had been scolded by the doctor to no avail. I was depressed and not really living. Then it happened- April - I got the news that I was diagnosed with diabetes 2. Holy crap- but the fear moved me to action SO quickly and here I am a few short months later. I lost more than 30 lbs before I found this sight and in those 60 days I have lost an additional 19 lbs and I have been here I have really changed my life. I know that I need to take Calcium and should watch my salt. I am going to the gym after work instead of heading home in a daze. I feel great and I feel like I am living for the first time in years. I have been going out with friends and having a blast. Every step I take forward reminds me that this is it- this is what we are here to do. We are here to love ourselves and each other. I can not even explain how it feels to have rediscovered my own life and all because of one man's vision that became this site... that's pretty cool. So thanks Chris Downie- You Rock!
