Life is pretty great!
I’ve been overweight my entire life. Always the heaviest of my friends, the fattest in my class in school, the last one picked for the team sports and so on. Even so I usually ran circles around my much skinner friends. So, I just figured I was one of those unlucky people who would never be thin. I told myself that as long as I had energy and felt good, it didn’t matter how much I weighed or what size I wore. And that had always been true. Until it wasn’t.
I was the heaviest I’d ever been, topping out at over 300 pounds. I didn’t have any energy. I didn’t feel good about my life or myself. I sat at work all day and then came home to do nothing but sit there as well. This was no way to live.
The turning point came when I decided to take the stairs to an appointment I had on the third floor of an office building. Not only did it take FOREVER to get to the top of those three flights, but by the time I did I thought I was going to die.
The next day, I started looking into different diet plans online. One of my coworkers told me about Nuviva and how she’d lost over 40 pounds in just two months, so I made an appointment. During the initial consultation, I didn’t have much hope for success. When asked how much I wanted to lose, it took me a moment to answer. Was this a trick question? If I said over one hundred, would I get laughed right out of the door? So I demurred from the answer I wanted to give and shrugged it off with a coy ‘fifty pounds would be nice.”
Less than a year later, I am down 130 pounds. My starting weight was 310.6 and I am down to 181.2 (I still have about 10 pounds to lose). I went from a size 26 (borderline 28) to a 10! But most importantly, I have energy…oodles and oodles of it. And, yes, I am once again running circles around my friends, so life is pretty great!
