My Journey- Young Adulthood

Sunday, April 30, 2017

In the several years that followed after my Mom passed many things went on. My body was so stressed from the loss of my Mom that I developed severe acne in several areas especially my chest and back and warts all over the bottom of both feet. The warts presented a problem because it got painful and made it hard to want to be active. It took a year for them to completely go away and yes that was with going to a podiatrist. By the time I reached 21 I gained enough weight that now I was affecting more areas of my health. Asthma got worse, diagnosed with high blood pressure and my weight was now in the 340-350 range. I did start seeing a nutritionist once again and learned a few knew things but they limited you to the number of appointments so eventually that ended. I did enough changes to get my blood pressure under control while taking medication but didn't do much on the weight loss. I just pretty much maintained my weight hovering around that 350 range. Then I start dating my husband and as we made plans for our future and became engaged I joined a P.E. class at school which also fulfilled a requirement and was trying to lose weight for our wedding. I don't remember if I lost any weight but at least I was active.

    I'm hovering around the 360 range which is my official heaviest. It feels terrible both mentally and physically. I just got a new job finally and I'm working with special needs children which requires a lot of energy and moving. I hope this helps me.
