During the year and a half, I have found that losing my weight has come with tremendous benefits. I can breathe easier, my blood pressure has gone down, my blood work has lowered, and overall, I am the picture of health. (Except the weight I have to continue to lose.)
Unfortunately, during this process I have found that losing the weight has helped me discover some underlying issues. I have had to discover that the fat surrounding my spine was holding my spine up. I have learned that because of my back injury, I can’t do everything I wanted to do. And now, I have to wait until I reach goal to even consider doing some of them.
But, I am not going to let me deter me. Because I will be able to go on those long hikes in the woods. I will be able to enjoy climbing a mountain. I will be able to go skiing. It’s all coming. I just have to wait.
