I've been obese or overweight my whole life. As a nursing student, I've seen people--people not even out of middle age--who had let their weight get out of control, who could not even wipe themselves, let alone get out of bed to use the bathroom.
I don't want diabetes or arteries clogged with fat or pain from carrying around all this weight. I don't want to let my (lack of) health stop me from doing anything.
So, I'm choosing something better for myself.
(I'm not sure why my Before/After Pic Collection link isn't working--I'll keep fiddling with it! There are so many inspiring people with fantastic progress!)
