I Have Always Had Issues With Weight

I have always had issues with weight. It was a constant rollercoaster until about 2012 where I finally leveled out to a comfortable spot. Then in 2015, I had my beautiful son. I thought that I would be able to lose the baby weight, but instead I just ballooned. In being conscious of making sure that my son would be provided for if something were to happen to one of us, my husband and I signed up for life insurance. The physical exam and labs were eye-opening!!! Not only was I obese at 220lbs, I had high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and high blood sugar. My heart dropped as this means I have increased risk of heart disease and diabetes. That is when I decided to take control of my health. My motivation was and is my son. I want to be able to keep up with him and experience life with him for as long as I can. So far, I have lost nearly 70 pounds. I feel lighter, healthier, and now I work hard to play hard. A new lease on life is an understatement. I can enjoy life with my little heartbeat - my son and it feels amazing. Choose Well is helping me stay on track and keep the weight off. The motivation and healthy competition drives me to continue to be mindful and encouraging to others as well!!
