In three years, I went from 150 pounds to 265 lbs. I wasn’t happy with myself at all. I began to use food to feel comfortable. It didn’t matter if I was hungry or not. I ate it along with soda. Then, I went for my physical and my hemoglobin A1C was almost 10.0. I was diagnosed with Diabetes and Hypertension both of which run high in my family. I am grateful just to be taking oral medication instead of insulin. This is the biggest as far as weight that I have ever been. It’s completely uncomfortable. I joined a weight loss program and continue to exercise.
