What a great question! I was weighing in at anywhere from 278 to my "down weight" of 273. I was tired and had gout attacks every other month that were keeping me from being very mobile. We had no insurance and I pretty much had no hope.
4 months ago I had my worst best day of my life. I was dx'd with diabetes, hypertension (219/120 bp
) and of course gout. I started medication and started walking to the end of the street and back. Since then I've increased my walk to 5+ miles a day and my weight this morning was 227.6. I'm following a low carb diet, taking meds and plowing ahead.
