I have walked hand in hand with obesity for so long that I had come to believe it was normal. I remember sayings like, "that boys to skinny he needs eat more, or you better eat that food, don’t you know there are starving kids in Africa". Oh and my favorite he’s not fat he’s just big boned. This was the type of mental programming that fooled me into believing that being overweight was actually good for you. All of the adults in my family were big and it was the same with most of my friends. So as I became an adult and ballooned to a whopping 320lbs I thought nothing of it. Until it almost killed me.
My journey into organics started three years ago when I was diagnosed with diabetes. One day I’m at work the next day I’m in the hospital which for the next month became my home. The doctors said if I didn’t make some major life changes, I could suffer vision loss and possibly kidney failure in as little as 10 years. As if that wasn’t bad enough, I also ran the risk of limb amputation. In spite of all that, I think the greatest challenge for me was when they said I would be stabbing myself with a needle every day for the rest of my life.
When faced with that outlook, I resolved to do whatever it took to get off insulin and beat this disease. And this quest launched my journey with Organic food and healthy living. I was diagnosed at 325lbs and have dropped over 75lbs I was prescribed 60units of insulin a day and have currently no need to take insulin. This personal quest has led to dramatic changes in my own life & health. These same changes have made me understand that the current situation with Obesity in America is literally killing us. Which is why I share this message and which is why it is important that you listen. Unsupersize Now offers real solutions to our real life epidemic coming from a person that has followed this to personal success and is still working the program.
I’ve Done it!!! I’m Doing it!!!
