I have been battling weight since I was a child. I grew up with hearty meat, potato and gravy meals and was expected to always clean my plate. I knew that I had been gaining weight over the years and frankly had stopped trying to lose. I felt heavier than I’d ever been, when I went to see the doctor for a cough. I was not prepared for what I saw when the nurse had me step on the scale. I was shocked, scared, and ashamed. I realized, right then, if I did not make my own decision to lose weight now, I feared it was only a matter of time before my doctor would tell me I had to in order to save my health and my life. That night I cried and prayed. My weight was out of control and I needed help. As I prayed the answer came to me to try Doctor Angie. Two days later I had my first appointment.
At that visit I weighed 403lbs. pounds. My goal was to lose 249+ pounds. Wow! It seemed unattainable at first. Could I really do that? Not on my own I decided.
I now had the help and support of Doctor Angie. Having someone in my corner to hold me accountable gave me the hope that I could do it. I also had my faith to help me too.
