Paying more attention
Tuesday, October 29, 2019
Ok so here goes...I've had trouble with my weight since middle school. So it's never been any front page news that I've suffered alot of ridicule and heart ache. Ive been told many many years ago that I have a fatty liver. I didnt pay much attention to it and continued eating anything and everything I wanted in any quantity I wanted. I never payed attention to what I was filling my body with.
2 years ago I was diagnosed with diverticulitis. I watched what I ate, staying away from the things I was told would cause another flare up. Recently September 26, I had another flare up. I became septic this time around so I was hospitalized. It might not have been much according to the dr but it was enough. During this time I learned that my liver and spleen were enlarged. This terrified me because I didnt know what to expect and I wasnt ready to die. It turns out I have a fatty liver and they said the scan showed nothing troublesome. I have to lose weight and this time for real. My health and my life is far more important than a special taste in my mouth that I should've been avoiding or limiting all along. This time its real...no more real than all those years ago, but an eye opener. No more excuses. I have to make it happen. God is with me so I know I'll reach my goal. 🙂🙂🙂
