My name is Jeanne. I am a 50 years old and from Massachusetts.
I lost 50 lbs and then I regained 60. I hated myself for a long time.
I just could not find the energy to try again.. I was too tired. Then I had a sleep study. I got a CPAP machine and something weird happened... I wasn't tired. I wasn't craving sweets all the time.
My respiratory therapist told me that there is a direct correlation between obesity and sleep apnea. That the body craves sugar for the energy, crashes and repeat.
I do not want diabetes. My brother has it. I do not want to be diagnosed. I watched a couple of mind changing Netflix documentaries. FED UP and SUGAR COATED. I was ready for a change.
7 months have passed and I have lost 50 lbs. I still have 50 lbs to go but I am ok with that. It is a journey.
Lessons learned:
1. Do not call yourself a name you would not want to hear a loved one call themself.
2. Tracking is necessary paperwork to succeed!
