Cece's before and still going :D
« on: July 24, 2016, 08:19:13 PM »
So this is like long overdue. Finally! Warning: insanely long read
I've always been overweight ever since I got to know myself lol so it never bothered me and I managed fine with it and took the occasional disturbances it came with as normal not until March 2013 when I got diagnosed with severe hypertension and I had barely turned 19 a few days before. I cried that I was going to die young and my doctor told me that I was lucky enough not to have had a stroke maybe cos I was young and that I'd have to deal with it with drugs for life adding that the drugs' side effects were bound to show up within some 30,40yrs if I got lucky. Thankfully, a nutritionist was also with the doctors on ward rounds and after they left she consoled and assured me that it was reversible then she placed me on HER diet, a very restrictive one. I was 93 at that time and a week later 94. Then I knew I had to do something and started researching and bumped into this wonderful forum. I started taking things slow, and with the advice and encouragement of awlf members I stand today, for the first time in my life at a normal weight. I went off bp meds six months after diagnosis and it has been perfect ever since. I have fallen off track severally, but I have thankfully not gone back to where I'm coming from. My appreciation goes to God of course, Dr. Trim ;( Phat Mzbells, rukevwe, esthy, brownshuga, WLE ma'am, all yea old and new members tag yourselves please. Most of them are active on Ig and I still follow follow them. Not yet at goal weight but posting for more motivation for myself and y'all. This whole process has also been a huge influencer of my current career path. Hopefully someday african nutrition would be where it's meant to - - - Attached pictures are 87 and 65.3----was particularly photophobic at higher weights lol
