I was a diabetic on the insulin pump 24 hours a day. My Hemoglobin AIC was 13. I struggled for 15 years as a type 2 diabetic. I took cholesterol medication, blood pressure meds and Synthroid. On March 7, 2011 I had Gastric Bypass surgery. Before leaving the hospital, my insulin was reduced to almost nothing. In 1 week, I was off the medication. 1 year later, my HAIC is 5. The only medication I take is Synthroid.
I lost my weight in 8 months after gastric bypass surgery. Sure in the beginning it seemed hard, but you adjust and know in the long run, you are making a lifestyle change that will give you a positive future. Exercising is a must, and every day. Eat only the foods that are healthy and beneficial to us. I can guarantee if you if you eat the wrong foods, or eat too fast, you will get sick. You need to schedule your meals because you are no longer hungry, or have cravings for food. This has totally changed my life. I walk, can you buy phentermine online 2012 run, jog, ride bikes and do Zumba: One of these every single day. I don’t look at it as a type of exercise, but as a way to show off my healthy body and reap the benefits of not huffing and puffing. I walk faster; when people who are with me say, “SLOW DOWN,” I love it!
Anyone thinking about weight loss surgery needs to know the operation does help, but you need to change your whole lifestyle and way you look at your life. Keeping with the diet, excuse me, healthy food plan and exercise, and load so water saved my life!!! I’M LIVING PROOF!
