My Journey to Better Health Began 3 Months Ago Today – How Far Have I Come? [VIDEO]

Three months ago today I began the ‘Summer of Me’. I was determined that I was going to do every thing I could do to get healthy this summer and finally take care of me. I enlisted the help of Benchmark Medical Group in Windsor and it was the best decision I have ever made in my life. I have never felt better or had more energy in my adult life.

I have now been off insulin for 3 months and used to use it up to 5 or 6 times a day. My blood sugar readings are spot on, my blood pressure is awesome and I have had to reset my CPAP machine to a much lower setting and hope to perhaps be off of that one day as well. I have seen my cardiologist and my sleep specialist and both are knocked out by what I have done. I have to say I am very proud of myself as well. I never dreamed I could do this.

I have now lost nearly 90 lbs since I started to try to do this on my own in March and nearly 70 since starting with Benchmark 3 months ago. That is just mind blowing to me. I have had a goal of losing 100 lbs by my birthday on September 13th but that may be a bit too adventurous of a goal. I started this journey at 333 lbs and am now stuck between 243-250 lbs for the last 3 weeks. I have hit a plateau that is proving to very tough to get through…but I will. I knew I would hit the wall at some point and I have. Every single pound is getting harder and harder to lose but I am up for the fight. If I hit my 100 by my birthday I will be ecstatic, if I don’t I will just hit it a little later than I had hoped for. No biggie. I will get there and further. I love feeling this good. Thanks Benchmark!
