One day in early or mid-2012, I received a call from my doctor’s office after a routine physical. The nurse mentioned that the doctor was concerned about my blood pressure, triglycerides, and cholesterol levels. The answer was to start taking prescription drugs to control these health factors.
I had been in denial about how being overweight was affecting me both mentally and physically. Defeat had been accepted. I resigned myself to a life of accepting whatever adverse health effects being overweight would bring. I was defeated.
This was a wake-up call for me.
