Kind of a different spin on my weight loss success story...
Over a year ago, I decided to become healthier. I had been disagnosed with severe asthma, and knew I needed to make some changes to improve my breathing and overall health in other areas, too. This year, for the first time in my life, I have gone to the doctor and not heard "you should lose weight". I feel I am also finally able to get real answers, instead of doctors just telling me it is because of my weight, or writing my symptoms off and not taking me seriously.
For example, now I know I have endometriosis, instead of just 'heavy periods and bad cramps', as the doctors have always said. And, of course "if you lose weight, it will help" - liars! The symptoms are as bad as ever. It just helped me be taken seriously.
I have lost over 60lbs, but no longer feel I am living in the darkness about my pain!
Has anyone else experienced anything like this with your weight loss?
