Hello again; Its no secret that I believe my personal transformation started by getting in better physical health. First, I was convinced to have a sleep study. I was diagnosed with sleep apnea and fitted with a CPAP machine. Later, I was persuaded to consider having gastric surgery. I listened to the information and decided to go ahead with it after finding out that it wasn’t the answer just a tool to help with long term weight loss. I had a successful procedure. Following that up with eating healthier and daily exercise I am now at my ideal weight of 255 pounds for a 6 ft. 4 man with a solid build. As I have gotten healthier I have come to have more energy, creativity, and passion. So, I want to share some of my recent experiences in hopes of encouraging you to also make your health a priority.
Let’s start with a few questions. When was the last time you saw a doctor? Was it in his or her office, or was it at an emergency room? Did you go to have a regular check up or where you there for some sort of condition?
Do you have a regular primary care physician? Do you know them by name? When was the last time you visited them? And when you go do you have a conversation or just listen to their advice and get out of there?
I know going to the doctor is not much fun. I hear it is even less fun for women. And for those who get told this often, going there only to hear you need to quit smoking, drink less, or lose weight isn’t fun either. I used to be that guy. I would go to my doctor every six months but only because I had prescriptions that needed to be approved by a physician before they could be refilled. I would promise to try harder, and she would tell me I better. 🙂
