Yo-Yo'd my whole life, even in the Army.

Here are my issues I am working on:

*Half a non-working thyroid after thyroidectomy - on meds
*Type 2 Diabetes - 0n meds not insulin
*fatty liver - on meds

Since March first I have been on a health and fitness journey. I have successfully cut my diabetes meds in half, with the goal of being off them completely by fall.

I eat super healthy, and well portioned. No processed foods or sugars that aren't fruit or other natural sources.

I work out 4 to 5 time a week to include 30 minutes of cardio and weight/strength training.

I started at it is August22, and I weigh 222lbs. My body is different, my cloths fit better, I am told I look better. I feel better...but no weight loss.

My body wants to be big? Ok, screw it, let it be big..but I will be big and healthy!
