Your Fitness Stories; What I Did When A Doctor Told Me I Was Obese
8 years ago, at 30 years of age, I had the experience of hearing my doctor tell me I was obese; a term I had no idea until that moment, applied to the condition I was in. I knew I was hurting. I knew when I walked up a flight of stairs I was out of breath and sweating, I knew that I didn’t feel well most of the time, and I knew that I hated myself and my body. But, I didn’t know how out of control that I was until that moment, even though the scale read 320 pounds.
