We all know what happened on September 11, 2001 ,it remains as a tragic memory in our lives , but few know what really happened to the survivors. I am one of them , in 2001 I had to undergo surgery on my right leg and pelvis, after this procedure doctors disabled me for life, or at least that is what i thought.
The days and months passed, and due to the inability i had gained 100lb staying at 296lb, this made my situation worse by being immobile in bed. Finally after being without mobility in my legs and using wheelchairs and crutches for 3 years, I was able to walk but i was stuck with having trouble sleeping and pain in both legs. On many occasions I considered undergoing the bypass surgery but I decided not to.
In 2004 with serious obesity problems, taking many pills for pain , pressure , cholesterol etc. I came to a point where I started to rely on these drugs. I fell into depression and unfortunately I did not see the meaning of life and solution to my problems, I was alone and disoriented, but one day I stopped feeling this way and I felt different like I had another opportunity to make the necessary changes and move on. In 2012 my big concern was being overweight and my health problems, I started only with a goal to lose 50lb. I knew this would require good nutrition , diet and exercise. I started to notice many positive changes but it was not easy , but the desire to change inspired me to keep going.
In 2013 ending the year weighing 170lb , this was extremely important to me and I realized that anything is possible , anything you set your mind to you can achieve with a good positive attitude and no fear of change . Currently I continue with my process of physical and mental transformation , I do not take any kind of medications. I'm healthier than ever and change is in every aspect of my life.
I share this experience with you and the whole process that led to my change and transformation, we can all fight for everything we want to change and it starts with the desire to do so, do not waste time .
Anything you want is possible, there is no limitation that prevents us from doing so just do it .
