My dad died from a heart attack at 42 and I was heading for a similar fate. Worked for 2 years to get fit and lost all the weight, but I cound't keep the weight off. For an additional 2 years I stumbled, but never got my feet under me.
In April in 2018 I had a stroke at 48 years old. I simply had to get healthier.
I'm less confident, more scared about ever leading the health life I want to live. I have stumbled so many times.
