In the middle of 2015 my doctor informed me that I was too fat and then this lovely rather direct Asian doctor then said “just because you’re tall don’t think you’re not fat-you’re fat”. He then said that if I didn’t address my weight issue and my diabetes two issue that it would be “all over” as I would become insulin dependent.
I went to a nutritionist organisation and met a rather stunning lady by the name of Milly. It didn’t take me long to realise that this lady was one serious little nutritionist and that I, as her new pupil would have to listen up, otherwise I wouldn’t be welcome in her “classroom”. I focused on what Milly was teaching me and tried as hard as I could to change my lifestyle.
I wasn’t scared of Milly but I must say that I had a healthy respect for her, however I got really excited when I started to feel better and shed a few kilos. I became like a reformed smoker and would watch other people in restaurants eating all the wrong things and then giggle to myself and say “I used to eat that crap”. My weight loss got to about 15 kilos and I started wearing my bonds undies again and felt like I was 34 instead of 64. My diabetes is all under control, my little doctor mate says it’s a miracle and yes it’s all good. I am now going to the gym four mornings a week and to be honest I feel the best I’ve ever felt in my life.Rod R
