I have been overweight my entire life. As a child in school I would hear things such as Mattie fatty ate a chicken patty... or Mattie fatty 2x4 can't fit through the kitchen door. Being an adult didn't change things, the names still came, the looks, the sly remarks. What these people didn't realize was the more they called me names the more it turned me to food.
I never allowed my weight to stop me from doing what I want too, but as I've gotten older and gained more weight it became harder for me to do the things I enjoyed.
I have had a lot of issues with my legs to the point I couldn't walk without pain. I would lose my balance and fall into things a lot. I also have 2 bulging discs in my back, and arthritis in back and knees.
January 4, 2017 I had an appointment with my family dr. I had what has become a life changing melt down. I had gained more weight, I was depressed over that as well because I couldn't do the things I wanted to do. I was crying the whole time While telling her these things. When I got home I would continue to cry. I just wanted to be able to move pain free.
A few days later one of my friends on Facebook shared Jared's video of how he lost over 300 pounds. As I watched I began to cry, again. I began to research DDPY, to see for myself. (There's always those stories around that are just scams for money). What I found while looking on YouTube was testimony after testimony of normal people saying how DDPYOGA has changed their life. Then I got to watch "The Resurrection of Jake the Snake" on Netflix and I knew then, that it was the real deal.
I've never told anyone my weight before because I've always been embarrassed by it. I even tell my husband if he knew what I weighed he wouldn't love me (but I know that's not the truth), I started this journey on January 11, 2017. I just started by cutting sodas and sweets out of my diet. I started counting calories and I stick to it. I've become obsessed with calorie counting. I didn't get my dvd's until February 3rd, so until they came I found some DDPY on YouTube and I did these.
My goal is to get at 250 pounds. I'd be satisfied there. I tell people I've never been skinny so I don't expect to be skinny, I just want to be able to enjoy my grandchildren and go on walks with my husband. But most important I want to walk without pain. I am pleased to say that I have lost 14 pounds and 15 inches combined.
The first thing I noticed after starting was that the limp I had for sometime, was gone. I'm still not able to do all the positions but I do follow DDP's advice and I make it my own. I modify as much as I can. Since beginning I can now touch my toes. I bought new clothes the other day, without thinking I got the same size I've worn for years, I had to return them! They were to big. At 47 years old I've finally realized I have to own my life.
