EAT DRINK AND BE MERRY!!!!
On 4th August, 2012 I had a health check up which showed that I have high Uric Acid and Cholesterol and Fatty Liver. On 6th August, 2012 I visited my Family physician and I was advised to have a lifestyle change. He asked me to lose weight or with my BMI (40.1) i would have to undergo bariatric surgery. That was when the alarm rang. Didn't know where to start. With 131.5 Kilos at age 34, I didn't know what, how and where.. The only activity I did was playing golf, but that wasn’t enough.
Am a person who loves partying, drinking, smoke cigars, late nights, high calorie foods. I have so many social circles with whom I would go out for dinner and drinks. Enjoying my drinks and food. Twice or thrice a week I would be out for dinners. Sometimes families and sometimes only guys. And the worst was that I could never say no to anyone. I had a very unhealthy lifestyle that could take me to my peak of 131.5 kgs (which i was unaware, till I stood on the scale on 6th august, 2012 at my doc’s clinic. The last i had weighed was 122 kgs few months b4 that)
So I had to lose some serious weight.. hmmmm so where to start….. what to do….
So I came home and the first thing I did was Google, to calculate my BMI. Well i did that and yes my BMI was 40 and with that it read as follows:
BMI is over 40 (Obese Class 3 : Morbid Obesity)With a BMI of 40+ you have an extremely high risk of weight-related disease and premature death. Indeed, you may have already been suffering from a weight-related condition. For the sake of your health it is very important to see your doctor and get specialists help for your condition.
