If you had told me last christmas I would loose nearly 3 stone in 10 months I would have told you to take more water with your drink, being nearly 19.5 stone not only slows you down but does terrible damage to your self esteem who wants ot be fat who wants help fastening your belt because you cannot see your waist or your shoes talking about shoes I could not even fasten my laces on my own, when your 4 year old grand daughter tells you, you look like humpy dumpty you know all is not right, I have stuggled for years with no success diet clubs calorie controlled even hynotherapy but all failed after a while you give and convince yourself being overweight well fat is good for you then you do not have to worry your socks off, but let's be honest eating for eating sake is a downhill road, then my doctor sent me to see a diabetes specialist although I was not happy being passed on again like a sack of coal it has proved to be a blessing in disguise the new doctor did not pull any punches he told me the way I was going on I would be dead in a few years time and the massive heart attack was a warning and if I did not get the diabetes under control some of my organs would start to shut down.
After a frank talk like that only a fool would say I am happy being overweight, he suggested I try Victoza as I fast becoming insulin intollerent and so after christmas I started on the new drug not being one to like sticking needles in myself I thought 3 needles a day would be too much but when your life depends on it you soon forget being squimish about needles In June I had dropped to 114 kilos and last week when the nurse weighed me I was down to 105 kilos it was one of those moments Lots, when I had a smile on my face.
So is Victoza good for you in my case it has become a life saver I no longer crave for cream cakes eat all day long and rarely look in the mirror it has changed my life completely,ok I have to take a new drug for my depression but I do not think victoza has anything to do with that I have always been mindful and a worrier and over the years a terrible person to live with, I hope God was busy loking the other way at those times,getting self confidence back is the best medicine anyone can take it takes time and I still have a mountan to climb but being 3 stone lighter means I do not have to stop so many times being out of breath as I did before.
as for side affects yes there have been a few but I can now see my feet and my waist so I can fasten my belt on my own so any side affects are worth puting up with they soon go and your really start feeling the benefits so 3 cheers for VICTOZA and a little one for myself.
It was my intention not to offend any over weight folks out there some have medical conditions that cause the weight problem this was about me and my uphill struggle.
