When I was 25 I decided to reclaim my life. I left an abusive relationship and worked very hard on my physical and mental health. With diet and exercise, I went from 240 pounds to 180 pounds in about 5 months.
I thought losing weight would make me feel better, but as soon as I dropped weight I began to have debilitating pain. It got so bad I could no longer walk. Not only was it painful, I literally couldn’t move my leg. There were days I couldn’t get out of bed.
