Health knowledge made personal
Birthday: February 27
Seemingly all my problems started during puberty. I've been overweight to some extent for most of my life, but the weight issue didn't get out of hand until the hormones started going nuts. The many joys of puberty included depression, weight gain, and the onset of PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome), which cases many health problems. Being obese and having PCOS puts me at an extremely high risk for diabetes, hyper tension, heart disease, infertility, kidney failure...the list goes on.
All of this adds up to a miserable life and an early grave. I have known this for years and I have worried and fretted about it for hours and days. In the recent past, the thought of living out the rest of my days in misery have been too much to handle. The emotional pain plus increasing physical pain make it clean that I have to change my life. Now. That is what brought me to Wellsphere.
I am starting with fairly simple goals: drinking 8 cups of water every day, all week long, and doing Yoga (by far my favorite "exercise") 20 minutes every day, all week long.
