I doubt there are ever guarantees at this point. The Endo team did say that may weight needs to be eliminated in order to eliminate the need for bp meds and other future complications to my health. I have never had hbp before I put on some extra pounds.
Bottom line. Its got to go. I am absolutely aware that weight and health are only one aspect of my life and is most ceratinly not a magic genie. I actually have a pretty fantastic life. However, the weight gain is an aspect that needs to be ameliorated. Its just plain not helathy to have a high BMI. I have never had issues with weight before, and I plan to fix it now. 21 years with Type 1, and I believe that I should have every opportunity to live a long wonderful life (without complications) and I am certainly not going to let anything as ridiculous as body fat get in my way. I’ve got a PhD to finish, a world to travel, people to help, and a wonderful husband who would be quite ticked if I checked out early b/c I decided that trying was just too hard.
