What the scale didn’t tell me
One woman’s surprising results
I was surprised to discover that my results were not good. Even after my weight loss, I am carrying way too much belly fat. Although I find that fact disheartening, it is something I can change. I also, in general, carry too much fat on the rest my body. This isn’t about looks. It’s about staying alive and living the best life I can. Still being at risk is not something I would have even considered prior to the test. Like I said, I walked in feeling pretty cocky.
I will be working on reducing my belly fat and having a retest next year. I expect the results to be better now that I know and understand the risk. I have a grandson I want to see grown and married before I go, and lots of things I want to do with my life. I’m glad I had the test. Life is just too short not to fix the things you can.
