I’m a huge fan of one particular show on TLC. It’s called My 600-lb Life and I watch it almost every single night. That’s the honest to god truth. I’ll spend my time nightly enjoying a salad or a protein shake with this program on. Most of the time it’s the last thing I see on TV before falling asleep.
You’re probably wondering why I’m telling you all this. Well, truth is, it’s because I like to remind myself just how important it is to be healthy. Additionally, I watch it because it’s important to be grateful for your health in general if you have it because not everyone does. I love hearing about people losing a significant amount of weight on the show. Some people think that it’s next to impossible to lose that much fat and weight but it’s not. It simply requires consistency and dedication. The question that everyone has is what happens to all that skin once the fat has been lost?
Unfortunately, it just hangs there until you do something about it. Which brings me to the reason I’m writing about this in the first place. I want to share a story with you about a man that lost over 300lbs over 24 months. He was featured on TLC’s Skin Tight show.
The gentleman’s name is Roger and he once weighed in excess of 500lbs. Roger went through a procedure known as gastric sleeve surgery and this injunction with serving time and becoming a father may be exactly what saved his life.
Roger was a biker that previously possessed cocaine on the streets. He got arrested and was sentenced to three years in prison. One day Roger decided it was time to turn his life around. He wanted to change and do so for the better. Once his daughter was born, he knew it was time to make some serious life changes and that’s exactly what he did. Long story short, Roger lost more than 100lbs in as little as 90 days. He’s turned his life around in all aspects. The one issue that he still has is excess skin that he’s carrying around. Roger is looking to have the skin removed to make himself look and feel better.

My point here is simple. If you’re struggling with your skin, body composition or weight, then I want you to understand one very important thing. it’s never too late to take action and do the right thing.
If you’re having trouble motivating yourself to workout, then hire a personal trainer. If you need help eating better, then educate yourself by reading our health and diet section. If you need support from others, then join a local group related to your issue. If one simply doesn’t exist, then start one! There are many choices that we have to make in life, it’s just a matter of making the right one.
In the meantime, I’ll be here doing the same thing that I always do, watching my favorite TV show and enjoying some kale, which is also good for your skin.
