I have officially joined Team MM today to walk in Lowell this September for the Walk from Obesity. I find this an important cause as being overweight is a larger problem than most people think. The physical effects are obvious but the mental effects are just as big and sometimes bigger. We live in a society with prejudice against anyone who does not fit into the norm including round people and now that I live as a "skinny" person I see it clearer and I am angered by it.
This may be a small token and I am just 1 person but I am trying to do my part to raise money to educate people about healthier living and weigh loss.
I have improved my life tremendously by losing the weight. I would not recommend this surgery to all as it has it's ups and downs but the weigh loss itself has changed my life forever.
So please make a donation if you can or join us on Team MM and walk in Sunny Lowell, Ma.
