Health Issues: high blood pressure; asthma
By the time she was 28, Stacy Blair was already beginning to have health problems due to her weight. “I was taking medication for high blood pressure, my asthma was getting worse, and it was physically painful to walk or stand for more than five minutes,” she said.
For the first time in her life, she was motivated to lose weight, not for the sake of looking good but for personal wellness and improving her health—an approach that changed everything.
Blair got started by counting calories and keeping a daily log of her meals, which led to her going on a keto diet that helped her lose 220 pounds in 17 months.
“At the end of the day, when everything is all said and done, it’s not about the weight you lose; it’s about the life you gain,” she said.
