One morning, when you get out of the shower. You look in the mirror and notice that your waist is enlarging.
In addition, lately, you feel more tired than a year ago. You find it difficult to stand for a long time and climbing stairs is an odyssey. The hot season has even begun and you don’t dare to wear shorts or a swimsuit. because you don’t feel comfortable with your body, you’re embarrassed.
