Find Your Motivation

“For me, it’s day by day. What am I doing today? Today I’m going to find some time for a little exercise. I’m going to make sure I eat properly, that I live properly.” Ozzy Acosta says he was always overweight—at his heaviest weighing 375 pounds. “Really, my change came about when I started to have kids.” Ozzy’s health quickly became top priority---he was prediabetic and showing signs of fatty liver disease. Doctors say obesity is the leading cause of chronic disease in the U.S., causing conditions like type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and sleep apnea. “Incorporating lifestyle modifications and changes is probably one of the best things that one can do for themselves,” said Dr. Alfred Gitu, a family medicine physician with Lee Health. And it’s exactly what worked for Ozzy. “I would intentionally park far away, why, because it would make me walk. Everybody is taking the elevator; no, I’ll take the stairs. Little stuff like that,” Ozzy said. Using moderation in his diet and making time to be physically active—Ozzy has lost 170 pounds—but he says his journey is not over. “That is so refreshing! That is one of the best feelings that you can have because he took his own life in his hands and realized this is not something that someone else can do for me, this is something I can do for myself and my family,” Dr. Gitu said. Finding your motivation and making healthy choices---it’s what Ozzy Acosta says saved his life.
