I was so excited I did my own research and came across this article on the USA today website
Like everything wonderful, there's a few catches. One is you need to have doctor's orders to lose weight because of a medical condition.
During my doctors appointment way back in July I had complained of chest pains and trouble breathing. Together we concluded that if I some weight these symptoms might ease. And luckily after losing the first 10 pounds, they did! Additionally, I have very high cholesterol which she suggested may go down if I lost some weight. Last Friday I gave Blood and when you donate they test your cholesterol, I'm excited to see if my efforts have paid off. I don't know if any of the conditions count, I will have to do more research.
