Real Talk About Relationships and Married Life

quote by Toni MorrisonThere is a reason why fat people are fat. This is not an attack on those who are obese. I myself used to weigh close to 200 pounds. I got tired of being fat, so I did something about it. I got up off of my behind and went to work to lose some weight. But losing it does not always start out by going to the gym or running on the treadmill. It starts by cleaning your house literally and figuratively.

When people saw me go from wearing a size 18-20 to working a stage in a new 125-lb frame sporting a size 4, they asked me how I did it. I always responded with, “I took back my life and power.” That’s exactly what you’ll have to do, not withstanding any medical conditions that could place you at risk.

Physical weight in most cases starts out as mental and emotional weight, and then blows out of control and manifest itself as more pounds. One of the first things a person has to do is deal with the issues that are burdening them. This takes time; but the first pounds you shed will come off as a result of you bringing some control back into your life by getting rid of emotional baggage. You need a support system to do this. However, not having one should not be an excuse. Be determined to get better for yourself. In other words do it for yourself, not necessarily by yourself.

When a person exercises they release endorphins. Endorphins help you to lose weight by suppressing the appetite and by blocking pain giving a sense of overall well-being. Once this process is kicked off, a fat person can get some physical exercise by washing down walls, taking out the trash, sweeping and mopping the floor. They can also add a little fun by playing with young children or each other. This does not have to always be outside. Have fun playing indoor hand ball with a foam ball, bowling with plastic bowling pins or coke bottles and a large soft rubber ball, play hand tennis with a mate or child.

Some people, who have put on considerable amounts of stress related weight, often have other people doing things for them that they could be doing for themselves. Unfortunately children or young people become the victim of unnecessary work that could be shared more fairly within the household. If you are overweight, you do have to take some responsibility for the way you are. It makes no sense to continue blaming other people for your condition. I encourage you to take back your life and power. You can do it with a little will power, self control, and self determination.

  1. Wow, that’s what I was searching for, what a stuff! present here at this web site, thanks admin of this web site.

  2. Wow this sounds so simplistic compared to all those exercise and dieting gimmicks. I’m not heavily overweight but the weight I do carry makes me feel
    unattractive. And when I look at myself I think if only I were a little smaller. I mean, I love my eyes and I’m almost pretty but the weight thing really gets to me. And I’m so guilty of having other people do things for me. It’s not that I feel entitled to it and I don’t get mad when they refuse it’s just that when someone does something for me, I feel happy. So I’m guilty of asking for the occasional favor even when it’s not needed. I guess it just makes me feel like they care. I don’t know what this issue of mine is but it doesn’t seem right and I know it’s something that I have to work on with myself. But I don’t understand it.

    • Kira, first let me say you are not your eyes, your hair, your weight. I am sure through the low self-esteem and low self-worth therein is hiding a truly amazing and beautiful woman. You do not have to resort to manipulation to get what you want and need. Go deep within and mine out those precious gems within. When you learn to appreciate who you are and more importantly whose you are, then others will follow suit. Please consider purchasing my book From Ordinary to Extraordinary and especially go through the workbook exercises. You will most definitely emerge a brand new you! Here is the link for more details. SMILE.
