Hello all lovely people, I hope that you have all had a great week!!
A friend of mine posted the video above on facebook today and I saw that it was such a great inspiration that I would share it on my blog..
This man was given a life sentence of never walking again, what hope did he have when confined to a wheelchair or walking canes? The hopelessness led to eating as I am sure so did the depression of his confinement.. It is something that we don't hear about a lot but obesity can be linked back a lot of the time to a more deeper reason. A lot of the time over eating doesn't start by someone waking up and thinking they just eat all day for the sake of it but because they have no hope.. There is usually depression, unresolved traumas from the past,being stuck in a rut with life/relationships/job etc or that the person has a medical condition and the doctor gives them a life sentence of *You cant's*
This video gives me inspiration of *you can's* If you need help to get passed what is holding you back don't be ashamed to do so. I got counseling when I lost my weight the first time and my eating habits were linked back to the fact that the only way certain relatives showed me love was by buying me food or cooking me food. As I grew up every time I felt depressed or bored I would eat because it made me feel happy.. Through counseling I was able to work through a huge part of my depression and overcome the obstacle.. This time I have overeaten because of my outlook on life. For a long time I felt stuck in a rut, not sure where I fit in and what the future had for me. I now am at peace to live day by day and embrace who I am right now, not where I may or may not be in the future.
So put down the walking cane (Metaphorically speaking), get out of that chair and believe that you can!! xoxoxoxoxoxo
