The Choice we make determines how far we go in life. How determined are you to make that life changing choice? How committed are you to the choice you made?
Here is the story of a Young lady who was obese and was never happy with her condition. She had sleepless night, cried all night because she wants to be happy in life. She needed to lose that fat, she wanted to stay healthy, she knew all the risks that obesity poses and wanted not to be a victim.
Here is the story:
You know this whole fitness thingy has it’s untold stories…
Not many people will tell you everything as it happened during their weight loss journey.
This is one of those untold stories…
The thing is this,
There were days I really cried, there were days I didn’t sleep at night.
That’s not news For some folks that will be claiming I know the girlie beneath this mask of “am a strong girl”. It is not what you really think.
Yes! I cry! Infact I can cry very well. Lol. Just give me something to cry about… I have a very cordial, unalloyed relationship with my lacrimal glands…lol
Back to biz, there were days I cried while eating, days I cried while exercising…yes! Pains! Aches and the gnawing dull ache post jogging on my ankle that seems not to go away especially with my poor habit of never taking painkillers…
OK , least I forget!for that lady reading this piece, that thinks I’ve got a bad ankle or knee is a plausible, great and romantic excuse! Noooo!! Think again!!!
I got a really bad ankle too… Infact I have had days of limping plus the whole unsolicited/ “uncanvassed” pity. Trust me! I soooo hate that… it makes me want to cry! I prefer empathy to sympathy anytime anyday…
But I held on! I sought, researched and found new but equally effective exercises that have low impact on my ankle… BATAMA WEIGHT LOSS ADEPT.
Even though I enjoy jogging! I love the post jogging feeling plus the thoughts I process while at it…I do a lot of mental ruminations while jogging. I had to make do with ” ankle” friendly exercises like mountain climbers, burpees, dancing(…yesss! not that I know how to dance but I just move my body till I break into sweat.), all sorts of crunches, planks, jumping jacks, squats etc…too numerous to mention.
I can remember that day, I had this terrible sugar cravings! I was still starting this fitness thing then, so I didn’t quite know how to cook “appetizing” clean chops… I was still mourning my divorce with food swimming in plenty oil then.
I can prepare very terrible drab looking oiless.
I had been introduced to this product called Batama weight loss adept which contained simple recipes and exercise plan.
So, I was to have my lunch from the food I prepared based on my diet plan but yours truly was seriously rooting for a bite of that coconut cake that my girl friend gave me a day before… Infact, I could kill to take a bite ! I opened the fridge lots of times, took a good look at the cake and wow! My wandering eyes found another ‘sweetheart ‘- my big bottle coke!
Find thr product that changed my story here.
Lemme tell you the truth, I stood there for close to 30mins, “psyching” myself that a bite won’t harm and ” re- psyching” myself that the pain of the morning exercise was not worth this compromise, I prayed for strength not to eat that cake! Oh yesss! I actually did, Infact, you need to see me talking to myself that day! and finally I did what I know how to do well, I cried! I wept! Carried my plate of food I prepared based on the recipes, I ate and cried the more because I needed a bite off that cake.
Recounting this scenario may seem like nothing now! Trust me, it was something then!
It was a milestone in my battle to regain mastery over my eating habits! It ushered in many more lil victories that make up what is obvious today!
I may not know exactly what your struggles have been!
But bring it on!!I won’t say I can relate to all of it but Trust me when I say I can relate to a good number of them …
All am trying to say is that, this fitness thingy is not one bit easy but you can decide to fight it head on, slay the demons and get your mojo back! Yeah! I said that!!!
Find a reason to fight!
Your health is a good one!!
The additional gain of having more energy to do stuffs, wearing that body con you’ve always wanted or just being fit! Name them! Lol
Lemme leave you with this verse
” I’m not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don’t get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I’ve got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back.
This story was very inspirational and I just have to share it here for as many as those that would reach this site and cease this opportunity to transform their lives. It is never late to change your destiny for good.
Staying healthy is a choice. You save more money staying health. Health is wealth.
