A Success Story: Where There’s a Will, There’s a Way

Have y’all seen this video? It’s been flying around Facebook for a few days and I love it.

Why do I love it? It’s not because it’s a weight loss “success story” because I’ve seen far too many of those that don’t have happy endings (all the weight is gained back PLUS some).  Weight loss isn’t necessary for improved health and happiness either.

What I love about this success story is:

  • He didn’t follow some wacky diet or buy any bogus weight loss supplements. He simply reduced his sugar intake and increased his intake of fruits and veggies (something everyone should do regardless of body size).
  • He did yoga! One of the best things about yoga is that it creates “body awareness” and “attunement” – two things that are key to mindful eating and mindful living.
  • He set goals. Although he didn’t go into detail about it in this video, he clearly set goals with his yoga program and documented his progress along the way.
  • He was determined to stick with the changes he made. He believed that he could do it and by God, he was going to do it. That’s the kind of thinking that leads to REAL lifestyle change.
  • He demonstrates positive self-care. He wasn’t shamed into doing this – he wanted to do it.

You don’t have to lose weight to be happy or healthy, but cultivating a desire to take care of yourself, both mentally and physically, is essential for optimal health and wellness. Setting goals is the next step, whether it’s meditating for 5 minutes everyday or training for a 5K. What goals can you set today?

    Read the details of a Medical Weight Loss Clinic Success Story patient Theresa Keyser. Learn why Theresa said “I am the person I dreamed to be for so many years.” “I was an emotional eater for a long, long time.” Theresa has been battling with her weight ever since she was a young child. She has always used food to deal with her emotions and that made it near impossible for her to control her weight. Theresa tried countless different methods to try to control her habits and weight loss; Atkins, Weight Watchers, personal trainer with a supervised diet, and even physician supervised diet with medications, but with each new attempt the “results were always short term and disappointing.”

    My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from
    PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on various websites for about a year
    and am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard great
    things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?
    Any help would be really appreciated!
