It is so amazing to witness people change their lives for the healthier despite large barriers and obstacles. One of those people is Anne, a woman in her fifties who works at a physical job, has painful knees and shoulders, and has struggled with weight issues her whole life. That is just the tip of the iceberg of barriers for Anne and for many it would be enough to defeat the desire to be healthier. Anne has also experienced the worst experience a mother can, the loss of a child. And not just one child, two children on two separate occasions. Now as a grandmother she is raising grandchildren too. Anne has learned because of personal work and growth the importance of taking care of herself physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. Despite the barriers she faces daily, Anne for the last 18 months has committed to at least four exercise sessions per week, has coped in different ways other than with food, and has continued to seek growth in all areas of her life. She is strong despite the shoulder and knees. She is down to a size she has not been since she was a teenager. She is more confident, happier, and healthier overall. And she has lot’s of barriers. Please take care of your health today. I know it can be hard sometimes but it is so important to try your best for yourself and those who love you. Commit to a safe exercise program and seek to control your growth, nothing else. Begin as soon as possible. BE YOUR OWN MIRACLE.
