In today’s news, we see lots and lots of transformational stories, about how people changed themselves following something that was depressing. In this scenario, we have a woman, who dropped a lot of pounds, along with her boyfriend, or rather she dropped her boyfriend and lost a lot of pounds. Getting rid of this toxic relationship she was able to ensure a lifestyle in luxury and health.
Turning your life around
This is what is going on in today’s world, which we should take inspiration from. As it goes, you can get inspiration from anywhere. This woman is an inspiration for everyone out there, who want to improve their life but aren’t getting the necessary or the furtive drive that would kick-start it.
The 21st century has seen a need for better livelihood and lifestyle, for the generation is fraught with diseases and sickness. The best way to live through it is by keeping yourself neat and trim. This woman was morbidly obese while she was dating. Post-breakup, she decided that enough was enough and that she needed to turn her life completely around, for that would enable her to understand life better, and see it from a point that wouldn’t be as depressing as it was for her in her toxic relationship.
It is not to say, that fat-shaming is a good thing, or that people shouldn’t be completely at ease with their body, but it should be understood that this working out that the woman did, was a catharsis from her breakup, which, quite obviously left a smudge on her. Working out, gave her the necessary zeal to look at life in a way that would prove beneficial to her, and the people around her.
Hope is a powerful thing in this world, which everyone has to believe in. If you don’t, there is just despair waiting for you at the end of the road. Jade Socoby, realized this after she gained 320 pounds. The realization that a life of binge eating and soda would not lead to a healthy life, but would prevent her from reaching her true potential. Stuck in an abusive relationship, the thing to do was to leave her past behind, and work on a future that would serve to be beautiful, and would enable her to live happily.
Moving back home after breaking up, was the hardest task she had to do. And so she did. Back home, she had to focus on emotional and mental stability first, as those were extreme volatile post-breakup. She needed to realize that everything wasn’t over, and she could still turn her life around. She just needed to believe in herself that life would be beautiful, and all she had to do was work for it.
Work hard and you will succeed
The physical transformation came later. But this mental transformation that she undertook changed her as a human being, someone who was wise and was thinking about herself. Someone who placed herself before others; because she needed to love herself. Respect herself for who she was.
After being emotionally and financially drained, she needed to turn her life around, and get back on her feet. Her ex-has sucked her dry, and now was the time to change that. Her family needed to support her at this juncture, and so they did and her brother helped her plan out a fitness regime that she adhered to religiously. She had to cut back on her food, negating soda and fast food from her diet, and focussing on items that would help her live successfully. The hard point here was to restrain herself from going back to where she was, and that did wonders to her body and her self-esteem.
Food addiction is difficult to go against. Especially for someone who had a history of binge eating. Jade had to literally restrain herself from even thinking about food that was unhealthy. But seeing the changes in her body, she finally realized that she could do this. She deserved better, she needed better. She realized that as long as she would work out diligently, and without any hesitation, she would continue to see changes throughout her body, and that would lead her to look at a cheesecake in the face, and say “no”.
Learning to love yourself
Post her changes, where she has lost 160 pounds and is at peak physical fitness, Jade has to say that the belief to be better, to do better, should be ingrained in you. Someone forcing you to do something wouldn’t come out properly. You would always miss out on self-doubt because this is someone else forcing themselves on you.
What is needed is the belief in one’s own strength, and that nothing ever could shake you from your path if you have decided to give it to you all. Fitness industry relies on hard work, and belief. But, progress isn’t a straightforward, simple journey. The destination doesn’t matter. The discipline, the control that one learns throughout one’s journey: that matters.
