The thing with being overweight – it is just crazy. With age 36 I have written myself off big time. I felt like, ok I am not good looking, but at least I am smart. The thing with being smart is – it does not show in the mirror. Like you can look into the mirror all you want – you will notice no smartness, if you know what I mean.
Another problem was: even being smart – I had to try five times that hard to get peoples’ attention. This is what apparently happens. If you are overweight, although there is more of you – people actually notice less of you. Isn’t that a paradox?
I know that somebody would say: “This is all in your head”. Such a smart person! Really? You see what happened – I have lost 30 pounds up till now. And guess what? My head is still the same size and as matter of fact the same weight. So I dare to guess that it was not all in my head. But actually it was all over my body.
I lost 6 inches on my waist, 5 inches on my hip, 3.5 inches on each thigh and as a matter of fact – almost nothing on my head. I have a new hypothesis though for in the case there is something in our head. It goes: Drop those pounds and head will heal!
For me it feels like a wizard of some extraordinary power came in and painted my world in color. I feel young and have so much more energy it is inexplicable.
I fit into my dresses, (and no – I will not stop talking about it, because fashion is a great motivator for a woman), I look good on pictures. We are running our first Art of Fat War Campaign with 7 girls from 7 different countries. We have launched our fat burning fashion product Perfect Tights. Our blog Coco Tomātl gets more and more followers by the day. I am meeting exciting people and running exciting projects. This is nice. I am grateful and humbled!
30 pounds ago I would not dare. 30 pounds ago I was fat and old. Now I am young and full of life! You see it is not only about weight. It is about sitting sealed in a dusty box back in the shed of our life as opposed to daring greatly and living fully! And I am truly amazed that 30 pounds lost fat gave me this size of a kick into my butt, kicked me out of the dusty box to the front lines of my live!
If you want to lose weight – join our Art of Fat War Program. It is a secret program though. So you will need to PM me to join. Yours, Jane Rene Maria
