I think it may be a sign of the times, especially on this side of the world, that a hundred pounds
of extra weight is not uncommon.
Adults who have it have usually have tried everything they can think of, and that has been suggested in the press, with no luck at all.
Actually, the weight may be the main reason I came to CureZone and became involved with the various forms of 'cleansing', discovering some of the 'blocks' to overall well-being.
I have dropped about 30 pounds
(2 stone?) from 'controlling' my supposed 'diabetes', over a couple of years.
While I am very pleased with that progress, I know I have reached a 'threshold', and stayed here a very long time. I can't tell you how wearying this is.
Along with my urinary, liver/digestion, and parasite problems, every discovery I make always has that background question...why am I still the wrong shape?
Every household has a variety of preferences among family members. The difference between what keeps my 83 year-old husband well and strong, and what I prefer, is striking.
If I were to eat his food I would certainly die, quickly. He can barely tolerate vegetables, certainly not 'greens'. So, like most families, we compromise...usually preparing different meals. Restaurant food is different again. As is the food served in the retirement home where my parents live.
My brother's family food is different again, and he and his wife prefer entirely different foods from each other.
And we all have different 'health' issues, though there are certain commonalities. I suspect parasites, and salt...and particular changes in the food supply. There may also be general mindsets influencing whole populations toward ill health...I am not wise enough to tell.
What I do know for sure is that each piece of the puzzle I learn, for me, is far simpler and easier than anything I have learned before.
I seldom weigh myself. I may have only 50 pounds
of 'excess weight', or 75, depending on whose standard I accept. Yet, when I follow anyone's 'health program', there it remains...why am I still the wrong shape?
I judge not by the fashion of the day, but by how I function. I can only be an expert on myself. I make changes in my own 'lifestyle' very gently, just in case.
Someone pointed out something quite profound the other day.
They said that when we instruct ourselves to NOT do something, the brain must first process the negative scenario to reach what it must do positively.
We give ourselves negative instructions all the time.
What attracts us to crime stories, or the evening news? ...The 'awfulness' of it all, right?
We think we are protecting ourselves...learning what to watch out for...or that it is only fantasy, and has no effect on us, right? WRONG, I think.
If we see only the 'awful', repeatedly, what does our brain have to look forward to? (Let alone what the 'awful' does to a child's brain!)
Even here on CureZone, where we are all looking to be well, we focus on what is w.r.o.n.g in order to notice it and eliminate it...we hope.
In asking my question...why am I still the 'wrong' shape?...I could instead ask...why am I still alive, feeling better and better, and thinking like a thirty-year-old?
It is the grand and the beautiful I need more of in my life...whatever my bathroom scale says.
A short while ago I looked at a picture of my brothers and myself, taken when we were all about thirty. We were gorgeous!
Why did we concentrate on the troubles and stresses of the day? We had life by the tail!
Today, I have life by the tail...I am breathing! I can dream! I know some very fine people who like me! I sleep in a soft bed, drink well-water, and putter in a huge garden under a wide blue sky! Could there be a better opportunity for happiness?!
I already skip newspapers...think I'll go and turn off the TV...maybe sell it.
