Their Untimely Death Our Beginning Part 3 A

Hola World Fitters.

Today I’ve decided to deviate from my normal posts, man also want to create their perfectly imperfect bodies. Up to now I have mostly talked about women struggles with their weight. Yes it is true that men are inherently bigger than their more feminine counterparts. However there is just as much pressure if not more for them to adhere to societal body image. From the chiseled chest to the broad shoulders and don’t forget about strong arms and legs.  Many women dream of their man looking exactly like that.

Unfortunately Manuel Uribe  looks nothing like that, as a matter of fact he was the opposite of the ideal body image. Nonetheless his image and body appearance was the least of his worries. Meaning his health was the top priority.  He was once known as “the world’s heaviest man,” however few people knew the full extent that his obesity made him  suffer. Loseweightandfeelgreatwithfran.com is going to tell his story. I’m going to be honest I don’t know the full story either. My article was written from normal research I did online. If you personally knew Manuel Uribe feel free to comment below anything that you wanted to add to his story.

Manuel Uribe story begun on June 11, 1965 in Monterrey Mexico. His first years on this earth was pretty normal, he ate the same kind of foods many Mexicans indulge in such as  rice and beans, tacos, tamales, enchiladas, pozole.  I  can definitely relate for majority of my youth I was thin, it wasn’t until my late twenties that my weight begin piling on.  A major change in your life like that is never easy adjusting too. For Manuel it was many changes that he had to adjust to when he came to the United States that trully contributed to his weight gain.

Many people come to the United States for a better life (me included). The United States is less commonly known for making people gain a lot of weight. I’m in New York where many people take public transportation, contrastingly many people in Amsterdam like to ride their bikes to get where they need to go. For Manuel Uribe Dallas Texas sedentary environment enabled him to add on the pounds. His job as a computer repairmen  didn’t help either as he was most of the time sitting. According Manuel Uribe his life in America didn’t leave much room to exercise.

In my opinion the chance to exercise isn’t always going to come up. With our busy lifestyles making plans to exercise seems like near to impossible at times. We have to make the commitment to create our perfectly imperfect bodies. I mean there are a lot of different parts of  Manuel Uribe life that enable his impending weight gain. Unfortunately I cannot talk about all of them on one post. In the next post I will talk more about Manuels life so that we can understand obesity more. I always encourage people to seek to understand rather than judge. See you next time, make your day as beautiful as you are, bye.

 

Their Untimely Death Our Beginning Part 2 B

Good Morning World Fitters!

I’ve been spreading my business on social media, mainly Facebook. I’ve seen so many posts about losing weight, as if it was the best thing that they ever did with their life. Don’t get me wrong losing  weight is a great thing, however it is not everything. As I said if you want to lose weight that is fine but if you want to stay at your perfectly imperfect weight that’s fine too.

This obsession with weight loss is creating an equal obsession with overeating. Beautiful people like Dominique Lanoise are losing there life because of it. Dominique Lanoise took her last breath on March 10,  2012. When I learned of Dominiques death I was so sad. I had hope she would get her life back together and walk again. I’m also sadden because I think of the pain her six children are feeling, it’s a bad situation for everyone.

I definitely was surprised she died even though she got the surgery done. I believed that Dominique Lanoise thought the surgery was a kind of magic pill that would take all her problems away. She thought she wouldn’t have to put any effort to her own health. Nothing in life is ever that easy you have to fight for what you want. Unfortunately Domonique didn’t get that part.

My hard work!

 

Dominique Lanoise died on March 10 at her own hands. What I mean is that she died because of her own decision to leave the hospital. I thought it was very strange that she called 911 while she was still in the hospital. When she got home she got sick due to complications from the surgery, if she stayed in the hospital she may still be alive today.

I think to myself if Dominique Lanoise was still alive today would she have successfully lost all the weight and be able to walk? It’ s difficult to answer that question. It all depends on whether she resolve the problems that caused her to overeat in the first place. If Dominique Lanoise resolved her food issues I definitely think she could’ve created her perfectly imperfect body. I think the surgery just take care of the physical problems , the mental problems still exist and can still hinder a person’s sucess at losing the weight. I think that is what happened to Dominique her mind prevented her from succeeding.

World Fitters don’t let anything or anyone keep you from succeeding. Dominique Lanoise had food brought to her, her daughter help her to exercise, furthermore she had her own personal physician that made house calls, however she still failed at creating her perfectly imperfect body. It’s your body your life no matter what people say they never know what you are going through. Love yourself enough to take care of yourself. Love you all, enjoy the rest of your day, bye.

Depression Stops Your Dreams

Hello world fitters. Depression and weight gain goes hand in hand. The chances are if your big. You wont love your body and your likely to be depress. Unfortunately that’s what the bullies want. They want you to hate your body and hate yourself. Last week we talk about “fat shamming.” “Fat shamming” had led to a lot of depression. A lot of shame. For instance when I gain the weight I really felt ashamed of my body. I no longer felt attractive. Which was embellish with people telling me I was less attractive. All of us must understand that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. We should have the body that we want because we are all worth it. In order for us to be happy. We deserve to get the body and life that we want.

When we are not where we want to be in life. We get depressed and get uninterested in life. Things that we use to love. Have lost it luster. Now depressive thoughts have filled your head. You feel hopeless like life will never get any better. I have struggle with these thoughts in the pass. I felt alone because I have isolated myself from my love ones. Yeah I was knee deep in depression. We all get a little blue sometimes. For example, maybe your long time love have decided that he no longer wanted to be with you. I’ve been heart broken before. It certainly wasn’t fun. Eventually the pain wear off and you move on with your life. With depression you cant simply push the negative thoughts aside and move on. Depression hold on to you like a tight sweater. It wont let you get away from it’s tight grasp. So how do you tell if it is depression and not just a small case of the blues? What is depression?

“Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. “Also called major depressive disorder or clinical depression, it affects how you feel, think, and behave and can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems.” With depression it is more then feeling a little sad. Activities you normally do. You can no longer do them. The energy and positive thoughts are just not there. For example, you are not able to get up and take a shower. That sign let you know that you are experiencing more then your usual woes. While going through these difficult times. It’s good to have a good support group. A support team that you can talk to about your difficult days. Sometimes we just need someone to just listen. No judgment! No suggestions! Just your ear and perhaps a hug or two.

Sometimes a simple hug just wont do. Maybe you need some anti-depressants. Before you get the right drug. you have to know what type of depression you have. Currently there are nine types of depression. They are Major Depression, Persistent Depressive Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Seasonal Affective Disorder(SAD), Psychotic Depression, Postpartum Depression, Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder(pmdd), Situations Depression, Atypical Depression. In another blog post I will go over in more details about the different types of depression. Right now I just wanted to touch on the topic. To give you guys an idea on the different types of depression. So that you can get the help that you need. For your weight gain problems.

As I mentioned before weight gain can have a profound effect on your mental health. Which then can lead to depression. Some people gain weight when they are depressed. While others lose the weight. It depends on the individual. How about you world fitters? Do you gain or lose weight when your depressed? I myself lose weight when I’m depressed. The following research shows the correlation between depression and weight gain. In a 2009 research by the University of Alabama at Birmingham. The researchers found that the more depress people are. The more likely they are to gain weight more then there happier counter parts. It’s really simple really. When you are depressed you wont be moving that much. Your irregular food habits wont help the situation. So the weight will get piled up. The gainer may feel guilty about the weight gain and in turns eat more and gain more weight. It’s a vicious cycle. This vicious cycle can stop with the right suggestions.

My suggestion is try and get the person moving. Exercising releases the endorphins in the brain which makes you feel good. Whenever I’m done exercising I usually feel good. So exercise and get high on life and your body. When your happy the way things are going in your life. It shows! Your skin will be glowing. Your look young and youthful. Your look ready for anything life has to offer. So go out there and live! Your time is limited! Don’t ever waste anytime doing what you don’t love. Cherish every moment like it is your last. Because it just mate be. Make your mark in this world or you will be forgotten. Never forget your dreams! Don’t let depression stop you from achieving your dreams.

My Weekly Shapely:

Hello world fitters! I’m currently here at work. Thinking about what news you guys want me to report to you. I do try to keep you up-to-date on the latest information. After all when it come to weight loss, it’s good to try different things to see which work best for you. Stopping your weight loss journey because of boredom is a very common reason to quit. For instance this whole summer heading to the park and taking one of my long walks. Sometime haven’t been easy. Sometime I definitely wanted to stay home and relaxed. Especially after I was seeing results. I felt I deserve a cheat day as a congratulation for my hard work. As the cooler weather comes in. I know my walking outdoors will stop and I will take my work outs to inside my house. Which in it self will be a challenge. As I get easily distracted. In the end I have to want it bad enough.

I do want it bad enough. I want to make my weight loss part of my life permanently. I’m not going to put back on the weight. I truly believe its imperative that you make the decision to lose the weight. You have to lose the weight for yourself. In the past I tried to lose the weight for other people. I was changing my body the way they see my body should be. Its your body world fitters! Treat it good make it feel good! This “My Weekly Shapely” I’m making a promise to myself for you all to see. The promise is I wont put back on the weight.” If you see me slipping say something! Call me on it! I want to make this an interactive blog. Where we all can interact with each other. I’m also working on posting more pictures and videos of myself. I hope you all have a good experience with this web-site! Moreover I hope you find it helpful. On that note I’m going to wish that you all have a great weekend! Bye bye world fitters!
