For so long I’ve been trying to lose weight and keep it off. In my younger days losing weight was not a problem, I stayed at 130 pounds for a while with no problem. However when I got in my late 20’s I put on weight that was difficult to come off later. When Dominique Lanoise said that no one chooses to be obese it speaks of her desperate need to lose weight and her compulsion that prevents her from creating her perfectly imperfect body.
Dominique Lanoise was born on May 18, 1970 in Haiti, it was our shared country of birth that personally connected us. I immediately could relate to her and I supported her fight to get her weight under control. I wanted her to win and get her life back to where she wanted it nevertheless she lost her battle with her perfectly imperfect body.
According to Dominique her body begin changing after her first child was born, she just put on so much weight. It is understandable to put on a couple of extra pounds after giving birth. Nonetheless most women lose the weight after giving birth with diet and exercise. One major contributing factor to Dominique Lanoise weight gain was the area she called home Miami, Florida. Meaning she would get people in her neighborhood to give her food. I don’t understand why those people would bring her bad food when they know how devastating it could be to her. That’s why I always say your weight is no one’s business, and you have to love yourself first.
Unfortunately Domonique loved her food too much that her health came second. In the infamous show called my 600 pound life Dominique Lanoise declared she can eat two to three double cheese burgers for one day everyday that’s approximately over 4,000 calories a day. I can sort of understand her plight, Haiti is a poor country which don’t have a lot of food but America have an abundance of food which you can eat at your own risk. Self control is not something we all can practice. For instance today I came from my exercise at the park and it took a lot of self control not to eat all the cookies however not all of us can do that.
I don’t understand why some people ask wow how you let yourself get so big, like you choose to be obese? When I started putting on the weight it crept up on me because I didn’t weigh myself. People’s rude comments didn’t make the situation better I was left confuse and shock at my own weight gain. Even though I’m not as big as Dominique Lanoise was i can still relate, we all understand sometimes how one bite isn’t enough nor is two or three.
I want to leave you with the thought you never know someone’s inner struggles don’t just judge without knowing the full story. Next post I will continue with the full story of Dominique Lanoise sorry I just couldn’t put it all in this one article. I want you all to enjoy the rest of your week don’t let a weigh in destroy your whole week you are still beautiful no matter what the scale says. Bye my lovelies.
I see that out of all my websites a large amount of my traffic seem to gravitate to this website. I believe the reason for this website’s popularity is that this website really comes from straight from my heart. I created this website because I was body shamed and I felt that was wrong and I wanted to support other people who are going through the same thing.
One such women that was struggling with her weight was Sharon Mevsimler a native of Great Britain. For most of her youth Sharon was of normal weight, nevertheless by the time she got married her weight started to pile on her 5’2 body. As some of you may know a short frame body does not carry extra weight well. Who was Sharon Mevsimler and what caused her unprecedented weight issues?
Sharon Mevsimler was born on 1969 in England, from the start she witness her own mothers battle with her own weight. During her childhood Sharon’s mother Anne would put her on a diet so that she would not suffer the same weight issue as she did. For the most part it worked Sharon remained thin throughout her teen years.
Unfortunately after a beautiful marriage to her husband Bulent, Sharon Mevsimler begin putting on weight after giving birth to her children. While most mothers would shed the pounds after giving birth Sharon kept on the pounds and added additional weight to her short frame. Her short frame was put under its maximum string when in 2003 she could no longer fit into her scooter. Surgery seemed like it was the best solution to get Sharon’s life back on track. When “she was told the NHS had agreed to the gastric bypass” she was ecstatic and her hope of a normal life was restored.
Gastric Bypass My Safe Haven
By the grace of God Sharon Mevsimler surgery went well without any complications. She was able to go home after 4 days. Sharon went from 42 stone to 23 1/2 stone that is approximately half her weight. While the surgery was able to help Sharon shed the extra weight that made her so miserable however it didn’t stop the war that was going on in her head. I believe if Sharon was able to go to therapy after the surgery she may still be alive today. Sadly Sharon Mevsimler lost her life on 2010 at the age of 41. She left behind 4 children (Jayden, Paige, Emrah, Tyler), husband Bulent, and her mother Anne who loved her so much. Sharon story is a cautionary tale which tell us that there is no such thing as a quick fix. I truly believe that the wrong problem was fix.
World Fitters so many of us see our weight as the problem and we try to fix that with diet and exercise. So many of us forget that our weight begins in our mind. For instance When I was being put down for my weight gain by so many people, I didn’t realize frankly I don’t care about what they think about my body it is none of their business. The truth of the matter is it was all me. I hated myself I thought I was fat and ugly which was exactly what I became. World Fitters the best weightloss program is to love yourself and the weight will come naturally off. Unfortunately for Sharon Mevsimler she didn’t love her perfectly imperfect self and now she is gone forever. Love yourself World Fitters have a great day!
