Brett Jolly’s Daily Thought (Trying to lose weight from medication)

I AM A 52 YEAR OLD FEMALE WHO HAVE GAINED MORE THAN 80LBS IN THE PAST YEAR AND A HALF SINCE BEING IN A CAR ACCIDENT. THE MEDICINE THAT I AM TAKING MAKES ME GAIN WEIGHT. KNOWING WHAT TO EAT IS NOT A PROBLEM BUT EXERCISE IS HARD TO DO BECAUSE OF MY INJURIES. I AM THINKING ABOUT HIRING A PERSONAL TRAINER TO HELP ME IN THE GREY AREAS ALONG WITH CHANGING SOME EATING HABITS. DO  YOU THINK THIS WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA OR DO YOU ANY SUGGESTIONS?

 

It is an absolutely a great idea, and I commend you for taking the initiative to indulge in training with a personal trainer. A lot of people are going through the same tribulations that you are currently experiencing, but I am glad to hear that you have no desire to stand idle and let your circumstances “dictate you.” The first thing that needs adjustment is NOT the body, but rather the “mind.” You see, a LOT of people start diets and exercise programs only to give up later on before they even reach their “desired” goals. It is VERY important to have your mind set and “keep” it set when it comes to work or exercise programs. The mind can accomplish a lot when you utilize your brain functions properly. For instance, if you start a diet but after a few days you look in the mirror and you “don’t” see the results of any weight loss, then for some people the mind “automatically” kicks in and makes you think that this is a waste of time, therefore enabling the mind to make the body “think” that it is “still’ fat. When that happens, your body will “behave” in an “overweight” manner, thus clearing the way for “more” weight gain to set in. The opposite can happen if your mind can “trick” the body into believing that you actually “are” losing weight through “positive thinking.” It is “extremely” important to be “mentally strong” to take on this task, otherwise you will do like so many others and “lose weight” only to “gain it all back again.” As for your situation, your accident has probably hampered you from doing a lot physically. However, if your accident was “that” bad, then chances are you may still be feeling some pain from it anyway. While exercising may hurt at the weight you are you can’t “gain” without experiencing some “pain.” Exercise is “supposed” to hurt (otherwise it is not working). When you get with a personal trainer, he or she can tell you what exercises you can do to still reach the desired objective without causing more damage to your body’s system. As for the medicine that makes you gain weight, talk to you doctor to see if there is a “viable alternative” that will have less potency  while giving your more “freedom” to exercise. The more weight you carry, the more your body has to “support.” Losing weight can take a “load” off the body area that your back (and other areas) have to support. I am sure your doctor would “love” to see you lose weight, so he should have no problem coming up with a medicine that is a “viable alternative.” When you lose weight, your whole world changes. You sleep better, you are happier and you are more energetic. As little as “5” pounds can make a big difference in your day. Don’t let excuses stop you from making a difference in your own life. “Make the change” that will “significantly” alter your life and “believe” in yourself so that you will “know” it is working. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of “hot dogs” (Don’t ask me to explain this). Set your mind clock to “victory” and then just let the timer “go.” Once you have accomplished your mission then your life will be much better for it. “Believe and conquer.” Here is the Phantom Poet with a well balanced lyrical crusade:

I’m a 52 year old female who has gained 80 pounds in the last year
I want to take most of the weight off, but NOTHING from my “rear”
I want to lose the weight, but I will not be a complainer
Maybe I should enlist the services of a personal trainer
I need to lose all this weight and for this there is no dispute
If I am to work hard exercising, then I need a trainer who’s “cute”
I need him rugged but stern and a “take charge” type of guy
After all, I can’t just have “any man” try to reposition my “thigh”
My body feels like I have been hit with many sticks and stones
My trainer doesn’t realize, but when I lose this weight I plan to jump his bones
I want to lose this weight fast, and while I am not planning to “rush” him
I like to be “on top” so at this juncture I just might “crush” him
He is working me hard and it feels like our relationship is starting to “click”
Now he has just informed me that he “loves” women that are “big and thick”
He loves the way I am “right now” and while he playfully refers to me as his big mound of “playdough”
As soon as I lose all of this weight, I think he will drop me just like a “hot potato.”
Well, now who “cares” about losing weight when I can stay just the way I am?
In fact, I’m leaving the gym to order me two “extra” plates  of grits and ham
I feel like a “little” big girl again, and my life has just gotten a reprieve
Even though I am ignoring the short “grunts” of my man who keeps saying he “can’t breathe”
I’m on top and he is getting quieter and quieter, until he draws his very “last” breath
I am heart broken, because I think I just crushed this man “to death”
So if you need to lose weight, get a trainer and don’t try to “fake it”
Because if you are overweight and “on top” his ribs just might not be able to “take it”

“Snap, crackle and pop”… and this is NOT the cereal… The Phantom Poet
