Asking For Help

Back in April, I was looking to lose some weight.  I knew I didn’t want to continue on the same roller coaster that I had been on for more than 10 years.  I was on Lil Wayne’s facebook page, and there was a health coach, Karlee Fain, that was selling her book.  It was a grocery store guide.  I downloaded her book and liked it.  I went on to her website called everybodythrive.com.  I wanted to get to the root of my eating disorder so I filled out the application for her to be my health coach.  I remember that I was nervous after filling out the application.  I was honest on the application.  I told her about my eating disorder on there.  So we set up a call so that we could talk about her program and to see if she would work with me or if it would be her associate that would work with me.  I remember being so nervous on that first call because I was asking for help and I wanted to work with Karlee.  She had helped my future husband.  At that point I didn’t care about how much it was going to cost.  I looked at this as an investment in my future.  My dreams weren’t going to come true if I continued on the path that I was going.  I knew I needed a change.  I was going to destroy myself if I kept eating the way I was.  I was on the fast track to diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, and an early death.  The woman I saw in my visions was happy, healthy, she loved herself, and her dreams were coming true.  I wanted to be that woman from my visions.  It was clear to me that I didn’t love myself.  I needed to work on falling back in love with myself.  You can’t love yourself if you don’t treat your body or mind kindly.  You do that by feeding yourself healthy food and exercising.  It isn’t a sign of weakness to ask for help.  It’s a sign of strength.
