Yesterday, I followed up with Ms. V who had sought help with her fibroids. She mentioned something that stopped me in my tracks. “I lost 11 lbs – now I can see my face!” she chuckled.
Ms. V is a vibrant, beautiful woman with a powerful presence – there was no question that anyone could have missed her face. When we first met, she had talked about missed opportunities, and about not moving ahead with her career in the way she had hoped. She had an elderly mom to take care of, an ailing dad living in another town and a full time job. She volunteered. She had shin splints. It was not easy to find the time to exercise. When I mentioned that keeping her weight down would help to keep her fibroids in check, something clicked. She said, “OK. I’ll go to the gym.”
It’s the kind of thing many of us promise ourselves and have a hard time keeping faith with. I know I have.
But Ms. V did it. “I show up, rain or shine.” That’s it? That’s her secret to losing weight?
There is something else. “I stopped going towards the end of July. I still have another 10 to 15lb to go. So I’ll go back to the gym.”
There it is. No beating herself up when she gets sidetracked. No excuses. She just gets back in the saddle with a long term vision.
In the meantime she’s almost finished her first children’s book. And she’s starting to date again.
And that’s also the beauty of homeopathy – it is a catalyst for healing the whole person. It energises from the inside out. It helps you get on track.
