It was dark, upon the kind of hour when you felt like you might cross the devils path...and for some reason I found my self engaged with the thoughts of weight gain and weight loss.
Hold up! are you already skipping this essay-ish writing of mine!?! I mean, I get it...perhaps you've grown tired of this over used topic but bare with me aigh't?
So, as I laid there tracing my thick abdomen with my, wee little hands, i looked for the motivation ,that I BADLY needed, to go down the scales.
Don't get me wrong though...i don't hate my size or any thing it was just an effort to improve my health statues at the time...
that aside, many may agree when I say that the strangest thoughts roam the UnGodliest of hours because something hit me right then.
(Maybe this is a common thought that I happened to tip toe around cause I'm dense as heck but my, slap in the face of a realization went as follows)
Here I was considering getting rid of this ample fat,that eventually resulted from constant cravings while someone not so far away died because they couldn't afford the same food that i consumed to gain it.
I wondered if people in poverty sneer at our gyms, which we put in place to trickle down a precious energy source that other human beings might just kill for...
so don't mind me for asking but are we not cruel? I know I've shared but..is it really okay to eat more than is necessary for survival and a balanced diet, When the snacks we purchase will put pressure on the demand for products?
In case you didn't know: when we buy things in abundance as a whole we raise the prices of goods and services, making them too pricey in the market and lower in supply for other buyers therefore unavailable to citizens with lower incomes.
Can you honestly live with that? Knowing that a mere child faints on the streets because of your extra bread?
This, for me, has become more than a sufficient amount of motivation; it has helped me decrease my intake of food each day, not only for my own sake but also to save a life,a win win situation don't you think?
Lets just hope I don't over do it...and neither do you.
