Cloudy with a chance of meatball"

Tuesday, December 08, 2009

Hi everyone. Today I went and saw the movie "Cloudy with a chance of meatballs" in 3D. For the first time in a long time, I didn't buy chips or pop corn to eat, felt good! However, let alone the 3D part it was amazing as always! The story of the movie was quite touching and I thought it triggered some important themes. First of all, for those who haven't seen the movie, the story is simple, a boy with a name of "Fliends" like inventions and always trying to invent new things. He lives in a town where all they eat is "SARDINES"! After all his failing inventions, he invented a machine that can create food and it does so using water. That invention becomes very popular in his town since they now can eat buggers, ice creams, pasta, meat etc just by ordering it through the machine! At the end the machine becomes unstoppable and it creates food with big portion sizes. The myer of the town tries to take advantage of the little boy and his creation to gather tourists to come to the town so he becomes rich. At the end of the movie, the boy had to stop the machine himself as it becomes uncontrollable and it could destroy the world with "the storm of food!". That was the movie briefly. However, underneath all the laughter, I sensed another moral to the story. The idea that "bigger isn't better!" People in the town started eating like crazy all the food that was avaible to them so they turned hugely overweight. Also the children in the town were getting tommy sickness from eating alot of junk! I felt that the movie was kind of communicating that you may spend your whole life wanting to do something that people could remember you for, e.g. like the boy in the story who wanted to invent, but in doing so you forget sometimes, your moral and the true nature of your goals. You doing your goals for the wrong reasons and you harming others. We all find ourselves in situations where we have to choice between our own desires and what our family and friends want us to do. And we realise, sometimes early enough to fix the damages, that we been striving for, is causing others to dislike us somehow. Another moral of the story, or what I thought, that you can spend you all life wanting to do something so bad but when you do do it, you will stop it yourself for the sake of others. Over all I enjoyed it!
If you have seen the movie share your thoughts about it?

P.s. there was so much food in the movie and I didn't feel tempted or craved any! Woohoo!

    We are creators of our own destiny whether it be by inventions or food. Sometimes I wonder why there is so much temptation in our environment but on reflecting upon it I suppose itís like a painter with a canvas in front of him, does he want 6 colors or a hundred colors of paint to use.

    I'm happy that you enjoyed the movie and was able to free yourself from temptation. The big questions is, how do you feel about yourself? Is it important to do what is right for you, or to do what will make your friends and family happy? These are questions that only you can answer.
Sometimes we enjoy the movie and laugh so hard that we miss the message; but you didn't. That's a good thing. Maybe the message will help you along your journey. Best wishes and stay healthy. marlene

Old me back

Thursday, October 29, 2009

Well, I've been around for a while now, and haven't lost any weight yet!

I don't blame the site, of-course or anything else except myself!

I've been very stressed and busy with university work, that I didn't exercise as much a I should and would liked to!

Final exams are coming soon & during the holiday, i'll sure to post some of the

interesting topics I learned from Psychology about life & you can make connections to your
life as i did when I studied them!

I just waked now, (4:50am), I had to do some reading before my two lecturers
for 3rd year of my degree! But instead I turned the internet on, and sat on the couch!

I had to get up and do some excerise before showering and leaving to university but i feel the
laziness" again!!"

I used to enjoy getting up early & "move it" on the treadmill because that was

the only thing I could do! Now I could do so much more outside my home!

Not just this in me, that have changed, many and many other aspects

People, now, started to notice the new way and approach towards life.

"Hey, life is good" "Just enjoy" "Enjoy every moment that passes by you"

I feel as though I'm gaining myself back, the old me, the happy me!

Bye for now!

About me in nutshell!

Saturday, October 24, 2009

Hey to everyone who is going to read my blog.

To start with i'll introduce myself very simply.

I'm a 20 years "young" lady who lived previously a life of pain, suffering and

tears. I've faced so much difficulties and many situations that changed the way I

look into life, love, friendship and family!

At a young age (14) I lost my first love! Well you may say, what one knows about

love at this young age. But I know I did! When the only ones who you feel

warm & secure with, die infront of your eyes in a car accident, wouldn't

you change your mind about life? I started to believe in fate, nothing else in

our life we can change, and as a consequence I started eating to death! When

people around me started noticing the "fat" changes i blamed it on genetic!

I come from an "overweight" family, where everyone is overweight! But I knew

that I wasn't before, and although I do have the tendeacny to gain weight fast

due to this genetic factor I can still control my intake of food and avoid

being overweight. But I didn't. I felt the need for food. I wanted the security in

food. I knew that food is always there for me everytime I need it!!!

Then, fate came into play again. We moved to Australia from the

Middle - East. and again food is the only thing that doesn't change

from a country to another, right?

Not to mention, the death of two of my best friends due to various reasons.

Not to mention, the feeling of homesick.

Not to mention, the hardness in feeling as you don't belong

And the list will go on!

However, I lived another personality with people!

No one saw me ever crying "only my big teddy bear!"

No one heard me complaining or talking about anything that bothers me

I always kept it to myself. Because I felt like this is the me that No one should

know off! It is me from deep inside and if i started sharing it with someone

I may lose them and then what was the point?!

Nevertheless, I was successful at school, got top marks and graduated and

currently in my third year of my psychology degree. I choose psychology,

specifically for many reasons that I may share in another blog sometime.

University/ college was the changing step in my life! I started gaining my self.

I realised how much life could be different, the changes I could make and the

slow death I was driving my self into. I started exercising, cutting on junk food

and lost almost 15 kilos by motivation and willingness. But when I arrived at my

current weight "76 kilos", life wanted to come into play again and take

control! I lost the only and one very close friend! At that point, I realised the

truth, I realised that the way we live our life is the way it works out! I didn't

blame it on life this time, I blamed it on the bad habits my friend had,

drinking too much, smoking too much and many other problems! I realised

there is no turning back for me, I've to get my life back, I've for once to think

of what is coming ahead of me, I've to believe in myself from the deep inside and

not just fake it infront of people. I've to too many things!

And i found Sparkpeople by browsing the internet. And now I'm motivated

I want to lose the weight and look different and feel different by the time I finish

my degree. By the time I enter "Real life". By the time I feel ready

to be loved and love again.

    You can handle all this. It is not easy. At age 20 I was going to school too. I became a teacher of deaf students. I just retired about a year ago. It was not an easy road but I sure learned plenty! chris

    Hey NOTCOMFORTABLE, firstly, thanks for passing by. Secondly, I agree we've to change and life isn't going to change us if we don't try and if we not willing to. The first step is to make the decision of change and it is the hardest choice then everything would become easier. Keep in touch!

    Hey! I'm new here too and I know what you mean about not letting anyone see it other than your teddy bear. I've realized that I'm going to have to change myself, because life isn't going to change it for me. I can't wait around for something to happen I have to do it myself. With sparkpeoples help of course! Hopefully we can help each other through this : )
