Have you heard of Jelly Belly brand jelly beans? Well, you can go to the factory and watch where the jelly beans are made. Did you know they take the "bad" or "distorted and deformed" jelly beans and they marketed them and call them "Belly Flops".
Have you ever felt like that? Like you were made deformed? Like being over weight was such a disability or you were just made to be fat or unhealthy? I HAVE! I spent years on the weight loss roller coaster feeling like a failure with each attempt to be "normal".
Fact is, I AM NORMAL! I am NOT a "people flop"!! People love me, they care for me and I am accepted!!
It's amazing that my self thoughts were the actual enemy and not society, not my family nor the bad food or bad world that pushes the bad temptations.
I just had to change my thought process and take responsibility for my own health and my relationship with myself and with food.
I know you can do this too! I am a work in progress. Sure, I don't look like I have a weight issue NOW but I did! I once weighed 201 pounds at my highest weight! I once hated myself so much that I wanted to kill myself. I once used food as a drug and overdosed myself daily as I cried over how I felt hated by people, my husband, my children and society.
Know you are NOT a "Belly Flop"!! Just look at how a flip in thought perceptions changed how Jelly Belly branded their candy they were going to toss away. It's now a very popular item in the factory!
Think about it!
