I am fortunate to have unexpectedly come across this Special Edition magazine via People titled Half Their Size (2019 Edition that lists display until 05/21/2019). I am fortunate to be surrounded by a variety of people of diverse bodysizes in both my personal and professional life who make the best of their circumstances in life. Additionally, I am blessed in both my personal and professional life and I am fortunate to be blessed with an amazing husband who loves me regardless of my bodytype. Still, even with I fortunately becoming at least over 30 pounds thinner since 2016, the drive for me to improve upon my fitness and body weight goals come from within from myself for multiple reasons beyond vanity though I prefer to be discreet about for now. However, I feel it is positive synchronicity when I unexpectedly came across this magazine that has some of the following features: how a school clerk successfully went from 302 pounds to 147 pounds and trained for a half marathon, how a nanny went from 285 pounds to 145 pounds, how a retired real estate agent went from 249 pounds to 116 pounds, a feature profile of someone I remember seeing from a previous magazine issue who became thinner after consistently walking at least six miles a day from walking 3 miles to and from work, a recipe for salmon with architokes and sun dried tomatoes, and more. One of the features that I enjoyed the most was that the profiles of a multiple number of the success stories featured displayed what they did for a living. This is important and helpful to me because even before coming across this magazine edition through synchronicity, I was intuitively aware that it is important to avoid comparing your own bodyweight improvement journey to someone else’s because each person’s journey is different depending on where they live, their occupational/employment status, how much money they make, the amount of free time they have and other multiple factors. However, seeing each person’s occupational profile and how they tailored their fitness and body improvement goals in their personal and work life depending on their employment/occupational status is helpful to a person such as myself to help give me ideas on what I can adapt for my situation. This is because I am fortunate to intuitively know how many miles I must consistently walk each day to achieve my own fitness and body weight improvement goals and still it is helpful to see other profiles of others share some of their helpful tips (even as someone who is fortunate to have via synchronicity come across a story online of someone who became significantly thinner after walking an average of 10 miles per day in a span of 2 years).
