My journey has been no different then yours. I grew up as the “Fat Kid” people teased me and called me names like; fatso, tubby fat boy, piggy and so many more. Those names hurt and they took their toll on me and I withdrew from the world. My social skills and my social life were developed by the refrigerator and the TV. More I was teased the more I withdrew and I buried myself in food. I used to find: love, comfort and acceptance. I would stuff myself trying to hide and then I would feel awful after. The more I ate the more I withdrew and the more I withdrew the more I ate and I this horrible cycle continued and I got heavier.
I remember in grade school in my gym class, every year we would do the “President’s Program on Physical Fitness” it was all week long and it consisted of things like push-ups, pull-ups, sit-ups and all different kinds of “ups” I wasn’t good at. The part I dread and hated the most was on one of the days they weighed us in. My gym teacher was particularly sadistic and he weighed us from the lightest to the heaviest kid. I was always the heaviest kid. At the end of the way in day he would yell out, “OK Schmaren and anyone else who is left”, there was never anybody else just me. Everybody would and cheer. I was the heaviest kid in my grade and it sucked.
Over the years I withdrew more until I could not stand the pain anymore. I gave up on myself, I quit and I did not want to live anymore. So one day I found as many pills as I could and put them in a paper cup. I put the cup on my bathroom counter and just stared at for a long time, then I looked at myself in the mirror and I saw, nothing. I was empty and I had nothing left in me. I took all the pills and tried to end my life.
Some how, I survived and it was the turning point in my life. By surviving I realized that I was here for a reason and you know what, you are here for a reason. I began to work on myself. Changing my values and beliefs, the perceptions I had about myself. I used powerful techniques that I studied, learned and developed. I changed my life. I lost almost 180 pounds and I found happiness, love, health, success and more.
