Tierra Thomas Weight Loss Struggle

I thought it was about time to share some truth and insight to my weight loss success with Nature’s Way of Life (NWOL). I have struggled with sustained weight loss, not because Nature’s Way of Life does not work, but because I have not been on NWOL for almost a year! I have been on a whirl wind in my life and not focused on my health, but now I know that is is time for a change again. Nature’s Way of Life continues to transform my life. Although I veered off course, I am back on NWOL for LIFE!

Weight Regain

Weight Regain of 25 pounds. Total Weight 145 pounds, 5’2

After losing a total of 55 pounds and regaining 25 of those, so many things felt wrong, my job, my home life, my personal life and it all took a toll on my overall health. Not even realizing this was happening I am back to 145 pounds at the height of only 5’2. Although I am not back at my 175 pounds I still fell disappointed in myself. I know it’s time to get rid of my excuses and live the life that will produce the life I want.

I want to share this story because I want to use this as an opportunity to re-channel my energy to transform my life again, spiritually, mentally and physically. As some would say, I lost my mojo and I am ready and willing to get it back. Today I decided to be vegan again, unless I am out with others who are cooking for me, to avoid special request. In addition to that I want to lose 40 pounds by my birthday next year April 22, 2014 coupled with toning up this bod into a solid machine. I tried everything else and I know nothing else will work like NWOL. It’s natural, fresh and will increase my life expectancy.

I believe this happened so I can share my story and strengthen my mind. Time to move forward into a life long journey of feeling comfortable in my skin because I am who I truly want to be.

Soon to come….after pictures.

Quote of the Day!

“Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly, and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story. Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love – for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment is it perennial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you from misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labours and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.”

I was doing some research on the status of this United States epidemic. CNN Health reports the progression of the Obesity Fight.

Click here to see the Unites States wide spread fight against obesity.

25-30% of people are obese in more than 20 states According to this report. This information was retrieved from the Center of Disease Control (CDC). Here is a chart that shows the 2010 State Obesity Rates.

2010 State Obesity Rates
State % State % State % State %
Alabama 32.2 Illinois 28.2 Montana 23.0 Rhode Island 25.5
Alaska 24.5 Indiana 29.6 Nebraska 26.9 South Carolina 31.5
Arizona 24.3 Iowa 28.4 Nevada 22.4 South Dakota 27.3
Arkansas 30.1 Kansas 29.4 New Hampshire 25.0 Tennessee 30.8
California 24.0 Kentucky 31.3 New Jersey 23.8 Texas 31.0
Colorado 21.0 Louisiana 31.0 New Mexico 25.1 Utah 22.5
Connecticut 22.5 Maine 26.8 New York 23.9 Vermont 23.2
Delaware 28.0 Maryland 27.1 North Carolina 27.8 Virginia 26.0
District of Columbia 22.2 Massachusetts 23.0 North Dakota 27.2 Washington 25.5
Florida 26.6 Michigan 30.9 Ohio 29.2 West Virginia 32.5
Georgia 29.6 Minnesota 24.8 Oklahoma 30.4 Wisconsin 26.3
Hawaii 22.7 Mississippi 34.0 Oregon 26.8 Wyoming 25.1
Idaho 26.5 Missouri 30.5 Pennsylvania 28.6

The data shown in these maps were collected through the CDC’s Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS), on the basis of self-reported weight and height. Each year, state health departments use standard procedures to collect data through a series of monthly telephone interviews with U.S. adults. Prevalence estimates generated for the maps may vary slightly from those generated for the states by the BRFSS as slightly different analytic methods are used (CDC, 2010).

This is why it is our mission to be reverse this preventable disease. Too many people are dying or carry diseases that are brought upon them by obesity. Now, is the time for us to come together to fight obesity and disease.

LET’S DO THIS TOGETHER!

Nature’s Way of Life Purpose

The purpose of Nature’s Way of Life is to reverse obesity, disease and help individuals achieve optimal health. You way ask how or maybe even why.

Here let’s explain:

As anyone may think, who are we to say nature’s way of life is the way of life. We say this because we are proven testimony that Nature’s Way of Life works. There is no way to sugar coat this of justify our reasoning, other than living proof that nature’s way of life can reverse diabetes, cure disease, help eliminate heart disease, prevent disease and bring the body back to its natural state of function. Our bodies work on there own without assistance, yet now we relay on assistance just to live from day to day. Let’s take this journey to our natural state of existence, only difference is the reality of the world today. The world today is full of restaurants, grocery stores, quick marts and so on; I will not say it will not be a challenge, but the choice is up to each individual. It is at the point now that each individual must choose, life, death or a life full of health struggles. Let the choice be easy and choose life.

Nature’s Way of Life purpose is essentially to help the world see the benefits of a vegetarian diet. Vegetarian, vegans and raw food vegans can meet all of their nutritional daily values with well-balanced nutrition which is received from food choices. We do not say these things to downplay any other weight loss or nutrition plan, our mere purpose is to change the world through nutrition and health. Bringing the world back to it’s primitive state of existence.

Nature is simply a primitive state of existence, untouched and uninfluenced by civilization or artificiality. Sounds unreasonable, but another reality is what our reality is doing to the human existence. Humans have the intelligence to make a choice and see what we do to ourselves and others. So, lets take that idea and run with it. Why should we choose to ruin our existence by putting chemicals in our bodies as food. NOW, is the time to take this big step to live a life free of disease and medicine and step into Nature’s Way of Life.
