I just wanted to thank you all for your continued support here and belief in me! Look at this pic… This feel like world’s apart. My energy level and health conditions are totally different from now and then. In the photo on the left, people around me said that I looked chubby, and I had a 26% of body fat at that time. In the middle of the pic, I lose 33 lbs but I became “skinny fat” and my body fat came down to 21% with high blood cholesterol levels (very high LDL and very low HDL).
Although my BMI appears to be fallen into the standard guideline’s “normal range”, yet, I do not feel good at all. I feel tired every morning even though I’ve slept more than 10 hours per day, I experienced brain fog all the time, feeling demotivated and stressful about life, on off acne problems especially around the mouth and jaw area, and I experience serious bloated stomach and digestive issues (although in this pic I am smiling).
Whereas in the photo on the right, I had just healed from bloating and digestive issues and able to reach my first body composition goals with 15% body fat. But in this pic, the new me is feeling great most of the time, waking up feeling refresh, great energy, I slept well even though I just sleep 6-8 hours per day on average. And I am a more happier person than I used to be and I am able to reverse my bad blood profile. And the fact is that all these successes didn’t happen overnight.
It was only a year ago, the me in the middle of the pic, starting to realise that I have been seeing and dispensing to my patients for a good 8 years in the pharmacy, I am specialised in keep on poisoning my patients, which isn’t always the easiest thing in the world to do and treat. And their body shape goes form the right side of the pic to the left as time goes by… their blood profile never seems to improved.
And the more I dispense, the more I see the same patients over and over and over again, and their list of prescribe medicines just getting longer and longer each and every year, and the more I dispense, the more I feel bad for them, as their health conditions never seems to be able to reverse! They just only get worst over the period of time… and most importantly, it happened to me and my family members as well.
It broke my heart…and really pisses me off… As everything I’ve studied in the past 15 years about nutrition and living a healthy eating lifestyle was utterly wrong. Yes, I made some money working as full time pharmacist, but I feel like I added zero value to anything, to my patients.
At the end of the day I was like, “I’m not really creating value here.” I also have no skill set to help people transform their health and life and also my own life. I’m good at this one thing in the pharmacy, but that doesn’t mean anything anywhere else.
And yeah, I really want to help people and seeing a change in my own life, I believe I had tapped into something I could shared with others, and in the self-transformational journey meeting people who have amazing stories and are inspiring and empowering on a daily basis, that’s what keeps me going every day and it forced me in a positive way to have an all-in decision:
Either I was going to become a successful conventional pharmacist working hard behind the counter or to become an unconventional pharmacist to help impact and truly transform people’s health and energy level, to decide that despite the uncertainty and hardship I would never let up, to keep thrusting my intention into the distance, always going to seek it and find a way to my vision through any obstacle, until I ended up successful… or I was going to end up with the angels for having happily exhausted myself trying to improve our lives and follow my dreams.
So, I decided I was not going to waste my days meandering about or marching under the banner of other people’s rules;
So, I decided I must change the situation and follow my dreams with more focus and intensity;
So, I decided to think bigger, to stop letting myself small-minded;
So, I decided to fight for my creativity and flexibility towards health protocols so that I might make a greater difference in people’s life;
So, I decided not to worry about the critics and instead give my whole heart and effort to those who wanted positivity change in their health and progress in life;
I decided to change myself, mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. And this will be an on-going process. This is a marathon, not a sprint.
And that leads to the photo on the right.
All that has changed, really, is the way how I coach my patients to achieve what they wanted to achieve in their health and life. Now I write blog about my transformational journey and my experiences. I am thankful to have a platform to express myself and share the knowledge that I had and the experiences that I had.
You guys are my motivation for a change. You guys inspire me to move forward. You guys made all that happen because you let a little girl like me follow my dreams and you cheered me on and shared my work.
At the beginning, there were just a few of you, five or ten. And then there were fifty. Then a hundred, and then, as I just stayed with it for 2 years every single day with full faith and joy and a dedication to excellence and service…
And so I say this to you, my friends:
Never limit the vision you have for your life based on your current circumstances or competencies.
You are more powerful, imaginative, and strong than you imagine.
I had no reason to believe that I could reverse my own health issues that has been bugging me for years; no reason to believe that one day I could live my dream as a blogger, an unconventional pharmacist, health and wellness coach to empower people to take control of their own health destiny instead of leaving it on the hands of others; no reason to believe, I suppose, except that my heart told me it was my path, except that my mind invented dreams that felt so real, that faith said all the struggle and the hardship and the toil would be worth it.
And I strongly believe that prevention is always better than cure or reversing chronic diseases.
Please, my friends, believe in and listen to your own body, no matter what, no matter how small it all feels now. It might take some time to be able to hear it, but slowly you will learn and know what your body need, so that you can eat to nourish.
The journey to better health and wealth begins the moment our bias for temporary unhealthy comfort food is overpowered by our drive for challenge and short term pleasure.
And my friends, health is wealth. In order to achieve any valuable goals you need quality energy. And I will teach you how to access the energy that is always available to you in a sustainable way and with that energy, you will then have the capacity to prepare for, recover your body from and adapt in the face of stress, challenge or adversity.
Don’t forget that sustainable health and sustainable body success often come from those seemingly endless, fruitless days and nights of faith, persistency, and discipline. No willpower required. Just create and put yourself in the environment and set yourself up for success and just follow the course till success.
Keep the hard work, keep at it, believe and have faith.
