Thanksgiving is a time to remember to give thanks. It is an easy mistake to become so preoccupied with weight loss, that you forget to value yourself and be proud of your talents. I spotted this You tube video on Facebook of a man with a beautiful voice, who had lost 400 lbs, after weighing an incredible 900 lbs.
You will probably notice and find irritating as I did the obvious surprise in the judges’ and audience’s faces, that this man who is clearly morbidly obese had such a beautiful voice.
What really impressed me though was the man’s quiet confidence and dignity, the gratitude and love he openly expressed to his wife, and the calm way he accepted compliments from the judges. It was a great reminder that weight does not and should not define you. You are more than that. Check it out!
