We are talking about re-vamping your health and fitness with Author and Transformational speaker — Mylitta Butler.

“You can only be one of the two, Os. You can be obese or old, but not both.”

These words from her doctor became Butler’s wake-up call to change her health and fitness levels.

When speaking to groups of people desperate to shed excess weight, Butler offers empathy and an understanding of where the weight gain stems. After all, she too was overweight, pre-diabetic, and experiencing high cholesterol and high blood pressure. Butler was once where the reader is now.

The weight loss love letter

“I know a big part of your weight problem stems from your past. You have experienced some unpleasant situations. There was dysfunction, feelings of brokenness, and inadequacies. Verbal and physical abuse at times. Which led to feelings of shame and worthlessness that set in, like seeds planted long ago.” Author — Mylitta  Butler

Butler offers a layperson’s explanation of how our issues — when left unexamined and unhealed are in our tissues. She incorporated the research of Dr. Van Der Kolk in her book.

Bessel Van Der Kolk, M.D. is touted as a pioneering researcher who has transformed our understanding of trauma and healing. Dr. Van Der Kolk’s book “The Body Keeps the Score” is a psychological trauma study. No matter how small or monumental, abuse and neglect affect the body emotionally and physically.

“Research from new disciplines has revealed that trauma produces actual physiological changes, including a recalibration of the brain’s alarm system, an increase in stress hormone activity, and alterations in the system that filters relevant information from irrelevant. We now know that trauma compromises the brain area that communicates the physical, embodied feeling of being alive.” Author — Bessel  Van Der Kolk, M.D.

Dr. Van Der Kolk’s neuroscience research has demonstrated the physical effects of trauma on the human brain and body and how a combination of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), biofeedback, yoga, meditation, recreational therapy, and medication — for example, can help patients to recover.

  1. I think Butler’s advice is very valuable for people who want to lose weight because she has experienced the process of weight loss by herself so that she knows well about their dilemma. What she puts forward is not only specific methods for weight loss but also the causes of obesity. Also, although I have no plans to lose weight, her story still inspires me. This is a struggle between Butler and himself. She found the cause of obesity and firmly overcome the difficulties. When I face other difficulties, I will be inspired to think of Butler’s story.

  2. I am so impressed that she achieved what she wanted to be in such a short period of time. The story of Mylitta is inspiring because she pulled herself out of the comfort zone and put effort for herself to break through the limits of her potential while remaining both physically and mentally strong. Also, it is interesting to see that trauma has such a deadly effect on our body. I am so surprised by by her mental resiliency while on a diet and her story tells us about how we should manage ourself in a time of difficulty and win against our battle.
