Lifestyle & Fitness Update # 11 - November 10, 2012 Get Out of the Mind, Notice & Take Action

I (LisaGou - subscribe) talk about how I've been holding back from making videos and what I imagine is the leading factor in me not editing and posting the last few videos I made.

Amazing. Thank you for your honesty. You are not alone, for sure.

It's VERY easy to get trapped in our heads.....and it can be really scary in there. I tend to retreat there and I fight to get out of my head daily......and I also struggle to stay in the present moment: not going over the past (usually, in my case, with regrets and what ifs) or projecting the future. The older I get I realize by doing either of those you take away from the beauty of the right here and right now - and learning to love yourself with where you are at this very moment is the best thing you can do for yourself. NONE of us are perfect. I am learning to laugh at my flaws and to be kind with myself. As this happens my relationships with people are getting better and I am also able to not dwell on those people who bring negative energies into my life.

In response to the people who send you negative emails - to the heck with them. It's so easy for people to hide behind their key boards and spout hateful things with anonymity. Bravo for you putting your true authentic self out there!


Your video is so real and so great. Keep doing whatever videos speak to you. And if for some reason you don't feel like making a video right now, that's ok too.

Have an awesome day!

Hi Lisa, I haven't watched your previous videos but I can say that this video touched me. You're sincere and vulnerable, it's pretty rare to see that in people on You Tube. I can also relate to your self loathing. I gained a lot of weight in a very short time due to meds. I had never been overweight before but I never really liked my body either. Now when I look back at pictures of myself, I think I looked fabulous and can't believe I didn't see it. Everything is difficult in this body of mine these days and I'm deeply ashamed and angry with myself and the hospital that put me in this situation. I've tried lots of different things to lose the weight permanently but failed so far. I think my mental attitude is part of the problem. I need to accept where I'm at and how I look. I need to let go of the bitterness to let go of the weight. Easier said than done though. I don't know what you should do videos about, ultimately it's up to you. Not everything on You Tube has to be positive and inspirational all the time though. Real people and real struggles are things that a lot of people can relate to too.

One more thing, anyone who says you're too fat to dance is a narrow-minded idiot who have watched too much MTV. Some of the sexiest and most sensual dancers I've ever seen, have been overweight women. In some cultures that's the norm. And they can move!

Wow, thank you so much, ladies! There's truly nothing like authentic, loving support and I feel that from you all! <3 ~XoX~
