About my Bone Disease (Oi)
@oi.strength

(Oi) Osteogenesis impefecta is a bone disease

that affects me greatly on the everyday basis. I was born with this condition, I believe I have type 3 OI. Since birth, I've broken bones. Til this day, I've fractured less & less every year thanks to working out.

Ever since I was born, it was difficult for me to live life happily.

I was always fracturing if I wasn't caution; I was always on alert, my mom was always watching my back & I always worried if I was going to break a bone & sometimes out of nowhere when it's not obvious, I break bones which hurts me mentally. Growing up, attending schools, hanging out with friends has never been different for me. I always wanted to be with the 'normal people' & my mom always pushed me, embraced who I wanted to be/what I wanted to do. They never treated me differently from my brothers whom are normal (no condition). During childhood, that was my peak of fracturing bones. I've fractured so many bones & had so many surgeries that I couldn't keep track of how many I've had. I was hospitalized for days; My parents stressing which stressed me out; I was bed bounded for days, weeks; I went through depression; I've gained weight; I've lost weight; I've been mentally hurt. I've seen & experienced almost everything that a worst nightmare can present. Through these experiences, I've realized that life ain't nothing but a thang & that if you wanted to become better, life wouldn't grant you it, you needed to do it on your own & so I did. But what also kills my joy is that my activities are limited, I need to be extra caution depending on the situation(s). Sometimes I cannot go to certain places, Sometimes I'm left out.
Osteogenesis imperfecta will never go away. It affects me daily. I'm still cautions til this day about what I'm doing & what my next move is going to be. I never can settle & relax my mind (unless i'm resting) without thinking of my moves.
OI won't bring me down, it'll make me tougher.

OMAD Conclusion (One Meal A Day)

My Conclusion on OMAD (One Meal A Day)@Delicatenutrition

Before I started OMAD, I had to think of why I was doing it. People saw benefits from eating once a day and I wanted to see results from it. OMAD is a 23:1 Ratio, meaning you only eat ONCE Per day. There's countless of benefits or reasons why people eat once a day. Some reasons are health benefits, eating restrictions, dieting, improving body fat burn (FAT LOSS) and much more. I wanted to perform OMAD to see if thus was true.

Inspired me to Do the OMAD [lifestyle]
"There’s high level athletes like Rhonda Rousey, and Herschel Walker that has been eating this way for years. We eat a lot more than what we need in this country.. I’ve been training and eating this way for some time, and I promise, I feel so much better eating this way.. And my mind thinks a lot more clear." Here's a Video that got me thinking

BEST WAY TO LOSE WEIGHT AND STAY LEAN WHILE BEING IN A WHEELCHAIR ♿

Wheelchair Weight Loss Tips   How to Lose Weight in a WheelchairFrom a Chubby Boy to Being a Shredded, 6 pack Abs, in A Wheelchair ♿I wasborn with a disease that put me in a wheelchair. Being a wheelchair user is hard to go about losing weight because we are limited, meaning, it is harder for us to get some type of physical exercise in depending on your condition. Physical exercise is one of the requirements in order to lose weight. Personally, depending on your situation, that should not be an excuse to be overweight or underweight; You must be disciplined and committed if you are serious about losing weight and staying lean!

Duringmy childhood, I was kinda fat, I'd say. Everyone was grabbing my cheeks, just like you see it everywhere with babies (and kids with chubby cheeks 😋), I wasn't annoyed by it at all until I realized I am [overweight]. I saw that I had a fat pack under my chin/my neck area, my stomach was bulged out, and I knew my body was not liking it. I did not ca…

If you're trying to focus on weight management, understand nutrition and what food contains what.
In this day in age, a lot of people are going out to grab a quick meal, no biggie right? But those meals may contain a lot of unnecessary calories - packed with [excess] carbs, sugar, sodium, and more. With all these excessive additives, you're in the danger zone to gain weight. The reason why people gain weight so easily is because they don't manage there intake of macro's. Fats, carbs, and protein.
