Does that negativity prevent you from moving forward in your life?
Have you set goals? If so, have you accomplished any of them?
Do you need to get motivated?
Lizzie Velasquez opens her soul and shares her remarkable story, giving us an inspiring testimony. She reveals intimate details about her struggles living in a society that places great emphasis on outer appearance.
Let Lizzie inspire you! In this interview Lizzie details her life experience living with a rare syndrome that does not allow her to gain weight. Lizzie’s undiagnosed syndrome prevents her body from storing fat and building muscle. This syndrome, which is known to affect only two others worldwide, has made her life a study in contradictions.
Lizzie eats whatever she wants, yet cannot move a weigh scale past 60 or so pounds. In a time when many people change their appearance in order to feel accepted, she has accepted herself with extraordinarily positive self-esteem. Her attitude, not her syndrome, is contagious.
Hear about the negativity, teasing and bullying she encounters on a daily basis, and how she deals with it. Despite a lifetime of difficulties both emotionally and physically, Lizzie accomplished all of her dreams by the age of 21. You can do it too!
