A mother’s decision can change her children’s lives forever, and that’s what one woman did: decide to finally get healthier in order to be there for her children.
Alena Shifrin was once a 310-pound mother who wasn’t healthy at all. Her cholesterol levels were really soaring high, and her physician husband warned her that her weight could actually kill her. She was even denied to get life insurance because of her health status.
Alena became depressed about her situation and realized that she had to take action. She then decided to change her life and finally lose weight. She wanted to be healthier for her husband and for her daughters. She wanted to see them grow up and be there for them in the most important events of their lives.
I want to be at their wedding, you know, 20 years from now… I don’t want them to have to bury their mom. I was just so tired living like this. So tired of being overweight. Tired of being a prisoner in my own body.
With determination, discipline, and by attending Zumba classes, Alena was finally able to shed off pounds. It was not an easy start as shyness took over her. Fortunately, her Zumba instructor Shahidah Ansari noticed her and inspired her, and that’s how 155-pound weight loss journey started.
It was completely worth climbing the mountain. Because at the top, I’m living it with them, not just watching from the side.
Watch how Zumba helped Alena lose weight and gain her life back here:
Deaf Man Discovers He’s Going To Be A Father. His Emotional Reaction Is Priceless!
Deaf dad discovers for the first time that he is going to become a father!
One of the best feelings in the world is knowing that you are going to become a parent. We've seen many videos of wives surprising their husbands with the baby news. All of them are touching, especially because men rarely express their dramatic side. However, we think we've found the best yet in a video uploaded by soon-to-be mom Brittany Welch. You see, her husband David is deaf.
The concept is very simple. David was handed a paper bag of "gifts" by his wife. The said gifts were individually wrapped and each suggests clue toward the big reveal.
David uses American Sign Language to communicate with his wife throughout the clip.
This Simple Trash-and-Oil-Sucking Bucket Just Might Be The Answer To Ocean Pollution
This simple invention can save the world, one piece of waste at a time.
Australian surfers Andrew Turton and Pete Ceglinski may just have saved the world from pollution. Ocean pollution, that is.
Called the Seabin, the device they invented works like a suction. First, it sucks in water and trash, then traps the garbage it collects together with the water. Once all the garbage has been removed, the water is transferred into a pump where oil particles are separated from the water. After the procedure - voila! Water comes back to the sea devoid of trash and oil particles.
Australian surfers Andrew Turton and Pete Ceglinski just developed a simple contraption that can trap garbage floating in the ocean.
