4K Community Cup winner for March 2021
Tom Whitton

 
Tom Whitton is currently on his second stint as a 4Korners board member, serving from 2013 to 2016 and then rejoining in 2018 when he returned from out-of-town work. He also served as a City Councillor from 2009-2013 and is the current president of the Canada Day Committee in Deux-Montagnes. Tom recently decided to write a series of essays that detail his love/hate relationship with food and the impact years of negative self-talk had on his journey. When I spoke to Tom about deciding to write all this down and share what is a pretty personal journey, I wondered if it was for a sense of accountability. He said it was more a desire to effect positive change in his community. Tom clarified that he does not fancy himself a Tony Robbins by any stretch but thought that if something he says clicks for someone, then why not?

I do find it a rare and wonderful thing when men decide to share any level of vulnerability publicly and truly believe that the world would be a better place if more men felt comfortable in doing so. To read what Tom writes about self-talk that went from superficial criticism to a deeper, darker place, I couldn’t help thinking what a brave and amazing thing he was doing at a time when so many people are struggling in the silence of their own homes.  

For Tom, the pandemic was a catalyst that actually helped him change some habits and put him back on track for getting his weight and diabetes under control. He admits that the internal dialogue regarding his self-worth is a battle he fights daily. Maybe sharing his story can be that catalyst for others who will recognize some familiar aspects to his story. For his ongoing contribution to his community and bravely putting himself out there, Tom is our 4Korners Community Cup winner for March. You can read more about his journey with food and negative self-talk in the March issue of Main Street where you will find the first of the three-part essay.
