Well I finally got the template done up and coded so I can post in the public blog here now. I plan on posting my workouts, my diet and everything else I feel like posting here. I am now using this site for my own motivation to keep the weight off! For those that don’t know, I lost 100 lbs in 106 days. I had some serious motivation to do so, but I would have even without that motivation. I had someone close to me lose 100 lbs, but it took her 6 months plus to do so. I wanted to do it and do it faster without the help of any trainer. I did and proved to myself that I can do anything I put my mind to. You can to.
Mindset is the most important part of losing weight and keeping it off by far. The workouts are one thing, the diet is a big part but if you don’t have the right mindset, you’re dead in the water. Why do you think the weight loss business is so large? People are constantly on the hunt for simple and easy ways to lose weight. They like the idea of losing but do not want to put in the effort to do so. I’ve heard all kinds of excuses as to why someone can’t, but the truth is those are baloney. You can do anything you put your mind to period. There are no exceptions to this rule.
On my site, this is what I help people with the most and is the reason the community format works. You don’t need someone watching over you during your workout, you only think you do. Once you have a system in place, you can do my program anywhere in the world at anytime. I’ve gone away for a weeks vacation and still stuck to the basic principles behind the program, eating often in smaller amounts and staying active.
Working out doesn’t have to mean going to the gym and lifting weights. Most women, (and some men), are intimidated by even going to the gym. They think that people are judging them. What they don’t understand is that everyone in that gym is there for their health and those people RESPECT others who are also trying to get in shape or keep in shape. They’re not judging you. Yes I’ve heard some horror stories from women who get hit on in gyms, (which is why I refuse to ever do that!), but you’re there to do your workout and even if you’re 300 lbs, people RESPECT that.
When I cross paths with someone who is overweight at the gym or on one of my runs, I have nothing but respect for that person. I respect them because they’re TRYING. They could have just given up and sat on the couch eating chips instead of running or working out, but they made a choice. They decided to try to do something about their situation. It’s not comfortable being fat. I know that, I’ve been there. Your clothes don’t fit right, you look horrible and feel horrible all the time. It’s hard to play with your kids as you get tired easily and sometimes even doing those stairs just winds you enormously. That’s not fun and not a good way to go through life.
So the best part is you can change. You’re human, you have the right. But the key to change is getting in and staying in the right mindset. Don’t look at issues in your life as excuses for you being fat, you’re fat because you have chosen to be fat. (I say that barring any real medical reasons of course). Obesity exists because as a society we are lazy. We prefer to take the path of least resistance. We would rather drive somewhere then walk. We look at movie stars and celebrities and want their bodies yet we don’t want to work for them like those people did. (They put in tons of hours to get that way).
Anyhow, I don’t mean to rant, but I’m very passionate about my new goal. That is to help 1,000,000 lose weight and keep it off. I’m going to do this right here on this site and I want you to be the next success story.
