Yes, It’s Worth It!
Here’s another success story to remind you that what your doing is worthwhile. When you see the transformation below, many of you will think, “Wow! I wish I had results like that.” Stop wishing. There is no magic here. This is just another story of someone who wanted these results more than she was willing to suffer the alternatives.
Angela has 2 girls, one 4 and one 8 months. Since all the way back in high school she dieted by restricting calories, sometimes by denying herself whole meals. She told me, “There was a period of time in high school when I was anorexic. I was never successful at dieting for very long because I was always hungry and miserable, and I inevitably ended up gaining the weight back plus a couple extra pounds. It was very disheartening and I have carried a lot of guilt throughout my life due to my repeated failures.” Well, short story shorter, here she is today.
These results happened in approximately 10 weeks. You can read her whole testimonial on my gym’s web site here. No magic. No tricks or gimmicks. Just good old fashioned dedication applied to human nutrition and sensible exercise.
Alright, let me get to the point that I’d like to make today. Let’s pretend that a curse was cast on Angela and she was magically returned to her “before” picture state in the blink of an eye. And let’s also pretend that the same curse would limit her future success such that it would take her exactly 5 years of paleo and exercise to return to her pre-curse fit body, even though it only took her 10 weeks last time. Do you know what her response would be, after a little disappointment, of course? I am absolutely positive she would say something like, “Can I get started today?”
Why should her reaction this time be different from all the other times she lost and gained weight? Because now she knows what it’s suppose to feel like. She is actually healthy and fit and she knows, without anyone pointing it out, that she can keep this body forever. Tricks and gimmicks don’t feel like that.
Just some more food for thought. Go forth and be awesome.
