Here is what is happening on this page. It is the photo and blurb story of my
body's transformation from fat to physically fit. My heaviest weight was
That was a wake up call. I am terrified of hitting 300 pounds so it was a
shock of cold water in my face so to speak. I've watched my mother's body
break down from the weight of the fat that she carried around on her body
for years. She was a bit over 300 lbs and it really did a number on her.
Our body compositions are significantly different, but I am carrying the
weight of 2 people on my body and it's time to do something about it.
I started seriously looking for a plan, program, something to help me gain
control of my out of control weight. I looked at Weight Watchers, TOPS,
Over-eaters Anonymous, Bariatric surgery, and I don't remember how
many different types of diets.
I considered trying to get to a gym. I live way out on a ranch so getting to a
gym to workout is just not a viable option. At least not in my mind it isn't.
The thing is, I am not interested in just losing fat. I want to be able to enjoy
my life. Be active, physically fit. I want those 6 pack abs; yeah that's right
I want 6 pack abs. I want to be able to walk a marathon, to ride a century,
and to walk without my thighs rubbing. Forget rubbing, I want to be able to
walk without my thighs touching.
Hey, you know what I want to be able to go out and have fun. Go to
Cheyenne Frontier days and enjoy some concerts, shows, and rodeos. Yes I
know I could go anyway, but frankly I could do without the heat gald, and
heat exhaustion from carrying so much fat. I want to go to Universal
Studios and check it out. Will I now, no I won't because my butt is to big to
fit comfortably in a plane seat. No thank you, I don't care to fly stuffed in
there seat cheek to seat cheek. Be great to go shopping and not have my
knees screaming because they've been carrying 2 people around all day.
You know what, I love cute shoes, do I wear them now. No, I go for the
sturdy ones to try and protect my feet. Poor abused feet.
What I don't want is to lose a bunch of fat and have no muscle tone, and
skin hanging everywhere. Ugh! If I can avoid having to have surgery to
tighten up skin that is what I am going to do. Actually that is one of the
major reasons I was looking for a total package to fitness.
For me it's not about getting skinny. For me there is no point in being
skinny and not having health and energy to enjoy life. Thanks but no thanks,
I've already done the too exhausted to move thing.
It's about being healthy and physically fit. Feeling good, and being able to
enjoy living my life. Frankly carrying around an extra 150 plus pounds is
exhausting, miserable, and damaging to my body.
I was pretty excited when I came across Beachbody. Wow it had
everything I was looking for. Great workouts, online chats with trainers,
message boards full of people, an online gym, so no matter where I live I
can find folks to workout with. Then to top it off they have the coaches
program. You know it's great to help other people along the way. Pretty
nice to get paid for it too...lol...
If you decide to buy some workout DVD's it would be great if you bought
them from my Team Beachbody Website. Hey if you decide you would like
to earn some money helping other people get fit physically as well as
financially; let me know; I'll be happy to help you make it happen.
Take a look at the 15 minute presentation and give me a call.
