SIXTY, THREE TIMES TWENTY, SIX TENS, IT ALL ADDS UP TO 60 POUNDS OF UNWANTED FAT GONE!
I am so happy and surprised that I have lost 60 pounds in 90 days. Don’t get me wrong, I have worked hard, been honest with myself, learned a great deal about fitness & nutrition, and had a good attitude throughout this journey. I had mental goals that I thought were attainable and aggressive. After starting my journey on March 2, 2009 I thought if I pushed myself it would be wonderful if I lost 40 pounds by May 19th, my birthday, and 50 pounds by June 13th, the first day of Camp Kemo! As you know, I hit 50 pounds lost on May 19th and June 13th could bring a much bigger surprise.
Less weight and better fitness makes it much easier to deal with life’s challenges> Working toward my next career, job hunts, the day-to-day problems we all deal with, bills, politics, loving family through the good and tough times, and more. Sometimes it is easy to allow yourself to fall into poor fitness and health while dealing with life’s ups and downs. I have found that no matter what happens, I need to stay focused on my fitness. I know from plenty of experience that it is easy to say I don’t have time to get in shape, eat right or just plain take care of myself. All I can say now is if I want to have the LIFETIME I deserve; the time I invest in fitness now will serve me well toward having a long and quality life.
How can we put this in perspective? If someone told you that you could add a year to your life by being active and exercising an hour a day this year, what would you do? Hmmmmm, 365 hours gets me 8760 hours! What should I do? If it was money and you were investing in the stock market and I told you to invest $41.67 in a certain stock and you could get up to $1,000 in return, what would you do? I know what you’re thinking, where did he get these figures? There is plenty of research showing that good diet and fitness habits add years to your life. The numbers vary from study to study. The numbers I used are just food for thought, but there are studies that show a 10-12 year longer life expectancy in healthy fit people. MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE!
