About a week or so ago, I stumbled across a tweet on Twitter about a personal trainer who purposefully gained wait so he could better sympathize with his clients. Of COURSE this caught my attention and I checked out his site. I was IMMEDIATELY sucked in. Why? Because it only took a few weeks for him to change, and I'm not just talking about his size.
Just reading his blog makes my heart ache and jump at the same time. It's sad to see how someone is effected by their health, but I was excited to see that it's not just me. The feelings I get when overweight make be feel so alone. Know the feeling? The negative habits and self talk can really make a gal nose dive into the dumps. Reading his feelings just validated my own. When overweight, all the feelings that come with it; physcially, emotional, spiritual as well as every other aspect, are actually symptoms of a lifestyle, not the person.
Just turning my thoughts around, to realize it's not me but the choices I make, the lifestyle I'm choosing to live, makes me feel more in control. I instantly want to make better choices, to live a different lifestyle, to create a different reality for myself.
On November 5th, Drew Manning is going to be starting his journey back to health and I'm so excited to be able to follow along. Be sure to check out his site at www.fit2fat2fit.com and his most recent YOUTUBE video. His blog is as insightful as it is entertaining.
GO DREW!! :)
