Forget the Shortcuts, Change comes with Commitment and Support
Imagine sitting in an arena with 5000 like minded, positive and energetic people gathered together for the same purpose. The feelings of excitement and inspiration were palpable. I recently had the opportunity to attend the Team Beachbody Company’s annual Summit Convention in June. The amount of attendees had doubled from the previous year. A testament to the fact the word is spreading that people are acknowledging the need for improving their health and doing something about it.
This type of gathering is filled with celebrity trainer workouts with Tony Horton, Shaun T and Chalene Johnson, workshops, company updates and of course, parties. We were in Vegas, after all! For me, the highlight was witnessing so many transformation stories. Believe me, I am a sucker for a great story of commitment and success! Maybe it is the nurse in me, but to see a person change from an unhealthy, hopeless and sad individual to a new and improved, happier self, I want to cheer along with everyone else.
Two such people were awarded $100,000 each for their efforts in losing weight and improving their health. Both winners just happened to achieve this with P90X and Shakeology. Kathy from MI lost 130 pounds and Neal from TN lost a whopping 242 pounds! Absolutely amazing!
Their reasons for beginning their journeys were similar to those you may hear everyday, “I needed to lose weight”, “I was unhappy and embarrassed”, “I wanted to be a better role model for my kids”, My doctor told me I would not live long”, “I was going to lose my job”, ” I needed to gain control”. For these people and all the ones I met, a magic diet pill or surgical procedure was not the answer. It always comes down to hard work, eating smarter and making better lifestyle changes. It is not about deprivation but more about educating yourself yourself to what may be a better choice. It is never too late to change!! At 50, I drew a line in the sand and said “Enough is enough”! Time to CHANGE4GOOD!
YOU can do it too! A pill will never be an alternative to the decision, the commitment you need to make for yourself, to take responsibility for the past and the changes to come! Let me show you healthier options. That is what I am here for!
