@she_is_fit: Getting in shape is an evolution and the far left was by far the hardest time in my life. One year after my brothers death, I stood outside and took my before pic. It was embarrassing, it was hard, it was humbling, it was brutal and I cried like you would not believe. But, it was simply one thing…. a before pic.
I hid from that picture for so long because it was truthfully, the hardest ‘pill’ to swallow. How did I let myself ‘go’ like that? Why didn’t I take better care of myself? When did I lose sight with reality and live in an illusion?
Fact is, I am human. I am human and we error all the time, and this is what happens when you fall into a deep state of depression. My brothers death messed me up for a long time and it took a ton of courage to take that photo. It can literally stop you in your tracks when you are faced with reality, but, I looked at that photo as a starting point and that I would never go back; that photo was taken on a Sunday and Monday, I hit it hard.
I stepped on the scale at 178 lbs at 39% bodyfat and 18 weeks later, I was 53 lbs lighter. Now, I look at at that before photo differently.
Adversity hits us all, no one is immune to it. NO one. We all face it with different reactions. And it doesn’t make anyone right or wrong, it just clarifies that I (we) are human. But once the air clears and we see the proaction we need to take to change, it is then, our responsibility to change it all…..that is where it begins. Today, I help people get in shape and get them on the right path!
