Why Am I Passionate About Your Health and Fitness Mindset?
You might wonder why I’m so passionate about helping you create the mindset necessary to have sustainable health, fitness, and a high quality of life? And how I can say so confidently that with the right mindset, you can certainly have your health, fitness, and quality of life exactly where you want them?
I used to weigh around 260+ lbs. The shape I was in used to be round. I went to a doctor one day and he said something that was really hard for me to hear. He told me I was grossly obese.
Have You Ever Been in Denial?
I thought, “What are you talking about? I was never grossly obese!” My idea of grossly obese was a lot different than what I looked like. But then I went home and I thought about it. And when I looked in the mirror, I realized that he was right. I was really overweight and it was very unhealthy. I had narrow sloping shoulders, a wide waist, a huge stomach, love handles that were so deep you could take a sharpie marker, put it in sideways, and the folds of fat would keep it in place…
I decided that I was unwilling to accept that from me. I was unwilling to be that person. I wanted to be healthy and strong again. When I was younger, in middle & high school, I was all about being strong and being healthy and somewhere along the line I’d lost sight of that aspect of myself. I’d lost the drive. I’d lost the internal feeling of what it was like to be heathy.
After the doctor told me that I was grossly obese I went and took a really long look in the mirror. And I decided I was unwilling to accept that from me anymore! I was only willing to accept the best from me with my health and fitness.
Then The Truth Sinks In
That was 15 years ago. Since then I’ve maintained really good shape, really good conditioning. There have been times when my weight crept back up a little bit because I was being distracted by life. But I never got back up over 210 lbs before I reigned it in and got things back into good shape.
The original weight loss I did was from around 260 lbs down to 185 lbs in 6.5 or 7 months and for the most part I’ve kept it off since then.
This is about how to create that fitness mindset. The fitness mindset is what’s help me stay in much better shape ever since dropping all that old weight. If I had just said, “Oh! I’ve got to lose weight!” and that was the goal, then what happens when the weight is gone?
Where is the driving force, the long-term vision once the weight is gone? It goes away for most people because they’ve achieved the goal and then tend to relax. If I would have set a goal that I wanted to get down to a certain weight, then I don’t know what my long-term results would have been.
I Want to Have a Fitness Lifestyle!
But I never set a goal about the weight I wanted to be. Instead, I changed it to, “I want a fitness lifestyle.”
I want a healthy and fit lifestyle, was the change I made. That’s a very powerful change for you to make.
I’d like to help you learn how you can create a healthy and fit lifestyle, how you can start reaching the health and fitness goals that you’ve set for yourself that have seemed out of reach. Maybe you’ve been up and down with your health and fitness. Inconsistency comes from an unsupportive mindset. When you have a mindset that supports what you want, it’s much easier to achieve the results you desire.
You’ve heard people say, “I’ve got to get in my summer shape…”
Screw That! Get in great shape and stay there long-term by changing your mindset!
It’s okay for good shape to be different. We all have our opinions about what being in good shape means. Some people want to be really lean. Some people are okay with a little more bodyfat. Some people want to be really strong. Some value endurance over all other aspects. Some want to be muscular, lean, and strong. Whatever your idea of being in great shape is for you is perfect for you!
