I just wanted to take a moment and brag on one of my clients. I met her and started training with her last year. At that time I could that she wanted to make a change phsically, but hadn’t made the same committment mentally. You can honestly do all the exercising in the world, but unless and until you resolve the issues that surround your weight issues, you will not hit your goals.
Anyways, she and I had a little groove going, but then she fell off for a few months. At the beginning of this year though, she started back hard (like most resolutioners do), but there was something different about her disposition. Her energy seemed lighter and she definitely seemed resolved to lose the weight. So of course, I was ready and willing to do my part. And we started working out again, and I gave her some food pointers, and she was 100% on board with the process. (I was loving her.)
I had found out that she had never been on an airplane or taken a trip. Well early in this journey, she told me that she was going to go to the Essence Festival in Atlanta THIS YEAR and that she was going to get down to a size 16 before she went. (She started out at a size 22.) I spoke to her yesterday, a short 6 months later, and she told me that she was down to a size 16 and had all of her accomodations booked for the Essence Festival. I was super stoked for her!
Setting BIG goals and doing what you must to hit them can seriously boost your self confidence that just about anything is possible…and anything really is possible!
