It's not about the numbers, it's your
Today obesity, diabetes and heart disease run through us at
epidemic levels, Why? The answer lies not in the thousands
of different kinds of diet, weight loss and workout programs
offered, the answer lies in the approach. But,
no one wants to talk about that. Do you ever wonder why that
Do we not want to know, or could it have something to do with
the doctor's and those in the fitness industry not wanting
to explain the best approach to us? Maybe they don't even
know the right way themselves? Deep down we want and need
too know. Why do I say this? Twenty years of managing health
clubs and dealing with doctor's tells me, that if they told
you this, then there may be a chance you would not need them.
Sounds crazy doesn't it. But, true!
"While exercise and eating guidelines are based on good scientific
principles, they do not go along with human nature or common
sense. Recent history is telling us this; we are better off
with encouraging the mediocre people who are willing to include
exercise in their daily lives, rather than cramming guidelines
down throats that are far beyond the reach of the majority
of people. In the end, keeping things simple combined with
support usually works better."

Over the years most of us who are out of shape and want to
lose a few pounds and feel a little better about ourselves,
developed many different behaviors toward exercise and food.
Some are good ones, but most are just barriers we have built
in our minds. I guess you could also chalk it up to pure laziness.
However, the bottom line is we are going to continue down
the path of destruction until someone comes up with a plan
to help people deal with the reasons behind such behaviors.
No pill will do it long term, no eight minute ab's routine
will concur the patterns; the only thing it will take is introspection.
But, do we want to hear that? Maybe, that is just too painful
to even think about right now.
Do you mean I will have to take a good long look at myself?
Maybe so. At the end of the day, you are going to have to
ask yourself, "Do I deal with it now or do I deal with the
consequences later? Because that's really want it comes down
to. Face the truth on your terms today, or face the reality
on life's terms down the road in a hospital bed.
I chose to deal with it now.
So where is the magic? It's not in the pills or programs being
fed to us today and it's also not found so much in the numbers
on an exercise chart, the amount of weight you lift, or the
miles on a treadmill.
Our success lies in:
- How willing we are to deal with the roots of the unwanted
- Figuring out what truly motivates us?
- Developing a great support system for us personally?
- Figure out the emotions behind the food.
- Simplifying the workout program to fit your lifestyle.
Do we really want to continue to put a bandage on bleeding
artery? Or do we get serious and do some mental surgery that
takes care of the weight problem once in for all.
I say go for it! What do you have to lose except a few pounds?
