Happy new year everyone! I hope that 2018 is turning out to be everything you wanted it to be. I have a few goals this year to accomplish. One is to be more consistent with my blog posts. Another is to practice more of what I preach to others, and I also want to be successful in a new venture I'm on. As you can tell by the blog title, I recently became a health and fitness coach. I know you are probably thinking the same thing I was when I decided to do this "why the hell would anyone who is trying to lose weight, is obese, and struggles themselves try and coach others????" Well the answer is simple...at least for me.
One of the biggest struggles I have with the health and fitness world is the lack of anyone really and truly understanding the struggle of an overweight person. When you have more than just the typical 10-20 pounds to lose, when you have a medical condition that makes it feel like it's impossible to lose weight, or you just aren't born naturally thin, it makes it difficult to find the right person to help you with your goals. With the exception of 1 personal trainer I've met, I've never had trainers or nutritionists who were previously extremely overweight or had true weight problems. One thing that I've experienced over the years with personal trainers and nutritionists is they NEVER understood where I was coming from. I was lucky enough this past year (after many many years of trying) to get linked up with a great nutritionist and fantastic personal trainer. Unfortunately, my nutritionist moved away and personal training gets expensive over time. While I was having great results. It was something that I knew wasn't sustainable for me. I had to reevaluate what I was doing, why I was doing it, and what my new focus would be. If you read my last blog, I was quite frustrated.
I've decided to put all the frustration I was having into something that is actually worth while. I decided that in order to make myself accountable, keep myself accountable, and to really and truly stay motivated, I need to really put myself out there. I needed to be an example. I decided to become a health and fitness coach for all those reasons. I've been forced to stay on track because I have an audience, I have others that depend on me and are looking at me for guidance. It's much like sponsors for AA (Alcoholics Anonymous), Narcanon (drug rehabilitation) , and so many others where many of the leaders are recovered alcoholics or substance abusers. They need to stay accountable. They get a sense of self worth by helping others, and that is exactly why I'm doing this. If you need help staying accountable, staying motivated, need guidance, I can help!!
Q- What are you selling because I'm not buying it and don't try to sell me stuff
A- I'm NOT trying to sell anyone anything. I've found a program and a product that I'm absolutely in love with that I will tell everyone about. If you want to buy it, you can, if you don't, I'm not pestering you :P I'm NOT a salesperson, I'm just passionate about things that help me.
