When people ask how are you doing this - the answer really is simple. Hard work. Dedication. Commitment to myself. Commitment to nourishing my body and exercising.

I so desperately want to tell you that there is an "easy" fix. That this product or that product will solve your problems for life. But truthfully? It really it all about eating well, and exercising your body.

Imagine how cranky I was to finally have to admit that! But it also isn't about any normal everyday exercise - it is about progressive, step-by-step building from ground zero to reset where you are to get where you are going.

YES you can. Yes I can. Yes I am. This is a lifetime journey. This is not a 12 week program. This is a lifetime.

Very few people love themselves enough to dedicate themselves to a lifetime of commitment. We love others enough. We love them enough to marry them forever - but what about loving ourselves enough to commit to ourselves??

I hired a trainer. A talented gifted man who is properly educated in the science behind exercise and the science of how the body uses nutrients to feed itself and develop properly. I could easily justify that spending $600 a month on a trainer is ludicrous. And then I tallied the cost of being morbidly obese. I tallied the meals out, the lunches out, the grocery bill. I tallied the medical bills, the medication monthly, the humiliation and I realized that all of those things were costing me more... and so I married myself. I fell in love with myself. And I invest in myself for the rest of my life. To honor, love, cherish and obey myself. So that when I am 70 I will be riding my bike along the beach. I will be as comfortable as a 70 year old can be.

I hope that I inspire you to start - and if you have started to continue! We are WORTH it!
