How can you understand?

After reading a comment from a fellow team members who aspires to be a personal trainer...She really got me thinking. I wanna be and do a lot of things in my life, and I have thought about adding being a personal trainer to my list of things I'd like to do.
She stated no one wants a fat personal trainer...I have to agree there, but none of us here plan to be fat and once we lose the weight we will have insight and truly have walked the many miles that our clients are about to walk. Who better then a person who lost tons of weight to inspire another to loose tons of weight.
Walking through malls...I see those kiosk type vendors with diet products. Hmmm...who is selling this product but a good looking young women or man who looks to never have weighed more than 10 lbs over what looks good on their body. Now why the hell would I wanna buy a weight loss product from someone that clearly never used it or needed to? They stand there telling all the miraculous ways this product will get me to my goals quicker...yeah...uh...NO!
There are some truly great trainers out there, but then there are those that don't truly get nor want to understand the life and trials of a always been fat person with this said no I don't wanna go to the gym and see trainers have never dealt with issues that many of us are facing now, but want to tell me they understand what I am going through...Do you really?
It is truly inspirational to me to see the many people on this site alone that have managed to loose a lot of weight and then remain active to support those of us still fighting to get to that level.
All the studying in the world will never allow a person who has for most if not all of their lives always been healthy to truly understand the life, struggles, and triumphs of those who are fighting to be thin for the first time in their life.
I hope this team member reaches for her goals and goes for what she wants...to make a living inspiring other people to reach for their healthy lifestyle goals.
