I read the blogs of the contestants and my mind and my heart go in so many directions. I wish I could tell them the world isn’t so bad and that if they just keep their chin up everything will be ok, but I can’t lie. The world is not always a pleasant place.
We have freedom of speech, but what about right and wrong? Is it really ok to hurt someone else’s feelings by being verbally abusive? Sometimes those closest to us are the ones contributing to the problem. These women are trying to make life altering changes. Are you following their journey and trying to make changes also? Instead of ordering pizza, try making a salad as a family and talking together, play a game of cards or a board game, put the remote down, take the mouse out of your hand, you never know, you might enjoy the evening as well. Instead of dinner and a movie (and popcorn) on date night, a walk on the beach to watch the sunset. Talk about your day, share your dreams for the future……
The fun we have in the gym is priceless, I see not only physical changes, but I see confidence growing, and smiles getting bigger.They are losing inches and pounds, but gaining so much more.
There are many reasons people turn to food, none of which are usually good. I want my contestants, members and future members to know that there is someone who cares, and it’s me and my staff!!!!!
